The Synod on the Family: We are at War

The Rigging of the Vatican Synod?

 

This is an interim report. It will be updated in a few days with more information on the “war”.

For those Catholics who are yet unaware of it, we are at war with an enemy who is within the Church.

They are those who want to see revolutionary changes wrought in the Church’s 2000-year old traditional teachings on sexual morality, on matters of life and the family, which are based on Divine Revelation.

The protagonists of these changes are progressivist, liberal and dissident lay leaders of so-called Catholic organizations, some feminist religious who are advocates of gay sex “rights”, Holy Communion for the divorced and civilly remarried (while still being legally married) and thus living in sin, the ordination of women to the priesthood, etc. (These, by the way, are non-negotiable issues).

Some of their representatives and sympathizers are bishops, high-ranking delegates to the upcoming October 4-25, 2015, Ordinary Synod on the Family in Rome.

Some of them are Cardinals who head Bishops’ Conferences/hold high offices at the Vatican.

The war has been raging ever since the Extraordinary Synod of October 5 to 19, 2014 was first announced. The first open confrontations (earlier it had been conducted on the social and print media) between the two camps took place during the 2014 Synod. That battle was, Providentially, won by the conservatives who have always rejected the proposed/sought changes.

Conservative Catholic media apostolates covering the Synod on an hourly basis reported that Pope Francis appeared to lend his weight to the liberal camp led by the infamous Cardinal Walter Kasper of Germany, President Emeritus of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, and formerly an associate of the dissident Swiss priest Hans Küng, who in 1979 was stripped by Vatican authorities of his licence to teach (but not of his cassock) owing to his critical views on contraception and papal infallibility.

The German and Swiss Bishops’ Conferences and the Catholics of those nations are largely with them.

According to Wikipedia: During the Third Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in 2014, Cardinal Kasper told reporters that since African, Asian, and Middle Eastern countries have a “taboo” against homosexuality, “they should not tell us too much what we have to do.” Once the story broke, he denied that he made any such comment. The reporter who wrote the story, Edward Pentin, subsequently produced a recording of the conversation, which verified that the Cardinal had made those statements. Cardinal Raymond Burke called Kasper’s remarks “profoundly sad and scandalous”. Kasper subsequently confirmed that he had had the conversation, and {defended it}.

 

The Chairman of the German Bishops’ Conference, Cardinal Reinhard Marx, is another infamous liberal who defends gay rights and believes that “Church doctrine can change over time” as he stated at the Synod.

The two opposing camps have ceaselessly lobbied on the Internet as well as in Rome in the last 11 months (since the first round of the Synod came to a merciful end) in a no-holds-barred battle.

In the vanguard of the conservative wing and one of its two most prominent voices at the Synod was United States Cardinal Raymond Burke. Consequently, some Catholic analysts see a plot in his being divested of his position as Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura in November 2014 immediately following the Synod, and being ‘honorarily’ assigned as patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

 

 

 

The other was Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine for the Faith. Cardinals Burke and Müller were supported by the interventions of Australian Cardinal George Pell and others, including almost all the prelates from the continent of Africa, which helped “save the day” for the Church of Rome.

On May 26, 2015, Edward Pentin reported that Cardinal Müller criticised a “shadow council” of bishops and experts from Germany, France and Switzerland who met May 25th in Rome “to discuss how the Church could adapt its pastoral approach to today’s current lived experiences, especially regarding sexual ethics”.
