Some Catholics appear to be worried, up in arms about reports on the discussions between Cardinals over the question of admitting divorced and remarried persons to Holy Communion. In an interview recently, Cardinal Burke said that he hopes Cardinal Kasper will correct his 'error' on the matter.
There is still time.
These are discussions - not decrees. The Synod hasn't even started yet. The official discussions and debates haven't even taken place yet. Lay people are paying way too much attention to the media reports, the interviews, the 'leaks' - and they are creating a furor over rumor and gossip.
Journalists are paid to write about this stuff, as John Allen does here:
Read it. Think about it. But wait for the Synod to start, and then wait for it to be completed. Wait for the decree which results to be promulgated, rather than speculate on what could happen. Quit scaring people and causing trouble.
In the meantime pray.
And pay attention to what the Pope actually says:
In extemporaneous remarks to members of Carollo, an Italian association of broadcasters, Pope Francis said that the “sins of the media” are misinformation, calumny, and defamation. The last two, he said, “are grave, but not as dangerous as the first.”
The Pope said that calumny (which involves falsehoods) “is a mortal sin” and defamation (which involves truths that unjustly damage a person’s reputation) “is a mortal sin." - CWN
