Making Sense of the Synod on Synodality

St. Peter and the Keys statueCiao friends. Despite what some in the secular media are claiming, the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church is not, and never will be, “The Church of What’s Happening Now,” for those of us old enough to remember comedian Flip Wilson.

That’s why we want to share some recent interviews from my Catholic Connection radio program, as well as links to excellent articles that help you make sense of the happenings in Rome. These resources will give you important background along with the latest developments, but most importantly, to help you keep your peace and stay focused on Jesus.

Look for more emails to come and remember as I always say, the Lord is very large; and very much in charge.

Let’s remember the words of Jesus in Matthew 16:18,

And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it.
