You Tube Video of Judge Peter Kidd Sentencing George Cardinal Pell to 6 Years Jail Time

Cardinal Pell has been sentenced to six years in jail for (still questionably in most peoples’ minds) abusing two youth choir members.  One of them has passed away but not before telling his mother twice that no one abused him.  The father of the boy, has taken up the cause of his child, nonetheless.  The remaining choir boy is now a young man in his thirties, as the deceased boy would be. The incident occurred in 1996, as reported.

Much credible evidence was given by the defense proving the innocence of his client. Indeed, the client himself, Cardinal Pell has denied the charges.  Evidence of innocence was not admitted.  This was a graphic drawing or video of the Cathedral and, according to the Defense Counsel, would have proved the innocence.

As Judge Kidd states in the video, Cardinal Pell, you are now in your late 70’s and might possible die in jail.  The Judge went on to say that “you have congestive heart failure, you have a pacemaker, a dual chamber one” It has been reported also that Cardinal had just had two knee replacements.

The video is long.  I wonder why it is being shown publicly now.  There was a total blackout on the trial.

Could it have anything to do with the fact that the Vatican is opening a Canonical investigation of Cardinal Pell, who in his position at the IOR found money … billions of dollars … not accounted for?  Could it be that he slammed his fist on the table at the Synod on the Family in 2014 and said “You’ve got to stop manipulating this synod!” This was followed by thunderous applause.”  (Alelia website)  Could it be that he has been the voice of traditional Catholic teaching in his native Australia?  We’ll see!

Why did Judge Kidd tell Cardinal Pell towards the end of the video that he was to have “an intimate test” and warned him that police would be in attendance should he object?


I guess you will have to google ‘Judge Kidd Sentences Cardinal Pell.  Sorry  again. I apologize.  The video is not available for showing in this arena.  Obviously.   Two tries!

Melchisedech Described By Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich

Belief In The Communion Of Saints

Melchisedech appears in ten different locations in the Holy Bible. Let’s take a look at these passages.

He appears in the Old Testament first in the Book of Genesis (Chapter 14, verses 18-20):

But Melchisedech, the king of Salem, bringing forth bread and wine, for he was the priest of the most high God (at vero Melchisedech rex Salem proferens panem et vinum erat enim sacerdos Dei altissimi),

blessed him, and said: Blessed be Abram by the most high God, who created heaven and earth (benedixit ei et ait benedictus Abram Deo excelso qui creavit caelum et terram).

And blessed be the most high God, by whose protection, the enemies are in thy hands. And he gave him the tithes of all (et benedictus Deus excelsus quo protegente hostes in manibus tuis sunt et dedit ei decimas ex omnibus).

Next, the Book of Psalms, of the Old Testament, mentions Melchisedech…

“The Lord Passed and Left His Mark Which Was Turned Into A Song”

Archbishop Bergoglio describes a Eucharistic miracle as a Song?  Church of Santa Marta; Buenos Aires Argentina;  May 8 1992; Feast of Our Lady of Lujan, Patroness of Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay

A priest found two small pieces of a Eucharistic host on the altar.  This was the beginning of the discovery of a stupendous Eucharistic miracle!  I describe it as ‘stupendous’ because eventually, during investigation, a Doctor reported that the  “sample had a beat” Incredible!  Amazing!  God can do anything.

As Father pondered the two tiny pieces he recalled the Church rules which told him exactly what to do and placed the pieces of host in a chalice with water to dissolve, then he put the chalice in the tabernacle.

One week later – May 8, 1992, feast of Our Lady of Lujan, the priest checked the chalice.  The water had turned a deep red, like the color of blood.  An “informal” analysis suggested that it was indeed blood and so an investigation was begun.  Meanwhile a series of Eucharist miraculous incidents began to occur.

Two years later a Eucharistic minister distributing Communion during a Mass at Santa Maria claimed to see a drop of blood fall inside a chalice.  Two years after that , on the feast of the Assumption, a host that had fallen to the floor during Mass was once again placed in water at Santa Maria, and it too turned into what was believed to be blood.

Apparently it wasn’t until this time that the decision was made to call Jorge Maria Bergoglio who was Archbishop of Buenos Aires at the time.  He asked for tests and a local doctor, Ricardo Castanon took a sample from what was known by then as the”1992 sign” and sent it to a lab in San Francisco. The substance was human tissue and “could” belong to a heart.

