    In a Sept. 17 lecture in Rome, the German cardinal said the German path deviated from Vatican II especially in the area of “the sacramental understanding of the Church and the episcopate.”

    VATICAN CITY — Cardinal Walter Kasper has again expressed his concerns about the Synodal Path of the Church in Germany, this time lending his firm support to the counterproposal that a German bishop critical of the process presented earlier this month.

    In a lecture given in Rome on Sept. 17, Cardinal Kasper criticized the official text of one of the themes of the Synodal Path — on the exercise of power and authority in the Church — saying that it attempts to “reinvent the Church, so to speak, with the help of an erudite theological and theoretical framework.”

    There is “much that is correct in it,” he said, but added there is also “much that is hypothetical” and that “in the end, many wonder whether all this is still entirely Catholic.”

    “Some statements,” he went on, “clearly deviate from the basic concerns of Vatican II, for example, in the sacramental understanding of the Church and the episcopate.”
