‘Hostile takeover of the Church’

As reported by LifeSiteNews, Cardinal Muller claims the proposed 2023 Synod is ‘a hostile takeover’ of the Catholic Church. Of course, he is absolutely right. You only have to read the scribblings of apostates like Xavière Missionary Sister Nathalie Becquart, undersecretary at the Synod of Bishops’ general secretariat, and a special appointment of Bergoglio. See my previous comments about this faux sister who is entirely open about replacing the ‘clericalist Church’ with her inclusive feminist model where everyone (allegedly) gets a say. It’s the same Marxist con.


Cardinal Müller says Pope Francis’ Synod is a ‘hostile takeover of the Church’ in explosive interview

‘This is a way to undermine the Catholic faith,’ said Cardinal Gerhard Müller about the Synod on Synodality in some of his sharpest comments yet about direction of the Church under Pope Francis.

Raymond Wolfe, 7 October 2022.

(LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Gerhard Müller ripped into the Synod on Synodality in some of his strongest comments yet about the direction of the Catholic Church under Pope Francis, describing the synodal process as a “hostile takeover” of the Church that threatens to “end” Catholicism.

In an explosive interview Thursday on EWTN’s The World Over, the former head of the Vatican’s highest doctrinal office condemned heterodox ideas expressed by Synod leadership and in synodal reports and slammed the initiative’s focus on “self-revelation” as opposed to the Catholic faith.

“This is a system of self-revelation and is the occupation of the Catholic Church” and “the hostile takeover of the Church of Jesus Christ, which is a column of the Revealed Truth,” Cardinal Müller told EWTN host Raymond Arroyo. “This has nothing to do with Jesus Christ, with the Triune God, and they think doctrine is only like a program of a political party who can change it according to their voters.”

Award-winning article on Cardinal Pell’s persecution

Fr Frank Brennan was awarded the Australian Catholic Press Association’s 2022 prize for best feature writing for ‘Anatomy of a Travesty’. He wrote the following on his Facebook page, pointing out the reprisals for any Catholic of standing who dared to defend Cardinal Pell.

My 8-page feature on the acquittal of Cardinal George Pell, ‘Anatomy of a Travesty,’ has won the Australian Catholic Press Association’s 2022 prize for best feature writing. I am delighted that the piece was judged worthy of an award. It was always difficult for anyone in the Catholic Church to write publicly about this matter.

The Pell saga was an appalling police sting operation protracted by grossly erroneous judicial reasoning by Victoria’s two most senior judges. It took all seven of the High Court judges to put things right. Hopefully lessons have been learnt by the police and the Victorian DPP so that complainants and those accused of child sexual abuse can be better served by the criminal justice system.

The demonstrable failures of the Victorian criminal justice system did nothing to help the efforts being made to address the trauma of institutional child sexual abuse. As a society we need to do better, and the legal system needs to play its part.

I hope my writing has contributed to more just outcomes, sparing complainants and accused persons unnecessary added trauma and hurt.

The feature article is the last chapter in my book ‘Observations on the Pell Proceedings’ (Connor Court 2021) which is dedicated to ‘those who seek truth, justice and healing and to those who have been denied them’.
