IMPORTANT: Adopt a Synod Father! September 30, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Basics, different religion, episcopate, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, Papa, Sacraments, scandals, secularism, self-serving, Society, SOD, Spiritual Warfare, the struggle for the Church.
Someone has set up a website that will, upon request, assign anyone who requests it a Synod father to pray for. With the Ordinary Synod on the Family starting this Sunday, time is of the essence. The way it works is that you will go to the website and click on a link that launches an e-mail for you to request a father to pray for. They then send you the name and you can offer a Novena or whatever prayer you feel is appropriate for the circumstance.
I hope they send me Cardinal Kasper or Daneels. They won’t know what hit them!
Look, this whole crisis afflicting the Church certainly has its human element and we spend a lot of time dealing with that, but our main battle remains with the principalities and powers that have influenced the minds of many in the Church in a most horrifying way. In terms of human influence or natural means to change the direction the leadership of the Church has taken since March 2013, I don’t think we laity have many effective means of intervention. But in the spiritual realm we can exercise great power. I have been trying to ramp up my own efforts in that regard with perpetual Novenas and other prayers to change the hearts and minds of so many of our leaders, or, failing that, to at least prevent them by some supernatural means from doing something irretrievably destructive.
So! I pray you will consider praying for one Synod father in particular. It’s the best response we have at this point. Perhaps we can move the God of surprises to really shock the revolutionaries in the Church!
