Enzo Bianchi breaks the silence: “Holy See help us. I never contested the legitimate prior”

VATICAN CITY – Enzo Bianchi breaks the silence. And, as expected, he tries to mend with the monastic community of Bose founded by him, in the extreme attempt to overcome the internal divisions and thus make irrelevant the decree of the Vatican secretariat of state which provided – “temporarily”, he explains himself – his departure. Tonight’s words say that part of the story has yet to be written, not everything seems to be final.

Enzo Bianchi: “I had a dream called Bose”

Bianchi says he never contested the “legitimate authority” of the current prior Manicardi. And it appeals to the Holy See because “in vain, to those who delivered the decree to us we asked that we be allowed to know the evidence of our shortcomings and to be able to defend ourselves from false accusations”. And again: “In the deepest sadness, always obedient, in justice and in truth, to the will of Pope francesco, for whom I have love and final devotion “.

Schism, dialogue tests at the monastery of Bose

In a note Bianchi recalls that “the apostolic visit conducted by three visitors has had its results and conclusions in recent days”. “I, Fra Enzo Bianchi, the founder, Sister Antonella Casiraghi, former sister general responsible, fra Lino Breda, secretary of the community, and fra Goffredo Boselli, responsible for the liturgy – he says -, we have been invited to temporarily leave the community and go live elsewhere “.

Monastero di Bose, the Pope’s tear. The former prior Bianchi away from the community

“In these last two years, during which I have deliberately been more absent than present in the community, especially living in my hermitage, I have suffered from not being able to give my legitimate contribution as a founder anymore. As a founder, over three years ago I gave freely the resignation as prior, but I understand that my presence may have been a problem. However, I never contested with words and deeds the authority of the legitimate prior, Luciano Manicardi, a close collaborator of mine for more than twenty years, as master of novices and vice-prior of the community, who shared decisions and responsibilities with me in full communion “.

The monastery of Bose, in the province of Biella

This is why Bianchi invokes the help of the Holy See: “In this situation, for me as for everyone, very painful, I ask that the Holy See help us and, if we have done something that contrasts communion, we are told. On our part , in repentance we are willing to ask and give mercy. In suffering and trial we have also asked and we ask that the community be helped on a path of reconciliation. I thank from the bottom of my heart the many brothers and sisters of Bose who in these hours of great pain support me and the many people who have confirmed me their human closeness and their sincere affection “.
