Pope will not undo the Council

D: „Papst will Konzil nicht rückgängig machen“

The highest placed Benedictine monk, Abbot Primate Notker Wolf opposes the fear that Pope Benedict XVI wants to erode the Second Vatican Council. In the final analysis, Joseph Ratzinger was a key adviser in those days, writes Wolf on Tuesday in an article for the "Süddeutsche Zeitung". The purpose of the Pope is much more to present this Council not as a break with the history of the tradition of the Faith. He wanted to integrate the Council more closely in that tradition. Further, Wolf reminded that the withdrawal of the excommunication of the Lefebvre-bishops still meant no full unity of the Church of Rome with these bishops and their faithful. "That is still a long way off," said Wolf.

Wearing dark sunglasses, a baseball cap and an overcoat, Williamson was seen by a Reuters reporter in Argentina's main international airport as he entered the boarding area. He did not respond to questions.

People accompanying Williamson had been seen at the British Airways ticket counter earlier. On Sunday, priest Miguel Faure of the same religious order told Reuters he believed Williamson would travel to England.

Christian Bouchacourt, the head of the Latin American chapter of the Catholic Society Saint Pius X, confirmed Williamson was leaving Argentina but declined to specify his destination, saying "we want a little tranquillity."

Pope cautions against destructive polemics in the Church

Following weeks of controversy involving two of his decisions, Pope Benedict XVI has twice cautioned against destructive polemics inside the church.

The pope, speaking in German at his noon blessing Feb. 22, asked for prayers to St. Peter so that "disturbances and storms do not shake the church" and that Catholics remain united in faith and love.

Two days earlier, addressing students at Rome's diocesan seminary, the pope recalled St. Paul's admonition to Galatian Christians not to "go on biting and devouring one another" but instead to be guided by the Spirit.

"St. Paul refers here to the polemics that emerge where faith degenerates into intellectualism and humility is replaced by the arrogance of being better than the other," the pope said.

"We see clearly that today, too, there are similar situations where, instead of joining in communion with Christ, in the body of Christ which is the church, each one wants to be superior to the other and with intellectual arrogance maintains that he is better," he said.

"And in this way arise polemics that are destructive, and there arises a caricature of the church, which should have a single soul and a single heart," he said.
