My friends. I have not given up yet. I have not resigned myself to the prescribed fate of the Synod of Doom.
Some concerned friends and I got together and have produced an open letter to those faithful Synod Fathers asking them to walk out on the Synod if it maintains its current direction.
The Code of Canon Law 212 §3 states that the Catholic faithful “have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence and position, to manifest to the sacred Pastors their views on matters which concern the good of the Church. They have the right also to make their views known to others of Christ’s faithful…”
Therefore, we faithfully request that each and every faithful Catholic bishop at the Synod, having made every effort to resist these attacks on Christ’s teaching, if its direction remains unaltered and those faithful voices remain unheard, do his sacred duty and publicly retire from any further participation in the Synod before its conclusion so as to prevent greater scandal and confusion.
I urgently ask you to consider signing this petition and spreading it as far and wide as possible. Let those faithful Synod Fathers hear us!!
