Ok, there's a little bit in this offering from Tancred that is serious, namely, the reports that members of the German episcopacy were trying to get Pope Francis to ditch the idea of making Archbishop Muller a cardinal. Granted, these are just reports, but given the conflict that is going on right now, it isn't all that far-fetched.
Now, for the best part:
On the other hand, a contribution by Hans Küng in the "Passau Neue Presse", in which Müller was referred to as a "new Cardinal Ottaviani," who feels called to, "impose his conservative opinion of the faith on the Pope, the Council and to the whole Church."
Hoo Boy. I'd like to extend my personal thanks to Hans Kung for providing the best laugh I've had thus far in the New Year.
