Synod Expectations

Great post on unrealistic expectations for the synod by Hilary at The Devout Life today.

Although I looked forward to it months ago, by the time it rolled around, I couldn't muster enough interest to follow it closely--perhaps an inchoate feeling along the lines of what Hilary stated so clearly.

Really, what could be expected, when the American synod delegates were chosen from the "old guard" of Bernadin's boys, men like Skylstad (ugh, it hurts so much to think of the man who, although he's gambled and lost a century's worth of material patrimony in his own diocese, is somehow worthy of being the USCCB president) and Wuerl and Mahoney? No doubt the same sort of men were sending the same sort of delegates from around the globe.
