Can we have a thread to post all news covering the topic? A discussion is welcome as well obviously. The synod commences the day after tomorrow.
What do you expect to happen?
I, for one, think that the most probable option is that annulment rules will be loosened. Of course it won't happen the day after the end of the synod (but next year at the earliest if I recall correctly), but still, the synod will be the direct cause.
Unless I'm mistaken the loosening of annulments is already addressed by a Commission set up by Pope Francis a week ago just for this purpose. It seems as if this Commission is meant to forestall any attempt to make 'loosening of annulments' be the ad extremis limit of the Synod's actions. If a conservative Delegate wanted to derail the Synod by focusing on annulments, the Vatican can now say, "But my dear fellow, a commission on this question is already in existence. The question is already being addressed, and we don't need to spend any Synod time on that. Lets stop wasting time advocating wasteful /duplicate proposals." Well played, modernists. >:(
I'd like to see His Eminence Cardinal Burke go all Saint Nicholas and deliver a knockout blow to Cardinal Kasper.

So I've heard Paul Vi will be beatified at the end of the Synod. Is this true?
This is BS! What's going on, come on! Who has a devotion to Pope Paul VI? He's the Pope both liberals and conservatives don't like.

I've also read chunks of the Pope's homily (from a secular media news), and its the typical Bergoglian stuff, you know "we are not here to discuss bright ideas and so on" (so basically admitting that Kasper is not bright and his ideas are dumb -- but, you know, maybe dumb ideas are good for the people, like dumb Masses proved to be so great).

How about we offer our sacrifices for this Synod today? I think I'll do that this and next week -- hoping, of course, its not just a farce; but anyway, the Holy Spirit can use farces to do good, so, no problem there (for God).

Holy crap - really?! I thought this fear about Paul VI was just a bugaboo of traditionalists. I am scandalized. Many others probably are too. This is the new pornocracy, but in words and not in actions.
Mass of Saint John XXIII vs Mass of Blessed Paul VI

!
All we can do is pray for the sanity of those participating in the Synod. Everything rests in our Lord's hands. Even scandalous canonisations have been willed by our Lord. However, being the realpolitik person that I am, I cannot help but think that these modernist developments have resulted from the inherent flaw of centralisation within the Latin Church, as exemplified by the post-Conciliar revolution. I frequently find myself believing in the superiority of Orthodox ecclesiology precisely because of its de-centralised structure. Other factors contribute to this „Byzantofilia", yet this doubt about the necessity of Roman supremacy always provides a seemingly rational and objective pull toward the East. I hope that these comments are not taken with offence, as I know that many on this forum would strongly object to such questions.
You are welcome here, Klemens :) formerbuddhist, myself, and others have similarly split minds about this.
