Personnel Is Policy - Cardinal Muller Removed From CDF

Today it was announced that Pope Francis has removed Cardinal Gerhard Muller from his position as Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.  He will take post as Archbishop of Mainz.  His replacement at the CDF?  Cardinal Christophe Schonborn of Vienna: yes, this one.  He is also the prelate that overrode one of his priests when the latter blocked an openly gay man from sitting on a parish council - just two months after Cardinal Wuerl ousted Father Guarnizo for likewise being a faithful priest.  See here for more of Schonborn's destructive antics.

We knew this was just a matter of time, didn't we?  Cardinal Muller has been one of the few remaining voices of sanity and orthodoxy in the Vatican, much to the chagrin of many of his fellows and perhaps even Pope Francis.  Read here for an account of the many times he, as Prefect of the CDF, spoke truth to the lunacy spewing forth from the Vatican.  More than a year ago I predicted that Muller might well find himself in progressive cross-hairs; that has come to pass.  Surprise!!

As they say, "personnel is policy".  With all the faithful prelates being ejected from positions of influence in the Vatican in favor of progressives and de facto heretics, can there linger any reasonable doubt regarding the policies of Pope Francis?

Correction - There is reason to hope that this change has not happened and that the reporting was premature.

  4. You have linked to a report on Eponymous Flower, who links to a report from Malaysia which says the Pope might do something? Please. Why spread what began as a rumour, and seems to be still a rumour? No one else has this 'story' because it's not a story.

    1. Let's pray that you are correct. However, often where there's smoke, there is fire.

    2. I hate to rag on about this but how can you dismiss this as "where there's smoke, there is fire" when you reported the smoke as if it were the fire? You did. You said this was 'reported' - in my humble opinion this brings me to take everything you say with a grain of salt.

  5. Who am I to judge? But if you disagree with me, all hell will be loosed upon you.

  6. People seem to forget that even after Simon received the "keys of the kingdom" and became Peter, he ended up denying he even knew Jesus Christ. Which goes to show you can't trust every word of a Pope! You have to be discerning.
