"did not the bishops at their consecration promise that they would proclaim faithfully the Gospel of Christ and would preserve, pure and entire, the Deposit of the Faith according to the Tradition" (Cd. Walter Brandmueller, 01/07/2015)

"Catholic leaders must reject "political correctness" even though to do so risks "execution by the media."


[Such a tendency, he observes, often manifests in "undermining the procreation of life in different ways and in putting into question the natural sexual identity of man and woman."]

 Noting a "dynamic of silence" from most bishops about the crisis, he accuses many of "thus silently watch[ing] the execution," wondering, "For what purpose did we receive the Sacrament of Confirmation?"

He continues: "And did not the bishops at their consecration promise that they would proclaim faithfully the Gospel of Christ and would preserve, pure and entire, the Deposit of the Faith according to the Tradition as held by the Church, always and everywhere?"

Cardinal Brandmüller wants the Church to stop preaching what he calls a "Christianity light" based on "earthly-economical principles" instead of "the Truth of the Faith." What's needed, he believes, is a "de-secularization" of the Church, "a program which is in firm contrast to the societal mainstream of today and lives out fully the contents of the Ten Commandments and Ethics of the New Testament."

"The Church can and must proclaim the Natural Moral Law which has been perfected by the Gospels and which is understandable for the man of good will." In the end, he believes, the Church has to somehow overcome all the anticipated resistance which would detract from that divine mission.
