This has been the pattern ever since Vatican 11. Introduce a topic of novelty and let it simmer for awhile. Then, study it to death with a final report that leaves the door open for change. Then, set up an agitation for the change with expected opposition arising. But, finally, override the opposition by allowing for some change, which will invevitably widen the gap until the final result has been achieved. Been there, done that.
“What is perfection in love? Love your enemies in such a way that you would desire to make them your brothers … For so did He love, Who hanging on the Cross, said ‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.’” (Luke 23:34)
