Pope Francis and loneliness

Papa FrancescoIn the era of the great communicators, Pope Francis looms. & Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Vince today who simplifies, and above all stands out and makes it easier arises for those who (perhaps on the basis of very sophisticated and complex strategies) have simple thoughts: who shall notify the belly, & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; portfolios, frustration, anger; instincts, in short, people. & nbsp;

The simplicity of the pope Argentine hides complexity instead. & Nbsp;

Let's say the last episode.
 

The pope elementary words if not the spirit explained to the students of Jesuit schools why does not reside in the papal apartment. & Nbsp;
I need company, said; is a matter of "psychiatric".

Behind these lines reveals a novel attempt to resolve what is a major problem of the structure of the papal government. & Nbsp;

The Roman Pontiff is an absolute ruler, his word has more than "a hundred popes died," as I said to mean that his will was stronger than the tradition and standards, and & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; But it is also a man, linked to the world by a group of persons to which the quality of his government. & nbsp;

Rather, until the middle of the '500 the Roman pontiff lived surrounded by the Court. & Nbsp;

The very structure of his residences obliged him to it, mixing private spaces and public spaces.

In contemporary accounts written by curial prelates agents, etc., The head of the church, and we know a lot is known elements also very close. & Nbsp;

     
Everyone was easy to meet him.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; The reorganization of the Curia in the congregations of the second '500 constituted an extraordinary innovation.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; The locations of these "ministries" became largely the residences of their prefects or deans and became detached from the physical figure of the pope.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; These could gain intimacy and the choices made in particular by Paul V (pope from 1605) characterized a new way to make the Pope (in other courts monarchy, after all, & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; rulers withdrew from the scene and became "king hidden ").

In the Vatican the bourgeoisie overthrew the placement of the rooms to create an almost secret residence in the vicinity of the hall of maps, well known to visitors & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; the Vatican Museums.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; In this way, the Raphael Rooms, which had been the residence of several popes, became antechambers and earned the designation of rooms of the squires, and the cavalry of the & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; broken lances.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; In the new papal palace of the Quirinal, which was to become the permanent residence of the popes in the modern and up to Pius IX, Pope Paul V and his successors took up part of the building & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; and private rooms located in the oldest part of the complex, one under the Torrino where he is now studying representing the President of the Republic.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; The pope walked away from his court and he had to surround himself with a family (relatively) restricted to men of his extreme confidence led by Cardinal nephew.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; In an electoral system such as that papal, where, as we said, the curial more ambitious, newly elected Pope, already they began to speculate on who might have been his successor & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; in which thanks agreed to enter time, career officials did not inspire much trust.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Only blood relatives, that at least the feeling, ensured the loyalty, sincerity he needed the pontiff: his success was linked to the survival of the race even after his & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; death.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; The separateness of the pope begat short, the golden age of nepotism, that system had many drawbacks, however, and that was finally (almost) passed, only the beginning of the XIX & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; century.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Then time began, with Cardinal Ercole Consalvi and Pope Pius VII, the Secretary of State, designated as the first actor in the curia and main filter between the pope and the world.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Better said - to simplify, indeed, in doing so without having the extraordinary ability to Francis-Bergoglio -, the Secretary of State and, gradually, the secretary of the & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Pope became essential elements of the new system.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; A model, this place into serious crisis by the events that accompanied the years of Benedict XVI.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; A pope extraordinarily productive intellectually, but that left ample space to his closest collaborators with effects risaputi and embarrassing.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; It is no coincidence that Bergoglio come back often on the theme of individualism and careerism among churchmen proposing with this debate always alive for centuries.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; As its antidote, in recent months?

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; The plunge in the community of the house S.Marta, not surrounded by a family very restricted, but exposed, indeed, restated as the popes oldest attendance also occasional & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; other.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; In the many social occasions offered by that kind of cohabitation - from meetings in the chapel of the house: think of the space you have earned his sermons in the daily mass; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; conversations at the table with stakeholders, it is assumed, diversified -, the pope not only guarantees the company of which he says he had need, but also draws on information, grounds & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; reflection, enabling him to get around that isolation - of course more or less marked depending on the personality of the sovereign - that the first '600 had become, in fact, with & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; advantages and disadvantages, a model of government.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Francis has a secretary, of which but few recall the name (the last two secretaries, remember, have become archbishops and always had been in the spotlight).

     

     

The Secretary of State Bertone no longer appears.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Hard to think that his successor, at least with this pope, will stand for leadership.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Francis does the bishop, and plays well above its function as pope.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; A pontiff "traditional" needs of ministers and, to quote the old, of favorites; a bishop rather need men including where to stay and indulge.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; And what Bergoglio seems able to do very well, so picking the first malicious comments from those who now is excluded, and does so according to the pensioner's S.Marta and not on the third floor & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; the Palace of Sixtus V.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; It's not just a question of sociality, as to overcome the phase of a degenerate "segretarismo" started in the last period of the papacy of John Paul II and continued with more damage with & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Pope Ratzinger.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; What will happen then tomorrow (will establish some form of collegial management, perhaps on the model of the Committee of the eight cardinals, or what?) We'll see.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; This (probably) hides the seemingly light output of the pope.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; If historians were able to acquire a minimum of Francis of his ability to explain things - which is still not the case, as seen from the preceding lines -, the story would not be & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; the most useless pastime of a few it is today and would recover, with beneficial effects, the function it once had.

& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; If then also the politicians ...
