The Synod on the Family is over but it is only a beginning

Throughout this Synod I have refrained from making any personal comment, and now that the final report has been presented and the Synod is over, there is only one thing I should like to say;

I have been very disappointed by the fears expressed so vociferously in some quarters that this Synod would lead to a watering-down of doctrine and an abandonment of truth and that in some way this was the intention of the Holy Father. Like Gerard O’Connell in the interview posted below, I see this as a personal affront to Pope Francis and it does not say a great deal for the faith of some former Anglicans in the Pope’s authority and his role as guarantor of the faith, if members of the Ordinariates, even some of our priests, are prominent among those bewailing the fate of the faith.

I commend the two interviews below, with Vatican correspondent Gerard O’Connell and with Vincent Cardinal Nichols:
