Protestant Communion: Cardinal Müller Corrects Cardinal Marx

Cardinal Gerhard Müller has pointed out on firstthings.com (April 20) that communion in the sacraments cannot be separated from ecclesial communion.

He rebukes Munich Cardinal Reinhard Marx and his plan to legitimate Protestant Communion which has been a compulsory practice in Germany for decades.

Müller explains to Marx that it cannot be that Dogmatic theology says one thing, and Pastoral theology does the opposite, “What is dogmatically wrong will have harmful effects on pastoral work to the extent that the latter will be guided by false principles, endangering the salvation of souls.”

Müller concludes that neither the bishops nor the Pope have "any competence" to intervene in the substance of the sacraments.

The history of many religious movements illustrates this: religions that are fuzzy at the boundaries are very easy to leave

The greatest threat to a religious institution isn't heresy, but to deny there's such a thing as heresy.

“He who opposes God in unbelief and disobedience hardens his heart and closes his mind,” Cardinal Müller said. “The rigid person,” he added, “is not he who fulfills the commandments of God,” but “he who rejects them with a hard heart and proud mind.”
Muller will be soon excommunicated.
Marx will be soon canonized.

If the Protestants want so much to have communion why not be Catholic ,This the message that the german cardinals have to convey.

To be clear, in the photo Cardinal Gerhard Müller is speaking with the diminutive Peruvian, Fr. Gustavo Gutierrez, the so-called father of Liberation Theology. The Vatican Swamp needs to be drained.
