From it’s opening to its close and beyond, LifeSiteNews has insisted that the female statue used for the Amazon Synod was ‘pagan’; an ‘idol’; even ‘satanic’; the ‘goddess’ of an uncivilized, savage people.
They have also hinted at being complicit in the criminal theft and attempted destruction of the statues.
Pope Francis had described the image as a “pregnant woman with her Son in her womb“. And even after a quite different interpretation of the image has been brought into focus by Pope Francis and the synod participants, the folks over at Life Site, rather than acknowledge their error in rushing to rash judgment, have dug in their heels and employed deceit and dishonesty to continue their false narrative.
From Oct 4 and all throughout the synod the image displayed by Life Site has been the “pregnant woman with her Son in her womb”. (Pope Francis)
And even as Pope Francis is closing the synod with a prayer invoking the Virgin Mary who he said had become “Queen of Amazonia”, not by “conquering” but by “enculturating herself”, Life Site is still displaying the image of the “pregnant woman with her Son in her womb”…
Life Site continues to rail against the image as ‘pagan’ and justifying the criminal theft of the statues while displaying the actual statues used for the synod that have a Papal blessing attached to them, that show a “pregnant woman with her Son in her womb.”
It was only after Pope Francis, in his Angelus address of the following Sunday, entrusted to Our Lady, Queen of the Amazon, her ‘poorest’ children and the whole world…
… that Life Site changed it’s display from the “pregnant woman with her Son in her womb” to that of a barren figure, empty and void of life, in order to continue it’s narrative of denouncing the synod and defaming Pope Francis.
The good news is, Life Site is losing ‘popularity’, but more importantly, it is losing support. The blindness of its followers is caused by the darkness they employ; a blindness that is healed in the Light of the “pregnant woman with her Son in her womb”.
