Sensational exposГ© Dad based on the illiteracy of journalists, the Catholics say

The Associated Press has published the documents of the first half of the 80s, correspondence concerning the Curia of the Oakland diocese, the Congregation for the doctrine of faith concerning the case of an American priest Stephen Kizla accused of sexual harassment to children. One of them bears the signature of cardinal Ratzinger - the current Pope Benedict XVI.The records in the Vatican is Latin. Dean of the faculty of classical Philology of southern California Thomas Habinek completed a translation of the document. In the interpretation of Habinek happened that cardinal Ratzinger in response to a request from the diocese to "unfrocked" criminal priest declares that for the good of the Universal Church, this is impractical, a thorough review of the case requires considerable time, and yet should accompany father Kizla fatherly concern, explaining to him the reasons for the decision of the Congregation."The future Pope suspended pedophile process" - such was the news that caused a worldwide sensation.However, the Catholics say, the whole scandal arose just because of an incorrect translation, notes portal Regions with reference to the website "Ratzinger-inform".In fact, the Bishop asked the Congregation for the doctrine of faith, not asking to punish the father Kizla "deprivation Sana", and requests a dispensation (exemption) "from all priestly duties, which, as follows from the document, asks the father of CISL, because in the document it is called the "petitioner." The fact is that until recently, even a complete deprivation of the clerical status did not release the priest from the obligation to observe celibacy, and about a dispensation from the duties of the priest had to personally request the Bishop, and the Bishop appealed this case to Rome. The translator didn't understand the word dispensatio and referred it as "the deprivation of the rank".The response of the Congregation, signed by Ratzinger, not much different from the answers in dozens and hundreds of such cases, namely, no matter how wanted the priest to drop everything right now and get married or do anything else to improve their lives, yet, in addition to his own wishes must be considered and the benefit of the Church, to which he has bound himself by certain obligations, so such an extreme measure as a deprivation of the clerical status applies only after detailed consideration of all the circumstances, and exemption from the obligation of celibacy is available after a set period (at the time it was provided usually no earlier than the applicant will be 40 years old, and O. Cislo at the time the petition was 38).The reasons for which the petition was based were considered to be very serious (gravis momenti), however, the Congregation found it impossible not to take into account the negative impact that the granting of such dispensations may lead the community of believers, especially taking into consideration the youth of the applicant (attenta iuvenili praesertim oratoris aetate).Thus, where journalists saw the fear of publicity and scandal, actually there is a concern that not be left without supervision and care of potentially dangerous for the community and himself as a cleric.The cause of the failure of the Congregation in the petition recommends to clarify Cislo Ratzinger (apte patefaciendo rationem agendi huius Dicasterii), do not forget to accompany his fatherly concern, because the priest (and any Christian) should remain for the Bishop's son, in whatever sin he had sunk.The response of the Congregation didn't really connect the leadership of the diocese, which could without difficulty, though not depriving clerical status, to prevent the unworthy priest in Ministry and to deprive him of all priestly duties, and that was done even before all of this correspondence.
