Edit: some may remember that Bishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller was out of the running for the office of the CDF and that there were other Bishops being considered for this important job. The Bishop of Regensburg is hostile to Tradition if not just traditionalists. He does not maintain the orthodox position with regard to Our Lady's virginal character. He is also a creature of +Lehman.
At present, the German press is cheering for this man. The German press has been poorly informed before and are almost invariably partisans of the Left.
La Stampa is also reporting that he is back in the running, but they've been wrong before as well as reported at the G. Gilbert site.
Let's see if they are wrong as they have been before.
Regensburg Bishop Gerhard Ludwig Muller will apparently be the new Prefect of the Congregation for Doctrine and the Faith --- the decision will be made next week.
Regensburg (kath.net) The die has clearly fallen. The Regensburg Bishop Gerhard Ludwig Muller will apparently be the new Prefect for the Congregation of Doctrine and the Faith. This has been reported by several German papers. An official report is at present unavailable. As far as kath.net can learn, this decision, important for the Church worldwide, will be announced next week. Bishop Muler is at present active in several Roman boards and may be the successor to William Joseph Cardinal Levada.
