"The bishops failed to approve even a watered-down section on ministering to gays that stripped away the welcoming tone contained in a draft document earlier in the week."
"Two other paragraphs concerning the other hot-button issue at the synod - whether divorced and civilly remarried Catholics can receive communion - also failed to pass."

I guess they did not make progress on the issue of removing The Book of Revelation from Bibles because this last book of the Bible is filled with references to Flavian Emperor Domitian.
Revelation is a disappointing book. It was written after the defeat of the Jewish Revolt by Rome, apparently before Emperor Domitian was killed on September 18, 96 Common Era.
Emperor Domitian was the Living God because he didn’t wait to be declared divine by the Senate after he died, so, he was a living god.
Emperor Domitian was Alpha and Omega because his father was not declared emperor in Rome, he was the first Flavian royalty in Rome with imperial powers and duties.
“By the afternoon of December 20th, 69 Common Era, Emperor Vitellius was dead, his armies having been defeated by the Flavian legions. With nothing more to be feared from the enemy, Domitian came forward to meet the invading forces; he was universally saluted by the title of Caesar, and the mass of troops conducted him to his father's house. The following day, 21 December, the Senate proclaimed Vespasian emperor of the Roman Empire.”
And, he was the last Flavian Caesar. He was saluted as Caesar first (Alpha) and he was the last Flavian Emperor (Omega), Alpha and Omega.
Emperor Domitian is the Lord God of Revelation because it is historical that at times he was addressed as Lord and Master or Lord and God.
“Just as arrogantly he began a letter, which his agents were to circulate, with the words: 'Our Lord and God instructs you to do this!' and 'Lord and God' became his regular title both in writing and conversation.”
The gold crown and white robes of Revelation are also Domitian who had his priests where white robes and golden crowns.
And, the white horse of Revelation
is Domitian’s white horse.
The Son of Man coming on clouds? Look at, I believe the Arch of Titus. He comes on clouds. The Son of Man destroys the Temple. Who destroyed the Temple? Titus.
One must read Revelation after it is put in its historical context.
…21"For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.
The great tribulation was the Jewish Revolt—qualifying as a great tribulation that hadn’t occurred before or since. If that’s debatable, given other tribulations, Jesus is prophesying about the destruction of the Temple, so the great tribulation references the tribulation of the destruction of Jerusalem. (Descriptions are available in Josephus’ Jewish War.)
There is more supporting evidence. So, what should the Vatican do? Should it continue to leave the Book of Revelation in the canon? Should it continue to use Bibles that have the Book of Revelation which clearly references the self-deified, Emperor Domitian? The answer is no. Society, now, does not want a hidden recognition of Emperor Domitian in the Bible.
