Peru university's Catholic identity questioned
Catholic News Service


The Pontifical Catholic University of Lima, Peru, must amend its statutes in conformity with Vatican norms for the good of the university and the whole church in Peru, says the Vatican’s secretary of state. 
Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone met with the university’s rector to discuss “the conclusions the Holy See has reached following intense dialogue and numerous meetings over the course of many years” between the university’s grand chancellor, Cardinal Juan Cipriani Thorne of Lima, his predecessors and the university, the Vatican said. 
Cardinal Cipriani has publicly objected to some of the university’s activities and said a Catholic university must provide a moral evaluation and the church’s teaching on issues. 
He wants his role as the university’s grand chancellor be less honorific and more actively involved in overseeing the university. 
The university has been mired in a longstanding dispute with the Archdiocese of Lima over property that was willed to the university more than half a century ago. 
Cardinal Cipriani has publicly questioned the way the university manages the inheritance and has insisted on more transparency and accountability to the archdiocese.
