Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, one of the bishops who have signed a letter of warning to German bishops for their proposed reforms, emphasized on Tuesday that the Catholic Church is permanent and enduring.
“The teaching of Christ is timeless. It's not bound by any one generation, any one time or culture,” Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, one of the signers, told EWTN News Nightly on April 12. “It's universal, it applies to all times, all places, all cultures.”
Cordileone spoke after more than 70 bishops, including himself, signed an open letter to Germany's bishops warning that sweeping changes to Church teaching advocated by the ongoing process known as the “Synodal Path” may lead to schism. More signatories have added their names to the letter since its release Tuesday morning.
While Cordileone agreed this is not the first time that German bishops’ actions have been questioned, he said that this “is certainly the most egregious, I would say, example of that.”
