Papal adviser: At stake in synod is relationship between church and world

The Synod of Bishops on the Family marks a dramatic and delicate moment, in which “the relationship between the church and the world is at stake.” [PURE KETTERIJ!]
So says a close papal adviser, Jesuit Father Antonio Spadaro, in an interview today with Vatican Radio. Father Spadaro is director of the Jesuit journal La Civiltà Cattolica and was a papal appointee to the synod.
Spadaro described the synod’s three-week session as a lively and effective debate over problems, language and ways of approaching family issues that vary in different parts of the world. Because the synod really does represent global diversity, sometimes there are tensions and conflicts, he said. [PURE KETTERIJ!]
“Therefore this is a very delicate moment, in which one understands that the relationship between the church and the world is at stake. This truly is at stake in this synod: to see how the church should live in relation with the reality of today, which has great challenges and great changes, but which, I repeat, is very different in the diverse places of the earth,” he said. [PURE KETTERIJ!]
Spadaro returned to a theme raised by Pope Francis the previous day, that the church and the synod must begin by listening to its people. [PURE KETTERIJ!]
“One cannot enlighten reality without first having heard it,” Spadaro said. “The human being is not an element extraneous to the Gospel. The Gospel is not an abstract doctrine that strikes people from the outside like a stone. It must be incarnated in lived lives, in experiences. Sometimes (this process) can be adversarial and sometimes peaceful.” [PURE KETTERIJ!]
Spadaro said the theme of mercy that Pope Francis has emphasized throughout his pontificate and the synod will continue in a follow-up phase during the Holy Year of Mercy that begins Dec. 8.
“And it won't end there. It needs to be understood that we are experiencing an ecclesial process of great dimensions. For this reason, it shouldn't surprise people that there are moments of fatigue, impasse, difficulties and tensions. But there is also the joy of constructing history together,” he said.
Father Spadaro was reminded that some synod bishops are uneasy with the emphasis on mercy, and say people also need to rediscover a sense of sin. [Inderdaad. In de hel is er ook heel veel 'barmhartigheid'! En misschien is dat wel zo, want God had degenen die in de hel terecht komen, nog veel zwaarder kunnen straffen!]
“The Gospel proclamation, that the Lord has died for us, has died for me, is not the proclamation of sin,” Spadaro said. “The proclamation of the Gospel is that of mercy: in the light of the mercy of the Lord’s forgiveness, I understand my sin, I comprehend my sin.” [PURE KETTERIJ!]
“If there is no perception of a merciful God, the sense of sin is merely a sense of guilt, which is often useless,” he said. [PURE KETTERIJ! Elke zonde is een objectief feit, dat potentieel de poort naar de hel opent!]
Spadaro said truth and mercy are never in contradiction in the Gospel, and so any attempt to place doctrine and pastoral practices at odds makes no sense.
“The doctrine of the Gospel is mercy. That is to say, the teaching of the Lord is the teaching of mercy. Everything else follows from this,” he said. [Over inkeer en bekering natuurlijk geen woord! In de verziekte geest van de neo-modernisten is de hel natuurlijk onbestaande en is de hemel de plek waar men de zonde 'viert'. Vraag dat maar aan Luc Van Looy!]
