Those who have come to the Plaza del Ayuntamiento de Toledo, in front of the Cathedral, have gathered in a circle, carrying a candle, and have not wanted to make statements; They have only said that it is an intimate act of reparation.

Among those present at the prayer of the rosary, which began at 9:00 p.m., there was a priest.

After the publication, on Friday, of the music video ‘Ateo’ by C. Tangana and Nathy Peluso inside the Primate Cathedral, the Archbishop of Toledo, Francisco Cerro Chaves, “deeply” regretted the recording and asked everyone to forgive the lay faithful, consecrated persons and priests who have felt “justly hurt by this improper use of a sacred place”, although shortly before the dean of the Cathedral Chapter, Juan Miguel Ferrer Grenesche, had justified the recording of the video.

In addition, the archbishop has summoned the Archdiocese to open the diocesan phase of the XVI Synod next Sunday, October 17, and has said that “as a result of recent events” he wants that celebration to be an invitation to repair sins. In the prayer that the Archbishop of Toledo has prepared for the Synod, he will beg to prevent “that we lose our way as weak and sinful people.” And it also includes the plea not to allow “ignorance to lead us down false paths. Grant us the gift of discernment so that we do not let our actions be guided by prejudices and false considerations ”.

The dean, alone

The tension between the archbishop and the dean cast doubt on his continuity in office. This Saturday, October 9, the transept of the Cathedral of Toledo hosted one of the concerts within the program of the El Greco Music Festival that this year celebrates its 8th edition. In-person sources at the event have explained to that the entire bench reserved for the Curia was empty during the concert except for the corner chair of the dean, Juan Miguel Ferrer. “He sat alone, giving an evident image of abandonment” in the Toledo temple, sources say.

Once the concert began, several people, well-known members of the socio-cultural sphere of the city, “have had the detail of leaving their seats and tucking him in, sitting next to him.”

The same sources explain as an anecdote that Carles Magraner, director of the ‘Capella de Ministrers’, protagonist of the event, encouraged the public at the end of the concert “to dance even though we are in a temple because that is how it was done in the 15th century”. The faces of the public, explain those present were “priceless.”
