CNA: “This is not the first low-quality document the Synod secretariate has produced”

Firstly, there is a MUST LISTEN to podcast from Damian Thompson about Card. Pell’s railroading into jail.  HERE  Take the time.

Next, at CNA there is a piece in which Card. Pell comments on the Instrumentum Laboris for the upcoming Pan-Amazonian Synod (“walking together”).

The drop-the-mic line:

“This is not the first low-quality document the Synod secretariate has produced,” Pell writes. 


“The knowledge that my small suffering can be used for good purposes through being joined to Jesus’ suffering gives me purpose and direction,” Pell writes in the letter. “Challenges and problems in Church life should be confronted in a similar spirit of faith.”

Pell goes on to say that “we have reason to be disturbed by the Instrumentum Laboris of the Amazonian Synod,” which was published in June ahead of the October meeting.

There is some seriously unserious insider baseball within, but it all serves to culminate in a fulminating dig at a certain cardinal in charge of “walking together”.

    Thank you for recommending the podcast, Father. It was excellent. In listening to the details of the Beech case, I am reminded of the Kavanaugh hearings. There too, one could not ask for rational evaluation of the evidence without being confronted by screeching about believing victims. It was another public trial in a time of mass hysteria. Fortunately that time the good guys won. May God grant it that in this case Cardinal Pell is soon freed and retribution is made for the injustices against him.
