San Diego Bishop McElroy: “As culture changes, we must adapt”

Delegates to Bishop McElroy’s diocesan synod told to think outside the box

[Does that mean “blessing” same-sex “marriages” – as has been proposed (and is being done) in some dioceses in Europe?]

OCTOBER 19, 2016

Bishop McElroy of San Diego is holding a Diocesan Synod on October 29 and 30 in response to Pope Francis’ document Amoris Laetitia (See September 29 CalCatholic article, San Diego Synod delegates told to ‘think big’) The following comes from a post on the Diocese of San Diego website:

On Aug. 20, delegates met at the Pastoral Center. Their topic was to explore the challenges marriages face today and to propose ways the diocese can support them.

The day began with enthronement of the Book of the Gospels. Bernadeane Carr, STL, director of the Diocesan Institute, served as the theologian for the day. She reflected on Psalm 128:1-6, along with quotes from Pope Francis.

Fr. John Hurley, CSP, the synod’s coordinator, led the day, along with Deacon Ralph and Peggy Skiano from the Diocesan Marriage and Family Life Office. They encouraged the delegates to think “outside the box” to develop proposals that were relevant, achievable and measurable.

Bishop McElroy joined the group before lunch and at the end of the day.
“Marriage is foundational and must be transformational. As culture changes, we must adapt so that the beauty of marriage can be transformational in the context of our culture,” he told the group.

  1. They might as well have conducted their superfluous li’l coffee klatch in Martian, for all the good it is doomed NOT to do.

    This is yet another glittering example of feminism /socialism / secularism / “Bergoglionic bubblespeak” (the Argentine version of ebonics) and outright spiritual depravity dressed up as one more “Newchurch” exercise in dynamic witlessness.

    Except, of course, the climate and scenery are pretty terrific.
