CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Gerhard Müller, the former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, spoke about the limits of papal infallibility and the threat posed by the German Synodal Path, in an interview with the German service, now posted in an English translation by Catholic World Report.

The German cardinal says that “every every pope must distinguish precisely between his task and himself as a private person.” He explains: He must not impose his preferences on other Christians, like the Chinese, for instance, must study the Mao Bible or the wisdom of their Great Chairman.”

Of the German bishops’ Synodal Path, Cardinal Müller is unsparing:

In Germany, however, the issue is the attempt to take possession of Catholic institutions, church taxes and building stock for an organization that has abandoned the Catholic faith in its essential elements and has definitely left the ground of revelation.
