June 2

Saints Marcellinus (Priest)
and Peter (Exorcist) (d. Rome 305)
Martyrs




OR for 6/1/-6/2:

At Pentecost, the Pope denounces the moral pollution that is poisoning the world:
'The Spirit of God urges the Church beyond men's sins'


This issue carries the Pope's texts from the weekend- the homily at Pentecost Mass and the subsequent Reina caeli, as well
as his remarks to conclude the Marian month at the Vatican; and a story on his meeting with the President of Ukraine.
Page 1 international news: North Korea set to test an ICBM that can reach Alaska; and Hamas-Al Fatah rivalry explodes
anew on the West Bank.



No events scheduled for the Holy Father today (Tuesday).


CURIAL CHANGE

The Vatican announced the Holy Father has accepted the resignation of US Cardinal James Francis Stafford
as Major Penitentiary, having reached canonical retirement age. He will be succeeded by Archbishop
Fortunato Baldelli, who was Apostolic Nuncio in France. [One of the nominations pre-announced by Andrea Tornielli
two days ago
.]


Father Z has this concise but very informative description of the Apostolic Penitentiary:


The Apostolic Penitentiary is one of the the Roman Church’s three great tribunals, and it has the highest dignity. It deals with matters of conscience, internal forum or confession issues, some particular censures and the concession of indulgences.

It is so important that even with the death of a Pope, the Major Penitentiary of the Church, usually a Cardinal, does not lose his office as do most of the members of the Curia.
