My recommendation for a Synod topic

How about we preach what the Church teaches?  


Every time I've preached contraception, homosexual attractions vs. actions, annulments, divorce, etc. people say they've literally never heard a homily on that topic before.


I know a lot of priests ARE preaching the topics above, but I think we can fairly say that the vast majority of Catholics have never heard what the Church actually teaches on this topic.



We have a synod of a bunch of men trying to figure out what the threats are to the family.  I hope someone in the room stands up and asks "Are we bishops and priests and our cowardice the REAL threat to the family?"
