‘Supposing the Pope looked up and saw a cloud and said
‘It’s going to rain’,
would that be bound to happen?’
‘Oh, yes, Father.’
‘But supposing it didn’t?’
He thought a moment and said,
“I suppose it would be sort of raining spiritually,
only we were too sinful to see it.’”
People seem to be reading the daily homilies of Pope Francis as if they are a sort of horoscope, or worse, code for what he thinks about the Synod and the Synod Fathers.
Don't do that. Don't read things into what the Holy Father says in the daily homilies. If it seems to you he is speaking code, that he is commenting on the Synod in a passive aggressive sense - ignore it. That isn't the Gospel, and the Mass cannot be used as a political weapon. These ideas are from the Evil One.
If the Pope doesn't make sense, if you believe you have to interpret what he says to fit some agenda, ignore him, move on. Instead, read the Gospel, go to Mass, pray the Rosary - pray and be patient and trust God. Every priest offers commentary on the Gospel at his daily Mass - sometimes it may not be all that meaningful to us in the moment. If that is the case, then meditate the readings of the day on your own.
That said - it is perfectly alright - even a duty - to object to the very bad doctrine being circulated these days ... Fr. Z said something I have to agree with regarding social media:
Had the social media existed at the time of the Second Vatican Council, it would never have been possible to ram through the radical liturgical “reforms” of the 60′s and 70′s. - Fr. ZI hope so.
Looks like rain.
