George Cardinal Pell calls the proposal to administer Communion to divorced & remarried Catholics a “stalking horse” to prepare the way for Church recognition of gay “marriage.” Apparently Lorenzo Cardinal Baldisseri has released draft summaries of his own making, and the attendees were incensed at the General Secretary of the Synod reshaping their statements and recommendations. Cardinal Baldisseri was ordained on June 29, 1963. By purest coincidence, I’m sure, June 29, 1963 happens to coincide with the date that Father Malachi Martin swore was the investment of Lucifer in the Vatican in The Keys of This Blood.
May I note how sketchy Catholic media coverage has been on the Synod? Following on Catholic radio, the Synod was proposed to explore measures on how to strengthen the family. Months before it was convened, one prominent organizer said Pope Francis was invited but had not for some months confirmed he would be present.
Then this pre-Synod Synod was reduced to three subjects: homosexual relations; divorced & remarrieds; and cohabiting couples. REALLY? THAT’S IT? THOSE ARE THE BIG PROBLEMS FOR “FAMILIES” IN THIS DAY AND AGE? WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. THE CORPORATE CULTURE IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS, FOR DECADES, BEEN “WOMEN AND CHILDREN LAST” AND THIS SYNOD, BY WHATEVER MEANS, HAS ATTEMPTED TO SET THIS IN STONE AND INVITE APOSTASY.
So what are your ideas, Catholicistas, on what problems families face and what help the Church can give?
