People in the Church, both clergy and laity, have lamented the lack of intelligent academic thought in the Church since 2013.
This video, just one more of many cliches bantered about concerning the Church, since about 2013, is simply embarrassing. I don’t find it inspiring whatsoever and I wonder who does, except those who are into esoteric nothingness.
In a previous parish, I had a parishioner, who would have been a borderline street person, if not for family members who house him, who thought he was an intellectual. It took me a while to figure out he was a borderline personality. But he could talk up a storm, sound interesting and academic but in the end, I realized he had said nothing, but said it brilliantly.
I would not even call this nothing video on the synod, put on the Vatican New website, brilliant sounding. It is shallow and empty and filled with cliches. If they think this will keep the Church young, then they are delusional borderline personalities!
Please offer a legitimate critique of this Vatican video, without being ugly, critique its theology and intellectual integrity:
