Reformist Priest Fr. Helmut Schuller Banned Again

Detroit Catholic Archbishop Allen Vigneron has banned an Austrian priest from speaking at a Westland Catholic parish today because the Rev. Helmut Schüller advocates allowing women and married men to be priests, in opposition to current church teaching … But Schüller said that the Catholic Church’s ban on women and married priests is a church order that can be lifted. It’s not an inherent part of the teachings of the Catholic Church, whose positions have varied over the centuries, he said. Church leaders ‘make a mistake’ when they say these are ‘the teachings of the church.’” By Patricia Montemurri and Niraj Warikoo, Detroit Free Press

    Father Schuller is a priest who is concerned about parish life and the well being of the people in his parish — many priest have joined him with similar concerns for their parish and for their ability to perform god’s work and they only want the hierarchy to stop, look and listen to priest and people as God directed them to do the Church’s mission. .
