It would be humorous if it were not so annoyingly disingenuous. Cardinal Müller continues to insist that Amoris Laetitia (AL) is perfectly orthodox even after publication by the Vatican’s publishing house of Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio’s pamphlet on Chapter VIII of AL, declaring that people living in “irregular situations” — i.e. divorced and “remarried” or cohabiting — should be granted absolution and admitted to Holy Communion if they “sincerely seek” the sacraments following a “period of discernment.” And Müller continues to criticize bishops for giving AL the same interpretation endorsed by the Pope himself in his letter to the bishops of Buenos Aires.
