Recently, the Priestly Society of St. Pius X featured an intriguing article “The Pseudo-Martyrs of the Synod on the Amazon“. I began to wonder about the photographs and decided to dig a bit further. What I discovered was something so strange I have not yet processed it. The following links will bring you to some “You tube “videos on the men, both affiliated with the Jesuit order, who went into the Amazon and “went native”. I could not help but recall the headline which Rorate Caeli used when reporting on the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, “The Horror!” (quote from Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness”. In hindsight we note the prescience of that headline. This is why I continue to refer to the recent Synod as the Synod of Darkness.
