Archbishop Bans Cardinal Müller From University Because New Book is, "Against the Pope"

(Madrid) Pope's confidant as a censor? Madrid Archbishop Carlos Osoro Sierra forbade Cardinal Gerhard Müller, Prefect of the faith of the Catholic Church, to present his latest book "Informe sobre la esperanza" (State of  Hope) at the Catholic University of San Dámaso present in Madrid. The reasoning? Because it was "a book against the pope."
The renowned Spanish Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos (BAC), whose director is the priest Carlos Granados, led the interview with Cardinal Müller, on which the book was based, has invited the German cardinal for next week to Spain in order to present the interview book  in Valencia, Madrid and Oviedo.
The book is about the situation of the Church.The title is a reference to the famous book, published 30 years ago this week by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and Vittorio Messori "State of the faith". The content promises the same explosiveness. A German edition is already in preparation.

Archbishop of Madrid Prohibits Book Launch

"Informe sobre la esperanza" - The new book by Cardinal Müller
In Madrid, the Spanish capital, the presentation was to take place at the Archdiocesan  University San Dámaso, which doubles as a seminary of the Archdiocese of Madrid. But Archbishop Osoro banned the book launch. He wanted "nothing to do with a book against the pope"  said Infovaticana .
The presentation will now be at the University Francisco de Vitoria instead, a University of the Legionaries of Christ and of course without Archbishop Osoro, who had refused the invitation.
The unfriendly uninviting of the Cardinal Prefect and the repellent treatment by the Madrid Archbishop had been a prelude. In the Spring at the Plenary Assembly of the Spanish Bishops' Conference ​​Osoro and other bishops close to him  made the publication an issue. The group criticized that the  BAC had published this book, "without asking". Osoro justified his criticism by saying that the book highlighted a "conflict" between Cardinal Müller and Pope Francis that it did not exist in reality.
As recent events show,  Archbishop Osoro doesn't even believe his own  thesis. It only served  to exert pressure on the BAC, who did not back down and did not cancel the series of events at the book presentation.  Thereupon the ban the book from the archdiocesan university was imposed as the next step.

Has Archbishop Osoror falsified his resume?

Catholic University of San Damaso in Madrid
Meanwhile, there is provided in Spain with increasing insistence on the question of why Archbishop Osoro "has lied to the Vatican," said Infovaticana .
Archbishop Osoro, born in 1945, was formerlythe  Archbishop of Valencia. When Pope Francis made  Madrid Archbishop Cardinal Antonio Maria Varela Ruoco an emeritus for reasons of age, it was left to him  by the Congregation for Bishops, to propose as is usual, the selection of three candidates. Francis refused all and promoted instead, Osoro, from Valencia to Madrid. However, as the Archbishop of Valencia, he appointed Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera, whom he removed from the office of Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship.
Prior to his appointment to Madrid, Osoro had to send a resume to the Vatican, which was published in extracts  with the appointment. Therein, Osoro claimed to have achieved four licentiates: in philosophy, theology, science and education.
In Daily Bulletin of the Vatican press office, which announced the appointment in 2014, it states:
Mons. Carlos Osoro Sierra è nato a Castañeda, provincia e diocesi di Santander, il 16 maggio 1945. Dopo aver studiato Magistero presso la Escuela Normal ed aver esercitato la docenza per un anno a Santander, è entrato nel seminario per le vocazioni adult Colegio Mayor El Salvador di Salamanca, ove ha frequentato i corsi di Filosofia e Teologia presso la Pontificia Università di quella città, ottenendo la licenza nelle due discipline . Ha pure conseguito la licenza in Scienze Esatte dell'Università Complutense di Madrid e in Pedagogiadell'Università di Salamanca. (Emphasis added by the editors)
In Spain, voices claiming publicly that Osoro have not acquired in reality one of the four Licentiates. In the Congregation for Bishops  journalistic inquiry was excluded because of the secrecy of the proceedings of a bishop's appointment. Unofficially it was said, in the Congregation, the resume was not checked after Pope Francis rejected all of the tested and nominated candidates and had appointed  Osoro instead.
Spanish observers do not rule out that there is a connection between the affront to Cardinal Müller and the rumors about the fake CV.  "Osoro now needs a friend in Rome. A very high friend," said Francisco Fernandez de la Cigoña.
  Whatever may be the personal reasons for Archbishop Osoro: To deny access of a Cardinal Prefect of the CDF   to a Catholic university to present his book, presents an unprecedented break  in  manners. The justification that the book is allegedly  "against. the pope" is an affront that certainly has  a very sharp point. "The book must be important," said Fernandez de la Cigoña, "if there are censorship attempts."

  1. I don't think he can "ban" a cardinal. Muller outranks him in terms of jurisdiction.

    But again, it's Francis Church these days so who knows.

