Adelante la Fe. The information has been appropriately and thoroughly checked from multiple sources on the ground.

On May 2th, 2018, Pope Francis announced that in the consistory to be celebrated on June 29 this year, Feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, he will raise to the cardinalship Bp. Toribio Ticona, titular bishop of Timici and prelate emeritus of Corocoro, Bolivia. The 81-year-old bishop was born on April 25, 1937. He was ordered priest in 1967 and consecrated as Timici's bishop and axiliary bishop of Potosí, Bolivia, on May 31st, 1986. In 1992 he was appointed prelate of Corocoro, retiring in 2012.

During his frequent visits to Oruro at the beginning of his office, the then bishop of Oruro and future Third World ideologist cardinal, Julio Terrazas Sandoval, CSsR, boasted visiting Oruro's bishop and called him his "padrino" or sponsor, since he said he had been promoted to the bishopric thanks to Terrazas,who on several occasions as president of the Bolivian Conference of Bishops, and obviously was very influential on the other bishops and the apostoloic Nunciature.

Ticona participated in two Ad Limina visits, in 2008 and 2017. He served as alcalde, according to the local traditional customs of a 12-person community in Bolivia. During his 10-year tenure in the Corocoro prelaturre, the Catholic flock went down from 94.6% to 87.6%, while the Protestant sects's following grew. It is a well-known fact that while he was servirng his office in Corocoro, he was living more uxorio with a lady in Oruro's chancery. She and her children are proud to be called wife and children of the Patacamaya bishop, as Bishop Toribio Ticona is also known.

The family of Bp. Toribio Ticona, Patacamaya bishop, lived in up to three different places of residence in Oruro.

Since the 9th and 10th centuries, known as the Iron Century of Papacy, there has been no sure, reliable news of a concubinarian bishop being rewarded with the title of cardinal. Being a Prince of the Church entails an important responsibility for the office holder, since he serves directly the petrine ministry. Therefore, a concubinarian cardinal's promotion sends two messages: 1, the Pope's wish to eliminate priestly celibacy, and 2, that he has a scapegoat foro working against Bolivia's bishops hierarchy. 2 bishoprics and 3 other church circumscriptions are to be renewed this year. We can be sure that Bishop Barros' case will be repeated in Bolivia, thanks to which Pope Francis would have, with Evo Morales' backing, control over Bolivia's Church, which would then have a marked leftist tone.

Well, all I can say, jovan, is at least this Bishop Ticona is past the age of 80 and thus is ineligible to vote in the College of Cardinals, when it comes time to elect a new Pope. And, secondly, we can still hope that Pope Francis will keep to his stated intention to retire from the Papacy, thus limiting any future confusion he may sow in the Church.

(I know in the past you have said I am naïve in thinking Francis would actually retire, given that you think Francis is enamored of his public fame-- and perhaps you are right on both counts --but, we can still hope, while also praying that the next Pope is not even more "liberal", for lack of a better term).

Well, at least the pope is getting back to some traditions :dodgy:

At this point, I don't even care what this guy does, literally everything is a scandal.  It seems like the Vatican is having a competition to see how scandalous they can become.  The Catholic papacy has been made an absolute joke at this point, not exclusively due to man, but he sure seems to have had a good time making our venerable Church the laughing stock of the world.
