Pope Francis to remain a few more days in hospital
12 July 2021, 12:55

Pope Francis will remain for a few more days at Rome's Agostino Gemelli Hospital to complete his recovery. His thoughts go to the national football victories of Italy and Argentina and the meaning of sport and its values.
Vatican News

Pope Francis has completed the course of his post-surgical operation treatment and will remain at Rome's Gemelli Hospital a few more days in order to "best optimize the medical and rehabilitation therapy", according to the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni

In his daily medical bulletin, he explained that on Sunday before the recitation of the Angelus, the Pope met with patients of the nearby oncology ward with members of their families. The patients later accompanied the Pope on the tenth floor terrace for the Angelus, as seen on the coverage of the event.

Afterwards, the Pope greeted patients on the floor, talking briefly with the medical and nursing staff. In the afternoon, he celebrated Mass in the private chapel with the staff who assist him daily.

Pope Francis to visit Scotland ‘for a very short time’ in November
By CNA Staff
Glasgow, Scotland, Jul 12, 2021 / 05:30 am

Pope Francis will visit Scotland “for a very short time” in November, a spokesperson for the country’s bishops’ conference said Monday.

The pope is expected to attend the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) taking place in Glasgow on Nov. 1-12.

“The pope will be in Scotland for a very short time, most of which will be spent participating in the COP26 conference,” the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland spokesperson said July 12.

“While many pastoral, ecumenical, and interfaith gatherings would be desirable while he is with us, time constraints sadly mean such a full program will not be possible.”

During a visit to the Vatican in May, John Kerry, U.S. President Joe Biden’s special envoy for climate, noted that the pope “intends to attend” the U.N. Climate Change Conference.

Kerry met with Pope Francis privately on May 15. In a video clip released by the Vatican, Kerry could be heard telling members of his staff, “first day he’ll be there with the heads of state.”

A “world leaders’ summit” is scheduled to take place on Nov. 1-2, the opening two days of the meeting.

The bishop-elect has served as vicar general and moderator of the curia in the Diocese of Belleville, in southern Illinois, since Oct. 1, 2020.

2020 ASIF Report shows constant improvement
15 July 2021, 14:04

An extensive account of the activity carried in the past year, an analysis of Moneyval’s positive judgment in the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism, the current state of regulation, supervision and financial information as well as of international cooperation are highlighted in the ASIF 2020 Report published on 16 July, 2021
By Vatican News

The Holy See ranks among the most virtuous jurisdictions in the world in certain areas, such as finance, the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism. This is according to the Supervisory and Financial Information Authority (ASIF) 2020 Report, published today.

The report also highlights the effectiveness of domestic and international cooperation. It reveals the existence of 89 reports of suspicious activities in 2020, and of 16 reports sent to the Office of the Promoter of Justice. 49 requests for information were exchanged with other Vatican Authorities, concerning 124 subjects. This, the Report notes, is a sign of "important growth compared to the previous year," confirming the considerable synergies created between the institutions of the Holy See and Vatican City State in the fight against criminal activities.

Thanks to two memoranda of understanding on an international platform, and due to the active collaboration of Vatican investigative forces, ASIF exchanged 58 requests for information with foreign Financial Information Units (FIU) on 196 subjects and sent 19 spontaneous communications regarding 104 subjects.

The Report describes the decrease of the use of cash in the Vatican as progressive.  It says this trend is also due to the availability of other systems of money transfer carried out by the IOR (the Vatican Bank) to guarantee better standards of security and traceability.

New norms regarding use of 1962 Roman Missal: Bishops given greater responsibility
16 July 2021, 12:10

Pope Francis publishes a motu proprio on Friday to redefine the use of the pre-Vatican missal granting the decision to allow its use the local bishops. Groups attending the pre-Vatican liturgy must not deny the validity of the liturgical reform dictated by the Second Vatican Council and the magisterium of the Supreme Pontiffs.
By Vatican News

After consulting the bishops throughout the world, Pope Francis has decided to modify the norms regulating the use of the 1962 missal granted 14 years ago by his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, as the “extraordinary form of the Roman Rite”. The Pope has published the Motu proprio Traditionis custodes, dated 16 July 2021, regarding the use of the Roman liturgy prior to 1970. It is accompanied by a letter in which he explains the reasons behind his decision. Here are the main points.

The responsibility to regulate the celebration of the pre-conciliar liturgy returns to the Bishop, as the moderator of the liturgical life of the diocese: “it his exclusive competence to authorize the use of the 1962 Roman Missal in his diocese, according to the guidelines of the Apostolic See”. The bishop is to verify that groups already celebrating the liturgy with the 1962 Missal “do not deny the validity and the legitimacy of the liturgical reform, dictated by Vatican Council II and the Magisterium of the Supreme Pontiffs”.

