My Book as Relevant as Ever

VATICAN CITY, October 15, 2015 ( - The smoke of Satan was trying to enter last year's Synod on the Family.
So said Abp. Tomash Peta of Kazakhstan in his three-minute address to the Synod Fathers on Saturday.
Blessed Paul VI said in 1972:
"From some crack the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God."
I am convinced that these were prophetical [sic] words of the holy Pope, the author ofHumanae Vitae. During the Synod last year, "the smoke of Satan" was trying to enter the aula of Paul VI.
According to Abp. Peta, this devilish infiltration was primarily evident in the proposal to let divorced adulterers receive Holy Communion and in the attempt to see the normal, positive elements in homosexuality and premarital cohabitation.
The archbishop then warns that one can still perceive "the smell of this infernal smoke" at this year's Synod.
Some Synod Fathers have not understood correctly the appeal of Pope Francis for an open discussion and started to bring forward ideas that contradict the bimillennial Tradition of the Church, rooted in the Eternal Word of God," said Abp Peta. "Unfortunately, one can still perceive the smell of this 'infernal smoke' in some items of the Instrumentum Laboris and also in the interventions of some Synod Fathers this year."
His Excellency says that "the main task of a Synod consists in indicating again to the Gospel of the marriage and of the family and that means to the teaching of Our Savior."
"It is not allowed to destroy the fundament — to destroy the rock," he reassures.
