Philosophy has coined the following observation about various processes: movement speeds up toward the end. This Aristotelian vision applies to Pope Francis' papacy, which reveals its harmful condition inasmuch as it drags on as the pontiff gets older.
Archbishop Justin Welby joined Francis on the altar at St. Paul's Outside the Walls and commissioned the assembled Anglican and Catholic prelates in pairings to return to their home nation to promote Christian unity.
A statement issued by the Dicastery for Christian Unity about the week-long summit explained that 'the bishops will pray, reflect and learn from one another. The aim is to discuss ways of growing together in joint witness and mission in the world.'
Up until the Second Vatican Council, the Church consistently taught that unity can only come about not when different sects put aside doctrinal questions but when non-Catholics give up their erroneous ideas and embrace the one true faith.
'The Church is one and belongs only to Christ, who is its divine Head, of whom the Pope is Vicar. Bergoglio has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that he is acting as an emissary of the deep church to discredit the Papacy and the Catholic Church.'
The much anticipated final report from the Synod on Synodality has been released, avoiding giving direct answers on controversial issues, but pushing a continued ‘synodal’ approach to general Church life.