Masses celebrated according to the 1962 Missal are not to take place any longer in parishes. Bishops are to establish both the location(s) where and the days on which it will be celebrated. It is required that the readings be proclaimed “in the vernacular language”, using the translations approved by the Episcopal Conferences. The celebrant will be delegated by the bishop. The latter is also to evaluate whether or not to retain the celebration of the pre-Vatican liturgy according to its “effectiveness for spiritual growth”. It is also necessary that the designated priest not only have at heart the correct celebration of the liturgy, but also the pastoral and spiritual care of the faithful. The Bishop is “to take care not to authorize the establishment of new groups”.

Priests ordained after the publication of today’s Motu proprio who want to celebrate the pre-conciliar liturgy, “should submit a formal request to the diocesan Bishop who shall consult the Apostolic See before granting this authorization”. While those who are already doing so may request from their diocesan Bishop the authorization to continue. The institutes of consecrated life and societies of apostolic life, “erected by the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei”, will now come under the competence of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life. The Dicastery for Divine Worship and the Dicastery for Institutes of Consecrated Life will monitor the observance of these new provisions.

Dear Brothers in the Episcopate,

Just as my Predecessor Benedict XVI did with Summorum Pontificum, I wish to accompany the Motu proprio Traditionis custodes with a letter explaining the motives that prompted my decision. I turn to you with trust and parresia, in the name of that shared “solicitude for the whole Church, that contributes supremely to the good of the Universal Church” as Vatican Council II reminds us.[1]

Breaking: Pope Francis issues restrictions on extraordinary form Masses in new motu proprio
By CNA Staff
Vatican City, Jul 16, 2021 / 04:45 am

Pope Francis issued a motu proprio on Friday restricting Masses celebrated in the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite.

In the motu proprio, issued July 16, the pope made sweeping changes to his predecessor Benedict XVI’s 2007 apostolic letter Summorum Pontificum, which acknowledged the right of all priests to say Mass using the Roman Missal of 1962, which is in Latin.

In an accompanying letter to bishops explaining his decision, Pope Francis wrote: “In defense of the unity of the Body of Christ, I am constrained to revoke the faculty granted by my Predecessors. The distorted use that has been made of this faculty is contrary to the intentions that led to granting the freedom to celebrate the Mass with the Missale Romanum [Roman Missal] of 1962.”

The motu proprio, known as Traditionis custodes (“Guardians of the tradition”) and dedicated to “the use of the Roman Liturgy prior to the reform of 1970,” contains eight articles that go into immediate effect.

Pope's Plan to Restrict Traditional Latin Mass Backed by Two Curial Cardinals
Written by  Diane Montagna

VATICAN CITY, June 1, 2021 — The Remnant has independently confirmed that a Vatican document restricting Pope Benedict XVI’s apostolic letter Summorum Pontificum is backed by at least two Vatican cardinals, is in its third draft, and threatens to thwart the growth of the Traditional Latin Mass and other sacraments particularly among diocesan clergy.
 
Concerns over possible curtailments of the Extraordinary Form arose after the CDF sent a letter to the presidents of bishops’ conferences worldwide asking them to distribute a nine-point questionnaire about Summorum Pontificum. Cardinal Ladaria said the questionnaire was issued because the Pope wanted to be “informed about the current application” of the apostolic letter.

Approximately thirty percent of the world’s bishops responded to the questionnaire, and more than half of those who responded had a favorable or neutral response, multiple sources confirmed.

One source familiar with the consultation document said that, although the questions were notably biased against Summorum Pontificum, or formulated in a manner that did not always elicit a clear and specific response, what emerged from the questionnaire is how the Traditional Latin Mass has taken root. It has revealed that even in unexpected places, the old Mass is embraced and loved by young people and families, is bearing fruit in flourishing parishes, priestly and religious vocations, and in greater prayer and devotion among the faithful.

On May 31, the French traditional website Paix Liturgique, which was among the first to report on the forthcoming document, published an article titled, “The Summorum Pontificum Galaxy Prepares to Resist!”

Describing Summorum Pontificum as “provisions for peace” that “sought to bring peace to a Church that was sinking deeper and deeper into crisis,” the authors note how “from the very beginning, the traditional movement has been grounded in the action of laymen.”

Pope at Angelus: We need to develop an “ecology of the heart”
18 July 2021, 12:19

Addressing the faithful in Saint Peter's Square for the Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis says we need an "ecology of the heart" developed through "rest, contemplation and compassion". And the summer is a good time to do this.
Vatican News staff writer

After a two-week absence, Pope Francis appeared once again at the window of the Apostolic Palace overlooking Saint Peter’s Square for the noontime Sunday Angelus. A week ago he led the Angelus prayer from Rome’s Gemelli Hospital, greeting crowds below from the tenth floor balcony where he was recovering from intestinal surgery that took place a week earlier. The Pope returned to the Vatican on Wednesday.

In his reflections before leading the recitation of the Angelus, the Pope drew from the Gospel of the Sunday liturgy, which recounts when the Apostles return enthusiastically from their missionary labors and Jesus invites them to “Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and rest a while” (Mk 6:31). Jesus offers us an important teaching here, the Pope observed, as He is concerned about their wellbeing due to the physical or interior tiredness, even though He rejoices on seeing their happiness over the success of their preaching.

