Archbishop Peta: The ‘smoke of Satan’ has entered synod discussions


A Kazakhstani archbishop has said that the Church must defend Christ’s teaching on marriage
A archbishop from Kazakhstani has said that the “smoke of Satan” entered the Extraordinary Synod last year.
According to LifeSiteNews, During his intervention at the Ordinary Synod of the Family last Friday, Polish-born Archbishop Tomash Peta, Archbishop of Astana, said: “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 words of the holy pope, the author of ‘Humanae vitae’. During the Synod last year, ‘the smoke of Satan’ was trying to enter the aula of Paul VI.”
Archbishop Peta continued: “Namely: the proposal to admit to Holy Communion those who are divorced and living in new civil unions; the affirmation that cohabitation is a union which may have in itself some values; the pleading for homosexuality as something which is allegedly normal.”
Archbishop Peta said that the smell of this “infernal smoke” could still be perceived in some parts of the Instrumentum Laboris and in some of the interventions offered by the synod fathers.
He added: “To my mind, 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 Saviour. It is not allowed to destroy the fundament – to destroy the rock.”

  1. if you are in a habit of judging without trully making a great effort to help those in need then i am to agree ,that Satan too is behind this,,,,,,,,,,why???????BECAUSE he doesnt want you to be good and follow the faith and he wants to deny you all that can be good for your soul.Let all priests ,bishops cardinals open the way for all who trully want to embrace our great faith,without all discrimination i have seen.Love in the end will triumph,those doctors of the law who deny this love,are indeed diminishing the works of God Almighty………….the world needs more peace more understanding more love.anyone who does not like peace , love,understanding can not be of God…………………..

  2. while there appears to be a problem with the remarried and Catholic,each is an individual case,that must be heard by the church before judgement. Hard work i know but mercifull ,let the church help all those who want to come back to the sacraments of penance and the Holy Eucharist. Denying these people who need more,,,,,,,,is trully neglecting to be Gods representative on earth.Christ gives himself for sinners that is why he is there. Should there be a complete right to deny them this sacrament???Gods judgement is ultimatley on all of us.God demands mercy love understanding ,,,,he delights in penance,and conversion.Amen….
