Cardinal Müller chides pope

In a recent interview, the former head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith criticized the way Pope Francis dismissed him: “He did not give a reason,” the 69-year-old cardinal said. “Just as he gave no reason for dismissing three highly competent members of the CDF a few months earlier.” Cardinal Müller added: “I cannot accept this way of doing things. As a bishop, one cannot treat people in this way.”
