The other day Pope Francis made some appointments to the new Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life, established ad experimentum. It will probably be made into a congregation, at least I guess it will be, since Pastor bonus is still in force. Who knows?
An a related appointment, Francis appointed to be President of the “Giovanni Paolo II” Institute for the Family, Msgr. Pierangelo Sequeri, who has been the President of the Theological Faculty of Northern Italy of Milan.
Sequeri… Sequeri… how do we know that name?
Here’s how! He wrote this! AKA “Symbolon ’77”.
I can’t say how many times I heard this. There is no priest in Italy who has not suffered with this racket.
He has some other hits like “Madre io vorrei” and “E sono solo un Uomo”.
This enervating… stuff… is still heard in parishes and, gulp, seminaries all over Italy, with the predictable long-term, epicene effects.
