A poster of a topless indigenous woman breast-feeding a weasel is among the many graphics being used to publicize the infamous Amazonian Synod presently underway in Rome. LifeSiteNews videographer Jim Hale was able to obtain this footage while documenting the Synod in Rome.
Disgusting as it is, there is more to this than meets the eye. It derives from Pope Francis' eco-encyclical Laudato Si, which underscores the synod. What they're saying is that everything in creation is "interconnected," that we are "related" to the animals, and it uses this degraded imagery to make the point.
According to the synodal architects, we're just animals. The synod is about our "ecological conversion" and oneness with the planet, not about our oneness with Christ. It calls upon the Church to bow to the planetary idol and make "reparation" to "Mother-Earth" for the "sins" committed against her. It dignifies the superstition of pagan culture and seeks to pollute the Church therewith. It is truly the work of Antichrist.
Mr. Hale was also able to capture on film a most deplorable scene inside of St. Peter's Basilica—a nude Mother Earth idol along with Pope Francis and various cardinals chanting, dancing, and praying before the statue. The nude idol along with other shocking exhibits are now on display in the Santa Maria in Transpontina Church, just down the street from St. Peter’s. It appears that the Eternal City has become a forum for globalists.
Divine Wrath Imminent?
That Rome should descend to such diabolical depths that would have the hierarchy carousing around this latter-day golden calf is a clear testament to the apostasy of our times. These shocking events immediately call to mind Christ's prophecy concerning the divine wrath of the last days that would ensue in the wake of the abominations that would pollute the Sanctuary. As he says:
"When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place: he that readeth let him understand.... For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be. And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened." (Matthew 24:15-22)
The synod also calls to mind how God many times in the Bible had punished the Jews for turning to strange gods worshiping idols in their groves. Is history about to repeat itself?
The pope and his errant hierarchy would do well to put away their idol and return to their knees before their Crucified Savior and King on the Cross, remembering the admonition of Holy Scripture:
"For power is given you by the Lord, and strength by the most High, who will examine your works, and search out your thoughts: Because being ministers of his kingdom, you have not judged rightly, nor kept the law of justice, nor walked according to the will of God. Horribly and speedily will he appear to you: for a most severe judgment shall be for them that bear rule." (Wisdom 6: 4-6)
