Default Schism at the Synod of Bishops

Already three Cardinals -- Pell, Sarah, Burke -- have publicly stated they will resist the authority of Pope Francis if, at the October Synod, he should teach any doctrine or enact any discipline contrary to their own understanding of the Faith. They are essentially announcing an impending schism.

Moreover, I am certain that Pope Francis will broaden access to holy Communion, and make many other changes to discipline. I think he will also teach doctrines which are contrary to the false assumptions and incorrect conclusions of some conservatives. Then many Catholics will falsely accuse the Pope of heresy, and they will depart from the Church.

It seems that Cardinal Wilfrid F. Napier has implied that a good number of Cardinals might not be happy about radical reform of the Roman Curia nowadays:

"those shouting the loudest" for reform before Pope Francis was elected in 2013 do not seem to be as enthusiastic now, he said.
