How to Respond to a Disastrous Synod on the Family...

1.  Don't be angry when the proverbial hits the fan. Best not to complain. Know what I mean?

2. Instead of getting angry, spend some time with the poor. It's a great distraction from the collapse of the Faith.

3. Stay calm and proceed calmly. Don't worry or fret. The Holy Spirit has spoken. Trust me on this, I know what I'm talking about.

4. Instead of being resentful and angry, consider a walk in the park instead. After all, its a lovely day, the birds are singing etc.

5. Look after your family. Don't worry, we're looking after the Church.

6. Think about it, you could be doing something useful instead, like employing young people to wash your car.

7. And remember to do the recycling.

8. Above all, don't be negative.

9. Respect the views of Cardinals Maradiaga and Walter Kasper. They've as much right to spout their heresies as you have Catholic doctrine.

10. Come on, people! Chill out and make peace! Cheer up, it might never happen!

Oh, how right you are... Bones, please NEVER GIVE UP!!! STAY ON LINE AND PUBLISH EVEN IF THEY WILL TRY TO RIDICULE YOU... because it will happen. They are changing our Catholic Church and people are clapping like sometimes fools without understanding that SELL OFF OF JESUS CHRIST IS HAPPENING...

When I try to say something I am called immediately by clergy the divider of the Church, pope hater and disobedient, poisoned by the rebellion etc... There is no more need nor ear for healthy questions just asking WHERE IS JESUS CHRIST IN ALL OF THESE???

Tereze,

Donde Jesus indeed! Just straighten your right, bring it out perpendicular to your body and repeat " Heil Jorge!"

I am feeling so liberated after speaking with an awesome sedevacantist priest!

My suggestion for response to the Synod is that we all stop being nice, and tactful, and evasive, and Relativist.

This approach over the past 50 years has produced potentially the biggest disaster to hit the Catholic Church since the Arian heresy.

No, we must now, faithful laity, and faithfull clergy, and, incidentally, faithful bishops, speak out clearly, concisely and without any ambiguity concerning the Church's doctrine and teaching on adultery being a mortal sin, reception of Holy Communion being only for those in a State of Grace, and Marriage being indissoluble.

If anyone does not accept that then they can leave the Church. It is a free world after all. We are free to accept or reject Christ's teaching.

@Elizabeth. Music (well the good stuff) is from God, God is good. (p.s. never could get into the joplin version of this (sounds like a jack russel has just smoked a hundred cigarettes). RIP.

oops - commented wrongly on the wrong post - you'd neve think I'd spent most of my nine to fives editing and proof-reading. That'll learn me for switching between too many pages at once. Feel free not post this or the aforementioned comment Mr Bones, but it's up to you. If you do post, apologies to Elizabeth - see the beatitudes of bergoggoggolio post and the musical intermission.