Dissatisfied with “could” Bergoglio had Catanon send the material to a Doctor in New York and the definitive finding was heart muscle called the myocardium.  Specifically,  the left ventricle which pumps oxygenated blood from the lungs to the body.  This doctor found that the person from whom the sample came had suffered greatly, including trauma to the chest.

“WE DON’T CALL IT A MIRACLE, WE DESCRIBE IT AS A SIGN”                                               Father Alberto Vari, Pastor said that there is “little overt publicity about this.  Some information can be found on line and some reported miracles”. He said his interview with Crux was rare but that is something I want to change … though slowly..  He wants “the sign” to become better known outside Santa Maria, but wants the parish to maintain its intimacy.

This story is strange.  Does our Pope believe in anything?  This is not a sign nor a song!

“We don’t call it a miracle.  We describe it as a sign” said Father Alberto Vari.

This incident, if one can call such a stupendous miracle an incident, could be called  a prelude to the teachings of a Shepherd who wants his sheep to be devoured by ravenous, snarling  wolves.  Pope Francis is brainwashing us about the Holy Eucharist.


In a homily given at the Church of Santa Maria Consolatrice, in the Roman Quarter of Casal Bertone on Sunday June 23, 2019 Pope Francis stated:

“The Eucharist teaches us this:  for there we find God Himself in a piece of Bread.”

This is heresy!  Furthermore … it can be found parading and pretending to be official Church belief on the Vatican Web Site … Homily of His Holiness;  Church of Santa Maria Consolatrice …

Behold!    From:                                                                                                                        ” In fact Jesus is NOT present in the bread.  The bread is bread and after it is consecrated, using the correct substance of wheat and the correct words that Jesus used – then it becomes the BODY AND BLOOD, SOUL AND DIVINITY OF CHRIST.  It is no longer bread.

The pictures below speak a thousand words


“When surrounded with new ideologies, new doctrines and when you are told that the human race today demands these changes, that will be the time when God’s desires are no longer responded to.

Instead … when man made doctrines, full of error and flaws, declare sin to be no more, the time will be close for Me to destroy my enemies as foretold.

Many more of you will wake up to the Truth and the terrible dishonour, which will be accorded to Me, Jesus Christ, in My Church on earth.  Those faithful servants will recognise the wickedness and then many of them will flee.  But, when the time comes and when this choice is placed before you all, many will, sadly, desert Me and take part in pagan practices.”   Message from Jesus to Maria Divine Mercy who suffers and begs for your prayers.

Future pope once called host-turned-to-blood a ‘mark of the Lord’

Cardinal George Pell – Is this prophecy about him?

“Do not despise prophesy”Thesssalonians 5:20 Many look down on ‘The Book of Truth’ prophecies of Maria Divine Mercy. Too many of her prophecie have come about. I understand she is suffering and asking for prayers. This is certainly true about Cardinal Pell. Who else?



“My dearly beloved daughter, how My Heart is breaking because of theplight of My sacred servants and the difficult trials which they will have to face because of My enemies.My most esteemed Bishop will be the subject of a terrible miscarriage of Justice. Then, when he has been demonized, many of My sacred servants will be taken to task, should they dare to utter grievances against the new laws, which are not of Me and which they will have to witness being introduced into My Churches.” (April 10, 2014 @ 5:22pm).

Did Communists Truly “Put Their Lives on the Line for American Workers” As Dorothy Day states in ‘America’

“How long shall sinners, O Lord, how long shall sinners glory?” Ps: XCIII 3

                 “Communists are attracted to communism by their goodness, Day argued  that un-erasable quality of the good that can be found within and outside the church alike, woven into our very nature.  It might have been an easier thing to say back in 1933 when American communists were well known to the general public for putting their lives on the line to support striking workers, but it was also the kind of thing that could land you in a lot of trouble, not least in the Catholic Church”  American Magazine”

“In 1935 Roosevelt had a labor problem on his hands.  When the NRA was launched it had a clause called Section 7a.  It gave to labor the right to collective bargaining through representatives of their own choosing.  Membership in labor unions had sunk to a low figure as a result of the depression.  Some unions were on the verge of disintegration.The NRA was, as far as labor was concerned, a complete fraud.  Employers were required to form into a single code authority in each industry.

images 7

For instance, the steel industry was united in the Steel Institute, but the steel workers were in no unions at all or separated into as many unions as there were plants.

