Levada's resigning‽
#1
Levada is to resign from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, leaving Müller in pole position to substitute him. Meanwhile, the Vatican library is getting a new librarian and Bertone’s substitution appears imminent

Bishop Müller is also well known as the ordinary of the German diocese in which the Society of St. Pius X has one of their seminaries.  After Benedict XVI lifted the excommunications of the four SSPX bishops in January 2009, the Bishop of Regensburg made unfortunate public statements that he would consider it “a schismatic act” if the SSPX tried to ordain priests later that year in Zaitzkofen.  Such intemperate language aimed at Traditionalists must play well in German Catholic circles;  there has been more of it in the years since. 

The Bishop of Regensburg has not concealed his dislike for the Society of St. Pius X.  In pre-Vatican-II days his attitude toward them might have been described as “theological animus”.  What are the chances that the Holy Father would appoint such a churchman to head the CDF, now that the Congregation is directly in charge of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei which supervises the application of the 2007 Motu Proprio concerning the traditional Latin Mass?

It's called an Interrobang.

It's good to see him resign, but they'll probably just replace him with another modernist.

Very interesting. Is an impending SSPX reconciliation (Lord willing) just too much for him to handle? ...

He's reached the mandatory retirement age of 75. Every bishop hands in his official resignation when they reach 75. It's a good thing it's being accepted and Levada is not being kept around much longer.

Appointing Muller as the new head of the CDF...wow, God's rottweiler is really at it again, hunting down those liberation "theologians."
