The good Marx from Trier

As the German press had increasingly mentioned in the past few days, Pope Benedict XVI named today Reinhard Marx, Bishop of Trier, as the new Archbishop of Munich and Freising. The website of the Archdiocese of Munich all but reveals the name officially, by announcing that the Press Conference for the announcement will be held in Rome, Munich, and Trier...

Bishop Marx was first mentioned here in January 2006, in the episode of the permanent suspension of the "Super-Ecumenist" Father Gotthold Hasenhüttl, in that same month:

Father Gotthold Hasenhuttl released a letter dated Jan. 2 from Bishop Reinhard Marx of Trier, who said that Father Hasenhuttl's recent writings "have made it clear that you are not prepared to give way, that you consider your view to be correct and that you see no reason to bow to the ecclesia[s]tical discipline on the issue which led to your suspension."
An encouraging sign, indeed.

But He is not against the Tridentine Latin Mass.
He is also not extremely "ecumenically" inclined with Protestants.....which is a good thing.
The the radical liberal "We Are Church" movement hates him. So thaht alone is a very GOOD thing.
