TOLEDO, mercoledì, 8 luglio 2009 (ZENIT.org).- Il sacerdote Juan Miguel Ferrer Grenesche, finora vicario generale dell’Arcidiocesi di Toledo (Spagna), ha ricevuto "con una grande gioia e profonda pace" la nomina a secondo sottosegretario della Congregazione per il Culto Divino e la Disciplina dei Sacramenti.
In un messaggio pubblicato sulla pagina web dell’Arcivescovado di Toledo, il sacerdote segnala: "Con l’aiuto di Dio, spero di essere fedele e di svolgere bene il mio nuovo compito come servizio alla Chiesa universale".
Il presbitero ringrazia il Papa per il suo "gesto di paterna sollecitudine e fiducia" nell’avergli affidato questo incarico e si congeda dall’Arcidiocesi di Toledo "ringraziando tutti" e chiedendo "perdono se ho offeso qualcuno qui, o se qualche cosa non l’ho saputa fare o non l’ho fatta bene".
Il sacerdote, la cui nomina è stata resa pubblica sabato 4 luglio, tornerà ad essere al servizio del Cardinale Antonio Cañizares, attuale prefetto del dicastero.
Quando era Arcivescovo di Toledo, il Cardinale ha nominato Ferrer Grenesche vicario generale, nel 2002, ed economo diocesano, nel 2007.
Juan Miguel Ferrer Grenesche è nato a Madrid il 29 maggio 1961. Ha studiato Teologia all’Istituto Teologico di Sant’Ildefonso di Toledo e ha ricevuto l’ordinazione sacerdotale nel 1986.
Ha conseguito il dottorato in Liturgia Sacra presso il Pontificio Istituto Liturgico Sant’Anselmo di Roma, e in seguito è stato nominato direttore del Segretariato Diocesano di Liturgia di Toledo. A Roma ha conseguito anche il diploma in Arte Sacra.
Oltre a dirigere il Segretariato Diocesano di Liturgia, è stato anche direttore della Casa Sacerdotale di Toledo dal 1991 al 1994. Da quell’anno è stato docente di Liturgia presso l’Istituto Teologico Sant’Ildefonso.
Nel 2006 è stato nominato Cappellano Magistrale del Sovrano Ordine Militare di Malta. E’ stato consultore della Commissione Episcopale di Liturgia della Conferenza Episcopale Spagnola, e il 22 aprile scorso è stato nominato da Papa Benedetto XVI consultore della Congregazione per il Culto Divino e la Disciplina dei Sacramenti.
L’altro sottosegretario del dicastero è padre Joseph Augustine Di Noia, O.P., la cui nomina è stata resa pubblica il 15 giugno scorso. [No. He is the Secretary, not another "under secretary".]

Food For Thought
“The legalization of the termination of pregnancy is none other than the authorization given to an adult, with the approval of an established law, to take the lives of children yet unborn and thus incapable of defending themselves. It is difficult to imagine a more unjust situation, and it is very difficult to speak of obsession in a matter such as this, where we are dealing with a fundamental imperative of every good conscience — the defense of the right to life of an innocent and defenseless human being.”

More food for thought…
“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded— here and there, now and then— are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as ‘bad luck.’”
