Vatican City, 13 January 2020 Your Eminence, Your Grace, Your Excellency: The Holy Father is preparing a new Apostolic Exhortation to present the New Paths for the Church and for an Integral Ecology as developed with the guidance of the Holy Spirit during the Synod on the Amazon in October last year.

    From Words to Deeds. The Six Points On Which the Post-Synodal Exhortation Is Already Written With the synod for the Amazon filed away, the anticipation is now over what Pope Francis will decide, on the basis of the votes delivered to him in the final document.To judge by the improvised speech in Spanish that Jorge Mario Bergoglio gave in the synod hall at the end of the sessions, on the afternoon of Saturday October 26, his decisions will not take long. And in essence they are already written.To identify them it is enough to go over step by step this...

    [Catholic Caucus] Amazon Synod’s architect reveals how Pope Francis could ‘open a door’ to women’s ordination October 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Erwin Kräutler, the bishop emeritus of the Diocese of Xingu, Brazil, revealed in a new book that, in his diocese, women are not only presiding over Liturgies of the Word, but are also giving homilies, a practice contrary to Catholic liturgical rules.  In August of this year, the Austrian bishop published a new book dedicated to the Amazon Synod and its outcome. The title of the book is Renewal Now. Impulses from the Amazon for the Reform of...

    [Barf Alert] Amazon Synod Proposes New Episcopal Body to Implement Pope’s Decrees Synod fathers reject 'intra-Christian colonialism,' calling for 'deep ecological conversion' VATICAN (ChurchMilitant.com) - Amazon Synod delegates are calling for the urgent creation of a permanent and representative episcopal organization to promote synodality in the Amazon. The group is meant to concretize and implement the directives issued by Pope Francis after the synod. The new body will work for the defense of the rights of indigenous peoples, the integral formation of pastoral agents and the creation of Amazonian seminaries — a plan proposed by 180 synod fathers Tuesday morning at the 11th general...

    [Catholic Caucus] Who Is in the Pan-Amazon Synod’s Small Working Groups? In previous synods during the pontificate of Pope Francis, these working groups have been an instrument for advancing contentious agendas. VATICAN CITY — If previous synods can be taken as a guide for future ones, the circoli minori (small working groups), rather than the general congregations, can be where agendas pursued by a minority can be introduced into the synod proceedings. The German-language group was a particular focus in this regard, both during the 2014 and 2015 synods on the family and at the synod on youth last year....

    Vatican cardinal surprised when asked at synod press conference about Amazonian infanticide VATICAN CITY, October 8, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― A Peruvian cardinal reacted forcefully when a journalist raised the question of infanticide among aboriginal peoples in the Amazon region.  Cardinal Pedro Ricardo Barreto Jimeno, S.J., Archbishop of Huancayo, said that the journalist’s claim that around 20 communities of Amazonian indigenous people still put babies to death surprised him.  “I have [just] heard that at this moment that there are Amazonian peoples practicing infanticide,” Barreto said.  “This cannot be affirmed so easily because it indicates a situation of savagery. I...

    Amazonic Notes #2: It's all decided on married priests Obviously. And this is why this whole expensive charade was assembled. Today, one of the main architects of the German-Austrian Synod on the Amazon region, Erwin Krautler, who was a bishop in the area for many years (years during which the majority of the population, tired of a political church, became Evangelical), said in the press conference following the session that there is “no other option” but to ordain married men as priests in the Amazon, because being unmarried is a "foreign concept" to the indigenous communities. As liberal journalist...

    Francis, cardinals urge Amazon synod to consider new ideas, including married priests Vatican City — Openness to new ways of thinking emerged as the primary theme of the Vatican's Synod of Bishops for the Amazon region on its first day of business, with Pope Francis and the cardinals leading the three-week event telling the participating prelates not to be resistant to new ideas. Clearly enunciated among those new ideas: the possibility of ordaining married men to address the severe lack of Catholic ministers across the nine-nation region, and finding a way for the church to offer women there some kind...

    The Pope’s Pitiful Reign of Error The upcoming Pan-Amazon Synod is shaping up to be a disaster of historic proportions I picked up a copy of L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper which reads less like a Catholic periodical than a back issue of the Nation. The sheer BS and left-wing propaganda of its contents are stunning: “Climate Change is a Challenge for Society as a Whole” (that was its front-pager); “The Theology of the Noun” (called the “Holy Father’s extemporaneous discourse,” which is too impenetrably flaky to even summarize); “The Green Alphabet of Pope Francis”; “Protect Forests to Ensure...

    [Catholic Caucus] Guest Op-Ed: When bishops knew how to respond to a pope suspected of heresy In his recent letter to the College of Cardinals Cardinal Brandmüller wrote that all cardinals must consider how they will react to ‘any heretical statements or decisions of the [Amazonian] synod.’ In the past, it wouldn’t have been necessary to ask this question because the bishops of the Western Church had a reputation for robustly reacting against heresy.  A case in point is how the bishops reacted to the mere suspicion that Pope Vigilius (537-555 AD) was sympathetic towards the Monophysite heresy that sought...

Adelson Araujo dos Santos. Dos Santos is doing damage control after multiple clergy blasted the Amazon Synod's working document as representing a break from Church teaching. German Cdl. Walter Brandmueller ripped it as being heretical for pushing women's ordination and gender ideology. From the document: "Identify the type of official ministry...

The Oct. 1 statement (see below), issued by a group which calls itself the Coetus Internationalis Patrum Working Group (International Group of Fathers), states:  We, numerous bishops, priests,...
