Letter allegedly signed by synod cardinals a ‘Roman melodrama’, Archbishop Coleridge says

CONCERNS about the synod on the family written in a leaked private letter that was signed by 13 cardinals has made the synod look “not much more than a political caucus,” Brisbane Archbishop Mark Coleridge said.

In his most recent blog post for the Brisbane Archdiocese, Archbishop Coleridge said the “confusing” situation, which has been denied already by at least five cardinals, including Australia’s Cardinal George Pell, said the political view of the synod blinded those from seeing the Risen Christ.

“The problem with an over-politicised view of the synod is that it can’t see that “there is something greater than Solomon here”, by which I mean the Risen Christ. If there isn’t “something greater”, then we should all pack our bags and go home, stop wasting time and money,” the Archbishop said.

“But if there is “something greater”, then it might pay for us to keep making our way through the muddle.”
