Pope chooses Protestant to produce Argentine edition of Vatican newspaper

[It may be known as L’Osservatore Protestanto or L’Osservatore Ecumenico or L’Osservatore Bergogliano]

Catholic World News – July 12, 2016

Pope Francis has chosen Marcelo Figueroa, a Protestant theologian and a personal friend, to edit an Argentine edition of L’Osservatore Romano.

Beginning in September, Figueroa will edit an Argentine publication that combines material from the weekly Spanish-language edition of L’Osservatore Romano with local content. He told the Crux news site that he plans to rely on Catholic and non-Catholic sources, to give the newspaper ecumencial appeal.

Figueroa told Crux: “We want to spread Francis’ universal, pastoral work, in a way that reaches every Argentine.”

  1. The Holy Father could have picked that atheist Scalfari. The Vatican through the ecumenical lens of one who doesn’t believe in God. But then that’s been done before.

    It figures that the revamped “mouthpiece” Crux is used to get out the word. Or the spin. (Unless I’m missing where the comment section is to refute the articles they’re pumping out.)

    But then commentators who prefer to stay clear of a Catholic interpretation of the Vatican outpourings likely don’t want to be critiqued, or guided too closely toward the Catholic Faith.

    Then it could be called L’Osservatore Ateistico or L’Osservatore Scalfariano, but that already exists as Scalfari’s La Reppublica, which “spread(s) Francis’ universal, pastoral work, in a way that reaches every [atheist and leftist]”.

  3. A Protestant editor for a Protestant rag for a Protestant Church. Sounds about right.
