The Amazon Synod did not come out of nowhere. It has been planned in one form or another for nearly 20 years now, even if the planners did not have the Amazon in mind for inflicting their goals on the Church.
Our key figure is Cardinal Martini, who some called the ante-pope — a sort of adjacent pope, if you will — and one time head of the St Gallen Mafia before his recent death. His role in electing Cardinal Bergoglio to the papacy and his goals for ‘reforming’ the Church are essential to understand the goals of the Amazon Synod, which I go over again in today’s video.
