The Patriarch of Venice is in the Running for the Diocese of Milan

Naturally all questions fall under the seal of papal secrecy. In other words: everyone knows everything.

( Patriarch of Venice, Angelo Cardinal Scola (69) and the prefect of the pointless Pontifical Council for Culture, Gianfranco Cardinal Ravasi (68)are the front leading candidates for the Archdiocese of Milan.

The Milan paper 'Il Giorno' reported this on Saturday.

With 4.9 Million Catholics Milan is one of the largest Diocese in the world.

The current office holder, Dionigi Cardinal Tettamannzi is 77 years old now.

As of March 2009 his age of retirement arrived, and Benedict XVI lengthened his mandate for two more years.

But 'Il Giorno' points out that the appointment of his successor is imminent.

In the beginning of March the Nuncio of Italy sent a letter to all Diocesan Bishops of Lombardy, Auxiliary Bishops of Milan, the Presidents of the regional Bishops Conferences and all Italian Cardinals and even lay representatives of the nation.

Among the lay representatives are members of the left leaning 'Catholic Action' and the neo-Conservative movement 'Communion and Liberation'.

They were all asked to recommend candidates for Milan.

From the applied names the Nuncio produced a list of three which was put to the Vatican Congregation of Bishops.

The prefect of the Bishops Congregation, Marc Cardinal Ouellet, compiled a definitive list of three which is sent to the Pope.

Then finally he makes a decision completely independently.

Actually the consultation till now has proceeded under the so-called "papal secret".

But that doesn't mean anything.

Because 'Il Gioarnno' knows the names which are on the list of three: Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, Cardinal Angelo Scola and Bishop Gianni Ambrosio (67) of Piacenza-Bobbio.

Cardinal ravasi and Cardinal Scola were ordained in Milan as priests.

Pro-Homosexual Abortion Priest of Genoa Goes Unchastened by Cardinal Tettamanzi

Gino Paoli
[Genoa] In another example of unequal  treatment among unequals, Cardinal Tettamanzi of Genoa, according to Messinlatino, has neglected to deal with Father Andrea Gallo and his partner in crime, the "peace" and abortion priest, Don Andrea Gallo, despite the vociferous objection of many of the Faithful. Every Archdiocese seems to have a handful of these more outspoken creatures who go unpunished, and are well-fed, while their more traditional counterparts face expulsion, suspension and the contempt of their superiors and colleagues. 

Heretical Fr. Andrea Gallo has concelebrated Mass with Genoese priest, Gino Paoli, recently where he sang "Bella Ciao" a disrespectful anthem to the Blessed Mother.  After his shocking confession that he's helped prostitutes to have abortions in the Corriere Della Serra a few years ago,  his recent blasphemies during Mass with Father Paoli, Don Gallo's admission might seem rather low key for now, almost an afterthought put on the back burner by Cardinal Tettamanzi, who never the less saw fit to threaten another priest,  the late Christian Democrat, Don Baget Bozzo, who'd criticized him quite lightly in the same day as Dom Gallo's aforementioned admission to Corriere Della Serra.

In any event, the duo were able to promote their peace message of disarmament, and Father Gallo still hasn't made reparations for his scandalous and awful comments about abortion and euthanasia, both of which he promotes alongside his vociferous political campaigning against Silvio Berlusconi which the aforementioned Father Bozzo was a supporter.  It can be supposed that Cardinal Tettamanzi, by tacit approval is, like Don Gallo and Father Paoli, a lover of peace, social-justice, euthanasia and abortion.  Didn't you know they go together?

Oh my poor Genoa, do you miss me now?

A Correction: Old Mass Behind Closed Doors

In relation to a story we'd translated yesterday from where Father Jean-Pierre was not permitted to say the Immemorial Mass of All Ages publicly in Milan, Father was good enough to correct us about the situation, and we're reprinting it here too:

Two corrections : I am not THE secretary of Archbishop Leonard, but only one of the collaborators to his secretariate. Secondly, it was not in Milan's Cathedral, but in Seregno, 60 km from Milan, after a lecture on Blessed Cardinal Newman.
