For Salzburg's Archbishop, Christ was Not High Priest, But "A Layman"?

(Vienna) On the occasion of the re-division of the diocesan boundaries in Tirol 50 years ago, the ORF invited the bishops of the old county of Tyrol to "talk." 50 years before 1964, the Catholic Church drew  boundaries as a consequence of the    the end of World War to  divide  the former Austrian crown land at the Inn and Etsch valleys. Archbishop Lackner made Jesus a layman in the  question of the shortage of priests.
In 1964, the diocesan borders were adapted to the new international boundaries and administrative units. From the remaining portion of the Diocese of Brixen in Austria was the new diocese of Innsbruck. The old Diocese of Brixen was  extended from the so-called German share of the diocese of Trent and renamed the Diocese of Bozen-Brixen. The reduced diocese of Trent was elevated to an archdiocese. The Bishopric of Trent and the Diocese of Bolzano-Bressanone [Bozen-Brixen] have been subject since 1921 directly to the Pope. Trent has no suffragan dioceses and Bolzano-Bressanone belongs to  a Metropolitan Province. The new diocese of Innsbruck, however, is suffragan of Salzburg, as was the Diocese of Brixen since 798.

Bishop Discussion: 50 years of Diocesan Separation in Tirol

In the ORF regional studios in Tirol, the archbishops Franz Lackner (Salzburg) and Luigi Bressan (Trent) and Bishops Ivo Muser (Bolzano-Bressanone) and Manfred Scheuer (Innsbruck), met to look back at the past 50 years and attempt an outlook for the future.
"We are in a situation of massive radical change and transition and there arises the question: who puts his life, even his profession in the service of God and man? (...) We need pastors, priests, religious, religion teachers, pastoral assistance,"  said the Bishop Manfred Scheuer of Innsbruck, reigning since 2003  and pleaded for an "option for the youth."
"The gospel is and remains unrivaled  back then and now," said the Bishop of Brixen, Ivo Muser, reigning in his diocese since 2001. "Faith should not be imposed but must be made alive visible."
"Everyone is called to be  Church and participate in the pastoral care" said Bishop Muser to Orf again: "For all the importance of the priestly ministry, it is important that we do not just fix pastoral care on the priest alone. We are all called to be Church, to do our part. Each with their own skills, each with their own skills and potential."

Lackner: "We have Forgotten that Jesus was a Layman."


Archbishop Franz Lackner
A topic of conversation was the shortage of priests. The responses of the bishops remained superficial and concentrated to emphasize the role of the laity. With the devaluation of the priesthood and appreciation of the laity, the new Archbishop of Salzburg went the furthest.
The new archbishop of Salzburg, the Franciscan Franz Lackner, reigning since January 12, 2014,  said, "The Future of the Church" will include fewer priests, but that "the laity can take on important and responsible positions in the Church." These tasks should not belittle you, Lackner said. "We have forgotten that Jesus was a layman."
The statement of the Archbishop is on the website of the Archdiocese of Salzburg was taken and distributed without supplementing and amending. Even Martin Luther was clear that Jesus Christ is the true High Priest who knew him as it was known in the Old Testament for the Temple of Jerusalem.  More recent Protestant splits like the New Apostolic Church, emphasize the position of Christ as High Priest. However, the Catholic Archbishop of Salzburg and Primas Germaniae holds Jesus Christ for a layman?
An archbishop who  presents Jesus  as a layman? Son of God, who is under the priesthood? Jesus Christ is not just a high priest par excellence, who gave the Eucharist and the priesthood?  Is Jesus not as God incarnate, from whom all ordination offices pass through the setting up of Peter and his primacy? No succession, which ranges from Christ to Peter to every bishop since then, until the last priest? What would  this succession be  if Jesus Christ had been merely a "layman"?
Salzburg, like all old diocese, selects three candidates from its  chapter for new archbishop to be chosen by the Holy See.

Confused Ideas of a “Christian” Minister -- From the Heart of Jesus to Homo Adoption

(Vienna) On the question of what Agriculture Minister Andrae Rupprechter means by a "Catholic marriage”  the  current Austrian Federal Minister replied first since December 2013: "My wife and I are ecclesiastically married, have two children - that's all. This does not mean that I have an old-fashioned family understanding. Unfortunately ... the child care system is backward here in comparison to Belgium - even in Vienna. The offering needs to be massively expanded. In my view,  the family the most important political task. "Child care out of the family, is what   the Christian Democrat  calls for  and plays it on the keyboard of the left.

Headlines on Oath  to the Heart of Jesus

Neo-Minister Rupprechter had arranged for the inauguration of the Austrian Federal Government for headlines because he took the vow   not only before God, but also mentioned the Sacred Heart of Jesus mentioned ( "So help me God, and before the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ" - Oath of Office of Agriculture Minister Rupprechter ). In his native Tyrol the Sacred Heart devotion has a long tradition and is directly related to the resistance against  Josephinism and the anti-Napeoleonischen wars of liberation.
However, the reference to the Heart of Jesus seems to have been something of a flash in the pan for the Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management Minister. In an interview with the left-liberal daily Der Standard he expanded on the question whether Andreas Hofer was a role model for him:
"My role model in Tyrolean history is more of Michael Gaismair, who wrote as secretary of the Bishop of Brixen 500 years before, the first draft of the Tyrolean State Constitution. But I like the stoutness of  Andreas Hofer I suppose, of course."

