Editor’s note: Last month, 1P5 contributor Dr. Peter Kwasniewski gave a lecture at the FSSP parish in Houston, Regina Caeli, entitled “A Theological Review of the Amazon Synod.” Below is the video of his remarks, and below that is the unedited transcript.
Catholics the world over have been disturbed, demoralized, scandalized, and galvanized by the recently completed Amazon Synod. As Br. André-Marie observed:
The recently concluded Amazon Synod was at least as horrifying as expected: on display were idolatry, syncretism, indifferentism, feminism, modernism, radical environmentalism, and liberation theology, a much more terrifying combination than anything Steven King or John Carpenter could imagine.[i]
