Taylor Marshall: Amazon Synod might be ‘attempt to change Catholic morality’
September 27, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Best-selling author Dr. Taylor Marshall believes there is a growing “concern that this [Amazon] Synod might be an attempt to change not only our Catholic morality but our perennial theology.”
Marshall is also calling on Catholics to register for Voice of the Family's “Our Church – reformed or deformed?” conference. The historic roundtable discussion will focus on the upcoming Amazon Synod. It will be held in Rome at Hotel Massimo D'Azeglio on Friday, October 4 and will be live-streamed online at no cost by LifeSiteNews from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m Rome Time (9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon U.S. Eastern Standard Time).
The roundtable will feature for the first time ever lay leaders like Michael Matt, Professor Roberto de Mattei, and John-Henry Westen joining forces to tackle the hard questions being discussed at the synod. (Read below for a full list of participants.)
Every time there has been a “heretical problem in the Chrch” it has “always been an inside job,” Marshall asserts. But “every time there has been an infiltration, God has always used it for good. He's always used it to bring about greater clarity — on Catholic theology, Catholic morality — and also brought about great saints and a greater sanctity in the Catholic Church.”
The Pan-Amazonian Synod will take place between October 6 and 27. At stake are the gifts of celibacy, the nature of the priesthood, and the concept of evangelization itself. Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, one of the two remaining dubia cardinals, called the synod's working document “heretical” and an “apostasy” from Divine Revelation.
Given the gravity of the synod, this roundtable discussion is too important to miss!
