However, official church regulations on doctrine, law and practice leave little room for manoeuvre in many respects. Moreover, in Catholic mentalities, innovation...

    [Catholic Caucus] More Absurdities: Ex-Synod Will Invent "Non-Sacramental" Deaconesses Just Like the "Non-Liturgical" BlessingsLaNuovaBq.it (16 March) reports that the script for Francis' ex-synod on the smokescreen of "synodality" is already written. The main points.- Francis' synodal study groups will report to the plenary of the ex-synod in October and continue their work thereafter until June 2025, making the ex-synod a kind of "permanent process" [or, in Marxist terms: permanent revolution].- Synodality as a supposed "walking together" gives priority to "walking", that is, to doing rather than thinking [which is the Marxist principle of practice before theory, leading to blind doing...

    The Synodal Church’s Mission of Unifying Around the Lowest Common Denominator to Serve the GlobalistsWe can see the refined contours of the Synodal Church through four themes considered in the new Synodal document: the need to adapt to the modern world and globalist objectives; proclaiming Christianity of the lowest common denominator; unity in diversity of religious beliefs; and a new relationship with the Bishop of Rome.On March 14, 2024, the General Secretariat of the Synod released a new document with its reflections on “How to be a synodal Church on mission,” adding further evidence that the “Synodal Church” is not...

    Following the UnfaithfulIn an effort to be more "welcoming," many Church leaders are looking to fallen-away Catholics to lead the way.A well-known tactic in political circles is to release a “survey” that supports a predetermined conclusion. For example, a Republican PAC might send out a survey to its base asking “Do you think Joe Biden is right about the 2nd amendment?” Or the Democrats might ask if Trump is the next Hitler. Then the results will be touted as proof of massive support for the forgone conclusion. This doesn’t just happen in political circles, though, as is clear from a...

    [Catholic Caucus] Did Pope Francis Rebuke the German Synodal Way? German Catholic ResponseThe reader may have already heard of the events that have been prominent news in German Catholic media lately. Apparently the main takeaway in the Anglophone world was: “Pope Francis Rebukes the Synodal Way!” However, that news is more ambivalent than suggested at first sight.German Catholics have been suffering under the so-called synodal way for a while. Officially the project was meant to deal with the sexual abuse scandal, which it did only ever so sparsely. Mostly, the fora dealt with the common topics of “reform debates.” We...

    [Catholic Caucus] BREAKING: Papal biographer confirms Pope Francis will remove Cardinal Burke’s flat, salaryMainstream media and heterodox Catholic outlets have consistently vilified Cardinal Burke, due to his pronouncement of Catholic teaching which is often placed in juxtaposition with the statements of Pope Francis.Pope Francis’ favored biographer, Austen Ivereigh, has stated the Pope personally confirmed the reports that he intends to strip Raymond Cardinal Burke of his flat and salary, though denied calling the cardinal his “enemy.”In a report published November 29 on the heterodox site Where Peter Is, Ivereigh wrote that he had met with the Argentine pontiff on Monday,...

    [Catholic Caucus] Pope’s warning about German ‘Synodal Council’ has nothing to do with sexual morals, correcting heresyThe pope’s criticism has nothing to do with the Synodal Way’s attack on Catholic moral teaching, but rather with undermining the authority of the bishops via the 'Synodal Council' the German bishops are trying to set up. Pope Francis has expressed his “concern” that the Church in Germany is moving away from the Universal Church, but he failed once again to correct the Synodal Way’s heretical teachings on sexuality. The German Newspaper WELT published a letter written by Pope Francis addressed to four women,...

    [Catholic Caucus] Edward Pentin Exposes the Synod on SynodalityEdward Pentin is one of the most important Vatican journalists of the Francis era. He is the author of the book The Rigging of a (2014) Vatican Synod?: An Investigation of Alleged Manipulation at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family. That book exposed the underhanded efforts to sideline traditionalists and conservatives at the 2014 Synod on the Family. Last week, in his speech to the Arlington Latin Mass Society, Mr. Pentin gave an impeccably-sourced, inside account of the manipulations in the first session of the Synod on Synodality last month. His speech...

Because his religion will be the brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Church,...

The Synod on Synodality concluded its first month-long session at the end of October, with participants set to return to the Vatican...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Lies of SynodalityTwo recent news stories expose the lies that make up “synodality,” that vaunted effort of Church leaders that has been called the “modus vivendi et operandi of the Church.” Before we get to the lies, let’s first review what the Vatican claims “synodality” is: Synodality denotes the particular style that qualifies the life and mission of the Church, expressing her nature as the People of God journeying together and gathering in assembly, summoned by the Lord Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit to proclaim the Gospel. Synodality ought to be expressed in the...
