Vatican cardinal cancels election of new leader for Communion and Liberation movement
June 20, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Kevin Farrell, the prefect of the dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life, has cancelled the election of a new leader for the Communion and Liberation movement, instead naming the current acting leader, Davide Prosperi, to a 5-year term.
Cardinal Farrell urged Prosperi to quell the “broad dissent” that the cardinal saw among the influential members of the lay movement. He indicated that the members’ resistance to Vatican-mandated changes was his reason for cancelling the election.