Codes guaranteed minimum wages but generally the wage guaranteed was $14.00 a week. In many instances, workmen were earning less money under the codes.  For instance, in Detroit factory workers had their pay raised from 35 cents to 40 cents an hour. At 35 cents an hour they worked 60 hours and made form $42 to $45 in two weeks.  At 40 cents an hour they worked 40 hours under the hour limitation, and made $32 in two weeks.

The Wagner Labor Relations Act was passed and a good many employers favored this law which was,  presumably passed,  to force some kind of solidarity in labor and to give them effective bargaining rights. This was a failure.

afl-cio-Logo-on-white-tag-RGB 2


Eventually in  America, the America Federation of Labor, which included most of organized labor, specialized in organizing only craft unions.

This included carpenters, plumbers, masons, painters, machinists, etc.  They were organized in unions representing these separate crafts.  This constituted only a small part of the labor force.  The vast majority of workers were unskilled, employed in factories, or unorganized.

There were three large industrial unions – the United Mine Workers of John L. Lewis, the International Ladies Garment Workers Union of David Dubinsky and the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of Sidney Hillman.  An industrial union was one in which all the workers in a single industry are included without regard to the type of skills at which they work.

The Industrial Union presented the instrument by which all labor could be organized.  It was the starting point in building a powerful political labor movement.

Union membership had reached a membership of over fifteen million and presented a starting point in building up a powerful political labor movement.  John L. Lewis proposed that the Federation of Labor admit industrial unions to its membership and the disagreement was on. The old guard of the American Federation of Labor  bitterly resented the idea of absorption into  the huge Industrial Union.

These sentiments rose to a pitch during a Federation convention at Atlantic City in 1935 when Mr. Hutchinson of the Carpenters Union called John L. Lewis a bastard and Lewis hit him on the jaw.

A new group of unions was organized eventually … under the leadership of Lewis.  It was called the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) under the three large Industrial Organizations. Setting up this new group was a monumental task and it was at this time that the Reds appeared on the scene.



“There had been in the United States a Communist Labor organization known as the Trade Union Unity League which tooks its instructions directly from Moscow. It is estimated that ten or fifteen thousand Communists were in these unions.  There were a large number of members who were not Communists, of course, and the Communist connection was carefully concealed.  Joseph Zack represented the Communist party in the United States in charge of its labor activities from 1919 to 1934.  He had gone to Russia where he was instructed in the techniques of Communist labor control.

In 1934 Moscow directed the Communist party of America to dissolve the Trade Union Unity League unions and to march the members of those unions into the American Federation of Labor.     The purpose of this was not to advance the cause of labor unions into the American Federation of Labor.  It was not to get better working conditions for the members.  It was to use the apparatus of the labor union as an instrument of revolution.

The Roosevelt Myth                                                                                                                                 John T. Flynn

 _CPA-CPALOGO19  Symbol of the Communist Party of America which infiltrated the American Federation of Labor in order to use it as an apparatus for revolution advancing the cause for American Communism.  

The Communist Party of America in January 1935 passed the following resolution:

“The influx of hundreds of thousands of new workers from basic industries and mass production plants into the American Federation of Labor Unions … make  the American Federation of Labor unions more militant and mass unions in character, opening up new and greater possibilities of revolutionary mass work within them.

In view of this, the main task of the party in the sphere of trade union work should be the work in the American Federation of Labor unions so as to energetically and tirelessly mobilize the mass of their members and the trade unions as a whole for the defense of the everyday interests of the workers, the leadership of strikes, carrying out the policy of the class struggle in the trade unions …”   The Trojan Horse in America; Martin Dies;  Dodd Mead 1940

So as Dorothy Day began an article in America, published just before the launch of the Catholic Worker on May Day in 1933 … “Communists are attracted to communism by their goodness. “It might have been an easier thing to say back in 1933, when American communists were well known to the general public for putting their lives on the line to support striking workers, but it was also the kind of thing that could land you in a lot of trouble, not least in the Catholic Church.”

It isn’t all the truth.

The Trappists Monks from Our Lady of Consolation (1948) … ten years after May Day in 1933 in America … in the once beautiful China … can say it well.  From the grave:

“The death squad, Chinese communist soldiers at the ready, loaded their rifles with fresh rounds of ammo.

