CDF prefect defends Catechism of the Catholic Church

Catholic World News - June 10, 2014

In a recent address delivered at St. Patrick’s College Seminary in Maynooth, Ireland, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith spoke on the “ecclesiality” of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the 1992 text declared by St. John Paul II to be “to a sure norm for teaching the faith.”

Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller devoted much of his address to defending the Catechism against two criticisms: that it was “an imposition of the Roman Curia” and that it is “now obsolete.”
