“Pope Benedict XVI has named Archbishop Augustine Di Noia, O.P., to the post of vice president of the Pontifical Commission ‘Ecclesia Dei’. The appointment of a high-ranking prelate to this position is a sign of the Holy Father’s pastoral solicitude for traditionalist Catholics in communion with the Holy See and his strong desire for the reconciliation of those traditionalist communities not in union with the See of Peter.” Archbishop Joseph Augustine DiNoia, O.P. is one of the great theologians of the Church. He is an extraordinary teacher, a holy and humble man.So, it is no wonder that the Lord keeps choosing this son of St. Dominic for such important tasks. Pray for him and his vital assignment.
Pope Benedict’s tireless effort to heal a rift within the Church which began 24 years ago – and finally end the division between the SSPX and Rome – is one more sign that his paternal heart beats with the desire for unity revealed in the Sacred Heart of Jesus. “Father, may they be one. so that the world may believe.” (John 17:21) We add a hearty “Amen” to his efforts. We invite our readers around the globe to join with us in focused prayer for a fruitful result.
