“Pope Francis” dismisses Cardinal Müller from top post at “Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith”

“Pope Francis” dismissed Cardinal Gerhard Müller from his position as “Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith” (the Inquisition) today – perhaps making sure he gets the right “interpretation” (or maybe, “the left interpretation”) on Amoris Laetitia and no doubt on some of his future doctrinal statements, should he live so long as to be able to make more of them, Lord willing.

This is “Pope Francis” letting go the top doctrinal man in the Vatican. No word as to where he’s going, or who he would be replaced with. Imagine if “Pope John Paul II” had let Ratzinger go after just five years, and replaced him with a liberal “theological watchdog”.

CORRISPONDENZA ROMANA and RORATE CÆLI have just learned that His Eminence Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Faith since July 2, 2012, has been dismissed by Pope Francis on the exact expiry date of his five-year mandate.

Cardinal Müller is one of the cardinals who sought to interpret Amoris Laetitia along the lines of a hermeneutic of continuity with Church Tradition. This was enough to put him among the critics of the new course imposed by Pope Bergoglio.
