KrautChurch “Catholic” Bishop Welcomes Appointment Of Apostate Priest As Lutheran Minister

[Reminiscent of a Franciscan priest who at the time of the Reformation looked “promising” to the Catholic cause but shortly after his election as a superior unexpectedly became a Protestant and married, but his apostasy was condemned not praised by fellow Franciscans and other Catholic leaders! – AQ Tom (Other than long ago reading about him in the volume on the Protestant Reformation of the late Henri Daniel-Rops’ History of the Church of Christ, which I do not have at hand, I cannot remember or find on the Internet any other details about him – because of my poor memory to come up with the proper search terms to lead me to him)]

The lapsed Franciscan Georg Reider, 62, was installed as a Lutheran minister in a Lutheran temple in Rome on April 28.

Reider was a Franciscan for 33 years and until 2001 even the Provincial superior of the Franciscans in South Tyrol, Italy.

In March 2011 he lapsed from his order, the priesthood and the Church to follow a woman, a German nurse who had studied Lutheran theology.

According to Vatican News (April 29) Bishop Ivo Muser of Bolzano-Brixen, Reider’s diocese of origin, sent a welcome message which Father Mario Gretter who is in charge of ecumenism in Musner’s diocese, read during the Lutheran ceremony.
