Today we hear an outstanding offering of William Kilpatrick who writes at Crisis. He has had a look at the Instrumentum Laboris for the upcoming Synod of Bishops in Rome in October about the Amazon.

He has nailed it. A German Cardinal (Germans figure big in this, btw), Card. Brandmüller, examined the Instrumentum and blasted it to smitherines. Kilpatrick takes up where he left off and stomped on the bits and pieces remaining, with great humor.

Really. Just dig in and enjoy. It’s fun, but sobering. There are really strange things going on and we will have a lot to deal with.
