Another Document: Does Pope Francis Feel Lonely?

Cardinal Koch (Ecumenism) and Cardinal Grech (Ex-Synod) will present a "study document" on the papacy next Thursday.

It is entitled "The Bishop of Rome - Primacy and Synodality in Ecumenical Discussions and Responses to the Encyclical Ut unum sint". Francis' selective use of John Paul II's encyclicals is remarkable.

In Ut Unum Sint (1995), John Paul II invited leaders and theologians of schismatic and heretical communities to dialogue on how the papal office, exercised in a new way, could serve the cause of unity with schismatics and heretics.

Francis has approved the "study document". According to KNA.de, a propaganda agency of the German bishops, it deals with papal primacy and [pseudo]synodality.

In line with John Paul II, the document proposes a "renewed form of the papal office that could also be recognised by the other churches". The Pope should meet regularly for consultation with other patriarchs and church leaders [all of them schismatic, heretical or both] on an 'equal footing'.

At Thursday's presentation, Anglican laymen and Armenian bishops will be linked live.

Apparently, having lost his authority among Catholics, Francis is now trying to find followers among heretics and schismatics. Good luck with that!

Vatican announces document on the papacy

Boo hoo, Francis. Speaking of loneliness, I recall a song from the late 40s in the States the title o which was "I'm a Lonely Little Petunia in an Onion Patch". A Dick "Two Ton" Baker song; I heard Arthur Godfrey sing it on the TV. I'm A Lonely Little Petunia (In An Onion Patch) - Arthur Godfrey and Sy Shaffer (1948)

In the new ecclesiology of lumen Gentium, conversion is no longer necessary (and therefore neither is the church).

Very few converts have been made to Catholicism; there are many more defections to Protestantism. After all, the second largest religion in the USA, after Catholicism, is FORMER CATHOLICS who no longer belong to the Church.

Ecumenism is a waste of time. It’s a strategy to employ when your faith is waning. It’s comparative religion. Nothing has come from these meetings, except for the food and drinks for the participants.
