You all should check out today’s Monday Vatican by Andrea Gagliarducci.
This week Andrea drills into the circumstances and implications of the recently election of Card. Tagle of Manila as head of Caritas International.
Here is one section:
The progressive wing likes Cardinal Tagle very much, and appreciates the fact that he is part of the editorial committee of the so-called “School of Bologna” that is committed to writing a history of the Second Vatican Council, interpreting it as a rupture with the past – and not according to the hermeneutic of continuity promoted by Benedict XVI.
Cardinal Tagle’s election is thus interpreted as a break with the institutional efforts promoted by Benedict XVI. But saying that Cardinal Tagle is the “Asian Pope Francis”would also represent a contrived interpretation of facts.
There is some examination of the state of the ongoing reform of the Roman Curia… what’s happening and what isn’t. Pope Francis may be figuring out that the Roman Curia isn’t such a useless structure after all. It had to happen.
There is also some focus on Archbp. Fernandez, whose star seems to be sputtering out.
