A call has been issued by Card. Burke and Bp. Schneider to fast one day a week and, daily, to recite one decade of the Holy Rosary in the lead up to, the prosecution of, and the immediate aftermath of the upcoming Synod of Bishop which will deal with the Amazon.
The Instrumentum Laboris or “working document” for the Synod is deeply troubling. A proof that it is troubling is the division that it is causing. Some are questioning certain elements are veering into heresy. Others defend … well, not sure… perhaps the document but surely the intention behind the document at those who produced it by launching accusations of “schism”.
The whole thing smacks of the sort of diabolical plot that calls precisely for prayer and fasting.
If you are not used to prayer and fasting, this is a good time to get used to it. Start small if need be. One decade isn’t hard. Just set a time and do it. Especially in the family home. Fasting? We get good at things by doing those things. Start small and see what happens. One day, one meal. Cut down. Offer it for the working of the Synod and God’s guiding hand.
And GO TO CONFESSION!
