Based on my vacuuming up bits of information via conversations and emails.
Today the members of the Synod are going over the draft of the Final Report. God help us all.
I am not optimistic, given the breakdown of the orientations of the small groups I posted yesterday.
Pray. They vote tomorrow. The Kasperites must be soundly defeated. Defeated not by a little, but soundly.
South African Card. Napier Fox one of the drafting committee for the Final Report doubts that Communion for divorced and civilly remarried will be found clearly in the Final Report. If that is true, the Kasperites won’t be able to claim outright victory.
There is a video of a presser during which liberal Fishwrap journalist Robert Mickens (fired by The Tablet – HERE) by Card. Napier. Mickens took aim, through Napier, at Edward Pentin who wrote The Rigging of a Synod. Mickens clearly hates Pentin’s book. Napier slapped him down. Start at 42:15.
Also, read Pentin’s post at the National Catholic Register. HERE The Germans think “mercy” can be shown to civilly divorced and remarried Catholics and others in irregular situations in the “internal forum” (i.e., the Confessional). And watch Fr Carlos Errazuriz, professor of canon law at the University of Santa Croce, dissect the German position.
Also, to understand really well how the Kasperites’ minds work, there is Robert Stark in Catholic World Report. HERE
