Vatican official, now archbishop, returns to post on traditionalists

 | 

A former official at the Vatican office responsible for reaching out to Catholic priests in schism with the church over the Second Vatican Council has been returned to the post, less than a year after being moved away.

Guido Pozzo, a curial official who was made an archbishop in the interim period, is once again the secretary for the pontifical commission "Ecclesia Dei."

The commission, a part of the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, is primarily responsible for reaching out to members of the Society of St. Pius X.

Pope denounces 'poison' of consumerism in 'society based on profit'

Pope Francis denounced consumerism as a poison that threatens true happiness, which comes from membership in the church.

The pope made his remarks Sunday before praying the Angelus with a noontime crowd in St. Peter's Square.

"The encounter with the living Jesus, in the great family that is the church, fills the heart with joy, because it fills it with true life, a profound goodness that does not pass away or decay," he said.
