SANTO TORIBIO DE MOGROVEJO - SAINT TURIBIUS OF MOGROVEJO - (1X25) FICCIÓN

Santo Toribio de Mogrovejo fue nombrado Obispo de Lima en 1581. Allí se dedicó a lograr el progreso espiritual de sus fieles. La ciudad estaba en una grave decadencia espiritual con un sistema en que el régimen de patronato facultaba a los virreyes a intervenir en asuntos eclesiásticos, dando origen a frecuentes disputas entre el poder espiritual y el temporal.Las medidas que tomó contra los abusos que se cometían le atrajeron muchas persecuciones y atroces calumnias. Sin embargo, prefirió callar y solía decir: "Al único que es necesario siempre tener contento es a Nuestro Señor".

Toribio de Mogrovejo era consciente de la enorme extensión de su arzobispado. A este hecho, y a las tres visitas pastorales que realizó recorriendo y organizando su jurisdicción, se debe el origen de las circunscripciones políticas que asumiría la colonia y continuaría posteriormente la república peruana. Estas visitas pastorales lo forzaron a pasar solo ocho de sus veinticuatro años como arzobispo en la ciudad de Lima. El resto del tiempo, lo pasó viajando por el país.

Saint Turibius of Mogrovejo was named Bishop of Lima in 1581. There he dedicated himself to achieve the spiritual progress of his community. The city was in a serious spiritual decline with a system in which the patronage regime empowered the viceroys to intervene in ecclesiastical matters, giving rise to frequent disputes between spiritual and temporal power. The measures taken against the abuses that were committed made him the target of persecutions and atrocious slanders. However, he preferred to remain silent and used to say: "The only one whom we need to always keep happy is Our Lord".

 

Toribio de Mogrovejo was aware of the enormous extension of his archbiepiscopate. This fact, and the three pastoral visits that he made while touring and organizing his jurisdiction, were the origin of the political circumscriptions that the colony would assume and the Peruvian republic would later on continue. These pastoral visits forced him to spend only eight of his twenty-four years as archbishop in the city of Lima. He spent the other sixteen years traveling around the country.
