I know, I know, a lot of people seem to have problems launching LibreOffice on macOS Catalina. I've seen many other posts here and I've already read this document: LibreOffice and macOS Catalina. I'll be very happy to be proven wrong, but I don't think my issue is the same thing. I am right-clicking the app and choosing Open, as most answers here and the aforementioned support document instruct me to do.

My issue is the app launches and immediately quits without any error message. The issue most people have is accompanied by a message about the app not having been opened because the developer couldn't be verified, but mine just fails to launch silently. I opened the Console to try and see any hint of what might be going on, and there I see these messages:
