BRISBANE Catholics have a rare opportunity to hear one of the Church’s foremost theologians speak on July 21.
Cardinal Gerhard Müller will deliver a public lecture entitled “Blessed John Henry Newman and an unchangeable deposit of faith”.
Cardinal Müller served as the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from his appointment by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012 until 2017.
Pope Francis did not renew his term, however the 70-year-old cardinal remains a member of a number of Vatican congregations and councils.
In 2006 Pope Benedict XVI entrusted the then-Bishop Müller the task of editing the original German edition of Joseph Ratzinger: The Complete Works.
Cardinal Müller has written more than 400 works on dogmatic theology, ecumenism, revelation, hermeneutics, the presbyterate and the diaconate.
He will speak in Brisbane, before travelling to Grose Vale in New South Wales to deliver the keynote speech at the Australian Confraternity of Catholic Clergy Conference.
Cardinal Müller will speak at Marymac Community Hall, 616 Ipswich Rd, Annerley, on Saturday, July 21, starting at 7pm.
Admission is free, and there will be an opportunity for donations after the lecture.
