In view of the experience with previous synods under this papacy along with the documents released on the environment, marriage, and youth, it really isn't too hard to figure out what the Pan-Amazon synod is all about. Let me spell it out for you.
Pope Francis and his circle want to transform the Catholic faith by undermining her doctrine and changing the practice among the faithful to conform the Church to the world. Bishop Franz-Josef Overbeck let the cat out of the bag at a private preparatory meeting when he said post synod we will have reached "a point of no return" after which "nothing will be the same as it was."
Really? The Judases in the Church are nothing if not arrogant. These little tinpot gods, like Herod, believe they can destroy the King.
Let's look at a little history.
Wreckovation in the Church has been going on for decades. NO! Millennia! Actually, it started at Pentecost. After the birthday of the Church, the demolition demons gathered in full force. They spurred on the martyrdom of every pope up to the beginning of the 4th century. Many martyr popes are listed in the Roman Canon (First Eucharistic Prayer): Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, etc. But the Church went on. Not even the strongest tyrant can kill the Holy Spirit.
But they keep trying.
If killing off the popes couldn't kill the Church, maybe heresies could. They began with Pentecost as well. Remember Paul warning his followers not to listen to anyone preaching a different gospel? (Gal 1:8, 2 Cor 11:3-4) The predecessors of our modern heretics were busy-busy trying to mislead the flock from the beginning. Among the heresies, many of which still poison souls today, are Gnosticism (doctrine of salvation by knowledge), Manichaeism (Star Wars idea that there are two forces, one good and one evil duking it out), Arianism (denial of the divinity of Christ), Jansenism (denial of free will and belief that Christ died only for the elect), Donatism (validity of the sacraments depends on the moral character of the priest), Nestorianism (doctrine that there were two persons in Christ), Monophysitism (Christ had only one nature - divine), Pelagianism (denied original sin and Christian grace), all the way up to Modernism, the synthesis of all heresies.
|St. Athanasius and St. Cyril fought the heresies of their day.
There is nothing new in the fact that heretics are still among us. And it should shock no one that those initiating them often wear roman collars or pectoral crosses. It was thus from the beginning and many of the heresies were named after the clerics who promulgated them: Arius, Nestorius, Pelagius, Luther, etc.
And so we arrive at our own battle with heresy.
The document “burdens the Synod of Bishops, and finally the Pope, with a grave breach with the depositum fidei, which in its consequence means the self-destruction of the Church or the change of the Corpus Christi mysticum into a secular NGO with an ecological-social-psychological mandate....
the Instrumentum Laboris contradicts the binding teaching of the Church in decisive points and thus has to be qualified as heretical...
Inasmuch as even the fact of Divine Revelation is here being questioned, or misunderstood, one also now has to speak, additionally, of apostasy.The cardinal also pointed out that the synod focuses on a portion of the world that has half the population of Mexico City and is primarily concerned with the worldly affairs of Brazil. Now why would the Vatican target a tiny area of the world like that with almost no Catholics? My opinion? Because they can use it to promote their agenda on eco-worship and climate change, further religious indifferentism, and promote a married priesthood and women's ordination.
It seems we are reaching a tipping point in the Church. Will it end with the rejection of heretical positions and a renewal of the faith, or will it end in schism? Things can certainly not go on as they are.
All I can say is Catholics who love the faith better be storming heaven, especially seeking Mary's intercession. The Mother of the Church will lead us, "she that comes forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array?" With her as our general we cannot go wrong. Pray and fight!
