The semi-official Vatican outlet Il Sismografo has launched a brutal attack on Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller. Müller had proposed that the Pope creates a group of cardinals in order to engage in a dialogue with his many theological critics.
The Vatican journalist and director of Il Sismografo, Luis Badilla, called this on September 27 a "crazy proposal" adding sarcastically, "We can only pray [for Müller]." The whole article is a nasty personal attack on the former Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
It can be excluded that the article appeared without Pope Francis' agreement.