Shots rang out.  The Trappist monks collapsed upon the blood-splashed, frozen ground.  Their lifeless bodies, dragged to a nearby sewage ditch and dumped into a heap, on on top of the other.  Alerted by the shots, wild dogs roaming the village’s dirt roads, scavenging for scraps, hurried over to the bodies to investigate.   Sniffing, they lapped up the warm blood, steaming in the icy air.

It was all over.  Our Lady of Consolation was no more.  By that spring of 1948, 33 of the abbey’s monks had been martyred during the Death March.  Then the Chinese Communists went after Our Lady of Joy.  By 1951, two more had died for the faith.   ‘Blood of The Martyrs’  Theresa Marie Moreau  (with permission)

 Father Dries van Coillie, Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary can tell what it is like to be in the hands of those infected with Communist ideology:

“Comrade-soldier, go and fetch the handcuffs.  Then turning once more in my direction the judge said in a sharp voice “Don’t delude yourself!  Don’t imagine this is just a minor interrogation and that you will be able to appeal to a higher court. No! For you, the question as to whether you will pass through the gate of this prison alive or dead will be finally decided on this very spot.”  Turning to the soldier who had come in again: ‘Handcuff him behind his back and as tightly as possible” Then he said to me: “Go back to your cell and remember that we shall not give up until we have obtained your confession. I dragged myself along the best I could but no doubt no quickly enough to please the soldier, since he did not cease to harass me with ‘Get along with you!  Quicker!  Hurry up!  The blood and pus soaked through bandages;  the rings chafed the wounds unbearably.  Suddenly I cried out in pain.  The right ring struck the wounded flesh and stopped me from walking.  I felt an agonizing pain in my feet and in my whole body.  It was the soldier who had set his foot on the chain.  He exploded with laughter.” I Was Brainwashed in Peking  Father Dries Van Coillie 

Father Vincent Lebbe, who was captured by the Reds at southern Shansi in 1940 was held prisoner for six weeks, threatened with death, and released only when the Nationalist armies approached.  His story can speak to the heart better than I:

Father Lebbe was forced to watch the executions of the Chinese Brothers of his order by burial alive.

Father Lebbe died in a hospital in Chungking, in June 1940 due of the mistreatment he had suffered from the Reds.  Almost his last words were these:

              “The Chinese Communists are not Chinese.  The Chinese Communists are not men.  The Chinese Communists are living devils.”   God’s Underground in Asia Gretta Palmer   


25686-004-FD8143CD     “How is it possible that such a system, long since rejected scientifically and now proved erroneous by experience, how is it, We ask, that such a system could spread so rapidly in all parts of the world?  The explanation lies in the fact that too few have been able to grasp the nature of communism.  The majority instead succumb to its deception, skillfully concealed by the most extravagant promises.”   Pope Pius XI  Atheistic Communism

It is true, as Dorothy Days says that we should hate the communism but love the communist.  I don’t think it is true that communism is “not simply a program for destroying the church”  Catholic churches are being destroyed in China as we speak and write. That is not a “good”  …  it is an evil.  Catholics are by law to be sinicized which means they must “make themselves chinese in character or form” … become communists in other words because the state is chinese communism which is atheism.  A Catholic must become an atheist by law or be persecuted, and , to be persecuted by communism means possibly suffer death at the hands of the government if imprisonment and torture do no work to sinicize you away from God.  Hatred of God is built into their system.

Communism is not “an unfinished product that depends on the recognition of its real and tragic mistakes.”  It is, in itself, a mistake.  Like National Socialism … better known as the Nazi party in Germany … it is a system without a heart.  A system without God.

Nothing can be in the light without God.

The Awesome Catholic Green Scapular: Powerful for Conversions

Photo:  No copyright infringement is intended

The Scapular,unknown to the one to be converted, may be placed, unknown to him, in his room, in his clothes and I would put another one in his car.

This little ‘cloth medal’ was given to Sister Justine Bisqueyburu (1817-1903) ten years after the apparitions of St. Catherine Laboure received the Miraculous Medal as a precious gift for the Church to give to anyone who would like to save the soul of their loved one.  Miraculous cures have been attributed to it also.  Spectacular cures!

