Last Friday Catholic news sites around the world started picking up on a statement by German-speaking theologians that is calling for a “necessary new beginning” in the Catholic Church.
Additional theologians are still adding their names to the signers of the memorandum, which as of today has 208 names attached to it. I was happy to see both my brother Bernhard Emunds (who teaches social ethics at the Jesuit theological school in St. Georgen near Frankfurt),
and my old dogmatics professor Hans Jorissen (from the University of Bonn) among the signers.