Synod of Bishops publishes list of commission members
Junno Arocho Esteves  Jul 20, 2021
CATHOLIC NEWS SERVICE

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican released the names of members of two commissions charged with assisting the leaders of the Synod of Bishops’ general secretariat in reviewing documents, drafting resources and developing best practices.

According to the synod website, the theological commission and the methodology commission will include religious and lay experts from around the world.

The theme chosen by the pope for the next synod is: “For a synodal church: communion, participation and mission.”

Cardinal Mario Grech, secretary-general of the Synod of Bishops, told Vatican News in May that, although originally scheduled for 2022, the synod will take place in October 2023 to allow for broader consultation at the diocesan, national and regional level.

In revisions to the synod process announced in May, Pope Francis has asked that it begin with consultations with laypeople on the diocesan level before the discussion and discernment moved to a national level and then the 2023 synod assembly itself.

The nine questions that sealed the fate of the Latin Mass
Inés San Martín  Jul 20, 2021

ROME – Last Friday, Pope Francis rolled back what some considered his predecessor’s olive branch to traditionalist Catholics by severely restricting celebration of the old Latin Mass. The move essentially reversed a liberalization of the older rite decreed by Pope emeritus Benedict XVI in 2007.

When announcing their decisions, both popes said they had been made hoping to promote unity in the Church, with Francis arguing that Benedict’s reform had become a source of division and been exploited by Catholics who dispute the Second Vatican Council from the mid-1960s. In Francis’s case, he also said the decision was based on a wide consultation with the world’s bishops.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican’s doctrinal watchdog agency, sent a questionnaire, at the pope’s request, to bishops’ conferences last year. Crux obtained a copy of the survey, titled “consultation of bishops on the application of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum.”

The survey contained nine questions:
 
After consulting some 20 prelates from the five corners of the world, Crux found that each bishops’ conference received the questionnaire and decided on their own how to implement it. In some countries, such as Chile, archbishops received it but not ordinary bishops. In neighboring Argentina, every bishop received it but many didn’t answer because there’s no significant presence of priests and faithful who favor the Tridentine Mass in their area.

In the United States, the questionnaire was reportedly sent to every bishop, though at least one “didn’t recall” receiving it, and if he did, he said he didn’t respond. In Australia every diocese received it, but in Europe and in Africa its distribution seems to have been more uneven.

To date, the Vatican has not revealed exactly how many bishops around the world actually received the survey, and, of that number, how many chose to respond.

Prayer for World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly
23 July 2021, 14:00

The Vatican Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life on Friday released the video-prayer for the Catholic Church’s first World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly, which will be observed worldwide on Sunday, July 25.
By Robin Gomes

“I thank You, Lord, for the comfort of Your presence.” These are the opening words of the prayer for World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly that the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life released on Friday in a video format.  Led by Pope Francis in Spanish, the video-prayer continues in French, English, Portuguese and Italian, recited by 21 grandparents and elderly men and women from around the globe, including 4 couples.  Among them is also 101-year-old retired Canadian Bishop Laurent Noël op of Trois-Rivières, Québec.

Gratitude

Pope Francis starts the prayer in Spanish thanking the Lord for the comfort of His presence which provides hope and confidence even in moments of loneliness.  The Pontiff, who is 84, recalls that the Lord has been his rock and fortress since his youthful days.

Then other languages follow in turns, expressing gratitude for the gift of the family and long life, for life’s joys and difficulties and for helping in the realization of life’s dreams and of those that are still to come.

Pope Francis' Traditional Latin Mass restrictions: Has your diocese responded yet?
By Joe Bukuras
Denver Newsroom, Jul 23, 2021 / 13:00 pm

Catholic clergy and lay people around the world continue to react passionately to newly imposed restrictions on the use of the Traditional Latin Mass, one week after Pope Francis released his controversial apostolic letter Traditionis Custodes.

In his motu proprio issued July 16, the pope recognized the “exclusive competence” of bishops to authorize or refuse the Latin Mass in their respective dioceses, and he directed bishops to ensure that groups dedicated to the “extraordinary form” do not deny the validity of Vatican II and its liturgical reforms. The pope also declared that Traditional Latin Masses can no longer be offered at “parochial churches,” and he ordered that readings must be in the vernacular.
 
To date the official response to the document from U.S. bishops has been muted, with 152 dioceses having said nothing publicly yet about their plans to implement the pope’s new rules.

Most of the few dozen bishops who have issued statements have chosen temporarily to allow the Traditional Latin Mass to continue in their dioceses while they review the document, while others have restricted Latin Masses in certain parish churches. Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield in Illinois issued a canonical dispensation from the document for two parish churches, allowing the Traditional Latin Mass to continue at those locations.

Below is a state-by-state list of episcopal statements on the state of the Traditional Latin Mass in their respective dioceses, as of July 23:
