Fr. Longenecker further reflects on the synod

I love this part:

Voices of calm chime in and speak words of peace in the midst of the tremors. “Take a deep breath. This is the way the church works. Since the beginning we have struggled and fought. It is through this kind of conflict that a resolution is found. All we are seeing here is the Holy Spirit at work: Thesis. Antithesis. Synthesis. Out of the chaos comes creation. Trust the Holy Spirit. The wheat and tares grow together. The sheep and goats are in the same flock. it has ever been so. Have faith. God is in charge. Pray more and see things positively!”

All of that is true, and that is the line I am inclined to take. I remember the words of the mystic Julian of Norwich, “He did not say we would not be tempest tossed, but he did say we would not be overcome. All shall be well.”

      Alan,

      You wrote: The homosexualists prevailed in the Anglican Church, they will eventually destroy the Catholic Church too.

      You obviously do not understand Matthew 16:18 — our Lord’s assurance that this will not happen.

      Norm.
