Synod 2018 Concerns in a Couple of Sharp Sentences; Then Fr. Zed Rants

. . .another rigged Synod is now underway with predictable results.  All we need to know to verify that is the information that Archbishop Bruno Forte is on the drafting committee again for this confab.  He is responsible for inserting pro-LGBT propaganda in the written record of the earlier Family Synod. . .

How Could You, Archbishop Vigano?

. . .an excellent question.  It forces us to ask whether we have ever imagined that in praying for our shepherds we were thereby paying tribute to their rectitude & decency.  Think of the faithful whose priests, over, say, the last 30 years, have invited them to pray for John Paul our pope, or for Benedict our pope. . .
