The Synod of Great Ruptures

The “new civilization,” dreamed up by the organizers of the Amazon Synod, rejects the city, preferring the jungle; rejects politics, preferring ecology; rejects the law, preferring the primitive situation of indigenous tribes. Cardinal Walter Brandmüller has described the Synod’s working document as “heretical” and “apostate,” and it breaks with the traditional teaching of the Church

An Awkward Ally for the Synod’s Organisers

The old saying, “tell me who you are with and I will tell you who you are” has no absolute value for individuals, who may have legitimate reasons to relate to evil people (although that rarely happens). But it does absolutely apply to institutions and initiatives that promote a religious creed or a philosophical or

Will the Upcoming Synod be “Amazonian” or “Masonic”?

The secretive role of the “tucum ring” sect in its preparation After Belgian journalists, Jürgen Mettepenningen and Karim Schelkens revealed, in their biography of Belgian Cardinal Godfried Daneels, the existence of the “Sankt Gallen mafia” – which contributed greatly to the election of Pope Francis – ordinary Catholics became aware of the strength of pressure

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”.

It has a very European perspective,

“Ministries with an Amazonian Face”: An Eclipse of the Catholic Priesthood and the Hierarchical Character of the Church (3)

In the previous articles of this series, we showed how, during the post-conciliar crisis, the essential difference between the clergy and the laity was gradually blurred in the name of the ecclesiology of the People of God and of the recognition of new “lay ministries” in the official texts of the Church. From the European

“Ministries with an Amazonian Face”: An Eclipse of the Catholic Priesthood and the Hierarchical Character of the Church (2)

In the previous article we presented a summary vision of the triple munus – pastoral, magisterial and priestly – that Our Lord Jesus Christ entrusted to the Church through the ministerial priesthood of the clergy, transmitted by the laying on of hands in ordination. We also saw how the sacrament of Holy Orders is the

Christ established Peter and as Prince of the Apostles

The Working Document of the coming special Synod on the Amazon[1]  has set a time bomb. It states that “the Church is to be incarnated in Amazonian cultures that have a high sense of community, equality and solidarity, so clericalism is not accepted in its various forms of manifestation.” It adds that the Amazonian tribes
