Rorate Caeli: Castrillon Hoyos Speaks; The Reconciliation Process Moves Forward

Rorate Caeli has posted an interesting excerpt from an interview with Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, who has been attacked in recent days over the matter of the lifting of the excommunications.

There he stated again the position of the Pope on the Holocaust and also spoke these words:

"I have always had truth as a rule. The Holy Father knows this. We are moving forward, ensuring that this unity of the Church be rebuilt, and that this schism be completely ended."

"[W]hat is important at this moment is that the Pope has stopped a schism. The charity that Christ wanted to exist in the Church has been remarkably reestablished, and paths of hope are opened."

While the recent controversy surrounding these events was most unfortunate, it is good to see the resolve of Castrillon Hoyos on this matter has not abated.

Please continue to add this matter to your daily prayer intentions.
