Fr Mark Goring speaks to Alexander Tschugguel (who pitched Pachamamma into the Tiber) about what’s going on in Germany & Austria right now. Alexander provides some valuable insight into the comments of Cardinal Schönborn, which have encouraged those seeking to resist the teaching of the Church – quite extraordinary when you think about it! It does demonstrate how we’ve got to this place. These subversive strains of the Church have been facilitated and allowed to proliferate by men like Schönborn who clearly compromised in this area, despite being credited with the authorship of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Indeed, his involvement with that volume shows how well these men hide in high office and are quite prepared to say things completely at odds with the agenda they seek to promote, depending on who is in charge.
The very same game has long been played by our own Cardinal, Vincent Nichols.
