Raymond Cardinal Burke and Bishop Athanasius Schneider recently published a document addressing significant concerns about the upcoming Synod on the Pan Amazon in Rome. They have called upon Catholics to fast weekly and to pray often through October to implore God to prevent error and heresy from perverting the assembly. The document can be found online at www.ncregister.com/images/uploads/BurkeSchneider.pdf
