Synod on Synodality: Agenda…Undermine the Catholic Faith, “Update” it – Bishop Schneider

Synod on Synodality: Agenda…Undermine the Catholic Faith, “Update” it – Bishop Schneider

Editor writes…

Much is made by the modernists of the need to listen to the Holy Spirit speaking to “us” in the Synod, but what they mean by “us” is actually them. The wreckers. They give a whole new meaning to “us and them”.  Think about it; only 1% of Catholics are represented in the diocesan returns to the Vatican following their meetings with “the faithful” – more accurately described as “the faithless” if their responses to the Synod questionnaires have been authentically reported.  In short, the Synod enthusiasts want the Church’s teaching to be put into cold storage and they, to whom the Holy Spirit is communicating directly, will sit down with their pens and papers and start again.

In his interview with Cardinal Müller at the beginning of October, Raymond Arroyo asks about these responses and who, exactly, is driving this mania for change in the Church.  The Cardinal replies that it is those who think they’re more intelligent than God who are running the show. Well said.  Click here to watch that interview.

Teachers and priests have had this “We must listen to the Holy Spirit in order to shape the Church the way God really wants it”, nonsense rammed down their throats for years, so it’s little wonder that precious little true doctrine has been passed on in schools and pulpits. To be fair, it’ll take time, given that the Holy Spirit has only just come on the scene…

Share your thoughts on the bishop’s condemnation of the abuse of the (now extended by a year) synod process, and on his new book on the Mass.

    I thought it hadn’t been ‘extended’ – more ‘set back’ due to lack of interest. Seriously – even the novus ordo Catholics I know wouldn’t have a clue what you’re talking about if you started going on about ‘The Synod on Synodality’. They just go to Mass and do the basics, trying to keep body and soul together, and it’s only a tiny minority in each parish that are interested in this kind of talking shop – usually those with an agenda. A priest I once knew called that type “sacristy mice”. Their proper vocation is to re-christianise the world, but all they want to do is secularise the Church.

      You are right, the majority of pew Catholics won’t even have heard of the synod on synodality, stupid title.

      Yet, from what I am hearing on the grapevine, it is the opinions of the laity that are being sought about the Latin Mass/TC. It’s not just the clergy but selected lay people, who are being asked and again, those lay people won’t have a clue about the real issues.

      It’s hard to understand but we are witnessing serious efforts to destroy the Church – from within, and at the highest levels. It is breath-taking.

    “Direct communication with the Holy Spirit” (aka Holy Ghost) is pure Protestantism, and is a lie that was used, way back in the 16th century, to pronounce the Church unnecessary, since “all you need is Jesus.”

    Amazing, isn’t it, how leftists always fall back on the same strategy to achieve their foul ends: disguise their evil deeds in a mantle of language that normally refers to holiness. The Church must be dismantled (their real goal) because the Holy Spirit said so! Vatican II is a dogmatic Council because the Conciliar Popes are saints!

    I’m afraid we are going to end up, in the Church, in the same direction we are headed in the USA: the devolution into local bodies who try to preserve sanity while ignoring the ruling body, and/or try to defend themselves against the abuse and persecution of the ruling body. In the case of the Church, the ruling body has been co-opted by servants of a Satanic agenda. In the case of the USA, different servants, same agenda.

    In the Church, ever since the laughably named Traditionis Custodes, that devolution is already happening.

    BTW, the name of that despicable document, Traditiones Custodes, is a perfect example of the Satanist strategy to disguise evil intent by twisting the language of the Church. “Custodians of tradition!” they crow, as they try to destroy it.

    Similarly, the “new evangelization” translates as “NO evangelization, because other religions are as worthy as us and they might be offended.”

    And, of course, on our favorite topic, the “New Mass” translates as “the liturgy bereft of Catholic content, except with a handful of accidentals.”

    But as far as I know, there’s been no redefinition of Judgement Day yet….as in “the New Judgement Day.” But perhaps that painting of Judas behind Francis’ desk, showing Judas being embraced by Our Lord, is the first step…

      RCA Victor,

      I wholeheartedly agree with your two posts – especially the Protestant claim that the Holy Spirit speaks directly to us, and that we don’t need the Church, just Jesus – because they sum up the situation we are in today. This is what priests are preaching and it’s like they don’t realise they are talking themselves out of their jobs, LOL!

