German bishop: only universal Church can settle dispute on intercommunion
May 14, 2018
CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Rudolf Voderholzer of Regensburg, Germany, who has led opposition to a proposal for intercommunion in the country, argues that the policy approved by a majority of German bishops cannot properly be implemented without the approval of all the world’s bishops, since it involves a shift in Catholic doctrine. Pope Francis has asked the German bishops to reach their own settlement of the dispute.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
