German Cardinal Brandmller: If the Francis Effect wasn’t only superficial, the Churches would be full!!

“That is superficial. Were this a religious movement, the churches would be full “- Against abolition of celibacy and women priests:” We take concerning faith clear boundaries. This is not a sign of weakness but of strength.

Hamburg (kath.net/KNA) Emeritus German Cardinal Walter Brandmüller (85) does not think much of the enthusiasm for Pope Francis: “It is superficial. Were this a religious movement, the churches would be full, “the former president of the Pontifical Committee for Historical Sciences said in an interview with the Hamburg magazine.

Brandmüller opposed the abolition of celibacy and against women priests: “We take concerning faith clear boundaries. This is not a sign of weakness but of strength, “he said. A “laissez-faire, laissez-aller would mean watching passively the devastation of the Church from within,” said the 85-year-old. A ecumenism, the Protestant and Catholic believers united, could this doctrine does not exist, because “still is the church in Luther’s sense a purely spiritual size. . Protestantism is so contrary to the Catholic faith ” as the greatest threat to the church today looks Brandmüller the absolutism of the individual: “Modernity does not ask: What is true?, but: What good is it? Is it feasible? Pragmatism and utilitarianism are the great heresies of our time.
