CDF prefect deplores leaking of letter

Cardinal Gerhard Müller, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, told the Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera that he would neither confirm nor deny signing a letter to Pope Francis expressing concerns about the methodology of the Synod of Bishops and the content of its working document.

“This is a new Vatileaks,” he said, referring to the leaking of Vatican documents in 2012. “The Pope’s private documents are the private property of the Pope and of no one else.”

Cardinal Müller deplored as “offensive and criminal” the characterization that Pope Francis is surrounded by “wolves” in the Curia who oppose him.

“I’m not a wolf against the Pope,” he said. “I know who the Pope is … I am the first collaborator of the Holy Father.”

Turning to the topic of Holy Communion for those who have remarried outside the Church, Cardinal Müller said that “people are suffering because their marriages are broken, not because they cannot receive Communion.”

“For us, the center of the Eucharist is the consecration,” he continued. “Each Christian has the duty to come to Mass, but not to receive Communion.”
