Petition that Pope Francis Follow an Important Tradition
#1
When a pope dies (or resigns) all the curial offices become vacant. Traditionally, a new pontiff has immediately reappointed his predecessors' curia.

However, Pope Francis has not done this yet. Reports are that he may be bringing in new people. 

This is a GROSS violation of tradition. This tradition exists to show the continuity between pontiffs.

Please sign below that Pope Francis not violate this important tradition and immediately re-appoint Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and Cardinal Bertone as Secretray of State.

I heard he had already...but why would we want Muller or Bertone?

Uh-oh...were you joking?  :blush:

"Certainly, you must be informed about modern errors because preaching the truth involves preaching about distancing oneself from error; but do not make the negative, secondary aspect into the most important! Your first aim is not to fight against error but to know the truth. Your central concern should be study, your sanctification, silence, meditation, and the exercise of charity." - Archbishop Lefebvre

"Holy Father Francis has expressed the desire that the heads and members of the dicasteries of the Roman Curia, as well as their Secretaries, and also the President of the Pontifical Commission for Vatican City State, continue donec aliter provideatur, that is, provisionally, in their respective positions." The awaited confirmation for the heads of the dicasteries of the Roman Curia, "suspended" since Francis' election, came yesterday in the early afternoon. Everyone is staying put for the moment, the Vatican statement said. "The Holy Father wishes to leave some time for reflection, prayer, and dialogue before any final appointment or confirmation is made."

Not exactly a vote of confidence. I think we still push for the traditional final appointment be made soon.
