The unity of the Catholic Church rises or falls to the degree that its members uncompromisingly hold firm to the faith transmitted by the apostles, said Archbishop Gerhard Muller, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

The congregation helps the pope “promote and safeguard the faith of the simple and, at the same time, strengthen the visible unity of the Church,” he said.

“These two tasks are inseparably linked; they hold, stand or fall together.”

Muller spoke about the work of the congregation at a Mass with congregation staff members April 30.
