What does Bishop Tobin really think about the synod?
From the Bishop Tobin's coliumn on the website of the Diocese of Providence
— In trying to accommodate the needs of the age, as Pope Francis suggests, the Church risks the danger of losing its courageous, counter-cultural, prophetic voice, a voice that the world needs to hear.
— The concept of having a representative body of the Church voting on doctrinal applications and pastoral solutions strikes me as being rather Protestant.
— Wherever he serves, Cardinal Burke will be a principled, articulate and fearless spokesman for the teachings of the Church.
— Pope Francis is fond of “creating a mess.” Mission accomplished.
