Is your diocese having a "listening session" with the bishop?
Mine has been. The bishop writes:
Last weekend I held a listening session…to gather suggestions and advice in response to our Holy Father’s desire to listen to our people on issues related to marriage and family life in preparation for the Ordinary Synod in Rome during October, 2015.
Have you gone to a "listening session"? What did you tell your bishop?
It might be worthwhile to attend one of these if your diocese offers them, not so much as to participate in Francis's democratization of the Church as to bring the truth about marriage to those present.
I'd bring up:
There is no such thing as divorce. All mention of divorce should be scrapped.
In 1968 there were 338 annulments, in 2002 there were 50,000. The annulment process really is "divorce for Catholics."
There needs to be mention of the virtue of chastity
(cf. Pope Pius XI's encyclical Casti Connubii
, "chaste marriages")!
The Synod needs to explicitly condemn contraception, not just make a passing reference to Humanæ Vitæ
There is nothing good about sodomite unions, as the Relatio
