I received word of a conference coming up in Rome. The conference is clearly part of an organized effort to influence the proceedings of the upcoming Synod of Bishop on the family… and not in a good way. This conference – like the recent “Shadow Synod” of 5 May last – is also to be held in the black shadow of the Jesuits. It will be at the Gregorian University, like the last one. It’ll be an after-glow of the burning City of God that was the “Shadow Synod”.
Happily, like good Northern Europeans, they are charging lots of money to attend, perhaps not knowing that in Rome no one pays anything. So, there will be 4 people at this. But that’s not the problem. They will have papers which will go into a book which will then be distributed to.
Let’s look at the brochure and make some comment.

Note: Where you see Piazza della Pilota… that’s the Jesuit Gregorian University, even though the Greg isn’t mentioned.
An Opening Address will be given by our old friend Oscar Card. Rodríguez Maradiaga.
Note the description of the conference. They are looking for
“fresh perspectives on … the relation between doctrine and pastoral practice, the sense of the faithful, an ethics of mercy, and indissolubility int he context of a contemporary theology of marriage.”
This is sponsored by INTAMS and Aldegonde Brenninkmeijer-Werhahn, Dutch. She’s a wealthy liberal with close ties to the Jesuits.
Andrea Grillo, from the Rome’s liturgical institute Sant’Anselmo, is an enemy of traditional worship.
Eberhard Schokenhoff, one of the worst, was a speaker at the 5 May Shadow Synod. HERE and HERE For this guy, God doesn’t communicate truths to us. No, we are in dialogue with God and we, somehow, shape God. He’s for Communion for everything that breathes, it seems. He is a heretic.
What could possibly go wrong?
This is part of an orchestrated effort to condition the environment of the Synod.
