Will Rosica sue?

"Father Rosica was criticized for appearing to give greater prominence to perspectives that played up a “progressive” agenda. As an example, he spoke of an intervention to the effect that “language such as ‘living in sin’, ‘intrinsically disordered’, or ‘contraceptive mentality’ are not necessarily words that invite people to draw closer to Christ and the Church.”
"According to many observers, during the synod, Father Rosica also failed to stress that such language is used in the Catechism and did not mention the reservations many have about changing such language because it undermines and weakens Church teaching. This led many people to see him as a collaborator in conveying a “progressive agenda”, even though other factors may well have been at play, too."   
"Some observers and synod participants stated privately that, in comparison to the other relators who stressed that the interim report was a working document, Father Rosica seemed to convey it as a “done deal” and seemed to suggest that the Church was calling on everyone to embrace it."
