Such a premise of the Synodal Church seems to call into question the doctrinal veracity of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the legitimacy of the 1984 Code of Canon Law.
Even before the removal of Bishop Strickland, some have raised concerns as to why Church leaders have de facto abrogated the teaching on immigration in CCC # 2241,by insisting that the right to migrate is so absolute and that our nation is obliged not only to have open borders, but also to indefinitely provide a whole range of welfare benefits (e.g., food, housing, medical care, education, debit cards, etc.) to anyone entering our nation illegally.
As an aside, one man asked a question. If the right to migrate geographically, without respect for the laws of the nation into which one is migrating, is absolute, is there not also a corresponding absolute right to migrate spiritually into the Catholic Church on one's own terms without respect for the disciplines of the RCIA process and canon law? In other words, is Pope Francis now authorizing us, or the sake of promoting more inclusion, to offer Holy Communion even to those living in sin and even to non-Christians, who experience a "felt need" for the sacrament?
I have listened to Bishop Strickland and read some of his very clear teachings regarding our Catholic Faith and her disciplines, and have found them to be both spiritually edifying and therapeutically challenging. But pastorally, with numerous ambiguous teachings coming from Pope Francis, it has become very difficult to decisively proclaim the Faith. I must merely propose Church teachings and concede that "the supremacy of conscience" may indeed allow for the ratification of the various rationalizations of sin-seared consciences. Admonishing the sinner, which used to be a spiritual work of mercy, apparently is now to be viewed as a sin against the virtue of inclusion.
Sadly, it seems that synodality is being tweaked so as to allow the Roman Catholic Church to be morphed into merely a sacramentally enhanced version of the Unitarian Universalist Church.
I just thought I should let you know as Episcopal Vicar for our region how people are viewing the removal of Bishop Strickland from his diocese.
Fraternally in Christ,
