This is the beginning of a very great heresy that will overrun the Church...but the Bishop seems more interested in obtaining his 15 minutes of fame. He said he made his decision after "discernment." Well, that settles it - we'll disregard Scripture and precedent and rely on personal discernment.
After his non-stop criticizing the Pope for 2 years, and the Catholic Church facing its biggest crisis in 500 years with homosexuality and heresy...it is delightful that Cardinal Muller is now calling for "correct table manners" as his "solution de jour." As the Catholic Church burned....Muller played the fiddle.
If you wish to know in which direction the U.S. Catholic Church is heading....there was not one message of condolence from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops on the passing of Bishop Morlino. Horrible lack of charity and respect for the dead. Perhaps the good Bishop made them too uncomfortable with his staunch opposition to abortion and homosexuality. Eternal rest, God grant to him!
Respectfully said, Cardinal Muller bears very close watching....he is often inconsistent and contradictory in his numerous public comments and positions.
The entire Nation of Germany is rapidly approaching the point when they will have to be excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church..."the fig tree that must be cut down." They have provided great harm to the world in the last 100 years. Good and Holy Germans - please arise, your Country calls you.
Muller will be proved "overwhelmingly wrong," Archbishop Vigano did not go "too far" in demanding the resignation of Pope Francis. Surely, Muller knows that resignations and firings are always the first step in cleaning up a crisis. Vigano uncovered the deep problems; provided the facts; and pointed to the solution. "Too far?" I think not. Muller is posturing.
Sadly, the whole Francis-Vigano-McCarrick affair has done incalculable harm to the Catholic Church. If only O'Malley had acted on the Fr. Boniface Ramsey Letter alerting him to the evil antics of McCarrick, we would not be enduring this crisis. It is the same inaction and denial that now envelopes Pope Francis, his supporters and the Roman Curia, at this very moment.
Respectfully said: It is over and done with....let us move on. We are not brining back Benedict XVI to the papacy.
How does Benedict XVI explain the planned "Conversion of St. Paul" at Damascus? The famous conversion of the Jew Alphonsus Ratisbone by Our Lady and Her Miraculous Medal in 1842? Or the powerful passage on the "Road to Emmaus"...."Oh you foolish men...so slow to believe....."

Let us forget the Benedict XVI matter and move on...look to the future. What we need now, is a brand new Pope filled with love, courage, orthodoxy and integrity. Most Holy Trinity...have Mercy on us!
Our Lady of Fatima and St. Pius X were correct: Russia and Modernism will, indeed, spread their errors around the world. What is Modernism? It is the spirit of novelty, pride and ignorance that ripens into heresy. We are awash in this evil. Turn to Our Lady....only She can help us crush heresy!
Why are the U. S. Catholic Bishops allowing speeches to be given to themselves by a dissident nun with the (visible) Blessed Sacrament nearby in Exposition? This seems disrespectful and a grave misapprehension of the Honor due to the Real Presence.
Archbishop Vigano will be remembered as a very great prelate...who led - standing strong and fearless when he got the call. God bless, Vigano!
This is scary....it fits Our Lady's 1973 "severe chastisement" prophesy at Akita, Japan: "churches and altars will be sacked..." It is not Jesus asleep in the boat....it is our hierarchy.
I agree with Bishop Cary....reading his entire (CWR) interview is important. Good stuff. Perhaps he could have also reminded us, "Outside the (Catholic) Church, there is no salvation."
The Catholic Catechism (#1861) offers a very powerful warning on missing Sunday Mass. Mortal Sin, "causes exclusion from Christ's kingdom and the eternal death of hell, for our freedom has the power to make choices for ever, with no turning back." I didn't see that warning given at the Youth Synod, which is what true Pastors would do.
