Halloween2Bishops at the Synod are being tempted by a notion of ‘mercy’ through ‘renewal of the language’ of Church teaching, rather than mercy and renewal by faithfulness to the Word of God.

It’s worth noting that many of those seeking (and being offered) mercy (gay, divorced and remarried Catholics) don’t think they need it; their activists are full of pride (already taking Communion) — feeling good about themselves and their assault on Christ’s order.
