Edward Pentin confirmed the report that the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith has rejected the German bishops' proposal to give communion to Protestants [although this is a normal practice in this country].
Pentin’s source added that regarding this matter, there are “no differences” between Archbishop Ladaria and his predecessor, Cardinal Gerhard Müller.
Pentin has learned “that the Pope wants the letter [rejecting the proposal] to remain secret for reasons unknown”.

Unfortunately the refusal to release the letter publicly looks like a refusal to teach the universal Church: even though we *all* know what the German Bishops have proposed & the scandal it has caused. One would think a public correction is in order to prevent public scandal.
