Pontifical Catholic University Of Peru Stripped By Vatican Of Right To Call Itself Catholic

Has the Pope as Head of the Catholic Church turned his back on the Faithful and closed his eyes to the changes in this world and his ears to those who pray?

I must be getting old … I am not only fed up with my Republican Party that I have been a loyal member of since I was 18 …. but my whole life as a Catholic and now I find the Church to be ignorant of the people it supposedly leads. I personally met john Paul II … and I firmly believe he is rolling in his grave at the shenanigans and idiotic and sometimes STUPID edicts  that are coming out of the Vatican  since he has gone. The following story is just another example of how the Church is alienating the truly faithful. 

VATICAN CITY, July 21 (Reuters) – The Vatican has stripped the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, one of the most prominent centres of learning in Latin America, of its right to continue calling itself a Catholic or pontifical university, saying it had damaged the interests of the Church.

The university in the Peruvian capital, Lima, was founded in 1917 and has been identified with liberal, progressive thinking for decades.

Gustavo Gutierrez, the priest considered the founder of the Liberation Theologymovement, taught there for years. Peruvian President Ollanta Humala and former President Alan Garcia are both graduates.

The Vatican said on Saturday that the break came after the university had several times unilaterally modified its statutes and had “gravely prejudiced the interests of the Church”. It did not elaborate.

The rector of the university, Marcial Rubio, has been at odds with the archbishop of Lima, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne, over control of the institution.

In 1986, the university gave an honorary doctorate to then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict. (Reporting By Philip Pullella; Editing by Alessandra Rizzo)
