Lay Catholic From Romania Gives Synod on the Family a Piece of her Mind

Strange tidings are coming out of the Vatican regarding the Synod on the Family that is taking place there.

Via Church Militant:

Monday’s press briefing just ended a little while ago. And I’m going to tell you, in this third and final week, it seems like the world press is being set up for an introduction of some very strange things because the language that is being used in this last maybe three or four days in various interviews is now starting to pop up.

Archbishop Mark Coleridge from Brisbane, Australia was on the dais today and he kept using this phrase that we’re having a “language event,” that the Synod is turning into a “language event” and we have to do a lot of “listening.”

“Language event”? “Listening?” What the hell?

Meanwhile, the pope is calling for “healthy decentralisation” of power in the Roman Catholic Church, “including changes in the papacy and greater decision-making authority for local bishops.”

The centralization of power in the Vatican has been what traditional Catholics have always loved about their church – it’s what prevents us from becoming fractured into hundreds of different versions of catholicism.

Serious Catholics the world over are perking up their ears and some are beginning to worry.

Father Z highly recommends this speech given by Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea, President of the Association of Catholic Doctors of Bucharest (Romania) on Friday.

I’m impressed too. But why does it take a lay woman from Romania to put these church leaders to some knowledge about cultural Marxism and the importance of resisting it throughout the world?

Posted in full via Father Z and Voices of the Family, this is profound:

Your Holiness, Synod Fathers, Brothers and Sisters, I represent the Association of Catholic Doctors from Bucharest.

I am from the Romanian Greek Catholic Church.

My father was a Christian political leader, who was imprisoned by the communists for 17 years. My parents were engaged to marry, but their wedding took place 17 years later.

My mother waited all those years for my father, although she didn’t even know if he was still alive. They have been heroically faithful to God and to their engagement.

Their example shows that God’s grace can overcome terrible social circumstances and material poverty.

We, as Catholic doctors, defending life and family, can see this is, first of all, a spiritual battle.

Material poverty and consumerism are not the primary cause of the family crisis.

The primary cause of the sexual and cultural revolution is ideological.

Our Lady of Fatima has said that Russia’s errors would spread all over the world.

It was first done under a violent form, classical Marxism, by killing tens of millions.

Now it’s being done mostly by cultural Marxism. There is continuity from Lenin’s sex revolution, through Gramsci and the Frankfurt school, to the current-day gay-rights and gender ideology.

Classical Marxism pretended to redesign society, through violent take-over of property.

Now the revolution goes deeper; it pretends to redefine family, sex identity and human nature.

This ideology calls itself progressive. But it is nothing else than the ancient serpent’s offer, for man to take control, to replace God, to arrange salvation here, in this world.

It’s an error of religious nature, it’s Gnosticism.

It’s the task of the shepherds to recognize it, and warn the flock against this danger.

“Seek ye therefore first the Kingdom of God, and His justice, and all these things shall be added unto you.”

The Church’s mission is to save souls. Evil, in this world, comes from sin. Not from income disparity or “climate change”.

The solution is: Evangelization. Conversion.

Not an ever increasing government control. Not a world government. These are nowadays the main agents imposing cultural Marxism to our nations, under the form of population control, reproductive health, gay rights, gender education, and so on.

What the world needs nowadays is not limitation of freedom, but real freedom, liberation from sin. Salvation.

Our Church was suppressed by the soviet occupation. But none of our 12 bishops betrayed their communion with the Holy Father. Our Church survived thanks to our bishops’ determination and example in resisting prisons and terror.

Our bishops asked the community not to follow the world. Not to cooperate with the communists.

Now we need Rome to tell the world: “Repent of your sins and turn to God for the Kingdom of Heaven is near”.

Not only us, the Catholic laity, but also many Christian Orthodox are anxiously praying for this Synod. Because, as they say, if the Catholic Church gives in to the spirit of this world, it is going to be very difficult for all the other Christians to resist it.

  1. The centralization of power in the Vatican…[is] what prevents us from becoming fractured into hundreds of different versions of catholicism.

    True, but incomplete. Centralized authority in the Vatican also has a demerit: vulnerability to the tendency to arrogate and concentrate power, as with all centralized power structures. The most blatant sign of this tendency was the declaration by Pius IX and the First Vatican Council of papal infallibility, which was as circular a bit of reasoning as has ever been seen on Earth.

    While the Holy See simply preserved and promulgated the Gospels and conserved the Deposit of Grace, there was no call — from anyone! — to bestow upon the Holy Father a degree of authority equal to that of Jesus Himself. Only a clerical hierarchy bent upon exercising quasi-divine authority that cannot be justified by anything in Christ’s teachings would have asserted such authority…and it’s gotten the Church in more trouble than will fit into this comment.
