The Prefect of the Congregation for the Faith, Archbishop Gerhard Müller, has written a letter asking for the withdrawal and revision of the proposal to allow remarried Catholics to receive the sacraments, reports Vatican Insider.

Archbishop Müller has disassociated himself from the proposal presented by an office of the Diocese of Freiburg to allow remarried Catholics to receive the sacraments.

In a letter dated October 21 and published in yesterday’s issue of Tagespost, Archbishop Müller dismissed certain positions expressed in the Diocese of Freiburg’s proposal. 

Müller recognises that the proposal Freiburg published at the start of October contains very correct and important pastoral teachings, but is unclear in its terminology and does not correspond with Church teaching in two points.
