There are some mandatory participants, such as the heads of Roman dicasteries and the bishops of the region concerned. The Pope – the

Liturgy According to the Promoters of the Pan-Amazon Synod: Communion with God or with (Evil) “Spirits”?

The Pan-Amazonian Ecclesial Network (REPAM), the main organizer of the coming Extraordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, promoted a seminar at the Missionary Cultural Center in Brasilia from July 16 to 18.

Cardinal Brandmüller is right: the Instrumentum laboris is heretic and calls to apostasy. Here is the proof.

In a wide-ranging interview with journalist Edward Pentin, Roman correspondent of the National Catholic Register, Cardinal Gerhard Müller commented that in the Instrumentum laboris for the next Special Synod for the Amazon “not all of the ideas accord with basic elements of Catholic theology, especially the conception of religion”.
