    CNA Staff, Oct 25, 2020 / 02:30 pm MT (CNA).- Benedict XVI has distanced himself from a Catholic community with which he had maintained close ties for decades.

    The German magazine “Herder Korrespondenz” reported Oct. 25 that the Pope Emeritus had taken the step regarding the Catholic Integrated Community.

    Referring to the group by its German initials, IG, Benedict told the publication: “Obviously I was not informed about some things in the inner life of the IG, or even deceived, which I regret.”

    He had given the group ecclesiastical recognition during his time as archbishop of Munich and Freising, from 1977 to 1982.

    Why would you say Benedict wants to be like Luther? It makes no sense as to what the article was talking about. It was funny.

    Luther walked from the Church and wanted to start his own. Not a certain Catholic community. Benedict is very much Catholic and a son of the Church. The article has not mentioned anything you seem to be inferring.

    He is loyal to the Church in all it teaches and believes. He has served it all his life.

    Is it for you Catholic church the only and unique path to live with God? (Not a rhetoric question)
