German Cardinal Gerhard Müller is the former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. His latest book is ‘You Shall Be a Blessing’, an affirmation of priestly life and ministry presented in twelve letters.
As Pope Francis opens his third trip to Asia today, visiting Thailand and Japan, there’s a pretty big doctrinal dog that hasn’t uttered a peep – debates over the theology of religious pluralism.