I am compelled to write about this!  It was an integral part of our nurses training.  I was educated by the same order of nuns to which both Sister Justine and Sister Catherine belonged. Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent De Paul.   Our nursing nuns wore the same habit. Almost.  Our teaching nuns wore the winged bonnet called a coronet (crown)


Our hospital was located on the outskirts of Boston, Carney Hospital.  Our nursing school was named Catherine Laboure School of Nursing.  The name has been shortened now to Laboure College.  In 1951 in Carney Hospital over each bed there hung a Crucifix on the wall.  At eventide the Rosary was said by the student nurses ‘on duty’ that day … in accompaniment with the loud speaker system which broadcast the sonorous and booming voice of Cardinal Richard Cushing saying the Rosary. 

I love the green scapular which we nursing students used to give to people!   

Justine Bisqueyburu was born in Mauleon, France and lived with her mother’s sister.  She entered the Daughters of Charity in 1837. Most of her work was in health care.  She served in Constantinople. She was a deeply religious girl and a nursing sister whose heart was filled with compassion for her patients.  Military doctors and officers esteemed her and she inspired complete confidence in all.

During the Crimean war in 1854 she was devoted to nursing of the wounded soldiers  on the battlefield.  Florence Nightingale noted her and decided that she would like to endow her country with an institution like that of the Daughters of Charity.

During her retreat in preparation for her entrance into the Daughters of Charity, on January 28, 1840 Sister Justine was in the chapel at Rue du bac in Paris.  While she was at prayer Our Lady appeared to her, dressed in a long white gown and a light blue mantle; her hair was not covered.  She held the Immaculate Heart at the top of which were bright flames. Our Lady said nothing.  At the end of the retreat Our Lady appeared again and the vision recurred five times during her novitiate.  On each occasion, the vision was identical to the first;  on each occasion Our Lady said nothing.

On September 8, 1840, the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Sr. Justine was at prayer and Our Lady again appeared to her.  This time Our Lady held a green scapular in her left hand:   a single piece of green cloth strung on green cords.  On it was an image of the Blessed Mother as she had appeared to Sr. Justine, holding her Immaculate Heart in her right hand.

On the cloth’s reverse was a “heart all ablaze with rays more dazzling than the sun and as transparent as crystal.”  The heart was pierced by a sword, surmounted by a gold cross and bore the words,  in the shape of an oval,  around the heart: “Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.  Sr. Justine heard an interior voice say that our Lady wished the scapular to be promoted widely as an instrument in the conversion of souls.

Ten years before this wondrous gift was given, Sister Catherine Laboure had received the Miraculous Medal with the same Immaculate Heart on the reverse.  This happened in the same chapel.

Our Lady keeps reminding us, through the years of the age of Mary in which we live,  that “in the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”  Spoken by  Our Lady of Fatima )

Conditions Required to Make the Scapular Effective:                                                   

Sister Justine did not understand what conditions were required to render this scapular effective.  She begged the Blessed Virgin to give an answer.  On September 8 1846 Our Lady appeared again, her hands filled with rays.  Her instructions were as follows:

Paraphrasing:   “That the scapular, not being like other scapulars, the habit of a confraternity, but just two holy pictures on a single piece of cloth and on a string like a medal, It suffices that it be blessed by a priest and worn by the sinner whom we wish to convert back to the state of grace.  It may, unknown to him, be placed in his clothes or in his room.  The prayer “Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death”should be said by the person.

If the person in whose behalf this scapular is applied should not want to say it, then the one who makes use of or gives the scapular must say it in their place.  The greatest graces are attached to its use; but these graces are more or less great in proportion to the degree of confidence which accompanies it”

The /words of Pope Pius IX by Father Borgogno, Procurator General of the Congregation of the Missions in a letter dated April 3, 1870 

 “Having spoken about  the Green Scapular to the Holy Father, I related to him the details of its origin adding that particular graces of conversions among hardened sinners had been obtained by means of it. He asked if I had one with me.  I answered in the affirmative and showed him one.  The Holy Father took it, examined it attentively and said to me:  “This is a beautiful and pious picture.”  Then he added, “Well, what do you wish in this matter”? I answered “Nothing else than the permission for our Sisters, the Daughters of Charity, to make and distribute scapulars similar to this one, with the faculty of distributing them”  Then he said: “I give full permission for that.  Write to these good sisters that I authorize them to make and distribute them.”

