On May 19, 2020, Mrs. Marianne Pohl Henzen, above right, was named the Bishop's vicar for the Swiss city of Fribourg by Bishop Charles Morerod, third row below. She will replace Fr. Pascal Marquard, above left, on August 1.
Bishop Morerod administers three dioceses – Lausanne, Geneva and Fribourg – and he counts upon five episcopal vicars who act as his deputies. Pohl Henzen will be in charge of the German-speaking part of Fribourg. (The Tablet, May 24, 2020)
It is a huge step in the direction of admitting women into decisive positions in the Church and it paves the way for women priests, since the role of episcopal vicar has always been exercised by priests.
However, it is not the first ice-breaker on this path. Indeed, in January Pope Francis named Dr. Francesca di Giovanni to a post of Vatican Secretariat of State, fourth and fifth rows below. She is in charge of Vatican relations with States, which is a position second only to the Secretary of State, Card. Pietro Parolin.
Both nominations promote Feminism in the Church following the progressivist agenda practiced by the conciliar Popes, especially by Francis in his Querida Amazonia.
In the two first rows below, you have screenshots of new reports in French and Italian on Pohl Henzen being chosen for the episcopal vicar of Fribourg.
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Archbp. Lefebvre 1980
