Synod 2021-2023

The worldwide Church has launched into a two-year Synod on Synodality.

Now, honestly, that sounds like useless buzzwords. But it's not. Let's unpack it.

  1. A Synod is usually a gathering of the bishops. The original meaning of the word is roughly "together on the way". We're journeying together.
  2. This particular synod, the Synod on Synodality, is to help the Church (i.e., all of us) learn how to do synods, how to journey together well.
  3. We're learning how to listen to each other - in order to help us listen to the Holy Spirit - both now and in the future.
