Pressure Group try to influence outcome of Synod, says "Il Foglio" newspaper

.- The Italian newspaper "Il Foglio," mainly dedicated to news commentary and considered one of the most informed in the country, noted this Tuesday that some pressure group is seeking to influence on the outcome of the Synod on the Eucharist that began Sunday at the Vatican.

Il Foglio noted that the pope chose personally, persons known for their traditional stance, like the German Joachim Meisner, the Australian George Pell, and the Canadian Marc Ouellet.."

According to the Roman newspaper, "the Bishop Donald Trautman, who presides the Committee on Liturgy for the North-American Episcopate, attacked vigorously the "Instrumentun laboris", considered unworthy and criticizing the conservative position."

Il Foglio says that the British weekly, "The Tablet," attacked "the decision of the pope to invite Cardinal Jorge Arturo Medina Estevez, the ex-Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Cult, seen as the smoke in the eyes of the Anglo-Saxon progressive Catholicism, and tried to discredit Fr. Nicola Bux, physical author of the "Instrumentum laboris."

According to the Italian newspaper, the critic launched by "The Tablet" has been relayed carefully by the Italian progressive agency Adista," and is based upon charges with no evidence, that Fr. Bux would have made forgeries in the past.

In spite of the attack, "Il Foglio" says, Bux has had the privilege to see his book "The Lord of Mysteries. Eucharist and Relativism," presented at the Vatican last Friday.

From some bishops, again according to the Italian daily, "it will be sought to center the attention on the abuse made in liturgical celebrations." But " there is no doubt that on the progressive side will seek to open a breach in the so-called pastoral of the divorce that remarry, in order to allow them to receive communion."

"Some pressure seems to be coming from France. It is no coincidence that the question was mentioned by the bishops from France that are participating in the Synod. The Benedictine Robert Le Gall from Mende and Roland Minnerath from Dijon," Il Foglio added.

It will be interesting to follow the development of the debate on the theme, especially in the evenings, when for the first time in the history of synods, time is taken for a "strike and answer" among the synodal fathers," concluded the Italian daily.
