Germany’s Cdl. Marx Making Himself the Enemy of Monasteries, Nuns
Peter Seewald, the German journalist who published several books with Joseph Ratzinger/Pope Benedict XVI, has recently been writing reports on the closing down of monasteries in the Diocese of Freising-Munich, always against the reverent will of the nuns in those monasteries.
In April of 2018, OnePeterFive mentioned the case of Altomünster, a thousand-year-old abbey in Bavaria. Cardinal Reinhard Marx decided to close down this abbey, in spite of the fact that there were several nuns still living there and several other younger women desiring to become nuns. These women religious were determined to foster that monastery and make it grow again.
