I decided to sign on to this open letter to my brother bishops in Germany out of a deep concern and love for our Holy Mother, the Church. In this age of rapid and widespread global communication, what happens in one part of the Church dramatically affects the rest of the Church. I am disappointed that the process taking place in Germany is undermining our Holy Father Pope Francis’ vision for synodality in the universal Church. What is happening in Germany is straying far from the apostolic faith and resembles more a parliamentary process than true synodality, in which we prayerfully seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is a fraternal, loving, but clear exhortation to my brother bishops in Germany to re-examine the troubling path they have taken.
