CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Gerhard Müller, the former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, suggested that Pope Francis should appoint a panel of cardinals to hold a “theological disputation” on the contested issues arising from Amoris Laetitiae. He said that an open debate could ease the “polarization and polemics” that trouble the Church. “We must avoid a new schism and separations from the one Catholic Church,” the German prelate said.

    Open debate on what! There are clear corrections that are needed otherwise there are and will be bishops who twist the truth to support their liberal agendas. We need the Pope to clarify the questions already posed.
