The chairman of the German Catholic bishops’ conference has responded to a letter from the Nordic bishops expressing alarm at the direction of the “Synodal Way.”
Bishop Georg Bätzing insisted in a letter dated March 28 that the controversial multi-year process presented no risk of schism.
In the letter, seen by CNA Deutsch, CNA’s German-language news partner, he said that the “Synodal Way” was not seeking to create a “Sonderweg,” a historically loaded term that literally means special path, for the German Church in isolation from the worldwide Church.
