L.A, 2021-12-12 14:16:52. A Spanish bishop loses church powers after marrying an erotic writer
A bishop in Spain had his religious powers removed after he married a “corrupt” author of erotica with demonic overtones.
The Diocese of Solsona – where Xavier Novell Goma served as bishop – issued a statement on Saturday saying that Novell is now prohibited from administering the sacraments and participating in any active teaching, “both public and private,” although he can still maintain his status as bishop. .
According to the statement, Nouvel, Honorary Bishop of Solsona, concluded a civil marriage with Silvia Capalol on November 22, 2021, in the province of Barcelona. The statement then refers to Canon 1394.1 of the Catholic Church, which states that “a clergyman who attempts to marry, even if only a civil one, is liable to be suspended.”
Nouvel became Spain’s youngest bishop in 2010, at the age of 41, when he was ordained in Solsona, a small city north of Barcelona in Spain’s northeastern Catalonia region.
In September, Nouvel resigned as bishop – as the Vatican agreed and announced in its publication that month.
The statement from his diocese said Nouvel now, after marrying Capalol, is no longer able to “exercise the rights and functions inherent in the episcopal office”.
Neither Nouvel nor Cabalol released a statement regarding Nouvel’s suspension of religious powers or their recent marriage.
According to a BBC report, Nouvel has supported gay conversion therapy and also carried out exorcisms.
Capalol, 38, began her career as a novelist in 2015, according to a profile on the website of her publisher, Lacker. The profile says that she trained in clinical psychology as well as sexology and yoga, and also studied Catholicism and Islam.
On the publisher’s website, she was described as “a person who yearns to live to the fullest” and “a searcher of new feelings and sensations”.
Lacker also describes Capalol as “a dynamic and dissenting writer who has carved a niche in the thorny world of literature for turning all our moral and literary considerations on its head.”
One of Kabalol’s novels – titled “Gabriel’s Lust” – promises to transport the reader into a world in which he will find “psychopathy, cults, sadism, madness, the unreality of immorality, the crude struggle between good and evil, between God and Satan and between angels and demons”.
