After an ugly and jarring fortnight, the synod fathers are now back on course
Topic: family synod
Well, Pope Francis, as Cardinal Burke implored, has now firmly upheld the depositum fidei: but has he let loose forces he can’t control?
But why is Cardinal Burke himself, the hero of the synod, being eased out? And what are these disquieting rumours about Cardinal Müller?
During the synod we heard too much about failed marriages and too little about faithful marriages
Cardinal Nichols urges faithful to ‘believe Francis’s own words’ at the end of the synod
Church must resist temptation both ‘to bow down to a worldly spirit’ and adopt a ‘hostile inflexibility’
Francis gives speech criticising extremism both in defence of tradition and pursuit of progress
Cardinal Pell also criticises synod’s midterm report as “tendentious” and “skewed”
If Francis doesn’t soon make it clear that the synod can’t abandon Catholic teaching, his pontificate could spin out of control
Cardinal Burke is right: the group responsible for reporting the synod is manipulating the presentation of what’s actually happening
