Benedict XVI: The Case of Bishop Williamson Was the Fault of Ecclesia Dei
Benedict XVI and the Case Williamson: "The fault was alone the Ecclesia Dei Commission"
The New Interview Book of Benedict XVI: The case of Williamson
was "alone the fault of the Ecclesia Dei Commission
(Rome) Over the recent week book by Peter Seewald with Benedict XVI.,
which went on sale on September 8, already reported, by many of the
leading newspapers. One issue that stands out here is the Williamson
case and the Holocaust.
Vatican Radio - German section, the Argentine newspaper La Nacion,
whose Vatican correspondent is very close to Pope Francis, and others
highlighted, an excerpt of the book, which deals with the case of Bishop
Richard Williamson. The Briton Williamson was consecrated a bishop in
1988 by Archbishop Lefebvre without permission of Pope John Paul II. for
the Society of St. Pius X.
Pope Benedict XVI. in early 2009, declared the excommunication of the
four consecrated Bishops void, but statements of Bishop Williamson even
threatened to be a stumbling block for the Pope, who was severely
attacked for his gesture. Williamson had made statements on the
Holocaust and questioned the figure of six million Jews murdered by the
Nazis and also the use of gas chambers.
The opinion-leading media generated a storm of indignation, the less
directed against Williamson, but was utilized as an additional
opportunity by them to attack the little beloved, Benedict XVI. and his
understanding of the Church. Benedict XVI. speaks in new interview book
of a "huge propaganda war" against the Church.
The Vatican defended the pope at that time by saying that he was unaware
of the relevant statements by Williamson who gave an interview for
Swedish Television STV. The STV interview had indeed been recorded a few
months previously, but was only broadcast in connection with the
lifting of the excommunications. Above all, have his decision was
unrelated to historical views, but related strictly to spiritual and
Benedict XVI. said the same to Peter Seewald.
In the interview book Benedict XVI. speaks of the "stupid Williamson
case". Seewald on the events of 2009 that the predecessor of Pope
Francis defended against criticism that he had lifted the
excommunication of the "Holocaust denier" Williamson, who lived at that
time in Argentina. Ratzinger now has said that he is not to blame for
the Williamson case.
The blame was alone that of the Pontifical Commission erected for
communities in the traditional rite in 1988 in the wake of the illicit
episcopal ordinations by Pope John Paul II, Ecclesia Dei. They did not
inform him about the positions represented by Williamson on the
Holocaust. "I see the blame only on this Commission."
Ecclesia Dei was headed at that time by Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos,
who Benedict replaced a few months later with Cardinal William Levada.
Officially, Castrillon Hoyos had reached his 80th birthday, and was
expecting the change.
In 2012 Williamson was excluded from the SSPX because of "continuing
disobedience," after he had spoken out against reconciliation with the
Holy See and the canonical recognition of the Fraternity by Rome.
