Today is March 4th, 2015. The Synod of Bishops begins October 4th, 2015. That date is the 2000th anniversary of the baptism of Jesus, which was also the starting point for His ministry.
At the Synod, I expect Pope Francis to teach controversial true doctrines, and to enact controversial changes to discipline. The reaction by conservatives and traditionalists will be angry and swift. Many will falsely accuse the Pope of heresy, and will formally declare their refusal to submit to his authority. So begins a schism and the great apostasy associated with the start of the end times.
