'There is no German Church, except in the minds of authoritarian bishops who abuse their office, of lay functionaries who are thirsty for power and of ideologically stubborn professors. In the light of the image of the Church of Vatican II, these men of the German national church are not as progressive as they think, but even more reactionary than they seem.'
‘St. Peter’s Basilica should be an example for the liturgy of the whole Church. But these new rules impose criteria that would not be tolerated in any other place, in that they violate common sense as much as they do the laws of the Church.’
El cardenal Gerhard Müller advirtió a los fieles que consideren "las dimensiones más profundas de lo que está en juego en este momento de la historia mundial, en lugar de ofrecer un juicio basado en sensibilidades subjetivas y preferencias ideológicas."
Cardinal Gerhard Müller warned the faithful to consider the 'deeper dimensions of what is at stake at this moment in world history, rather than offering a judgment based on subjective sensibilities and ideological preferences.'
