Cardinal Pell on Synod on Synodality as Toxic Nightmare (Quo Vadis, Pope Francis? Part 230)

Cardinal George Pell has strongly criticized the Synod on Synodality, with such scathing words as “toxic nightmare,” “outpouring of New Age good will,” and “neo-Marxist jargon.” Indeed much in the working documents have been heterodoxical and heretical. It seems that the whole purpose of this exercise in synodality is to advance the agenda of liberals and modernists, led by Pope Francis.


Cdl. Pell called Synod on Synodality a ‘toxic nightmare’ just before he died


Pell expressed his criticism of the Synod in an article that was published on January 11 in the British 'The Spectator' magazine.



Shortly before his unexpected death on January 10, Cardinal George Pell criticized Pope Francis’ Synod on Synodality in print, calling it a “toxic nightmare.’’

Pell expressed his criticism of the Synod in an article that was published on January 11 in the British The Spectator magazine.


“The Catholic Synod of Bishops is now busy constructing what they think of as ‘God’s dream’ of synodality,” Pell wrote. “Unfortunately, this divine dream has developed into a toxic nightmare despite the bishops’ professed good intentions.”


The Australian prelate had similarly strong words for the highly controversial Synod document calling for “inclusion” of LGBT groups and proposing a female diaconate; he declared it “the most incoherent document ever sent out from Rome.”


Pell noted that “[t]he document does not urge even the Catholic participants to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:16-20), much less to preach the Saviour in season and out of season (2 Timothy 4:2).”
