Relaxed and at ease, Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller returns a week after his appointment as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to the Diocese of Regensburg. A series of interviews for journalists are on the agenda for Friday: liberation theology, the SSPX and the situation of divorced and remarried. Minefields for an ecclesiastic, who has moved to third place in the Vatican's ecclesiastical pecking order.
Archbishop Mueller, first of all, congratulations on the new job. Since when did you know about your appointment?
I definitely knew it on 16 May, when the Holy Father has summoned me to his presence.
Did your commitment to the liberation theology endangers your appointment?
I do not know. If you know the Catholic faith, we know that to her essentially belong the social obligation, the responsibility for the world, the love of the poor. Liberation theology is a big word - but every Christian theology has something to do with the freedom of man. Also in South America in this context, it is about theological questions: Given the misery and indignity that many people around us can not imagine, given this glaring injustice, we can not simply go away with a pious raising of eyebrows about it. Faith and doing good go together. These are the two sides of a coin.
Are you then in agreement with the Pope?

The guy is an idiot.
Ping for later
And Catholics here on FR keep wanting to dispute how liberal the Church is.
Third in the pecking order, peddling liberation theology.
But the Church isn’t socialist. Noooooo.
I don’t deny it- and it has been getting worse, but I would never leave The Vatican.
The vanguard it plays on a larger scale is unfathomably important to the free world; as has it been.
High ranking yes, but one man only and certainly no Lord.
CLASSICAL LIBERAL...as in our founding fathers...YES I AGREE!
Yep - I’m sure God would throw himself out of our schools and government. :)
I served as an altar boy back when the Mass was celebrated in Latin...can still recite “the sucipiot”. Three years later the church abandoned 2000 years of history and adopted English for the Mass. That, and because I couldn’t afford the indulgences at the going rate, I left the church and am now a card-carrying agnostic.
The sheep go astray, exactly as Christ tells us they will, and this makes you an agnostic?
Logic makes me agnostic.
I agree, if we’re talking about true liberty I agree that Jesus is the greatest liberal ever.
After all, we all have the freedom to do our own thing....and to face the consequences if we do the wrong thing.
If we’re talking modern liberalism....well he’s free to face the consequences of his beliefs.
Does logic tell you why Christ’s tomb was empty?
>>>That, and because I couldnt afford the indulgences at the going rate,...>>>
Indulgence? Payment? I’ve been a Catholic all my life and have NEVER had to pay for indulgences. Indulgences are gained through prayer, or prayer and fasting.
Logic tells me to trust only that which I see. As a student of history I read the views of numerous historians...and even dabbled in eastern religions 40 years ago. I am what I am...as are you. Be well.
I’m referring to history...kind of a joke. Look it up, you may be amused...probably not, though. Be well.
And as a student of history you also trust that which others have seen.
In a way he is right, but his application is completely wrong.
Heaven is a socialist utopia, no private property, no rich and poor, not upper class and lower class, etc.
The problem is that the only person who’s just enough and good enough to be worthy of running such a place is God.
Earthly socialism is trying to establish this utopia on earth with man running such a place. Hence it places man in a position where only God deserves to be, and is idolatry.
Let’s look at the issue without blinders on.
God gives man what he needs. (a conservative action)
Lucifer(Satan,The Devil, whatever) gives man what he wants. (a liberal action).
The conclusion is obvious.
No, I don’t. I have to consider their voracity and decide who’s word I’m willing to “put my faith” in.
