With the new Bishop of Chur, the controversial elite organization of the Catholic Church has come to the fore again. But in the diocese it remains surprisingly quiet. Have the archconservatives moderated?
The door opens, Pastor Beat Müller looks out. Side parting, priest collar, stuck tighterader body. The reputation precedes him: This immaculately dressed man is supposed to wear the bus belt around his thigh for two hours a day, this ones Band mixed with sharp thorns. Even now? The man nothing can be seen.
Müller has invited, he is the information officer of Opus Dei, in German Work of god. A very conservative elite organization of the Catholic Church that was almost forgotten – until Joseph Maria Bonnemain was appointed Bishop of Chur this week. A man of Opus Dei.
