Cardinal Reinhard Marx, member of the pope’s inner circle of closest advisers, advocate of the Kasper proposal, and head of the German bishops’ conference, can now add to his list of titles, “Great admirer of arch-heretics.”
In a report from Gloria.TV, we are treated to this quote from the aptly-named Cardinal:
In a meeting with the president of the Protestants in Germany, Munich Cardinal Reinhard Marx has again sung the praises of Martin Luther calling him – quote – “an awe-inspiring seeker of God as I would wish my parish-priests and theologians to be.”
Check out the full report here for more on Luther, and a surprise cameo from me (which I was not expecting when I started the video):
