Vatican City:

Cardinal Ludwig Muller
has denied claims that he intentionally avoided Pope Francis last Sunday.

“It is not true that I deliberately avoided going to greet Pope Francis at the end of last Sunday’s mass because of an argument ... these allegations are false,” Cardinal M
uller said at the end of a round table discussion on the theme “The hope of the family. The Synod and beyond”, which was held at the European University of Rome.
“The Pope only greeted a few people who were sitting in the front row. I was sitting further back and in any case, I had spoken to him face to face the day before, during a Synod break,” the cardinal told Vatican Insider before leaving the conference.