Stop The Synod

Cast satan Back Into The Abyss Before The Revolutionary Amazonian Synod of Francis The Merciful Takes Place in October 6 To 27 2019.  Notice How It is Planned To Be in Session on the Feast Days of:    Our Lady of Victory (Lepanto)   Oct. 7; Maternity of The Blessed Virgin Oct. 11;  Oct. 13 Our Lady of The Rosary (Fatima)  Oct. 24 St. Raphael The Archangel;  Oct. 27 Sunday Christ The Kin

Just Another Insult To Our Lady and Her Son and The Great Archangel Raphael who remained in the army of St. Michael! Not to mention Christ The King.  


Please Take the Poster ‘Stop The Synod’ and pass it around?


What a tsunami of prayer would rise up to heaven petitioning that the Synod be Stopped if everyone in the world said the Rosary on this day!



“Those enemies most crafty and sly have filled with bitterness and sadness the Church, Spouse of the Immaculate Lamb.

They have placed their impious hands over everything that for Her is most dear.

Where the Seat of Saint Peter and the Cathedral of the Truth have been erected to be a light to the nations, they have erected the throne of domination of impiety betting that with luck, having struck down the pastor, they  can disperse their congregation.”  From The Unabridged Exorcism Prayer written by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII  (the one they changed)                                                                                                                                                       


Priesthood To be Changed at The Amazonian Synod?”     This is what is written             in the Instrument of Labor Synod to be worked on prior to Amazonia:  “The cry of the earth from poor Amazonia today is from a wounded and deformed beauty, a place of pain and violence.  The territory has become a place of strife and of extermination of peoples, cultures and generations.”   Affirming that celibacy is a gift for the Church the document states that, “for the most remote areas of the region we study the possibility of priestly ordination for married men.  With families.” 

The clause that aims to ensure  that the sacraments accompany and support Christian life specifies “that these men preferably be indigenous elders who are respected and accepted by their community.”


Rites of Passage for the Kayapo state that “When children are born, the marriage ties between a husband and wife are formalized.  A man may have two or three wives.” 


Chief Raoni Metukire of the Kayapo Amazon tribe.  Chief  Metukire was received in a private audience at Santa Marta in the Vatican on May 27 2019 at Santa Marta.  

For decades, Raoni has been fighting to preserve indigenous peoples and the Amazon rainforest.  Over the years, he has counted on the support of important Western political leaders such as King Juan Carlos of Spain and French presidents Francois Mitterand and Jacques Chirac.  Well known representatives of the avant-garde culter, like the singer Sting, have also taken up his cause.  He is featured in the film  Raoni:  The Fight For The Amazon   Directed by Jean-Pierre Dutilleux

While many concerns about the Amazon might be shared, Raoni’s struggle has always been dominated by those who hold ultra-radical ecological viewpoints.  Such activists challenge the very foundation of a society based on development.  They see the primitive Amazonian tribes as a model of “eco-sustainability.”Ecosystem

This is a diagram of an  ecosystem.  Everything depends on each other for life and growth and nourishment. Ecosystems will be addressed at the Synod.  

Worrisome                                                                                                                                               “Worrisome” writes Julio Loredo, author of  ‘Liberation Theology;  Life Jacket For The Poor Made of Lead.’  “Worrisome in that there is a complete absence of anything negative about the Amazonian tribes, some of which practice cannibalism, infanticide, and, witchcraft.”


A Statement From Marina Silva, a former militant of the Revolutionary Communist Party of Brazil and ex-presidential candidate for the extreme left, which comes from ‘ Twitter:

“The scene of the embrace between Chief Raoni and Po;e francis is moving.  The Pope’s audience with the Kayapo Chief is a strong gesture by the leader of the Catholic Church.”‘

All this attention to the plight of the Indians is moving the “indigenist” left to raise the bar of expectations for the coming Pan-Amazon Synod in October.  In preparation for the synod, many old characters from Marxist-inspired liberation theology are lining up to participate.

One such figure is the most Reverend Erwin Krautler, bishop Emeritus of Xingu, Brazil, who will also be its rapporteur.  Originally from Austria, Bishop Krautler was one of Francis’s main consultants for the Encyclical Laudato Si  which is the doctrinal foundation of the Pan-Amazon Synod.
