On Saturday, Feb. 15, Patrick Coffin, who lives with his family in Orange County and produces Coffin Nation, published a 12-minute video called “Amazonian Synod Docs for Dummies.”

He quotes from Querida Amazonia, not in tones of “Batman to Robin,” but the excerpts and surrounding statements are interesting.

One sample of a surrounding statement cited:

“The Canadian Jesuit who was made a cardinal by Pope Francis in 2019 has done a lot of interviews, Cardinal Michal Czerny. He recently said that ‘to ignore the final document would be would be a lack of obedience to the Holy Father’s legitimate authority.’ ‘Lack of obedience’ sounds like Vaticanese for ‘you’re deplorable if you don’t agree with it.’ “
