A weekly summary of events in the Christian world by Imrich Gazda, editor-in-chief of the World of Christianity. Archbishop Róbert Bezák accompanied by Slovak bishops in Šaštín. Photo: Postoj/Andrej Lojan In the current summary, you will learn: how Pope Francis surprised Archbishop Bezák, what emotion this case evokes after ten years, that Martin Kramara ended as KBS spokesperson. When the residents of Bernolákov went to the evening mass last Friday, they had no idea what a surprise would await them. The main celebrant was Archbishop Róbert Bezák, who, in addition to the local priest, was accompanied by two other unknown priests. From the lips of the archbishop, who lives in this village near Bratislava and from time to time celebrates mass in the local church, the faithful learned that they were messengers from the Vatican. Pope Francis sent them to express his closeness to Bezák and to celebrate the service with him, during which he commemorated the 38th anniversary of his priestly ordination. On the part of the current head of the church, this was another paternal gesture towards the archbishop, whom exactly ten years ago – on July 2, 2012 – his predecessor Benedict XVI. dismissed from the post of archbishop of Trnava. This decision caused a shock in Slovak society and left a deep wound in the local church. “To this day, it is not clear to what extent he became a victim of intrigue as an unconventional archbishop and to what extent his sometimes unnecessarily uncollegial behavior played a role,” wrote the editor-in-chief of Postoj daily Martin Hanus after the Holy Father’s visit to Slovakia in September. During it, Francis not only personally met with the archbishop emeritus (he had done so several times before in the Vatican), but with a joint prayer meeting in the Šaština basilica, he tried to open the closed door between Bezák and the other Slovak bishops. “Pope Francis has already done everything for Bezák and his church to turn the page and start a new chapter,” Martin Hanus concluded his comment from last year with hope. Read also Commentary The end of one trauma What Francis obliged Róbert Bezák and the Slovak bishops to do How to deal with the Šaštín message that Pope Francis left here after four days. After nine months, we have to unfortunately admit that no reverse letter or new chapter is taking place. Simply, where mutual goodwill is lacking, not even the Pope can do anything. After the first meeting between Francis and Bezák, which was mediated by the late Czech cardinal Miloslav Vlk in 2015, many expected that the new pope would decide to officially rehabilitate the dismissed archbishop. Despite the expressions of solidarity and sympathy, however, there is no revision of the case. Pope Francis respects the decision of his predecessor and does not change anything about it. Given the style of the current pontiff, it can be assumed that if he came across legitimate reasons, he would not be afraid to do so. It seems that after ten years, any hope for change – in Bezák’s position and in the healing of the mutual relationship between him and the Slovak episcopate – has faded. And at the same time, I would like to be wrong in this statement. Other events in brief Martin Kramara has finished as the spokesman of KBS, from July 1 he will work as vicar general of the Žilina diocese. The court in Dolný Kubín convicted a Catholic priest of abusing a minor girl, sentencing him to a three-year sentence suspended for four years. The Pope indirectly criticized Russia. According to Francis, armed conquest and imperialism have nothing to do with the kingdom announced by Jesus Christ. New archbishops from all over the world received the pallia from the Pope for the feast of the apostles Peter and Paul, among them was the new archbishop of Prague, Jan Graubner. The Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, Nancy Pelosi, despite supporting abortions, received the Eucharist in the Vatican and met with Pope Francis. The Vatican has launched its own version of a Nota Bene-style street newspaper. The monthly magazine L’Osservatore di Strada (Street Observer) wants to “give a voice to the voiceless”. A record 360,000 people left the Catholic Church in Germany last year, and committed believers are also leaving. Two Catholic priests were killed in Nigeria, the country with the highest number of Christian deaths in the world. A 75-year-old religious sister was murdered in Haiti. Luisa Dell’Orto of the Little Sisters of Jesus was the victim of a robbery in the capital Port-au-Prince. Don’t miss the Synod at the Neighbors Even in Moravia they are solving access to divorcees, in Pilsen they want to have the right to dismiss the parish priest The Czech Diocese has published the conclusions of the discussion in the parishes. There was also a call for an archbishop with a human heart. The Pope and the Jews The open Vatican archives have released new testimonies. Will they change the view of Pius XII? The Holy See recently published the so-called Pacelli’s list. However, the opinions of historians still differ. There was also a controversy in our country. Pilgrimages without restrictions Organizers of pilgrimages at the end of summer are slightly concerned, pilgrims are returning gradually Pilgrimages in Levoča and Nitra will be held without restrictions. Events at the end of summer are accompanied by uncertainty on the part of the organizers. Another important ruling of the US Supreme Court The school must not deny the coach the constitutional right to pray publicly after the game. World Meeting of Families It is not enough to take a trip with families, but one must answer the deep questions of a person Priest Róbert Neupauer evaluates the World Meeting of Families in Rome. Book point He protected the city of Rome from the Huns and the Vandals, theologically substantiated the teaching about the divine and human nature of Jesus Christ, and his pontificate is one of the longest in history. Those of you who are interested in the history of the church may already guess that this description hides Pope Leo I, who was the first to receive the surname Veľký. Professor of theology and Jesuit Miloš Lichner is devoted to this personality in his new publication Theological World of Pope Saint Leo the Great in Contemporary Context (Dobrá kniha, 2022). In the first part of the book, the author presents the basic elements of Leo’s Christology and ecclesiology, the second part contains the first Slovak translation of Leo’s most important homilies and letters. “The current work will help the willing reader to better understand the development of theology as well as various contextual and historically conditioned facts of the formation of the early church world. The personality of Pope St. “Leo I. the Great greatly influenced not only his time, but also the future direction of the church,” recommends the Nitra bishop and church historian Viliam Judák. I wish you a weekend full of light!
