Cardinal Pell calls Synod process “toxic nightmare”

Shortly before he died, Cardinal Pell wrote an article for The Spectator in which he denounced the Vatican’s plans for its forthcoming ‘Synod on Synodality’ as a ‘toxic nightmare.’ Those plans, he wrote, are “incomplete, hostile in significant ways to the apostolic tradition and nowhere acknowledges the New Testament as the Word of God, normative for all teaching on faith and morals.”
