Luther started rebellion not reform, says Cardinal Müller in rebuttal of Italian prelate

CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Gerhard Müller, the former head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, said that the Reformation “wasn’t a reform at all but rather a revolution,” in an article for an Italian Catholic journal. The cardinal said that it is unacceptable to describe Martin Luther’s break with Rome as “an event of the Holy Spirit.” Bishop Nunzio Galantino, secretary-general of the Italian bishops’ conference, had used that phrase in praising Luther at a conference last week.

    It's nice to get a dose of true history from a Catholic prelate for a change. Lately these accounts seem few and far between.
