Italy: Pope Francis “broke Benedict’s heart” – I “blame” the associate of the pontiff emeritus


Sensation in Italy from the statements of the Catholic priest Georg Genswein

Statements by the Catholic clergy caused a sensation in Italy Georg Genswein, a close associate (former secretary) of Pope Emeritus Benedict. In an interview with the German newspaper Die Tagespost, Father Georg stated that Pope Francis’ decision, which was taken in 2021, to limit the possibility of celebrating the Divine Liturgy in Latin, “broke Benedict’s heart.”

“I think that reading this decision of Francis, Benedict’s heart was broken. The intention of Pope Benedict (who had liberalized the liturgy in Latin in 2007, s.s.) was only to help those who felt familiar with the old liturgy to find inner peace as well,” said the secretary of the deceased. pontiff.

Francis, however, with his decision, two years ago, condemned “the instrumentalization of the function in the Latin language’, considering this attitude to be a rejection of the reforms adopted by the Second Vatican Council, which ended in 1965.
