Parish-Priest, “I Don’t Say the Creed Because I Do Not Believe in It”

Parish-Priest, “I Don’t Say the Creed Because I Do Not Believe in It”

[Reminds me of the Jesuit who shortly after Vatican II said that the only part of the Apostles’ Creed that he could accept was its statement verifiable from non-Christian (i.e., Jewish and Roman) historical sources: “suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried”]

During midnight-mass on Christmas 2017, Father Fredo Olivero, parish-priest of San Rocca in Turin, Italy, dropped the Creed, the blog of Marco Tosatti reports.

Olivero commented on his decision with the words, “You know why I don’t say the Creed? Because I do not believe in it.” He added, “After many years I have understood that this is a thing which I did not understand and which I could not accept.”

It is self-evident that Olivero’s statements will not have any consequences for him.
