What to do ... in times such as these ...


I think I've been distracted long enough with the 'resistance' and the attendant issues.   From my perspective, they are just another set of people who have been scandalized by the tragedy  heralded by the start of the Second Vatican Council.

So what does one do to keep their heads in times such as these ...

Well first of all, there are principles to use as a guide for our actions.  Some are here.

The second thing is to practice the corporal and spiritual works of mercy and then we have the Beatitudes:

The text of St. Matthew runs as follows:

This is what we need to do and pay attention to #4 - we need to hunger and thirst for justice - not revenge.

Be assured, justice will be dealt out in the next life if not in this, by God, not by us. Our job is to pray for all those who are on the path to Hell, each is precious to God and deserves our merciful prayers.

Rorate-Caeil: Amazon Synod - Various articles.

So the exhortation has been published and is not as bad as feared, but perhaps it remains bad.

I have collected a number of articles from Rorate. Time allowing I'll search more and form my own opinion.


BREAKING — On the Amazon Synod document, let’s remain positive
Rorate-Caeli: On the Amazon Synod Document, let's remain positive

Rorate has learned that, at the current state of the text, Catholics should remain positive regarding the most controversial points of the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation “Querida Amazonia”, to be published tomorrow.

We cannot say anything, unfortunately, but we refer readers to the first paragraph of this post we published last week:

La Fede Quotidiana has learned of an important fact relating to the coming papal document on the subject of the Amazon. And this fact, unless modified at the last moment, contradicts what has been recently reported concerning a text in which ‘a yes’ is given to viri probati and the married priesthood.…
