Müller is bad news for the SSPX

Müller back in the running according to La Stampa.
June 24, 2012

Last month (May 2012), according to Cathcon’s blog, Gerhard Müller, Bishop of Regensburg, was out of the running to replace Cardinal Levada at the CDF. Among the speculated reasons is his past hostility to the SSPX.

Today, Andrea Tornielli reports in La Stampa that the Pope is likely to choose the 64 year old Bishop of Regensburg, Gerhard Ludwig Müller, for the post of Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith., unless there are any last minute surprises.

This is the same Bishop who scoffs at the perpetual virginity of the Blessed Virgin, believes that it is problematic to refer to the Blessed Sacrament as the “body and blood” of Christ, and believes that Adam’s father was a monkey.

Can you imagine the productive meetings the Society will have with him in his role as the new head of the CDF? How does one discuss ecumenism and religious liberty with a Cardinal who believes that Adam was begotten by an orangutan? How is it that this Primate will be appointed to defend the doctrine of the faith?

    It sounds like Cardinal Müller is well qualified to defend the Vatican II religion.

  2. Pope Benedict I’m sorry to say is making his own problems by appointing men who are not totally in line with the faith, example his “friend” Cardinal Schoeborn. Then again many believe Benedict is a Hegelian, give the left something, give the right something watch the synthesis.

  3. As prefect of the CDF, he’s also head of the Ecclesia Dei commission, which oversees traditionalist groups.

    Y’all ready to jump into this man’s outstretched arms?

    The person that the Pope chooses for the head of the CDF will give a good indication of which way the wind is really blowing.

    If someone of the caliber Card.Burke then things are looking up.

    If another V2 advocate … well you know what that would mean.



    Just because the dates for the Crusade have passed doesn’t mean the Crusade is over, keep praying!!!
