I'm afraid they will withdraw in prayer, at least in some cases, can be a powerful temptation. Today perhaps there is a need for prayer of course, but also of testimony.

Written in unsuspecting times, when the new church of the council was taking its first steps and the total decay in which we live was far away.

Report by NBQ: “The choice will also have been free, but this does not mean that this freedom was not exercised in the face of very difficult circumstances. Which? Anyone who could hear it before the official announcement tells of a very suffering Hercules in the soul, a "difficult and painful" decision, he said. What's happened, so?

And to avoid confrontations that would have created even more tension in the Church, Monsignor D’Ercole "freely" chose to obey and step aside.”
