Given the Synod on Synodality convened by Pope Francis, the Associazione Tradizione Famiglia Proprietà has published a book denouncing the imminent danger of building a new Church, different from the Catholic Church as it has always existed.
After a three-year phase of preparation, the XVI General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will meet in Rome in October. The meeting aims to shape a new, “synodal” Church, meaning democratic and participatory. That Church should include everyone, particularly “marginalised minorities” such as LGBT people, unmarried couples, people living in polygamous marriages, etc. They want to discuss women’s ordination to the priesthood, or at least the diaconate. They seek to reconsider Church doctrine on homosexuality and marriage and tamper with the Church’s form of government by transforming it into an “inverted pyramid” whose top is beneath the base.
According to Cardinal Gerhard Müller, former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, if taken to its ultimate consequences, this synodal process, at least in its German version, which is influencing the rest of the Catholic world, could lead to the destruction of the Church. ‘They are dreaming of another church that has nothing to do with the Catholic faith . . . and they want to abuse this process, for shifting the Catholic Church—and not only in [an]other direction but in the destruction of the Catholic Church.”
Despite its potentially revolutionary impact, the debate around this synod has been limited primarily to “insiders,” and the general public knows little about it.
To remedy this, the Tradition Family Property (TFP) associations and sister organisations from several countries, including Brazil’s Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira Institute, have published The Synodal Process Is a Pandora’s Box: 100 Questions & Answers, authored by Julio Loredo de Izcue and José Antonio Ureta. It is written in catechism format, with questions and answers, and explains what is at stake clearly and directly. A plan is afoot to reform Holy Mother Church which, carried to its final consequences, could subvert her very foundations.
The book has a foreword by Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, former prefect of the Apostolic Signatura. In it, he states that the work “addresses clearly and comprehensively a most serious situation in the Church today. It is a situation that rightly concerns every thoughtful Catholic and persons of good will who observe the evident and grave harm which it is inflicting upon the Mystical Body of Christ. . . . I thank all who worked so diligently and excellently to formulate the appropriate questions and to provide authoritative answers. It is my hope that the fruit of their labours will become available to Catholics throughout the world for the building up of the Church.”
A worldwide TFP campaign will spread the book in Italian, Dutch, English, French, German, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish. These words from its Conclusion sum up the spirit animating its authors: “The synodal project analysed here takes up old heresies repeatedly condemned by the magisterium, taking even further the work of self-destruction mentioned by Paul VI. Thus, love for the Church, the sacred hierarchy, and Christian civilisation compel the TFPs and sister organisations to fulfil the imperative duty of denouncing the errors of this synodal reform.”
The Italian edition is published by the Associazione Tradizione Famiglia Proprietà, which is headquartered in Rome.
