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."

European Museum Association "L'Internationale" Holds Anti-Clerical Exhibition -- Currently in Madrid

(Madrid) A network of European museums of contemporary art is a misanthropic, blasphemous and anti-clerical exhibition. The exhibition can currently be seen under the name  "Un saber real instruments útil"  the Queen Sofia Museum in Madrid. The exhibition promotes abortion, insults Christianity and is hostile to the Catholic Church. "It would be reprehensible if a religious denomination would get money from the government to insult feminists", said Infovaticana. Equally reprehensible is the inverse conclusion that feminists get money from the Spanish government and the European Union (EU) to insult the Catholic Church.
The "valuable" pieces, currently shown in the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia  include matchboxes illustrated with a call for violence: "The only church that illuminates is  burning. Support help! "
The Queen Sofia Museum, named after the former Spanish Queen Sofia, the wife of  King Juan Carlos I, who abdicated on June 19th, is holding an exhibition, which is funded by taxpayers' money, blasphemes the God, insults the Catholic Church, degrades human dignity, calls for anti-Christian violence and the murder of unborn children. Miguel Vidal started a petition on HazteOir, which prompts the museum director , Manuel Borja-Villel to close the exhibition.
The Museum of Modern Art was founded in 1990. The headquarters is located in San Carlos Hospital in Madrid, which had been founded in the 16th century by King Philip II.

EU-Sponsored Church Hostility "in the Name of Art"

Was compiled by the exhibition  Croatian Curator Collective WHW What, How & Whom that holds exhibitions in the German-speaking world, especially in Austria. The Madrid exhibition was funded by the EU Culture Programme. The alleged "educational" approach of the exhibition recalls not coincidentally of the National Socialist "education programs". Nor that the Collective WHW put together an exhibition for a new European museum network called L'International (The International).
The  International Museums-  with its naming inspired by communistic nostalgia include the following six museums of modern art at: Moderna Galerija (MG + MSUM, Ljubljana, Slovenia); Museo nacional centro de arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS, Madrid, Spain); Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA, Catalonia, Spain); Museum of Modern Art, Antwerp (M HKA, Antwerp, Belgium); SALT (Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey) and Van Abbemuseum (VAM, Eindhoven, The Netherlands).
The exhibition is expected to be seen in all these museums soon. The Exhibition in Madrid is imbued with hostility toward Christians. An exhibition piece which criticized Islam,  would not only have been unsuitable for left and left-liberal Western states, but also for the Islamic Turkey.

Sacrilegious "Our Father" of Argentine Feminists

The exhibits feature a total of 30 artists and artist collectives. Among these there is also the Argentine feminist collective Mujeres publicas (Public Women). The "art" of Public Women is meant to attack the Catholic Church and to offend Christians and Christianity.
The Spanish left would not put up with having to pay taxes and can then offend people in an exhibition with their own money.The exhibition Un saber real instruments útil (Really useful knowledge) promotes the feminist "Our Father" the Mujeres publicas, which states:
"El derecho a Concédenos decidir sobre nuestro cuerpo. Y danos la gracia de no ser ni ni madres Virgenes. Líbranos de la autoridad del Padre, del Hijo y del Espíritu Santo para que las que Seamos nosotras decidamos por nosotras. Ruega porque el poder judicial suyos no haga los mandatos de la Iglesia y ambos nos Libren de su misógina opresión. Venga a nosotros el derecho a cuestionar si it bendito el fruto de nuestro vientre. No nos dejes caer en la tentación de nuestros derechos no luchar por. Y el milagro de la concédenos legalidad del aborto en Argentina. Amén "
"Give us the right to decide about our bodies. And grant us the grace to neither be virgins nor mothers. Free us from the authority of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, so we are the ones who decide for us. Pray that justice does not follow the order of the Church and be free from  misogynist oppression. We come to the right to deny that the fruit of our body is blessed. Lead us not into temptation, not to fight for our rights. And grant us the miracle of legalization of abortion in Argentina. Amen ".
From "Mujeres publicas comes the feminist battle cry:
"The Pope is Argentinian and abortion is prohibited. If the Pope were a woman, abortion would be law. "
The petition against the blasphemous and anti-clerical exhibition with a request that the exhibition is addressed to the museum director and at the same time to the Spanish Government.

Pope Accepts Resignation of Cardinal Rouco Varela -- Who Will Be the New Archbishop of Madrid?

Cardinals Rouco Varela and Canizares:
Vacant Chair of Archbishop of Madrid
(Madrid) The Apostolic Nuncio to Spain, Archbishop Renzo Fratini has informed the Archbishop of Madrid, Cardinal Antonio María Rouco Varela, that Pope Francis has accepted his resignation offer.
Thus, the most important episcopal throne of Spain is vacant and waiting for a replacement. Cardinal Cañizares Llovera  Antonio, the prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has been called for several times in the previous year.  He is the only head of a Roman Congregation, who has not yet been confirmed or replaced by Pope Francis in his office. A non-confirmation, which increasingly appears, of course,  in the context of a "deportation" back to Spain to a senior bishop's throne.
Cardinal Cañizares was appointed in 2008 by Pope Benedict XVI.. For six years, he was in charge of Sacred Liturgy in the Congregation for Divine Worship. Previously, he was the Cardinal Archbishop of Toledo and vice chairman of the Spanish Bishops' Conference.
Cardinal Rouco Varela was appointed by Pope John Paul II as Archbishop of Madrid in 1994. From 1999-2005 and since 2008 he has been the chairman of the Spanish Bishops' Conference. In 2011 he hosted the World Youth Day in Madrid, in which two million young people joined Pope Benedict XVI. in  Eucharistic Adoration. In 2014 the Archbishop of Madrid was attacked by the unsavory political mercenary group FEMEN, which then wanted to demonstrate for the "right" to kill unborn children.

Bomb Attack Against Madrid Cathedral Thwarted

Edit: it's refreshing to see enemies now attempting to do in the open what they do from within, behind a Bishop's office or a comfortable University chair.  In Spain a newly minted Anarchist organization, Commando Mateo Morral has claimed responsibility for a failed bomb attack on the Cathedral of La Almudena in Madrid.

Among their targets, the Church, they also wish to attack the Bourbon Monarchy as well.

All their majestic appearance is just the fruit of oppression and will be us the oppressed ones who will finish it through insurrectional revolutionary violence. We won't fall in the trap of awaiting for the historical conditions to come. We believe that the conditions for the attack are propitious as long as State, Capital and even more the rotten fascist Royal Family exist. We are determined. We do not wait. We take action. 
We do not have the wrong idea that with just this kind of actions we will achieve the destruction of all that oppresses us. We do not deceive ourselves. We do not fall into self-complacency. This is propaganda through action, which has existed for more than a century among the seditious and conspirators against Power. It is an appeal to war without limits using all our imagination and energy to end with this rotten reality.

The bomb was hidden in a trash bag, and was found by the local priest in a confessional, who then evacuated the church and called the police.  The bomb was made of 200 grams of gunpowder in a can of nails with an alarm clock, which they successfully deactivated.

Another interesting detail from a Spanish language blog writing in English is the following note:

Note: Mateo or Mateu Morral was a famous Catalan Anarchist who attempted to kill King Alfonso XII in 1906 with a bomb hidden in a bunch of flowers that he threw against the royal parade in Madrid, killing several but not the monarchs. A historical video can be watched here[es].
