The Lord didn’t say it would remain everywhere.
Andrea Tornielli writes, in my fast translation from the Italian
Dear friends, in these days there is talk of a challenge coming from the Austrian clergy. It is advanced by the movement “”pastors initiative” [or “parish priest initiative”] (Paolo Rodari also wrote about it yesterday): as their spokesman Helmut Schüller explains, more than 250 priests have signed an appeal in which they ask that women can be admitted to the priesthood.
The pastors [parroci] wanted to challenge the Holy See openly also on another delicate topic of Communion for the divorced. Schüller said that the Vatican “can’t impose its own convictions on Austrian priests”. A year ago a poll showed that about 80 percent of pastors in the country declare themselves favorable to the abolition of ecclesiastical celibacy.
What to do?
This is, I suppose, why the Holy Father thinks we need to promote a new evangelization.
