Quote:Update, Jan 2, 11.40pm:

According to the Italian Catholic website Corrispondenza Romana, the former apostolic nuncio to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, has added his name to the Kazakh bishops’ profession of truth about sacramental marriage. So, too, has Italian emeritus Archbishop Luigi Negri of Ferrara-Comacchio.

Archbishop Vigano served as nuncio in Washington D.C. from 2011 until 2016. Benedict XVI appointed him to the position after two years as secretary of the Governorate of Vatican City State where he used his reputable administrative skills to uncover corrupt financial practices — something that caused other Vatican officials to elbow him out. Ordained a priest on March 24, 1968, he was appointed nuncio to Nigeria in 1992.
Archbishop Negri led the archdiocese of Ferrara-Comacchio from Dec. 2012 until June 2017. Ordained a priest on 28 June 1972,  he is known as a vigorous pastor, theologian and philosopher.

Both archbishops have taken part in Italy’s March for Life in Rome, and last October they participated in an international conference on “Humanae Vitae 50 Years Later: Its Meaning Yesterday and Today,” held at the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) and organized by the pro-life group, Voice of the Family. 


Update 5 Jan. 2018:

Cardinal Janis Pujats, Archbishop emeritus of Riga, Latvia, has joined the five bishops in signing the “Profession of Immutable Truths about Sacramental Marriage.” In November last year, the cardinal, 87, told an interviewer that “it is necessary to clarify" Amoris Laetitia, adding that the document is “too liberal” in its outlook. Pope St. John Paul elevated Archbishop Janis Pujats to cardinal in pectore (in secret to avoid persecution) in 1998. His cardinalate was made public at the consistory in Feb. 2001. 


Update 6 Jan. 2018:

Emeritus Auxiliary Bishop Andreas Laun of Salzburg, Austria, has put his name to the Profession. Bishop Laun turned 75 on Oct. 13 last year and the Pope accepted his resignation the same day on grounds of age.

Bishop Laun is a member of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and had served as auxiliary bishop of Salzburg since 1995. A professor of moral theology at the Philosophical-Theological Faculty of Heiligenkreuz, Austria, in December 2016 he said he shared the concerns of the four ‘dubia’ cardinals over certain passages of Amoris Laetitia. “I have read the concerns of the four cardinals, and I agree with them,” he said. “Additionally, I know personally especially Cardinals Meisner and Caffarra and know how competent they are. With them, I am in the best company.”
