Cardinal Müller Denies He is an Antagonist to the Pope

Cardinal Müller does not want to be stylized as a pope's adversary "I'm not an antipode to the Pope on principle, and certainly not from an ideological point of view, whether it's called conservative or progressive, right or left"

Hamburg ( 
The German Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller does not want to become a pope's rival, according to the Pope Francis' recent criticism of the Curia. In present "time" Müller said, "In no case, would I like to be styled in the German press to a rival of the Pope!" After the Pope's Christmas address there was speculation that Francis meant especially Müller as confidant of the former Pope Benedict XVI. [Who recently praised him in the Herald.] To the unusually clear criticism of Francis to intrigues in the Vatican, Müller says: "In any case, intrigues and plots are incompatible with the professional honor of a clergyman."

Müller himself had to resign from the office of Prefect of Faith last summer. In addition he said that at the time, he was surprised, "because neither objective nor subjective reasons were mentioned." He admits that he criticized the Pope's style, but: "It was not about me, I had protected three of the best collaborators in my congregation, who had been dismissed without notice, without any reason, if that was improper or unwise I am a priest and not a courtier, Basta!" 

He does not see himself as Francis' conservative antagonist: "I'm not an antipode to the pope in principle, and certainly not from an ideological point of view, be it conservative or progressive, right or left." Pope Francis is neither liberal nor conservative and does not need an opponent, neither conservative nor progressive."

In what lifetime is PF not a liberal? "Amoris Laetitia" is a major flawed document. The fact that it is an "exhortation" and not an encyclical should be a major source of concern. Muller has to step up and be counted instead of "hiding underneath the altar".

All these Vaticanistas are becoming like the Kardashians. I don't care or want to hear about them anymore.

Cardinal Burke, where art thou?

Clinton R. said...

It would be better to be an opponent of the Pope's than God's.

Exactly, could care a less what these sad clowns have to say and that includes Burke. Hey Cdl Burke, how's the response to the Dubia coming? Whatever, wait for chastisement, that's the only thing that will clean out these Augean stables

"Page 117, of the pope's book, On Heaven and Earth, in regards to same-sex unions
“If there is a union of a PRIVATE NATURE, THERE IS NEITHER A THIRD PARTY NOR IS SOCIETY AFFECTED. Now, if this union is given the category of marriage and they are given adoption rights, there could be children affected. Every person needs a male father and female mother that can help them shape their identity. - Jorge Mario Bergoglio
Approval of same-sex sexual unions is approval of same-sex sexual acts.
Prior to being elected pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, by condoning same-sex sexual acts in relationships that he referred to as private, did not include children, and were not called marriage, denied the Sanctity of the marital act. To deny the Sanctity of the marital act, is to deny that God, The Most Holy And Undivided Blessed Trinity, Is The Author of Love, of Life, and of Marriage, and thus deny Salvational Love, God's Gift of Grace and Mercy. To deny The Divinity of The Blessed Trinity, is an act of apostasy.
The election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not valid.

Truth will not contradict The Truth. Every element of Truth serves to complement and thus enhance the fullness of The Truth.

God's Truth is mighty, and it shall prevail."

"It is about the marriage", in Heaven and on Earth.

It is Through, With, and In Christ, in the Unity of The Holy Ghost, that Holy Mother Church exists.

One bridegroom, one bride, on earth.

One Bridegroom, One Bride, (One Holy Mother Church), in Heaven.

To deny the sanctity of the marital act, which is Life-affirming, and Life-sustaining, and can only be consummated between a man and woman, united in marriage as husband and wife, is to deny that God, The Most Holy And Undivided Blessed Trinity, Is The Author of Love, of Life, and of Marriage, and thus deny Salvational Love, God's Gift of Grace and Mercy.

The denial of The Unity Of The Holy Ghost (Filioque), is the source of all heresy; There Is only One Word of God, One Truth of Love Made Flesh, One Lamb of God Who Taketh Away The Sins of The World, Our Savior, Jesus The Christ, thus there can only be One Spirit of Perfect Love Between The Father and The Son, Who Proceeds from both The Father and The Son, in The Ordered Communion of Perfect Complementary Love, The Most Holy And Undivided Blessed Trinity.

"Our Lady was the one who prevailed on her Son to work His first miracle at Cana in Galilee. She is still the one, through whose intercession He wants to perform miracles now, on earth, in our day. But there is one condition: We who have the faith, must believe. And we who have the grace, must use it to live lives of heroic virtue." Father John Hardon

Our Lady of Fatima, Destroyer Of All Heresies, Pray for us!

"And he said to me: Write: Blessed are they that are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith to me: These words of God are true."

May Our Lady's Immaculate Heart Triumph, sooner, rather than later:

That should read:
The erroneous notion that private morality and public morality, can serve in opposition to one another, and are not complementary, has led to grevious error in both Faith and reason. God declares what is Good.

N.D. said...

He simply may not be aware that the election of Jorge Bergoglio is not valid because prior to being elected pope, Jorge Bergoglio, denied the Sanctity of the marital act and thus the Sanctity of marriage.

How far has the Catholic bar been lowered when MÜLLER is considered orthodox?

Thanks for the clarification.
