I can’t translate German, but I am pretty good at translating Progressive. The closest translation is “You better do it, Rome, or we will.”
Remember, one of the reasons that Pope Francis even called a Synod on this topic was because the German Episcopate was threatening unilateral action on this front.
Smells like schism to me. So much so, Cardinal Müller of the CDF has slammed the notion saying “It is an absolutely anti-Catholic idea that does not respect the Catholicity of the Church.”
So the president of an Episcopal Conference is threatening unilateral action against the authority of Rome on matters of both faith and morals, but never mind that. I wonder what the Trads will do?
