    The German Church: «Marx is responsible for the failure»

    On the same day that Cardinal Marx resigned from his position as Archbishop of Munich, Cardinal Gerhard L.

The pope has to do more for the unity of the faith, climate and migrants are important but secondary issues.” And on the subject of Covid, “it was a grave error to allow the state to dictate the line to take on the Sacraments and the Eucharist”.
