Notes to Parishioners
A Synod for our Time
Pope Francis is holding a Synod for the whole church, to which every member of the church is invited to participate. In fact, participation is open to others as well, Christian or non-Christian alike. Much emphasis is being put on discernment —what the Spirit is saying to us in our time, drawing on the riches of Sacred Scripture and our Catholic Tradition.
There is a carefully laid out time-scale, starting with the parish, and other small groupings, then on to diocesan and national events later on in 2022, and reaching its culmination in 2023 with the Synod of Bishops meeting with the Pope in Rome.
It is above all a worldwide meditation for the entire Church, and everybody in it, to discern at this time what the Spirit is saying to all of us as a whole, and to each of us individually. It is emphasised that it is not a massive discussion about the management of the Church. It is much deeper than that. More spiritual. Discernment is being emphasised—discovering what the Spirit is saying to us in our time. It is a long haul, needing much prayer and work, involving everyone from the youngest to the oldest, from the strongest to the weakest.
We will grow into it as we go along. In the meantime, do please pray that the Lord will bless our endeavours to listen to Him in our time. Also watch this space to find out future developments. Thanks.
