LifeSiteNews published an article by Phil Lawler regarding the obvious attempt to rig the sin-nod, an attempt that many of us have noticed.. I urge you to read it. Note two things:
- Much of this strong-arming is being done by Cardinal Baldiserri, secretary of the synod. Recall that there is a reason that I dubbed him "Book-Thief Baldi". Hold that thought as you ponder this revelation: that of homosexual propaganda being distributed at the sin-nod with authorization of higher-ups. (ht - Toronto Catholic Witness) This is confirmed by Archbishop Gadecki. So the sin-nod honchos (Baldiserri included) resort to theft to prevent circulation of Remaining In The Truth of Christ, a book authored by several prelates that champions the teaching of Jesus Christ, but they allow distribution of tripe that justifies homosexual conduct. Those engaging in such distribution find themselves in the unenviable position of cooperating with mortal sin and that is its own mortal sin, by the way.
- In Lawler's last paragraph, we read, "The Pope ultimately controls the process. The Pope will ultimately control the product." True enough; he does. But considering what was revealed about the "shadow synod", along with all the other little meetings that have been occurring at the Vatican, might this rigging be part and parcel of an attempt to insinuate the proceeds of the "shadow synod" into Church life? The procedural changes that Lawler noted would make it difficult for faithful prelates to discern whether or not any final documents were truly representative of their deliberations.
I'm going to venture a guess and I think it's one shared by many. The so-called "synod reports" are already drafted, and they will "change pastoral practice" to allow for the admittance to Holy Communion those living in de facto adultery AND to "mainstream" sodomite shack-up situations into Church society. This sin-nod will only serve to lend an aura of legitimacy to the de facto heresy that probably has already been concocted by this "shadow synod", to be foisted on unsuspecting Catholics. Could that be why Cardinal Reinhard Marx appears to be a bundle of joy and giggles now (as reported by One Peter Five, despite past hints of going into schism? If that is the case - and I hope and pray that I'm incorrect - the Pope will fully own such a travesty.
In light of my hypothesis, other news makes sense as we consider the strategy of progressives to normalize homosexuality within the Church. Voice of the Family has informed us that gay-coddling Cardinal Vincent Nichols will be moderating one of the English-speaking small groups at the sin-nod. Of course he will have much discretion as to what is included in the report for that group. We also hear from Church Militant that a priest in the diocese of Oakland CA gave a homily at Mass telling his parishioners that "being gay is not sinful". To make matters even more scandalous, the homily was published in the official diocesan newspaper. Clearly these events are part of the #maturation process to brainwash us to submit to the gay agenda.
Let us continue to pray and to shine the light of truth on cockroaches.
