Cardinal Confesses: Benedict XVI Was Promoting His Theological Enemies

Liberal Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi has revealed to Corriere.it (June 16) that Benedict XVI promoted him although he was aware of the fact that they [allegedly] did not share the same theological convictions.

Nevertheless, Benedict appointed Ravasi as the head of the Pontifical Council for Culture and even made him a cardinal.

Ravasi admits that he organized his “Courtyard of the Gentiles”- a discussion club for non-believers – “ in a way that was a little different from what he had thought, yet he allowed me to and supported me.”

I remember he appointed Archbishop Piero Marini head of the International Eucharistic Congress. There were other appointments too of this nature. One could easily form the impression that it was a policy. It appeared His Holiness put people face to face with their own shortcomings in the hope of their illumination. He himself admitted that he really started to appreciate the wisdom of the Church's Tradition when he had to defend it against attack when employed at the CDF. Would that intellectual humility and honesty were more prevalent among his appointees. Their anomalous appointments might have been the making of them. Cardinal Ravasi would have had to make the case for Catholicism proper. Archbishop Marini would have had to pretend he cared .
His Holiness had the same openness as the Austro-Hungarian Empire where although during war times mail was not censored and the officer corps could receive papers as "Die Waffen nieder!" without any problems.
