Pope waives statute of limitations: Rupnik goes on trial

Pressure from the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors is forcing the Pandora's box of abuses committed by the former Slovenian Jesuit to be reopened. Perhaps the Synod helped to point out the contradiction between 'listening' to words while covering up deeds.

FOREGONE CONCLUSION

Rupnik the vagabond finds home in Slovenian diocese

The former Jesuit is looking forward to his incardination in the Diocese of Koper soon, with the Nuncio's blessing. Moreover, no sentence hangs over his head, despite having committed repeated spiritual and sexual abuses. So, to the great relief of the protagonist and the Jesuits, freed of the hot potato, everything is "resolved".


The Synod is a manual of psycho-social manipulation
THE REAL GOAL

The Synod is a manual of psycho-social manipulation

Building consensus requires a method. That of Kurt Levin, inventor of group dynamics, is also effective in neutralising resistance to the changes that have emerged in previous synods, under the pretext of “conversation in the Spirit”.

Daily Compass annual conference: Pilate asks, what is the Truth?

From Pilate’s question to Jesus, to the snares of today's ideologies, to Redemption. This is the common thread which permeates the Daily Compass conference. And Truth is a person: it’s Jesus.

“Quid est veritas? What is the truth?”
DAILY COMPASS DAY

“Quid est veritas? What is the truth?”

The intervention of Msgr. Giovanni D'Ercole at Daily Compass Day 2023, on October 14th, focused on Pilate's question, which echoes in the restlessness of contemporary man. Jesus responds to the multiplicity of opinions with silence, inviting us to open our eyes and hearts to the Truth.

BOOMERANG EFFECT

Belgian pro-euthanasia bishop excommunicates himself

Bishop Johann Bonny disagrees with the Magisterium on end-of-life and moral absolutes in general. A position that automatically places him outside communion with the Church. But a kind of 'synodal impunity' applies.


Modernist Synod aims to make Church liberal democracy
THE BUSSOLA CONFERENCE

Modernist Synod aims to make Church liberal democracy

What categories of thought underlie the new synod? Evident are the influences of existentialism, Marxism, and Hegelianism, to the detriment of metaphysics. The aim is to insert procedural liberal democracy, which the Social Doctrine of the Church has always condemned, into the Church.

LA BUSSOLA ROME CONFERENCE

Cardinal Burke: “Synodality contradicts the true identity of the Church”

“The Synod that will begin tomorrow conceals an agenda that is more political and human than ecclesial and divine.” “The will is to profoundly change the hierarchical constitution of the Church is clear, with a further consequence a weakening of teaching on morality as well as discipline in the Church.” The speech of cardinal Burke at the Conference “The Synodal Tower of Babel”

Confusion: Vatican smokescreen for Synod

Confusion: Vatican smokescreen for Synod

Synod, answers (or presumed answers) to the Dubia, Apostolic Exhortation on climate change: so many important events presented simultaneously to halt in-depth debate and assessments. And in the meantime a forthcoming open clash threatens the Synod.

THE COMPASS CONFERENCE

The sheep in place of the shepherds, the Synod subverts the Church

The Synod has been distorted with its opening to non-bishop members. In the new Synodal Church it is the people who instruct the bishops on the meaning of the Faith. This is the liberal project denounced by Newman, with grave danger for souls.


Pope’s answers to dubia: paradigm of confusion

Pope’s answers to dubia: paradigm of confusion

From the blessing of homosexual couples to the penitent's repentance: as with the first dubium, also in the answers to the other four dubia by the five cardinals, the Pope does not clarify. First he says one thing and then another.

WORD GAMES

Yes, yes, or perhaps not: Francis raises more doubts than the Dubia

The response to the "first version" of the questions posed by the five cardinals offers clarity on only one point: the blatant refusal of the Supreme Pontiff to respond in a timely manner, preferring to leaving gray areas and glimmers of possibilities "ad usum synodi".
