From the Eponymous Flower
The "Liturgist of the Pope", Andrea Grillo, "takes shots at the new Italian family minister Lorenzo Fontana: The No-Go-Maximum Fontana: He opposes abortion, mass immigration, gay marriage, gender ideology and attends Mass traditional rite.
(Rome) There is a bitter ideological struggle in the Catholic Church. It has been brought into the Church for decades by the side that has appeared in the past under the coat of arms of modernism and progressism. The most recent evidence was provided by the Italian lay theologian Andrea Grillo with a radical attack on Summorum Pontificum and the new Italian Family Minister.
Grillo teaches liturgical sciences at the Pontifical Athenaeum Sant'Anselmo of the Benedictine Order in Rome and is known for his harsh attacks against tradition and everything that stands in the way of actual or supposed "modernization" of the Church. His main enemy for years has been the Motu proprio Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI. His repeatedly voiced fears: Bugnini's liturgical revolution under Paul VI. could be reversed. As a matter of fact, Grillo, who of course knows the actual numbers, tries to crush the delicate plant of tradition. The faster, the better, because: "defend the beginning".
Grillo's attack on Cardinal Sarah
A year ago, Grillo insulted Cardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect of the Roman Congregation for Worship and the Sacraments, as "incompetent and inappropriate." In such a rage Grillo addressed the epilogue contributed by Benedict XVI. to Cardinal Sarah’s book, "The Power of Silence.” Grille has nothing to fear from his degrading scolding of Cardinal Sarah. It demanded no courage, but was a health dose. He only followed Pope Francis, who has already humiliated the Cardinal publicly several times.
