Jesuit Pope shakes up Vatican by replacing conservative doctrinal chief with a Jesuit

 Archbishop Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer, SJ.
Are two Jesuits in papal leadership worse than
two Wendlands at Mordor?


Pope shakes up Vatican by replacing conservative doctrinal chief:



"VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - In a major shake up of the Vatican's administration on Saturday, Pope Francis replaced Catholicism's top theologian, a conservative German cardinal who has been at odds with the pontiff's vision of a more inclusive Church.

A brief Vatican statement said Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Mueller's five-year mandate as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a key department charged with defending Catholic doctrine, would not be renewed.

Mueller, 69, who was appointed by former Pope Benedict in 2012, will be succeeded by the department's number two, Archbishop Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer.

Ladaria, a 73-year-old Spaniard who, like the Argentine pope is a member of the Jesuit order, is said by those who know him to be a soft-spoken person who shuns the limelight. Mueller, by contrast, often appears in the media."

Brug, Wendland, and Bivens promoted the worst "translation" ever -
the new UOJ NIV.
It is cruel to add another Wendland to the faculty.
