Leading Modernist Big Gun
“Cardinal” Lehmann Hospitalized after Stroke
Yesterday, Oct. 19, the German diocese of Mainz announced that its long-time former “bishop”, “Cardinal” Karl Lehmann, suffered a stroke in late September and has been in the hospital since. He is reportedly in stable condition and now focusing on rehab, according to a news report found at katholisch.de, the official web site of the German branch of the Vatican II Sect.
Ordained a priest in 1963 (see a photo of his first Mass here), Lehmann was a student of the notorious Modernist Karl Rahner, one of the chief movers and shakers at the Second Vatican Council. Lehmann has had enormous influence in the shaping of the Modernist Sect in Germany. In 1983, he was appointed “bishop” of Mainz by “Pope” John Paul II, a post he held until his retirement in 2016. He was the president of the National Conference of German Novus Ordo Bishops from 1987 to 2008. In 2001, John Paul II raised him to the status of “cardinal” so that his anti-Catholic theology would be able to do even greater damage.
Lehmann is the theological mentor of “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, so the latter’s heresies are not surprising. Earlier this year, the Mainz diocese solemnly installed Lehmann’s pseudo-episcopal successor, a certain Mr. Peter Kohlgraf, who wasted no time in calling for a change to the notion of sin:
- “Bishop” Peter Kohlgraf: “We need to work on our View of Sin” (Aug. 31, 2017)
Thus Kohlgraf has already shown himself a worthy heir to the Modernist legacy of “Cardinal” Lehmann.
Stroke or not, at 81 years of age, it is clear that Lehmann’s life is gradually coming to an end. Pray for the man’s conversion because he has a lot to answer for.
