Next Synod Will Be On MARRIED PRIESTS! Titled ‘Young People, The Faith And Discernment Of Vocation’ OCTOBER 2018!
For all you who did not see Pope Francis coming but then said you did, here's your chance again (two years in advance) to see this coming:
2018 Synod will be on MARRIED PRIESTS!
How many of the leaders of the trad movement will fall for the line that the next Synod is about:
'Young People, the Faith and Discernment of Vocation’
Yea..sure it is.
Who took the bait so far?
1. Ed Pentin of the National Catholic Reporter who is spreading the news on the 2018 Synod:
News of the decision comes after speculation that the next synod would be about priestly celibacy and a possible push to allow married priests, something Pope Francis is known to be keen to examine. That proposal was understood to have been voted down by the majority of members on the XIV Ordinary Council of the Synod of Bishops, the body charged with drawing up the theme of the next synod.
2. Fr. John Zuhlsdorf who said about the news:
Many more to follow.
How will this all play out?
Well the Catholic bloggers will take the bait that the Synod is only about young vocations and will then have misgivings just before the Synod and during the Synod.
Then one blogger will say hey! wait a minute! This Synod has turned into a Synod on MARRIED PRIESTS! and then the rest will follow.
And when all is said and done, and Pope Francis approves of MARRIED PRIESTS the lot of Catholic bloggers who were taken in by today's announcement will declare that they knew along that the Synod was all about MARRIED PRIESTS and each blogger will climb over themselves claiming that they and they alone were the first to see this all coming.....and please donate..and so on..
And of course Mark Shea will be all for Married Priests and may become one himself!
What a circus it will be in the Catholic blogosphere!
