Cardinal Burke & Bishop Schneider Call for Prayer Crusade

It is not news that many Catholics are concerned about the upcoming Amazon synod spearheaded by German bishops. The synod's instrumentum laboris or "working document" has many things in it that should concern all Catholics who love the faith. You can read it here: https://press.vatican.va/content/salastampa/en/bollettino/pubblico/2019/06/17/190617d.html.  In response to the concerns, Cardinal Burke and Bishop Schneider proposed a Crusade of Prayer and Fasting. Both had presented an eight-page declaration regarding what they believe are six "serious theological errors and heresies."  It can be read here: http://www.ncregister.com/images/uploads/BurkeSchneider.pdf.

The prelates are asking Catholics worldwide to pray every day the Rosary and fast for once a week. The prayer and fast are for 40 days (Sept. 17 to Oct. 26).

The Amazon synod is geared to propose contentious ideas, such as, having married priests, accepting Pagan-indigenous ideas as equal to that of Christianity, implicit pantheism, that Catholicism in the Amazon needs to go through a "conversion," and many other ideas.

The crusade has been met with criticism and mockery from those Catholics who align themselves with liberal ideologies. However, the majority of Catholics on social media are following through with the crusade.  We here at Sacerdotus will also join this crusade.  A little prayer and fasting never hurt anyone.
