Has the Synod finished before its even begun?

Breaking at Rorate Caeli blog is a report from Italian journalist Marco Tossati. The opening and closing paragraphs are below, Please visit Rorate to read the rest. 

We are in for a rough ride.

We are not being bad Catholics by expressing our concerns and raising the alarm of what manipulations and machinations are now under way. Do not let anyone tell you that you have no right to express your concern and fight for the Church!
Can. 209
§1 Christ's faithful are bound to preserve their communion with the Church at all times, even in their external actions.
§2 They are to carry out with great diligence their responsibilities towards both the universal Church and the particular Church to which by law they belong.
Can. 210 All Christ's faithful, each according to his or her own condition, must make a wholehearted effort to lead a holy life, and to promote the growth of the Church and its continual sanctification.
Can. 211 All Christ's faithful have the obligation and the right to strive so that the divine message of salvation may more and more reach all people of all times and all places.
Can. 212 §1 Christ's faithful, conscious of their own responsibility, are bound to show christian obedience to what the sacred Pastors, who represent Christ, declare as teachers of the faith and prescribe as rulers of the Church.
§2 Christ's faithful are at liberty to make known their needs, especially their spiritual needs, and their wishes to the Pastors of the Church.
§3 They have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence and position, to manifest to the sacred Pastors their views on matters which concern the good of the Church. They have the right also to make their views known to others of Christ's faithful, but in doing so they must always respect the integrity of faith and morals, show due reverence to the Pastors and take into account both the common good and the dignity of individuals.

BOMBSHELL - SECRET PARALLEL SYNOD: Papal Post-Synod Document ALREADY being drafted by Jesuit group to allow communion for divorced and other aberrations

Summary: Italian journalist Marco Tosatti reveals that A SECRET PARALLEL SYNOD has been established in Rome, a cabal composed almost exclusively by Jesuits, with the occasional Argentinian presence (easy to guess who), to draft the necessary post-synodal documents to implement whatever the Pope wants to implement. And they will implement it, no matter what, as the secret committee to draft the Annulment reforms has shown; what everyone supposed was true in fact is true: the Synodal process is a sham.
***
In this context [that is, of the procedural changes mentioned by Edward Pentin], news has arrived to us for about twelve days that around thirty people, almost all of them Jesuits, with the occasional Argentinian, are working on the themes on the Synod, in a very reserved way, under the coordinatin of Father Antonio Spadaro, the director of Civiltà Cattolica [the official journal of the Holy See], who spends a long time in Santa Marta, in consultation with the Pope.

The discretion in the works extends also to the Jesuits of the same House, the villa of Civiltà Cattolica, Villa Malta, on the Pincio [Hill], where part of the work is done. One possibility is that the "task force" works to provide the Pope the instruments for an eventual post-synodal document on the theme of the Eucharist to the remarried divorced, on cohabiting [couples], and same-sex couples.

Thank you Vox, for listing the canon codes.. It is especially useful when we are accused of causing scandal, of ill words against our clergy. I'm sorry but we are only pointing out what they do or fail to do publicly for everyone to witness. From how many pulpits are we hearing our pastors speak of the evils of abortion, homosexual lifestyle, sex education for children, and I don't mean a mention of a protest or a pro-life rally, that is not evangelizing the TRUTH. It does not give a priest a tick or pat on the back '..you've done your job today, you mentioned the pro-life movement, your conscience is clear..." NOT !
WHERE IS A LETTER OF EXHORTATION SUCH AS THE ONE FROM BISHOP OLMSTEAD FROM OUR CARDINAL ASKING LAY AND CLERGY ALIKE TO STAND UP AGAINST THE ATTACK OF SATAN ON OUR FAMILIES, MARRIAGES OUR CHILDREN OUR MORATLITY. OUR LORD IS BEING MOCKED BY 'CATHOLICS' MANY OF WHOM ARE CLERGY. WAKE UP CHURCH LEADERS, HIT YOUR BREAST HARD AND REPENT....YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR LEADING COUNTLESS SOULS TO HELL, YOU...."...THROUGH MY FAULT, THROUGH MY FAULT, THROUGH MY MOST GREVIOUS FAULT..!!!!" IT'S NOT TOO LATE, GOD'S MERCY FOR THE REPENTANT HAS NO LIMITS. WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!

Thanks you Anna. You are totally correct in what you say and God Bless you for saying it.

The corruption in the Catholic Church has been evident for years now and has reached the point where only the corrupt and the ignorant find it appealing.

Let us pray and do penance that the Holy Spirit will intervene at the Synod so that orthodox doctrine and practice will be preserved and strongly reiterated.
