Working Document Published, Amazonian Synod Will Abolish Celibacy

The Vatican published οn June 17 the Instrumentum laboris, the working paper, for the Bishops’ Synod for the Amazonian region (October 6-27).

The paper calls for the possibility of priestly ordination of an abstract group of "elders, preferably indigenous” who are "respected" and have an “established and stable family” [in keeping with Amoris Laetitia?].

It adds that instead of leaving "the communities" without the Eucharist, "the criteria of selection and preparation of the ministers authorized to celebrate it should be changed.”

About female ministries, the document writes in an unclear way that women should be given an “official” role in the Church, including decision making positions in theology, catechesis, liturgy and education.

The document speaks about Pentecostalism positively and negatively but mentions indigenous pagan religions only in a positive way.

It calls for recognizing pagan myths, traditions, symbols and rituals as a "source of wealth" for the "Christian experience."

Bishops' Conferences are asked to adapt Holy Mass to pagan cultures by using songs and dances, praying in tongues and original costumes.

Only Catholic "culture" and "tradition" seems to be banished.

Thanks homoheretic mafia. Hell is waiting for you
Another train wreck, i have no doubt the end is near.
A synod in Brazil called by a man who was never pope has no authority to do anything, nto even to swat a fly!
The "communion with nature" will become liturgical implications. Lex credendi, lex orandi.

The first bishop named for Brazil, Pedro Fernandes Sardinha (1496 — 1556), considered a friend of the natives, was killed and eaten up by the indigenous populations.
Is the Vatican endorsing shamanism? Ancestor-worship? Ceremonies with psychedelic drugs?
