Remember last week when Fr. Lombardi made a curious statement contradicted everything we knew about the Holy Father's meeting with Davis, and it all strangely appeared like Fr. Lombardi could be a mouthpiece controlling Pope Francis' talking points at the bequest of the Roman lavender mafia?
I came across this story today about another strange press conference he orchestrated with Bishop Paul-Andre Durocher, Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli and Fr. Rosica that lasted an hour and a half.
You'll remember yesterday, Durocher made all kinds of statements that were wacked out.
Yet, here is Fr. Lombardi:
a) not reporting what faithful bishops said
b) reporting what unfaithful bishops said
It also turns out Bishop Durocher helped to author the 2014 Relatio leaving in heresies voted out.
Later today, our friends at pewsitter had this link to the excommunicated 'new ways' ministry reporting that Fr. Lombardi is having a gay press conference with Fr. Rosia EVERY DAY.
Here in Rome, the synod is basically a closed event. No reporters or the general public are allowed into the meeting room where the bishops are having their discussions. But every day at 1:00 p.m., the Vatican spokesperson, Father Federico Lombardi, is joined by international staff (including English speaker Father Thomas Rosica, CSB) and a few of the synod participants, to explain what transpired since the day before.
In the press conference, Durocher made the astounding claim that doctrine on adultery being a mortal sin could be framed as 'a discipline' and consequently changed, so that people committing adultery could be admitted to the Eucharist.
A real piece of work.
And get this:
“To be quite honest, there might be differences of opinion”
Yeah. Your opinion is different than the theology of Christ's Church.
The word "honest" is farcical.
A person running communications for a pope, in good faith, would not use this individual to articulate theology of Christ's Church.
Something stinks and it smells like a big smelly rat.
As an aside, Fr. Z has a completely different angle than I do of the Pope's interventions. He thinks the Pope was trying to throw Cardinal Erdo under the bus.
Fr. Z and Edward Pentin are also getting a smelly smell from Fr. Lombardi's manipulative press conferences.
