Archbishop Osoro Will Now Participate in Cardinal Müller's Book Presentation After All

Cardinal Müller may not present his book at the Archdiocesan
University.  But will at least participate at the presentation.
(Madrid) Archbishop Carlos Osoro of Madrid is backpedaling. According to the media reports about his ban against Cardinal Gerhard Müller, the Archbishop of Madrid has once again considered it.  He will now take part in the book presentation, which will take place due to Osoro's ban, now at the University Francisco de Vitoria.
As reported yesterday,  Madrid's Archbishop Carlos Osoro had made ​​an unprecedented affront to Cardinal Gerhard Müller, Prefect of the CDF.
From German Cardinal talking book "appeared recently in Spain Informe sobre la esperanza " (About Hope's Place). The book situates itself on the side of the Church's position, calling a spade a spade. In the course of treatment within the Church discussions, for example, through the sacrament of marriage, divorce and homosexuality, it also contains criticism of Pope Francis' administration. Thus the Cardinal explains  that 500 Years of Reformation is "nothing  for Catholics to celebrate." It's an answer to the common Reformation commemoration that Pope Francis is planning along with the Lutheran World Federation, and will travel on 31 October 2016, to Stockholm.

Osoro accused publisher of asserting a "non-existent" conflict

Next week Cardinal Müller will present his book in several Spanish cities. A German edition, and other translations are in preparation.
The presentation in Madrid was to be held at the Archbishop's University San Dámaso, which is also connected with the seminary of the Archdiocese.
However, Archbishop Osoro  justified his ban of Cardinal Müller on the grounds that his book was "against the Pope."
A week ago things had sounded quite different. At the Spring Plenary Assembly of the Spanish Bishops' Conference of 18-22nd April Osoro criticized the publisher, the prestigious Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos (BAC), on the grounds that the book had asserted a "conflict" between Pope Francis and Cardinal Müller that did not exist in reality.
The "non-existent conflict" must exist since Archbishop Osoro even tried to exercise censorship against the Cardinal Prefect of the CDF.

Osoro, because  of criticism over a "fake resume," will now participate

Osoro, appointed by Pope Francis as Archbishop of Madrid in the fall of 2014, is currently in the spotlight himself. On his appointment, he referred to four Licentiates, which he had acquired during his academic training. According to Infovaticana  his resume had been "faked" and he does not have a single licentiate. Anyway, according to the Spanish news site, they can't find any trace of them in any of the  universities mentioned.
Following the ban by the Archbishop the organizers did not cancel the presentation, but sought for a new venue. The book launch will be taking place at the University Francisco de Vitoria. Also the competent diocesan bishop was also invited, as in all places where Cardinal Müller presents his book. However Osoro declined to participate.
According to recent media reports, however, there was a turnaround. Archbishop Osoro is now to attend the book launch at the University Francisco de Vitoria as Infovaticana announced.

Archbishop Bans Cardinal Müller From University Because New Book is, "Against the Pope"

(Madrid) Pope's confidant as a censor? Madrid Archbishop Carlos Osoro Sierra forbade Cardinal Gerhard Müller, Prefect of the faith of the Catholic Church, to present his latest book "Informe sobre la esperanza" (State of  Hope) at the Catholic University of San Dámaso present in Madrid. The reasoning? Because it was "a book against the pope."
The renowned Spanish Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos (BAC), whose director is the priest Carlos Granados, led the interview with Cardinal Müller, on which the book was based, has invited the German cardinal for next week to Spain in order to present the interview book  in Valencia, Madrid and Oviedo.
The book is about the situation of the Church.The title is a reference to the famous book, published 30 years ago this week by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and Vittorio Messori "State of the faith". The content promises the same explosiveness. A German edition is already in preparation.

Archbishop of Madrid Prohibits Book Launch

"Informe sobre la esperanza" - The new book by Cardinal Müller
In Madrid, the Spanish capital, the presentation was to take place at the Archdiocesan  University San Dámaso, which doubles as a seminary of the Archdiocese of Madrid. But Archbishop Osoro banned the book launch. He wanted "nothing to do with a book against the pope"  said Infovaticana .
The presentation will now be at the University Francisco de Vitoria instead, a University of the Legionaries of Christ and of course without Archbishop Osoro, who had refused the invitation.
The unfriendly uninviting of the Cardinal Prefect and the repellent treatment by the Madrid Archbishop had been a prelude. In the Spring at the Plenary Assembly of the Spanish Bishops' Conference ​​Osoro and other bishops close to him  made the publication an issue. The group criticized that the  BAC had published this book, "without asking". Osoro justified his criticism by saying that the book highlighted a "conflict" between Cardinal Müller and Pope Francis that it did not exist in reality.
As recent events show,  Archbishop Osoro doesn't even believe his own  thesis. It only served  to exert pressure on the BAC, who did not back down and did not cancel the series of events at the book presentation.  Thereupon the ban the book from the archdiocesan university was imposed as the next step.

