PAGE 2 THE GUARDIAN, SEPTEMBER 12, 1969 Italian Bishops Support Cardinal in Parish Dispute Rome (NC) -- The Italian Epis- copal Conference (CEI) meeting here in special session has voiced full sympathy with the position of Ermenigildo Cardinal Florit of Florence in his dealings with the "rebel" parish of Isolotto. Giovanni Cardinal Urbani of Venice, conference president, read a special report to the bishops (Sept. 3). He said he had been asked to intervene in the affairs of the Florence archdiocese, where a group of dissident Cath- olics have joined their former pastor, now suspended for opposing the decisions of Cardinal Florit to transfer Father Enzo Mazzi from the Isolotto parish and to close the parish church until peace is restored. Cardinal Urbani said the re- quest came from both sides of the dispute. "To both who asked me to in- tervene in my capacity as presi- dent of the CEII said that the problem was properly that of the local church of Florence andhence within the competence of the archbishop." Cardinal Urbani added he had also received a letter from the bishops of the Tuscan region of Italy, in which Florence is located, expressing "full, brotherly soli- darity" with the archbishop and his auxiliary bishop. According to the news bulle- tin of the CEI meeting, Cardinal Urbani then turned to Cardinal Florit to say: "Echoing thevoice of the bishops of Tuscany, we express to you and to your anx- iliary bishop our fraternal soli- darity in your sufferings. We are clo to them spiritually in pray- er, in affections and in the hope that as quickly as possible the priests and laity of Isolotto and those who align themselves with them may understand that they cannot exist as a true ecclesial community if they do not have sincere loyalty and convinced dis- cipline with their own bishop." The news bulletin reported that the bishops present interrupted the statement of Cardinal Urbani to applaud and that they applaud- ed again at the end of his statement. The longstanding controversy in Isolotto broke into the open just before Christmas, 1968. In the course of the controversy, Father Mazzi lost his pastorate, the parish became divided and parishioners began holding re- ligious services without using the parish church. The refusal of Father Mazzi to withdraw his public support for a group that had occupied the Parma cathedral in a protest against what they called the Church's neglect of the poor be- gall the trouble with the cardinal. In December, the cardinal ban- ned a catechism published by the priest which presented Chris- tianity in terms of class conflict. The cardinal finally removed Fa- ther Mazzi as pastor following a dispute in a workers' parish near here in which Father Mazzi parti- cipated. There followed a series of demonstrations over the re- ception of the new pastor until Father Mazzi turnedoverthekeys of the parish early this year.
