Is the Youth Synod’s Final Document Already Written?

. . .shortly after the youth synod began, Edward Pentin, the authoritative chronicler of the family synod’s rigging, reported that an Italian cardinal close to Pope Francis had prophesied a great “surprise,” convinced that the pope would “for sure invent something.”  Pentin said some sources had indicated that the final document’s main substance was in fact already written, hence the synod’s deep secrecy, missing mid-term report, & nebulous voting procedures. . .
