In a thread posted on X, formerly Twitter, Martin described how he recently blessed a friend and his 'husband' as a couple following the instructions given in the controversial Vatican declaration Fiducia Supplicans.
Even today, when the Church seems to be eclipsed by the actions of evil men, we can identify where she is, and where she is not; and by submitting to her magisterium, and receiving her sacraments, we can be transformed and made ready for eternal life.
The pope or a bishop may be, by virtue of his office, a member of the magisterium, but his teaching, if it contradicts the received previous magisterial teaching, is not magisterial. Such false teaching simply fails to meet the necessary criteria.
By suggesting that the 'faith experience' of the particular individuals who took part in the synod is a 'theological place,' the drafters of the text are trying to turn their personal experiences into a source for future theological developments.
Descriptions of the actions and plans of Freemasons and similar secret societies by previous popes and Catholic authors seem to correlate with at least some of the destructive and secret history of the FBI.
It must be that only those professing the true faith can reasonably be considered Catholic. Otherwise, we would be in the position of stating that those who publicly reject the rule of faith nonetheless share in the 'profession of the same faith' with those who do give their submission.
Since the authority of the bishops does not come from the pope, but from Christ, and since that authority may not and cannot be justly removed except when there is just cause, Pope Francis has no power to 'dismiss' a bishop as if the bishop were his house servant.
The 'synodal form' of theology no longer looks to the infallible magisterium of the Catholic Church as its source and authoritative guide but rather to 'the ability to listen, dialogue, discern and integrate the multiplicity and variety of instances and inputs.'
