The Synod Gang Prepares Another Mugging of the Church 

Phony Synod III Update:
Let’s ask “young people” what Jesus wants!

Cardinal Lorenzo (“the book thief”) Baldisseri

There was never any doubt, of course, that the next Phony Synod, entitled “Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment,” would be another attack on Catholic moral teaching. Phony Synod 2018 will follow up on the last Phony Synod’s carefully stage-managed dog-and-pony show concealing a preconceived intent to accommodate divorce and “remarriage” in the Church, overthrowing in practice the Church’s bimillenial prohibition on Holy Communion for public adulterers living in “second marriages.”

Phony Synod 2018 will be headed by Cardinal Lorenzo (“the book thief”) Baldisseri, whose brute manipulation of the proceedings of the “Synod on the Family” (including the confiscation of the “Five Cardinals Book” defending the Church’s traditional teaching on marriage) sparked an open rebellion led by Cardinal Pell.  (In the end, however, Pope Francis obtained the result he wanted from the beginning by publishing Amoris Laetitia.)

A mere two sentences from the preparatory document for Phony Synod 2018 suffice to warn us that the Church is in for another mugging:

“As in the days of Samuel (cf. 1 Sam 3:1-21) and Jeremiah (cf. Jer 1:4-10), young people know how to discern the signs of our times, indicated by the Spirit. Listening to their aspirations, the Church can glimpse the world which lies ahead and the paths the Church is called to follow. (Intro)”

Yes, that’s right, Baldisseri and the gang are going to “listen to young people” instruct their elders on what the Church should do. At least that is the cover story.  In truth, however, they are going to pretend to “listen to young people” while preparing to execute the plan they have no doubt already put in place for the next compromise of Catholic teaching.  And they certainly will not be listening to the young people who are flocking to traditional Latin Masses and seeking the authentic faith of their fathers.  These young people, Francis declares, are “rigid” and have some sort of emotional disorder for which one must “dig, dig” in order to understand what these rigid youths are “hiding.”

Phony Synod 2018 is employing the previous modus operandi of a tendentious online “preparatory questionnaire,” answered by any Tom, Dick or Harry that logs in. This fake survey is being used to inform us that “young people” want changes, big changes, in the Church.  As the Spanish website Religion Digital reports:

“Many of the young faithful still see the Church as a ‘place of prohibitions.’ That is one of conclusions of a first sieve of the responses to the preparatory questionnaire for the 2018 Synod of Bishops on ‘young people, faith and vocational discernment,’ according to its general secretary, Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri.”

Baldisseri is quoted as follows: “We need to look at young people not only to help us understand how to proclaim the Gospel, but also to have a better understanding of what Jesus demands of his Church, what he expects of it, what must be excised[extirpated, removed] for such a mission.”

So, according to The Book Thief, the anonymous “young people” (do we really know how old they are?) who completed an online survey don’t like all those “prohibitions” in the Church, and they are telling us what Jesus wants done — especially what “he” wants the Church to get rid of.

Here we go again, as the apostasy in the Church reaches its culmination in a final confrontation with the devil over marriage and family, just as Sister Lucia warned the late Cardinal Caffarra in light of the Third Secret of Fatima.

And yet there is hope in this development:  at this very moment in Church history, the devil is overreaching, thereby provoking a growing reaction among the faithful who see the ongoing synodal fraud for what it is. And the Virgin, Sister Lucia reminded us, has already crushed the serpent’s head.  All events are aligning for the final Triumph of the Immaculate Heart that will follow upon the Consecration of Russia, though that may have to come amidst very dramatic events for the Church and all of humanity.

  1. Disappointing response to Vatican’s unprecedented youth survey

    The online questionnaire in preparation for the Synod of Bishops’ assembly on young people in October 2018 has received fewer responses than expected.

    More than 4 months ago the Vatican posted an online international poll for people 16-29 years of age. It was part of preparations for the Synod of Bishops’ ordinary assembly, which is focusing on “Young people, faith and vocational discernment” and is to take place in Rome in October 2018.The direct consultation was unprecedented for the Vatican. It was meant to take place in parallel with the contributions from bishops’ conferences from each country around the world.The survey was posted online on June 14 and was designed to be open to all young people irrespective of religion or geographic origin.But a month after the survey closed, the Synod’s secretary-general, Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, has revealed some interesting statistics.While a total of 148,247 people visited the survey site, less than half of this number — a little more than 65,000 — actually answered all the questions.However, some 3,000 respondents left their email addresses and said they wished to be kept informed of the survey’s outcome.The Vatican’s daily newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, reported the figures in its October 25th edition. Cardinal Baldisseri had already unveiled them last week at a conference for Italian religious publishers in the Northern Italy city of Pordenone.The figures are quite low for a worldwide survey, particularly if compared to the 2.5 million people who participated in the most recent World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland during the summer of 2016.Observers who have closely followed the Synod assembly’s preparation have noted that communications were not very effective in some countries. The language barrier was a problem. For instance, the survey was not translated into German.As a result, the German bishops made their own translation and distributed it locally. But the responses from young Germans are not included in the figures given by Cardinal Baldisseri’s office.During his address in Pordenone the cardinal also presented a summary of comments young people made on the survey itself. He cited several testimonies from French young people who expressed satisfaction with the way the survey was carried out.On the other hand, he also noted various criticisms of the survey. For example, some respondents felt the questionnaire was too long, while others felt a number of important issues were hardly addressed or not tackled at all.These include problems linked to alcohol, drug and medicine consumption; sexuality and relationship issues; or even links with other religions.Young people who attended a September seminar the Vatican held in preparation for the synod had already expressed some of these same concerns. Cardinal Baldisseri insisted last week that the contribution of young people “is essential for the conclusions to correspond to the reality of the Church and society”.He warned that without this “there is a risk of building ‘castles in the air’, which will remain uninhabited because young people do not identify with them”.Now the questionnaire will remain online until November 30. Responses will be used to help draft the Synod’s Instrumentum Laboris (or the working document for the assembly on youth), which is expected to be published in the summer of 2018.
