Vatican cardinal lauds late Cardinal Martini as a ‘prophet’

CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Michael Czerny, the new prefect of the Dicastery for Integral Human Development, praised the late Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini as a “prophet,” as he spoke at the publication of a new volume of the Italian prelate’s collected works.
Cardinal Martini, who headed the Milan archdiocese from 1980 to 2004, was perhaps the most influential liberal in the College of Cardinals; in an interview published just after his death in 2014, he described the Church as being “200 years out of date.”
