Greeting the pilgrims present in St. Peter’s Square for the Sunday AngelusPope Francis turned his thoughts to a Pope he is preparing to canonize.
“Forty years ago Blessed Pope Paul VI – the Pope of modernity – was living his last hours on this earth. He died in the evening of August 6, 1978” he said.
And looking ahead to his canonization that is scheduled to take place on 14 October next, he said
“We remember him with great veneration and gratitude” and while awaiting his canonization, he prayed that “from heaven, may he intercede for the Church and for peace in the world.
Canonization at close of Synod of Bishops
The Vatican officially announced in March that the canonization Mass for Paul VI will take place at the close of the Synod of Bishops, an institution Paul VI himself founded.
Pope Francis had already confirmed that Paul VI would be elevated to sainthood during a conversation with priests and deacons from the Diocese of Rome.
Paul VI, who led the Catholic Church from 1963 to 1978, through the closing of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) is often referred to as the ‘Pope of modernity’ as he oversaw transitions in liturgy, seminary formation, theological study, and many other areas of ecclesiastical life.

One comment on “FrankenPope celebrates Paul VI: ‘the Pope of modernity’

  1. HOW WELL HAS WHAT THE POPE OF MODERNITY INITIATED IN THE CATHOLC CHURCH, FULL OF RESPECT AND VIGOR AT THE TIME OF VATICAN II BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, WORKED OUT AS WE APPROACH THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 2019?

    Posted by Fr. Allan J. McDonald at Sunday, August 05, 2018

    My questions/comments today:

    1. What has happened to the Liturgy and thus the Church that in 2018, in Europe, maybe 5% to 10% of Catholics actually “attend” the Liturgy?

    2. What has happened to seminary formation that has led to a cabal of active homosexual seminarians and priests hating celibacy and creating “rings” of seminarians and priests who prey on each other, those under their care and minors, to include bishops and cardinals of high rank?

    3. What has happened to other areas of ecclesiastical life which has led to the sex abuse scandal that today is mushrooming from abuse of minors to a complete disregard for traditional Catholic sexual morality that has been a “CATASTROPHE” for the Church as described by Sean Cardinal O’Mally of Boston? The Church is irrelevant on the institutional level and ignored by Catholics and others in the world, no longer respected, admired or appreciated for its “moral” voice.

    4. What has happened to the priesthood and religious life today and the number of vocations? Where is the new springtime in all of this?
