The Inevitable Failure of the Worldly Synod

There is nothing anyone can do to change or harm the substance of the Holy Eucharist. Likewise, there is nothing the Synod on Synodality can do to change or harm the nature of the Church, which is Marian. The victory of Our Lady throughout her earthly life is a pattern shown to us for the like victory of the Church throughout history. The aims of the Synod run hopelessly against her. Faced with the awful rebellion against God which is Francis’ Synod, Catholics enjoy every reason for total confidence in the triumph of Mary’s Immaculate Heart.

It also applies to evil bringing its own punishment. The Sapiential Books impart this wisdom repeatedly: “He that covereth hatred deceitfully, his malice shall be laid open in the public assembly. He that diggeth a pit, shall fall into it: and he that rolleth a stone, it shall return to him” (Prov 26:26-27). It is the very actions and schemes of plotters which injure them: “He that diggeth a pit, shall fall into it: and he that breaketh a hedge, a serpent shall bite him. He that removeth stones, shall be hurt by them: and he that cutteth trees, shall be wounded by them” (Eccl 10:8-9). How much worse for those who advocate immorality, overturn hierarchy, obscure tradition and cut down the Cross. “He hath opened a pit and dug it; and he is fallen into the hole he made. His sorrow shall be turned on his own head: and his iniquity shall come down upon his crown” (Ps 7:16-17). These lines were the fruit of David’s experiences with Saul, as true today as they were then.
