For some years now I’ve been hearing about rebellious German bishops.

It’s not the first time that an Apostle betrays Jesus, nor will it be the last. The smoke of satan was amongst the first bishops ordained at the Last Supper, and it will continue amongst them until the end of time. But Peter and his successors have a divine guarantee against diabolic contagion. They must cut off the rotten limbs before the gangrene spreads.
