Let me qualify my title. Make no mistake, there is an agenda, a political/religious one, at work in the self-referential Synod on Synodality (Pope Francis’ Description of what his synod on synodality is) that requires those manipulating the outcome of the synod in a heterodox pastoral way to hoodwink innocent Catholics into thinking that their heterodox pastoral outcome is what the Holy Spirit wants.
In other words, the heterodox are using the Holy Spirit to manipulate Catholics and others of good will. At the least, using God to manipulate people to accept purely human ideologies is to take the Lord’s Most Holy Name in vain. That’s a mortal sin to do and the Holy Spirit will not be mocked!
In my most humble opinion, this borders on or is the sin of Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. If I am wrong in my stated opinion, then certainly attributing to the Holy Spirit what the predetermined outcome of the synod will be, is the mortal sin of presumption.
Clergy and laity today are too smart for this kind of rhetoric come from Archbishop Fernandez or the pope.
But, here is a really great commentary on all the chaos being created in today’s Church causing alarm in many faithful Catholics, ecstasy in heterodox Catholics and for those trying hard to make sense out of their own chaotic lives, disengaging altogether from the Catholic Church which now only increases their anxiety and personal confusion. Who, in the hell, wants more chaos and confusion in their lives and in this world? Satan, of course, not the Holy Spirit.
