Cardinal Gerhard Müller on Synod: ‘This is the great hour of manipulation’

Following a report by La Croix that Pope Francis is considering imposing pontifical secrecy on the Synod on Synodality, Cardinal Müller, former prefect of the Congregations for the Doctrine of Faith, said: “I don’t know the intention behind this measure, but 450 participants will certainly not keep things under wraps. Many will exploit journalists for their own benefit or vice versa. This is the great hour of manipulation, of propaganda of an agenda that does more harm than good to the Church.”