Has Archbishop Osoror falsified his resume?

Catholic University of San Damaso in Madrid
Meanwhile, there is provided in Spain with increasing insistence on the question of why Archbishop Osoro "has lied to the Vatican," said Infovaticana .
Archbishop Osoro, born in 1945, was formerlythe  Archbishop of Valencia. When Pope Francis made  Madrid Archbishop Cardinal Antonio Maria Varela Ruoco an emeritus for reasons of age, it was left to him  by the Congregation for Bishops, to propose as is usual, the selection of three candidates. Francis refused all and promoted instead, Osoro, from Valencia to Madrid. However, as the Archbishop of Valencia, he appointed Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera, whom he removed from the office of Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship.
Prior to his appointment to Madrid, Osoro had to send a resume to the Vatican, which was published in extracts  with the appointment. Therein, Osoro claimed to have achieved four licentiates: in philosophy, theology, science and education.
In Daily Bulletin of the Vatican press office, which announced the appointment in 2014, it states:
Mons. Carlos Osoro Sierra è nato a Castañeda, provincia e diocesi di Santander, il 16 maggio 1945. Dopo aver studiato Magistero presso la Escuela Normal ed aver esercitato la docenza per un anno a Santander, è entrato nel seminario per le vocazioni adult Colegio Mayor El Salvador di Salamanca, ove ha frequentato i corsi di Filosofia e Teologia presso la Pontificia Università di quella città, ottenendo la licenza nelle due discipline . Ha pure conseguito la licenza in Scienze Esatte dell'Università Complutense di Madrid e in Pedagogiadell'Università di Salamanca. (Emphasis added by the editors)
In Spain, voices claiming publicly that Osoro have not acquired in reality one of the four Licentiates. In the Congregation for Bishops  journalistic inquiry was excluded because of the secrecy of the proceedings of a bishop's appointment. Unofficially it was said, in the Congregation, the resume was not checked after Pope Francis rejected all of the tested and nominated candidates and had appointed  Osoro instead.
Spanish observers do not rule out that there is a connection between the affront to Cardinal Müller and the rumors about the fake CV.  "Osoro now needs a friend in Rome. A very high friend," said Francisco Fernandez de la Cigoña.
  Whatever may be the personal reasons for Archbishop Osoro: To deny access of a Cardinal Prefect of the CDF   to a Catholic university to present his book, presents an unprecedented break  in  manners. The justification that the book is allegedly  "against. the pope" is an affront that certainly has  a very sharp point. "The book must be important," said Fernandez de la Cigoña, "if there are censorship attempts."

Archbishop Condemns Abuse of Church for "Ideological and Political Promotion"

Archbishop Osoro Condemns Homo-Homage in
Madrid Church
(Madrid) Archbishop Carlos Osoro of Madrid expressed in a press release his "pain" over the abuse of the Madrid Antonius Church. The archbishop was responding to the attribute of June 9th for the deceased homosexual activist and avowed atheist Pedro Zerolo, which took place in the church and was organized by the Catholic Association Mensajeros de la PazThe association is led by Catholic priest Angel Garcia Rodriguez.
Archbishop Osoro recalled in his statement that "the church is open to all  for prayer and the celebration of the mysteries of the Lord, and not to ideological and political rallies, which have nothing to do with the mission of the Church, which Pope Francis calls us. This was the mission for which you entered the church, and I expect that the leaders of the church to act in the sense of this mission."
The Spanish church historian and well-known Catholic blogger Francisco Fernandez de la Cigoña paid tribute to the Archbishop of Madrid  with praise "for the quick response".  At the same time, he expressed doubts as to whether a press statement was sufficient to return Angel Garcia Rodriguez on the "right path". "His church is the Church of Angel Garcia, not the Catholic Church. As long as the bishop does not deprive the one responsible for the Antonius church, he will do, considering his anarchic self-possession and due to his poor formation, more of the same. Let us hope that the Archbishop has learned from the incident."
