Archbishop Crepaldi: “The EU is Dead! Cause of Death:Coronavirus”

Archbishop Crepaldi, Bishop of Trieste and an outstanding representative of Catholic social teaching, notes the death of the EU in his latest statement - cause of death: coronavirus.

 Archbishop Giampaolo Crepaldi, the Bishop of Trieste and emeritus chair of the International Observatory Cardinal Van Thuan for the Social Doctrine of the Church, is one of the most outstanding representatives of Catholic social teaching.  He has now published a document on the coronavirus crisis, in which he states "the death of the European Union by Coronavirus".  The Archbishop of Trieste wrote, among other things:

 “The experience of the past few days has shown that the European Union is not only divided, but a phantom.  There have been selfish disputes among member states rather than cooperation.  Italy is isolated and left alone.  The European Commission intervened late and the European Central Bank intervened poorly.  Given the epidemic, every state has shut itself down.  The resources that Italy needs to deal with the emergency, which would have been associated with currency devaluation at other times, for example, now depend on the Union's decisions, which we have to bow to.

“The Corona virus has definitely exposed the artificiality of the European Union.  It is unable to achieve cooperation between the states to which it has imposed itself through the transfer of sovereignty.  The lack of moral cement was not compensated for by the institutional and political cement.  This inglorious end of the European Union by the corona virus is to be noted.  It is also important to think that cooperation between European countries in the fight for health is also possible outside of supranational political institutions.”

The Suicide of Humanity --- Archbishop Crepaldi on the Attacks Against Marriage and Family

Archbishop Crepaldi: attack on marriage and the family a kind of suicide of humanity
(Trieste) The attacks on marriage and the family are a kind of "suicide of humanity" warned Archbishop Giampaolo Crepaldi of Trieste. Archbishop Crepaldi is one of the competitive profile Catholic pastors, which is why he stands out among his brethren.
Last Sunday he preached at the Marian shrine Monte Grisa at Trieste. The archbishop celebrated Holy Mass, prayed at  the conclusion of the Marian Month of May  with the faithful the rosary and concluded the Peregrinatio Mariae. The Peregrinatio is the pilgrimage of the miraculous image of the Virgin Mary which is venerated in the church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Trieste, and in all deaneries of the Archdiocese.
In his sermon Archbishop Crepaldi spoke about the defense of the family, which is "an inviolable borderline for the future of humanity. The attacks on marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman were described by the archbishop as a "suicide of humanity".  What the Archbishop said:
"Dear brothers and sisters, in this devotional celebration to conclude the Peregrinatio Mariae let us pray to the Mother of God for the family. Today the defense of the family and the marriage covenant is more than ever an inviolable borderline for the future of humanity because the attacks on marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman are a kind of suicide of humanity, especially in our western countries. From a Christian perspective, it is wrong to assert that the fundamental relationship between man and woman is merely a cultural or social product, a 'gift' from any government or a human construct. Children are not the product of the society or the state. Governments can not displace the primary responsibility of parents for their children, nor deny child the right to grow up with his mother and the father. In Christ, the natural state of marriage, is the natural union between a man and a woman in the marriage  sacrament, a sign and instrument of His grace and his own relationship with the Church. This grace is an action of mercy, it is the seal of the conjugal covenant. It is something that you can believe with secure confidence, a gift that must be preserved. The indissolubility of marriage is a grace, not a problem for which you have to look for exceptions. "
Archbishop Crepaldi warned that the attacks on marriage and family life will lead to the suicide of humanity. Just last week, Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin had described  the approval by the electorate of Ireland for the legalization of "gay marriage"  as a "defeat for humanity".
