in the synodal process leading up to the Synod of Bishops to be held in Rome in 2023. The Pope tells us that the point of a synodal Church - "is to listen, as the entire People of God, to what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church."
Our Holy Father Pope Francis has invited the Catholic Church to embark on a journey together.
During the Diocesan celebration for the beginning of the Synodal Path on Sunday, October 17th, 2021.
This prayer invites the Holy Spirit to operate within us so that we may be a community and a people of grace.
"Celebrating a Synod means walking on the same road, walking together. Let us look at Jesus. First, he encounters the rich man on the road; he then listens to his questions, and finally he helps him discern what he must do to inherit eternal life. Encounter, listen and discern. I would like to reflect on these three verbs that characterize the Synod.""