    1. Cardinals have no higher jurisdiction over bishops who are ordinaries of a diocese. An ordinary of a diocese can determine if they want a Cardinal speaking at a diocescan institution. I guess the only person a diocesan bishop can not prohibit from this is the Pope himself as he has universal jurisdiction.

    2. If His Eminence is undermining the Holy Father, the Archbishop is doing the right thing. He has a duty to preserve the Church in his diocese, and if, in his judgement, this step is one he has to take, then good for him.

    3. Defense of Catholic doctrine and soft criticisms of a very heretical pope is not an act of undermining a pope. It is an act of charity for the whole Church.

    4. @Obnoxious Papist: You could also say that it the responsibility of Cardinal Muller as well as such as Cardinal Burke to speak out against the hidden agenda of Pope Francis.

    5. Not so long ago, criticising a reigning Pope would have been next to unthinkable. Criticising a priest used to be regarded as something one just did not do; bishops even less so (suing a bishop used to be an excommunicable offence); and Popes even less than that.

      What "hidden agenda" ?

      Delete
    6. BTW: what gives any layman any right to call a Pope "heretical" ? And why zero in on the HF, when several of his recent predecessors are arguably even more liable to criticism ?

  2. It's the moving of the demon spirit--no doubt Muller will be soon placed under house arrest w/Manelli.

  3. “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops.”

    1. That one lung breaths out more poisonous air that the faithful Catholics are being choked ! C. Osoro is worse than a third rated politician ; he may fall at the feet of PF to get what he wants . Fatima Message is seen being fulfilled "a cardinal against another Cardinal and Bishop against another Bishop."
      The dignity and decorum of Cardinals and Bishops are being trampled under the feet by these men and they are becoming agents of the Devil. God have mercy on us.

    Maybe they can make Abp Osoro a Cardinal to succeed Cardinal Wuerl. That would be swell!

  6. Who would ever think it would come to this--the church practicing censorship? And in Spain, no less! Unbelieveable!

    1. Very appropriate. A revived Inquisition might be no bad thing. The Church has the obligation to protect her members against false doctrine and against the troublers of the Church. There is nothing with censorship - why is it OK outside the Church, but not within her ? If it was OK in Acts 19, during the 1st century, what makes it wrong now ? People do not have the right to do or say what they want.

  7. Vindictive, petty minded, mean spirited. This is a disgrace to the bishopric and the church. Such individuals cannot stand the painful truth. So they suppress it. A more subtle form of this is to ignore and marginalise the truth bearer - and we know who is an expert in this.

  9. The typical liberal sarcasm of Tony V above should be noted (liberals naturally gravitate to the foppish sarcasm often found among screeching gays). Books that dissiminate error, heresy, and immorality should indeed be censored and prohibited in a sane, healthy and Catholic society:"Beware of those that kill not the body but the soul." This book by Cardinal Mueller does not appear to be so---its great offense must be that it hints at the grave wounds inflicted on the Mystical Body by Francis and his machiavellian politicking. So you can expect the sycophants, like the archbishop of Madrid, to come to the fore to defend not truth but their chances of career preferment. Spain, to her immortal honor, has indeed banned books---books that promote the lies and soul-murdering ideas of the Protestants and the Masons. Good for Spain! All sane, real Catholics should salute her for that. This book by Cardinal Mueller does not fit that category: the tables have been turned and now the heretics rule the Church, hence good books, those that tell the truth, are not welcome. Edmund

    1. Hey, Sir: How many books did Jesus ban?

      Delete
    2. Nor did He write books either, Tony V. Throw out the Bible? We have to be reasonable in argumentation.

    3. "tony v' and his ilk are never reasonable in argumentation. They're vulgarian anarchists.

      Delete
    4. For the record, I've never even been to Vulgaria, though of course I can't speak for my ilk.

      Anyway, it seems the Archbishop is going to the party after all, so the whole thing was a big misunderstanding (like the Spanish Inquisition, I guess).

    5. It could have stood to be a lot more thorough.

    6. The burning of bad books has precedent in the early days of the Church, in Acts 19.

      Delete
    7. Tony V: That is an offensive question to ask about Jesus, implying he would be a small-minded liberal "open to all ideas." In fact, Jesus condemned hypercritical exercises and sophistries of many scribes of his day. Would that we could ban books promoting the slaughter of vulnerable life.

    so that we can lay the foundations necessary for a success...

    Also, if there is anyone who can translate this announcement into good German, let us know by stopping by our blog and dropping a comment...

    1. No, Jesus did not burn or ban any books as this "terrible crime against humanity" had to wait for the feverish, pathological mind of modern liberals to turn it into the "great" instrument with which to attack the Church for Her intransigence in the care of the souls entrusted to Her---until recently, that is. Tony V should go back to the fetid cafe where he meets his malodorous, malnourished, tofu-eating Lefties so they can continue to rant against the imaginary great injuries perpetrated against their goddess "False Liberty"---the same deity that was "enthroned" at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris during the French Revolution in the midst of the freedom fest known in history as "The Reign of Terror."
