Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber of Bavaria describes his duties during a sermon, explaining that it's necessary to focus on what God wants rather than what pleases men.

Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber says:

"The bishop no longer would be the servant of God if he were to speak to please men or remain silent out of fear of men."

It is arguable that Cardinal Faulhaber stops being a servant of God early on during the Nazi era because there is little evidence that he ever speaks out regardless of what others might say and heedless of any personal consequences.
