The Extraordinary Synod on the Family is over. The final Relatio has been published. Sure, as Rorate Caeli details, there are several paragraphs littered with ambiguous, if not alarming, statements, none of which clearly affirm Church teaching and praxis on marriage and the family which no orthodox Catholic dared question for centuries. But, as the conservative Catholic media informs, there is no need to worry. The outcome of the Synod is a cause for celebration because neither rank heresy nor radical disciplinary changes made it into the final document. Yes, you read that right. The fact that the Church’s shepherds somehow, someway managed not to deliver a mortal blow to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ means there is nothing to worry about. There is no need for fear. Those vigilant for the Truth are just pharisees after all.
Everything is awesome. Let no man, nor an angel, tell you otherwise.