Confusing World of Ideas Between Trotskyism Green Homo-Agenda and Christian Social Teaching

A statement that is in direct contradiction to his Sacred Heart devotion. Gaismaier, social revolutionary in the time of the Peasants' War, has since the 60s been a favorite of the neo-Marxist left, and was previously with the National Socialists.  Both employed him in conscious opposition against the Catholic Andreas Hofer. Rupprechter continues to rely  on the Christian social teaching. Again, the ideas of the Minister seem pretty confused. Because at the same time he speaks, he called for the adoption rights of children for homosexuals. He refers to the new Family Minister Sophie Karmazin and her statement: "Where children feel comfortable, is family. I think there are good examples that children can feel comfortable in gay partnerships. I represent  a much more liberal view than one would assume from   deep-rooted Tyrolean Catholics. "

Neo-relativist Rupprechter: In an “Open World View" There are no Contradictions

The ideological confusion of the Minister is even suspect to the Standard: "Why then do you always refer to yourself  again and again as conservative?" Rupprechter in the posture of a neo-relativists is of the belief that belief is daily and situational juggling : "I do not see any great contrast. Conservative means to maintain traditional values ​​- and that can also be done in an open world view ".
However, the Minister is optimistic that the ideological arbitrariness would prevail in his party soon: "The realignment of the party is in full swing - and I will bring an open approach."
Both Rupprechter and Karmazin belong to the Christian Democratic People's Party (ÖVP). The Austrian People's Party went to the elections of the previous year in September again forming a grand coalition with the Social Democratic Party of Austria (SPÖ), which has existed since 2007, and previously reigned from 1987 to 2000 in Austria.

Former Trotskyite - "I Have Learned a Lot of Political  Appreciation"

Perhaps this explains Rupp Rechters attitude with the aftermath of his anarchist past during his student days. At the time the  ÖVP ministers campaigned in the ranks of the Trotskyists. "Just as Jacques Chirac and President José Manuel Barroso also," he added half apologetically, half  proudly. "They were short phases, from which I have learned a lot of  political understanding.  It has  socialized me in that I was as a Green for the first hours of the occupation of Hamburg wetlands there -  which was less of a motivation than the outrage at  the government  driving over civil rights."
Of the Trotskyists in the Green movement to the Christian Democrats. Today Rupprechter would probably have a career in the Greens. Which he had at that time but  did not stay connected because the Greens referred to the EU at the time as “Moloch" and "have denigrated and fought against Austria's accession." That has now changed, yes.

"Problems" with Field Marshal Radetzky and Chancellor Dollfuss

That  surely  fits into the picture that Rupprechter also has "problems" with Austrian Field Marshal Josef Wenzel Graf Radetzky, world famous for the Radetzky March by Johann Strauss (father). The Minister of Tyrol  had the same kinds of problems, in spite of being “imprinted”  by the Christian social teaching, with the corporate Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss (1932-1934), who was shot in an attempted coup by the Nazis. These “aversions" round off the confusing picture of the new politically correct Austrian Minister of Agriculture.

Liturgical Abuse at "ORF-Mass" in the "Holy Land of Tirol"

At a Holy Mass in Tirol/ Schwaz- St. Barbara  parish a woman and a man "prayed" part of the Canon [Eucharistic Prayer].  Otherwise, there were also prescriptions of the Church that were in part ignored.

Vienna [kath.net] It has been reported to kath.net that a liturgical abuse occured on an Austrian Television broadcast.  Austrian Television broadcast a Holy Mass from the Parish of Schwaz- St. Barbara in Tirol.  The pastor celebrated this year their 25th year of anniversary and was consecrated by the old Bishop Paulus Rusch and Reinhold Stecher in 1985.  Rudolf Theurl was responsible for the celebration.  At the Canon of the Holy Mass, the prescriptions of the Church were ignored.  So, parts of the Canon were not said by a priest rather by a man and woman..  The conclusion of the Canon whic is "through Him with Him and in Him"  was then prayed by the faithful.

 Both completely contradicted the rubrics of the Mass.  In the Vatican document "Redemtionis Sacramentum" it is written:  The proclamation of the Eucharistic Prayer, which by its very nature is the climax of the whole celebration, is proper to the Priest by virtue of his Ordination. It is therefore an abuse to proffer it in such a way that some parts of the Eucharistic Prayer are recited by a Deacon, a lay minister, or by an individual member of the faithful, or by all members of the faithful together. The Eucharistic Prayer, then, is to be recited by the Priest alone in full.[131]
