The doors that the Synod of Synodality has opened.
The wars that are escalating in the world, and the confusion that reigns in the Church, are clear indicators that God is already in the process of purification.
He is letting sin consume itself, because evil ends up engulfing wherever it enters and in the end it engulfs itself.
And Our Lord Himself has said that He has allowed the tempter to enter the Synod of Synodality.
Here we will talk about how we know that the tempter entered the Synod, what consequences it has for the Church, what things he is tempting, and what the result will be for the Church, of the temptation that the tempter introduced.
Pope Francis is not the tempter, he is the Holy See of the Catholic Church, but the tempter, the smoke of Satan has entered the Vatican in very diabolical ways.
And on several occasions he has asked for a review of Catholic teaching on some points that doctrine and biblical teaching consider sin, related to topics such as human sexuality, divorce, etc.
“I see that young people do not even consider the gospel when they have the impression that we are discriminatory.”
And he has also said that “preaching the gospel today means proclaiming the joy of living in God, it means living well, enjoying life.
“We are called to share good news, not a set of rules or prohibitions.”
Therefore he says that the criterion must be that “No one is excluded. The Kingdom of God is not an exclusive club. “It opens its doors to everyone, without discrimination.”
And that “the Church has always adapted to the times, only today we must be faster, because the change in civilization that we are witnessing is the greatest change since the invention of the wheel.”
Cardinal Hollerich may remember the same thing being said in the 1960s.
At that time it seemed that times were definitely changing.
The men wore bell-bottoms, necklaces and printed shirts and the women wore miniskirts.
The Civil Rights movement was changing the way we thought about race.
The Beatles were in fashion.
And the students had taken power in the universities.
The sexual revolution was in full swing.
And new types of sexually transmitted diseases were discovered almost monthly.
Movies like Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice and The Graduate were shown in movie theaters.
While nuns and priests left the Church en masse in search of personal fulfillment.
Then, as now, many in the Catholic Church called for changes that would allow the Church to adapt to changing times.
The Second Vatican Council made many reforms.
The Latin Mass was replaced by the vernacular Mass, Gregorian chant was replaced by popular music, religious studies texts were rewritten to reflect the latest theories in psychology and sociology.
While the priests winked at contraception and activity outside of marriage.
And in general, the clergy adopted a much more relaxed attitude toward sins of the flesh.
Over the years there were many other changes aimed at helping people feel more welcome in the Catholic Church by lowering the visibility of what was sin.
However, this more inclusive and permissive Church failed to attract the expected number of new faithful.
On the contrary, as the Church became more like the world, the world became less interested in the Church , not more.
When homilies began to sound like newspaper editorials, more and more people chose to stay home on Sunday mornings and read the newspapers.
Sunday Mass attendance in the United States decreased from 47% in 1965 to 27% in 2022.
In Europe from 75% in 1970 to 45% in 2022.
And in Latin America from 80% in 1970 to 55% in 2022.
However, Cardinal Hollerich believes that it is worth trying once again this failed formula, which even emptied the seminaries.
He wants the Church to base its moral teaching on a foundation as unstable as fashion , because in reality it must assume that there are no eternal truths for all ages.
It assumes that if certain sinful behaviors have become more socially acceptable, then it is time for the Church to adapt to the times.
But should doctrines of good and evil be determined by changes in fashions?
Do we want fashion to be the arbiter of morality?
Because according to the Scriptures, the current fashion in Sodom and Gomorrah did not please God.
Of course, the usual suspects applaud Cardinal Hollerich’s enlightenment and bravery.
But today it doesn’t take much courage to take that stance, rather it reveals the absence of it.
Because adopting a relaxed attitude towards all forms of human sexuality has become as fashionable among external enemies of the Church as among progressive Catholics.
Modernity is a temptation not only for parishioners, but for society as a whole.
But Jesus told his disciples “temptations will surely come to sin; but woe to him from whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and thrown into the sea than for one of these little ones to sin,” Luke 17.
He was referring to the wolves in sheep’s clothing who lead others astray, in the name of the Church, deliberately obscuring or directly contradicting the will of God.
And on September 25, 2023, a few days before the beginning of the discussions of the 2023 Synod Assembly, Our Lord spoke to the priests through the renowned German visionary Manuela Strack, about the tempter in the Synod, he said ,
“Dear priests. If your hearts are open to Me, then I will protect you from all tribulations and guide you through this time.
Do not be afraid! I am the Lord! Pray especially for the Synod! The tempter will appear in him. I am allowing this.
People of God, are you worthy of Me?
Little flock, be witnesses!
Despite all that will come now, which I must allow, do not be afraid!
Although thieves have broken into My sanctuary, I am with you!
They will not be able to destroy My Holy Church. Amen”.
Already in 1976 the Lord complained to Father Ottavio Michelini that priests and bishops were not sufficiently convinced of the terrible consequences of original sin.
And he told him, “ sin is a very serious disorder, provoking and generating other disorders in a chain, in the world of spirit, grace and nature.”
The Synod of Synodality has brought the tempter into the deliberation of the Church.
Who has been able to put a megaphone in the hands of those who want to modify what is sin and what is not , in the doctrine of the Church, to adapt it to the fashions of the world.
And it is trying to deconstruct the hierarchical doctrinal unity of the Church, leading the head of the Church to renounce being the guardian of doctrine, delegating the responsibility of defining what is sin and what is not, to the conscience of each bishop. and priest.
Of course, as long as they are progressive.
These two are the fundamental changes that the Synod of Synodality is already achieving.
Well, here we wanted to talk about the temptation that entered the Synod of Synodality and the two consequences that it has already had for the Church.
And I would like to ask you if you consider that the tempter has achieved other things within the Synod and what they have been.
