Cardinal Müller; the Head of the Vatican's Doctrinal Office is Sacked by Pope Francis

Multiple sources are reporting this though I believe it was Rorate Caeli that first broke the news. He was a moderate, but in the Bergoglian Vatican he might as well have been trying to revive the Inquisition.

According to Edward Pentin at NCR (the good one) the most likely candidates for the position are Archbishop Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer S.J., Secretary to the CDF, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna, and Archbishop Bruno Forte of Chieti-Vasto. If I were still Catholic, I would be trembling.

Glad you've decided to keep going. And infrequent posts are fine.

But, as I said below, I don't always agree. No Catholic need ever "tremble" about the Church. Promises were made, and they can be relied on. Traditionalist Catholic blogs would be a lot more attractive if they weren't in a constant state of horrified anxiety.

If true, a blessed and restful retirement to the good cardinal. (And yes, I remember the terrible fears expressed when he was appointed to the CDF, because of his appreciation of Father Gutierrez.)

Traditionalist Catholic 'blogs would be a lot more attractive if some - not all - of them weren't so mean.
