Palermo. Primatiale Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption, Wednesday,
April 27, 2016: Feast of the Athletes. Image: His Excellency Most
Reverend Monsignor Corrado Lorefice, Archbishop-Metropolitan, Primate of
Sicily, on a bicycle in the chancel of his cathedral.
The Archbishop was given a bike that he didn’t want to try outside the
church. Instead, he rose immediately and in full regalia as celebrant,
chasuble and miter, got on the bike and drove it through the
presbytery of his episcopal church. The Cathedral of Palermo is not only
where lay the Stauferkaisers Henry VI. and Frederick II. and the Norman
King, Roger II. It is above all one of the oldest Christian places of
worship in Europe. The area of the Cathedral was secret at the latest
in the second century gathering of Christians in underground tunnels.
Here the martyrs of the persecution of Christians were buried. The
Christians gathered at their graves. In the early fourth century, the
construction of the first cathedral was carried out. Under Pope Gregory
the Great, the second cathedral was built around 600.
Msgr. Lorefice belongs to the so-called “compassionate” bishops appointed by Pope Francis.
He has written favorable assessments of liberation theology.
