Cardinal Meisner questioned whether Archbishop Ender, having been in Germany a mere six months, was adequately informed to "issue such a broad pronouncement." He went on to observe that he saw no reason to fear a flood of complaints on the issue of liturgical abuse, but reminded everyone that Redemptionis sacramentum clearly upholds the right of the faithful to make complaints if they encounter liturgical abuse.
Jumping into the fray, Cardinal Friedrich Wetter of Munich insisted that any complaints should be made to the offending priest, and the bishop should be involved only if the priest is unresponsive (Cath. World Report, July, 2004).