      “despicable document” – just about sums up Traditiones Custodes. I get the feeling that most bishops are ignoring it – or is that just wishful thinking?

    Dear Friends

    Evil people with an evil diabolical endgame.

    Ave Maria!

    Every blessing

    I saw this good news reported elsewhere previously but this short video-clip is encouraging… Hopefully, other bishops will take courage and speak out against this ridiculous synod soon.

    Well, the blog is as quiet as a graveyard these days. So, I thought, time for another joke. I think this one is appropriate. Enjoy!

    WF “sacristy mice” is a very apt description for the busy bodies! For some reason our PP went along with forming a discussion group and only the 7 mice attended. A silly talking shop alright. When I told the PP what cardinals Muller et al were saying, he agreed with them but thought it was best to attend the synod in order to vote against the outcome “like they did at the Amazonian one” !! Strange idea to participate in heresy in order to rebut it. It just shows how disorientated people are.

    I found this video excellent, and worth sharing here.

    Are all you bloggers asleep? I wouldn’t mind some comments on this very pertinent podcast. Thanks.

      I’m certainly not asleep – I’m wide awake and have been watching this “silence” off and on for a couple of days and I’ll go on watching it off and on for another couple of days, or ten, if need be. If there are those among us who think I’m going to spend a lengthy spell preparing a blog topic and then do the same thing some 9, 10 or 11 comments later, they have another think coming.

      I’m busy with other important matters and I will not be posting any new topics here, for the foreseeable future – to include any unexpected headline news about popes and / or princes. Tough.

      I’ve not had time to watch the video you posted – I see it is a discussion including Fr Gerald Murray, who is always worth hearing, so I promise that I will get to it asap.

      PS… you have more than done your bit now, so you take a well-deserved break. Your Christmas bonus is now secure 😀

      Sorry! I’ve been asleep, LOL!

      I do like your video – Fr Gerald Murray is very good and so is Scott Hahn. I’m not usually a Scott Hahn fan but he was OK this time. It’s good that Fr Murray chose the calming of the sea as his book title because it’s that piece of the gospel that the modernists usually quote to push their agenda of change. So, that was clever of Father to play them at their own game.

      I meant to comment on this thread earlier because I really think the interview with Bishop Schneider is excellent. It’s very clear that the synod on synodality is the brainchild of people who seriously want to change the Church. If we didn’t have Christ’s promise to be with his Church until the end, I’d be really throwing in the towel by now. Bishop Schneider, and the Dutch bishop who withdrew and called the synod “vile” are giving me hope.

      Thank you for posting that discussion – it’s excellent, as you say. Father Murray is a wonderful priest and I agreed with every word said by him and the others participating in the discussion, including Scott Hahn. I thought they were all marvellous and dealt with so many crucial topics, including the suffering of parents who can’t get through to their children who are homosexual. The story at the end from the Dr about the unrepentant young man took my breath away.

      I didn’t know about that Franciscan university – it’s obviously top class as far as the faith is concerned. If only we had something like that over here.

        I know some people who studied there and they were well formed in the faith. I think it’s a liberal arts degree that they offer rather than vocational ones but I must confess that the American education system confuses me!

      Dear crofterlady and friends

      I refer to my earlier remarks. In addition l would suggest that my comments are a very simple expression of all our insights etc.

      Regarding the previous videos and eminent Ecclesiastics it high time more of them spoke out instead vacillating, sitting on the doctrinal and moral fence.

      In short lm fed up with them and to use an old Scots expression SCUNNERED, not at God but Cowardly Ecclesiastics.

      Blessings and prayers to everyone

      Michael 🙏

    Fortunately in our parish we have been spared any discussion about this synodality nonsense since our pp consigned all correspondence regarding it to the rubbish bin!
    Like Laura I sometimes feel tempted to despair about the state of the Church at the moment, and especially over the behaviour of Pope Francis. I follow most of what Michael Matt publishes on the Remnant and he is getting increasingly angry with what goes on in Rome. It does feel as though Our Lord is sleeping during the tempest but we know that in the end all will be well. At least it looks like some of the hierarchy are finally realising what is going on.
