Here is the English translation of link:
(Vatican) Francis Pope took today personnel decisions to another Roman Pontifical Council ago. The Catholic Church leader confirmed Cardinal Angelo Amato as prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints . However, Cardinal Amato will continue only after the formula " Donec aliter provideatur " and thus provisionally in office. In contrast, Pope Francis Archbishop Marcello Bartolucci confirmed as secretary of the Congregation with regular term. This difference in treatment suggests that Cardinal Amato is the future of the Roman Curia , at least as Prefect of the Congregation , not backed up.
Were confirmed or newly appointed as members of the congregation , however, the Cardinals Jean -Claude Turcotte , Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne , Ennio Antonelli, Agostino Vallini , Antonio Cañizares Llovera , Paul Josef Cordes, Angelo Comastri , Stanisław Ryłko , Francesco Monte Risi, Kurt Koch , Paolo Sardi , Velasio de Paolis , Manuel Monteiro de Castro, Santos Abril y Castelló , Francesco Coccopalmerio and James Michael Harvey.

Cardinal Burke fallen out of favor with Pope Francis ? On Monday distant Pope Francis Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke as a member of the Congregation for Bishops (see separate report Other victims of the curia reconstruction - Cardinal Burke removed from the Congregation for Bishops ) . Today he dismissed him as a member of the Congregation of Saints . Pope Francis seems to dismantle the traditional friendly U.S. Cardinal gradually . That Cardinal Burke was not among the Francis - voters , in Rome applies since April as an open secret. Whether he is therefore dropped or because of his partisanship for the extraordinary form of the Roman rite with Pope Francis in disgrace, is not known. Currently, Cardinal Burke is only a member of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments . One of the three Departments of , has not yet decided on the Pope Francis.
Were confirmed or appointed by the Pope , the Consul gates of the Congregation of Saints , including Don Nicola Bux , Bishop Erich Schmid, Monsignor William Imkamp ( Maria Pieta , Diocese of Augsburg) and Christoph Ludwig
by the way, how do we ping?
So the way I read this the Jesuit Pope does not like the Conservative Anti-abortion American Cardinal?
I am of the mind that tis is a very dangerous papacy. The Jesuits have been a very poor example of Catholic orthodoxy for a very long time.
I thought that under Blessed John Paul II, the Jesuits got “cleaned up” bigtime.
Just typethe names of the people whose attention you want in the “To:” box separate with semicolons and post it.
Just like I did above. I just put Black Elk’s screen name in the box and hit post.
This is way too deep for me.
Let me know when the Church starts making Nuns Priests or starts marrying same sex couples, so I can find a new way to practice my faith.
Ping for later
I agree, shame though with other so called Christian churches turning from the Bible, the Catholic Church had a real opportunity to reclaim it’s mantle as the mother church. I am afraid it will lose all credibility as have Anglican and some Methodist and Lutherans.
And you know this because you started the fires for the black smoke and white smoke? LOL!
No way could you know this.
Hard to argue that. The brutal treatment he has unleashed upon the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate speaks for itself. Apparently he is more concerned with stamping out "pelagian" boogeymen than addressing actual corruption and decay within the Church. The fawning media coverage and the praise of him by pro-aborts and by marxists is another red flag. Christians are supposed to be signs of contradiction, hated by the world. Being selected "Person of the Year" by Time and "Person of the Year" by a major gay magazine as a result of soft-peddling Church teaching to the media is a bizarre accomplishment for a Pope.
“....so I can find a new way to practice my faith.”
Check the Creed that we recite at Sunday Mass. Has Francis changed any of it?
Until he does you can continue practicing your faith.
We have had outrageous popes in the past but none changed the articles of faith of the RC church.
True enough but this is the first Pope in this Catholic’s 70 year lifetime that is leaving me with a very queasy feeling in my stomach. I will give him another year or two but so far, his speeches and actions have been rather discomforting.
Is there a civilian review board for the Vatican that I'm not aware of?
It is in the posted article.
OK, I'll wake you up within two years.
The Creed Pope Francis recites at Mass is far from the creed he speaks outside the Mass, in his interviews.
