(Rome) In the Diocese of Cassano all'Jonio in Calabria peculiar bishops seem to have a certain "tradition." In 2014, Pope Francis appointed Msgr. Nunczio Galantino as the Secretary General of the Italian Bishops' Conference.
Galantino served as "man of the Pope" until 2018 in his office and provided for the "right" course in the Episcopal Conference.In May 2017, Pope Francis was also able to re-appoint the President.This is when Galantino's star began to fade, because two "bosses" frustrate each other.Last summer, Francis promoted him to the Roman Curia and appointed him Prefect of the Apostolic Patrimony Administration (APSA).An office that could soon even be a cardinal's office.
Galantino's tenure as the head of the Bishops' Conference was enough to voice disparaging remarks about devout Catholics praying in front of abortion clinics to rescue unborn children and end abortion.And enough time to bargain behind closed doors with the then Italian left-wing government for a "compromise" on "gay marriage," while the bishops' conference and the Vatican failed millions of Italians opposed to "gay marriage" and the introduction the gender ideology at the schools went to the streets.Also enough time to hold dubious catecheses for adolescents, such as the falsification of the Bible, according to which God "saved" the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah at the request of Abraham.
In spring 2015, Pope Francis appointed a successor to Galantino's orphaned diocese Cassano all'Jonio.In May of that year, Msgr. Francesco Savino was ordained as the new diocesan bishop and took over the leadership of the southern Italian diocese.
Bishop Savino has so far received no attention outside his diocese: this has changed now with his message to the young people of his diocese.In it he quoted various modern musicians, including the Italian hip-hop singer Jovanotti alias Lorenzo Cherubini.
Messa in Latino wrote: "This is neither prohibited nor did the bishop cite any heresies.He simply quoted 'only' banalities like these:
"Whether there is a god, maybe yes, maybe no, boh.But I hear the stories, ready to believe a little bit.That we are children of somebody.The rest is all to do first.I have no roots, but feet to go'."
