Greetings in Jesus and Mary!
Happy October...I think? Yes, tomorrow is the Traditional Feast day of St. Therese and I will post something tomorrow. Today, we have exciting news that five Cardinals have stepped forward to confront Papa Bergoglio on his "Make a Mess" Synod. Yes, this Synod will make a mess and most likely cause a great schism in the Church. Below are the highlights of this dubia (doubts) and article links below with more details and a video. May we keep Papa Bergoglio and his synod in prayer because if this Synod and all that it brings becomes reality in the Catholic Church.....you can be sure God is going to answer if the Pope does not ..... regarding this synod and its dubia.

"The signatories to the new dubia are German Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, American Cardinal Raymond Burke, Mexican Cardinal Sandoval Íñiguez, Guinean Cardinal Robert Sarah, and Cardinal Joseph Zen, the former Bishop of Hong Kong.
Both Brandmüller, 94, and Burke, 75, were among the signatories of the dubia presented to Pope Francis in 2016. Burke recently authored the preface to a booklet published by conservative organization Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) calling the synod “schismatic.”
None of the five cardinals who submitted the new set of dubia are among the roughly 400 participants in the synod, which opens Wednesday morning and is scheduled to meet until Oct. 29.
Their decision to submit the dubia “is not out of fear of dialogue with the people of our time, nor of the questions they could ask us about the Gospel of Christ.”
“The concern that moves us is another: We are concerned to see that there are pastors who doubt the ability of the Gospel to transform the hearts of men and end up proposing to them no longer sound doctrine but ‘teachings according to their own likings’,” they wrote.
“We are also concerned that it be understood that God’s mercy does not consist in covering our sins, but is much greater, in that it enables us to respond to His love by keeping His commandments, that is, to convert and believe in the Gospel,” they said.
To this end, they said the pope’s answers did not resolve their doubts, and asked him to respond to five rephrased questions in a yes-or-no format:
In their letter to the faithful, the cardinals said, “Given the gravity of the matter of the dubia, especially in view of the imminent session of the Synod of Bishops, we judge it our duty to inform you, the faithful, so that you may not be subject to confusion, error, and discouragement.”
Rather, the said faithful must “pray for the universal Church and, in particular, the Roman Pontiff, that the Gospel may be taught ever more clearly and followed ever more faithfully.”
