Dear Abp. Marchetto,

With these lines I wish to be close to you and join myself to the act of presentation of the book “Primato pontificio ed episcopato. Dal primo millennio al Concilio ecumenico Vaticano II” [Pontifical primacy and epicopate: from the first millennium to the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council] I beg you to consider myself spiritually present [there]. 

The topic of the book is an homage to the love that you have for the Church, a loyal and at the same time poetic love. Loyalty and poetry are not an object of trade: they cannot be bought or sold, they simply are virtues that are rooted in a heart of a son who feels the Church to be a Mother; or, in order to be more precise, and saying it with an Ignatian familiar "tone", as "the Holy Mother Hierarchical Church". 

You have made this love manifest in many ways, including correcting a mistake or imprecision on my part - and for that I thank you from my heart -, but above all it is manifest in all your purity in the studies made on the Second Vatican Council.

I once told you, dear Abp. Marchetto, and I wish to repeat it today, that I consider you to be the best interpreter of the Second Vatican Council. 

I know that this is a gift from God, but I also know that you made it bear fruit.

I am grateful to you for all the good that you do for us with your testimony of love for the Church, and I ask the Lord that you be abundantly blessed. 

I beg you please not to forget to pray for me. May Jesus bless you, and may the Virgin protect you. 

Vatican, October 7, 2013 

Fraternally, 

Francis

Is it good or bad?

Francis conceives Vatican II as a sort of "Copernican revolution" in the Church, a break with the past. As he said in the La Civiltà Cattolica interview, what "was typical of Vatican II—is absolutely irreversible."
The Bologna school is the progressive, hermeneutic of rupture school of thought that says that Vat II breaks with tradition.  Benedict XVI etc are of the hermeneutic of continuity school of thought.

In the letter, Francis praises Marchetto, and Marchetto is a critic of the Bologna school, and supports the hermeneutic of continuity, so this is good.
McCall1981 seems to be right, or at least Wikipedia agrees with him or her.

Really? I thought it was just the opposite. The Bologna school is the "hermeneutic of continuity" school, no?
From the publisher of Abp. Marchetto's book:
Quote:This important study by Archbishop Agostino Marchetto makes a significant contribution to the debate that surrounds the interpretation of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council. Archbishop Marchetto critiques the Bologna School, which, he suggests, presents the Council as a kind of “Copernican revolution,” a transformation to “another Catholicism.” Instead Marchetto invites readers to reconsider the Council directly, through its official documents, commentaries, and histories. Marchetto’s volume will be a useful resource for graduate students, seminarians, and scholars interested in the theological significance of Vatican II.
So, according to Abp. Marchetto, the "Bologna school" is a rupture.

On the contrary the revolutionaries during Vatican II were Bologna school people.

Well, this post confirms what McCall1981 wrote. Big Grin

Yes, but that is just Abp. Marchetto's interpretation of it.
If he's a Modernist, what is really continuity with Tradition would indeed seem like a "Copernican revolution."
