German Bishop Firmly Refuses to Ordain "Traditional Minded Priests”

Bishop Felix Genn, 68, of Münster, Germany, stated during a press conference that “I can tell you firmly: I do not want pre-conciliar clerical guys and I will not ordain them”. The quote was reported by DieTagespost.de (September 28).

Last year Genn ordained for his 1.9 million Catholics diocese three priests.

He will participate at the Bishops’ Synod on Youth. One of Genn's priests, Father Norbert Happe, is furnishing his parish library with homosexual literature for young people.

In January 2018, the rector of Genn's seminary confessed that he has “sleepless nights” due to the lack of vocations.

In 2013 Genn was among the first promoters of the abortive morning-after pill in "Catholic" hospitals in Germany.

Genn is considered to be a "conservative". He is the superior of the priestly branch of the Johannesgemeinschaft which was founded by Father Hans Urs von Balthasar.

What exactly are traditionally minded priests Genn? Oh you mean the priests who uphold Catholic doctrine and administer the sacraments. Oh I forgot you are more interested in the climate change, social justice, and interacting with other religions.
@Dr Bobus no one actually says anything ‘really’ only suggests and puts it out there. Let it fall where it may. We all know what Von Balthazar said, skirting around heresy

He should be delighted to have them in his seminary and delighted to ordain them. They are faithful to the Church's teachings. They are a useless feeding ground for McCarrick types. They are chaste so fornication or sodomy would be out the window. Furthermore they make great saints. What's the problem Bishop Felix Genn, why do you not want to ordain these wonderful Catholic men? Without a … More

He wasn't the only one.

gloria.tv/…/S8x8y6vnhUvu3Mi…- “BTW, Balthasar never said that all people are saved. He advanced that possibility of it.“
Both are false, Balthasar directly opposes Almighty God. Jesus teaches us that the road to hell is wide, and many follow this way to destruktion.
Jesus is the singular Way, for the few who travel the narrow path, with Almighty God, to Almighty God.

This kreature states what HE WILL do. He therefore opposes a tremendously important teaching of our Christ Jesus: ALMIGHTY GOD’S WILL BE DONE.
Jesus insructs us, if you love Me, you will obey Me.

German bishops are influenced by Rahner.

BTW, Balthasar never said that all people are saved. He advanced that possibility of it. Nevertheless, Dare We Hope is a very poor book, not only with shabby conclusions but filled with lousy arguments

In a few years he has to ordain these "pre-conciliar clerical guys" because they will be the unique ones he will have. The VAT II seminary will be closed and sold bcs of lack of candidates.
Von “everyone is saved” Balthazar was a heretic. No wonder this Bishop is de formed

Conserving what and what for?? That is the real question! Maybe his mother taught him how to make jam. Jah! that is it.
