Pope Francis launched the worldwide Synod process on Sunday October 10 in Rome, reaching out to the great community of the baptised everywhere on earth. In a message for the local launch, Archbishop Mark Coleridge poses the key question you might ask of yourself during the Synod’s 2 month consultation phase which closes in December: “what would I like to say to Pope Francis about the church worldwide?”
Everyone is invited to enter into the process and let their voice be heard. It’s a real call to enter into a new way of being the church, and on this journey of the worldwide Synod, the process itself is in many ways the product.
