Piano di Sorrento, Saturday 25 June the meeting in the Basilica of San Michele Arcangelo to discuss the “Ius Patronatus”
Piano di Sorrento. In recent weeks she has returned to speak strongly of the Right of Patronate, or the right of the faithful of some parishes to elect their own parish priest. A right that has been denied for too long and that is now right and right to claim. Domenico Cinque for 16 years he has made the “struggle” to defend this right his own but his has always been a voice in the desert until the unexpected news of the transfer of Don Pasquale Irolla who in September will leave the Parish of San Michele Arcangelo to reach the island of Capri.
To support Domenico Cinque in his fight, the Archconfraternity Death and Prayer of Piano di Sorrento which he organized for Saturday 25 Juneat ore 19.00and meeting in the Basilica of San Michele Arcangelo to talk about the history of the Right of Patronage and to share with everyone what has been collected in recent years in the archives of the Sodality.
The meeting was moderated by Brother Dr. Fabrizio d’Espositojournalist of the Fatto Quotidiano, administrator of the Archconfraternity.
An appointment not to be missed in order to understand the value of the law of the “Giuspatronato” and, all together, forcefully ask for its respect so that the votes for the election of the parish priest are called as soon as possible.
Domenico Cinque also wrote one open letter to Mons. Francesco Alfano, bishop of the Archdiocese of Sorrento-Castellammare di Stabia. His letter was published on social media and was very successful. Domenico Cinque, among other things, specifies: «The patronage it is not a privilege but a right that those people have conquered. Every church, every chapel of our beautiful peninsula is soaked in the sweat and tears of those who over the centuries have donated part of their work, of their life, to the community.
Excellence I ask you to recognize a sacrosanct right because it was conquered with the sacrifices of generations of carottesi, metesi, santanellesi and sorrentini. I ask you to call free elections as soon as possible in all parishes that enjoy the right of “jus patronatus”, all for too long without a parish priest. You freely choose the triad to be submitted to the vote, it is an undisputed prerogative of him. Choose, but then let us vote, let a people exercise its rightbehave as a serious and enlightened sovereign and not as a despot locked up in his ivory tower and in his silence.
It would be a duty on your part to fulfill a specific obligation that has been eluded for too long in the mistaken belief that the people would then forget, remove and adapt to the “status quo”.
As a faithful excellency, I can only obey his indications on the subject of the doctrine of the Faith, as a man I take the liberty of not sharing your choices on the subject of patronage, considering them to be detrimental to the rights and history of an entire community».
