The Synodal (“walking together”) Way – German Style

That was in the Cathedral of Frankfurt at the end of the first day of Der Synodalen (“zusammen gehen”) Weg

Are we all enlightened enough to walk together that way?

Meanwhile, the Traditional Latin Mass must be extirpated from parishes and bulletins must be micromanaged.

    I see that the ironic but un-selfaware meta-commentary on their own endeavor continues. Anchors away!

  3. ArthurH says:

    There is no “fixing” this– nor the reported outcome from the synodal way re blessings– NONE without clear repudiation of such by those responsible for maintaining tradition and dogma. Such a needed negative response to this sacrilege seems not high on their respective lists, esp not on that of he who should be most alarmed, our Pontifex Maximus; some “bridge”. :( :(

  4. BeatifyStickler says:

    They need to ban the Latin Mass BECAUSE it perfectly expresses the faith. The agenda is mutually exclusive of the Old Rite. It’s a spiritual war in the Church. The conscience of the queers is bothered and they need to be assuaged.

    St. Jerome is often quoted as saying, “The whole world groaned and was astonished to find itself Arian”.

    One day we will hear of this sad era in the Church, “the whole world groaned and was astonished to find itself Homosexual”

    I entrust my Children to Our Lady, Joseph and the Oratorian Saints. Spare us!

    Walking together

    Goose Stepping together

    But I read someplace that this was “the unique expression of the lex orandi of the Roman Rite” and not some creepy innovation.

    Did they feel inspired by Dieter?
    It looks strangely familiar.

    Setting aside (if you can!) the super-cringy-washed-up-theatre-major-finally-has-a-chance-to-perform aspect of this, I found it fascinating that the positioning of the people (I suppose one would call them “performers”) enweaves the Cranmer box, er, table, er, altar, which, to be fair, probably tells you all you need to know.

    Too bad the krauts don’t still worship trees. A modern day saint could just go chop the damned things down
    It’s clear the devil has moved the Germans, their lady lay leaders, and their Bishops well beyond the trees….

    All I can think of is N.I.C.E., of C.S. Lewis’s story. They have gone over the edge, and the only people who can’t tell are the middle-managers who still think they have to toady up as if they were true believers. At the bottom end: If that’s what Germany is trying to sell to mass-goers, of course the churches are empty. And at the top end: there might be some bishops who believe this crappola, but the ones at the top of the pecking order sure don’t. They would actually be at the TOP if they were that gullible.
