#ShortNews: Church crisis comes from abandoning God, adapting to culture

“The crisis in the Church is man-made and has arisen because we have cozily adapted ourselves to the spirit of a life without God,” said Cardinal Gerhard Mueller to the thousands of Catholics gathered in Phoenix for the 2020 Student Leadership Summit hosted by the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS).

He cautioned that even a number of people in the Church are “longing” for a kind of Catholicism without dogmas, without sacraments, and without an infallible magisterium.

“But the one who believes needs no ideology,” he said. “The one who hopes will not reach for drugs. The one who loves is not after the lust of this world, which passes along with the world. The one who loves God and his neighbor finds happiness in the sacrifice of self-giving.”
