The Destination of "Synodality" - Lessons from Norway
One of the clear directions of this Pontificate is "synodality", purportedly devolving more power to individual jurisdictions (see here for example).
“The ‘sensus fidei’ (sense of faith) makes it impossible to rigidly separate the ‘ecclesia docens’ (teaching church) and the ‘ecclesia discens’ (learning church) because even the flock has a ‘nose’ for discerning the new paths that the Lord is opening up to the church,” the pope said.Of course, to be Catholic is to understand that Revelation finished with the death of the last Apostle. Nothing "new" can be revealed. The Church does develop "new" ways of explaining the deposit of faith (fides quae creditur). The Church does not reveal God's will, that was what Jesus did. Rather She is a custodian of the great treasure of faith; the Revelation of God made in the Person of Jesus Christ.
”a society with legal access to abortion is a better society than a society without such access. It prevents illegal abortions and promotes women's health, safety and security.”Can you call yourself "Christian" and support a violation of the 5th Commandment?
Is this where we are headed?
Read this in the paper this morning. I wonder if there is any correlation? How many “legal” abortions did Norway perform last year? Were the number of abortions greater than the 55,120 children that were born? I think I see the problem.🤔 pic.twitter.com/ZY5Em56q2U— Will Robinson (@willie_robinson) March 8, 2019
