Swift, Synod, and Second Hand News

You might notice that I haven’t really been commenting on the Synod of the Family. I have a perfectly legitimate reason for doing so.

The Synod on the Family is basically like a giant Town Hall meeting. Keeping track of it would be like me watching C-SPAN. Ain’t nobody got time for that. I’m praying novenas and offering up decades of my Rosary for Pope Francis and the bishops, but that is it.

I don’t wanna hear about who people say is liberal or conservative. I thought Catholicism was above politics like that. Or at least it should be. I know for a fact that there won’t be any major, catastrophic changes nor will the Church “get with the times” the way that the world wants it to. If it changes, it will change in small ways. Just like how Pope Benedict changed the way that we say the Nicene Creed. It’s a change, but not a catastrophic one. In all honesty, I just wanna know when Pope Francis is gonna canonize the parents of St. Therese of Lisieux. The rest of what I hear about the Synod just feels like gossip.

Speaking of which…

You already know that I’m a Swiftie and that I am a strong supporter of Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris’s relationship. Rumors have spread of a breakup between the two of them. I refuse to believe them. Is the media just having a slow day for Taylor? She’s on the covers of GQ and Vogue and that’s not enough? I may not like how she’s dressed for these magazine covers or the unfortunate implications of “Wildest Dreams,” but I still want the best for her. She hasn’t exactly posed for a Victoria Secret photoshoot yet nor has she acted in an outright racy matter. She’s doing really well compared to other musicians I’ve grown up with. So for crying out loud, LEAVE TAYLOR ALONE!

I’ll leave you with a song I like listening to when I have to deal with news I don’t wanna hear:
