Pope Francis has appointed a three-cardinal commission to find a “final, consensual solution” to the prolonged conflict between the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP) and its chancellor, the university announced in a statement.
The PUCP, in Lima, has been involved in a conflict with its chancellor, the Cardinal-Archbishop of Lima, Juan Luis Cipriano, who is a member of Opus Dei, since 2007 over who has the right to appoint the rector, supervision of its teaching and learning content and control of its not inconsiderable assets.
Tuesday’s announcement said the commission will be headed by Cardinal Péter Erdö of Budapest. The other two members are Canadian Cardinal Gérald Cyprien Lacroix and Chilean Cardinal Ricardo Ezzati Andrello, who is close to the Pope.
Cardinal Erdö tried to mediate between Cipriano and the vice-chancellorship in December 2011 but did not succeed.
