Cardinal Müller: In Francis' Vatican Power Is More Important Than Truth

The former Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, has criticized, that in Pope Francis' Vatican, power is more important than truth, "Today, diplomacy and questions of power have priority [in the Vatican]".

During a presentation of his book "Der Papst - Sendung und Auftrag" (The Pope - Mission and Task) at an exhibition about the papacy in the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen in Mannheim, Müller called this a "wrong direction that needs to be corrected."

While in Francis' Vatican the Secretary of State has become the most important power center, theology, the search for the truth, has become secondary. But "things have always gone wrong in the Church when the Church goes after the power."

Instead, Faith in Christ should be the center and the Pope should not serve the powerful but be the "servant of salvation", Müller added.

Archbishop Georg Gänswein, the private secretary of the former Benedict XVI, was present at the event.
