Cardinal says African Church

Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo of the Democratic Republic of Congo says that in many African societies, the Catholic Church historically has served as a substitute for the state, especially when those states have failed, explaining why Catholic prelates on the continent play such a directly political role in African affairs.

africa logoROME - Over the years, and in a variety of places, African Catholicism has had a rich history of Catholic prelates who became major social and political forces in their countries.

Classmates and others recall the Lebanon man who rose to the upper echelon of the Catholic Church.

March 24, 2017

Cardinal William H. Keeler never forgot his roots in Lebanon and visited his hometown often, said one of his Lebanon County friends.

Local Catholics are mourning Keeler's death Thursday in Baltimore at the age of 86.

After serving as bishop of Harrisburg from 1983 to 1989, Keeler became archbishop of Baltimore, where he served until retiring in 2007.

Keeler and Dr. Joseph Bering of North Cornwall Township hit it off as teenagers when they met as freshmen at Lebanon Catholic School in the mid-'40s because they had similar interests in science, Bering said. A retired family physician, Bering called Keeler brilliant.

Although Keeler left for the seminary as a junior, he is still considered a member of his 1948 Lebanon Catholic graduating class and always returned for their reunions, Bering said.

"He was brilliant. He could have done anything he wanted to," Bering recalled.

People will have an opportunity to pay their last respects to the Cardinal, former Prague Archbishop and Czech Catholic Church Primate, Miloslav Vlk, who died aged 84 on March 18, in two churches in Prague on Thursday and Friday, Stanislav Zeman, told CTK on Wednesday.

23 March 2017

Prague, March 22 (CTK) - Stanislav Zeman, spokesman for the Prague Archbishopric, said on Thursday, Vlk's remains will be displayed in an open coffin at the St Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle from 17:00 until 20:00 CEST.

On Friday, the closed coffin will be displayed in the St Benedict's Church at Hradcany from 15:00 until 21:00.

The funeral in the St Vitus Cathedral on Saturday is to be unpretentious. Vlk's relatives and collaborators are preparing it in harmony with his attitude to similar ceremonies and life.

No large baroque Requiem accompanied by the smell of frank incense will be played during the funeral, but rather folk music, Zeman said.

Before the funeral, a liturgical procession will leave the seat of the Prague Archbishopric at Hradcany Square at 11:00. It will pass through the castle courtyards to the St Vitus' Cathedral. The coffin will not be carried, it will be ready and decorated in the cathedral.

After the funeral, Vlk's remains will be placed in the Archbishops' tomb in the cathedral.

Along with Cardinal and Prague Archbishop Dominik Duka, who will celebrate the requiem mass for Vlk, Olomouc Archbishop Jan Graubner and Plzen Bishop Emeritus Frantisek Radkovsky will attend the funeral.

Bishops of the Bohemian and Moravian dioceses as well as cardinals and bishops from abroad and from the Focolare movement will concelebrate the mass, Zeman told CTK on Wednesday.

The Prague Archbishopric said German Emeritus Archbishop of Cologne Joachim Meisner and Emeritus Archbishop of Cracow Stanislaw Dziwisz, former personal secretary of the late Pope John Paul II, will attend the funeral.

Bangkok Archbishop Cardinal Francis Xavier Kriengsak Kovitvanit, a representative of the Focolare movement, to which Vlk claimed allegiance, is also expected to arrive.

In addition to clergymen and political and cultural representatives, many pilgrims will attend the funeral.

Special entries in the Prague Castle complex will be opened for them. The cathedral will be open from 9:45 CEST. The funeral will be broadcast live by public Czech Television (CT).

President Milos Zeman will not take part in the funeral, he will send a wreath instead. Cardinal Vlk criticised Zeman several times in the past.

Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze is now something of a lion in winter, a robust 84 years old. You

Among other things, Arinze is still a powerful voice for African Catholicism. When ten African bishops issued a collection of essays in advance of the October 2015 Synod of Bishops on the family, they asked Arinze to contribute the preface, knowing that putting his name on the book gave it an instant injection of credibility and news appeal.
