Synod News

The Vatican press conference on Thursday 27th of October announced the publication of the next phase of the synod. We heard from some of the key people responsible for putting the synthesis report together.

Speakers included:
His Eminence Card. Mario Grech, Secretary General of the General Secretariat of the Synod – IT
His Eminence Card. Jean-Claude Hollerich, S.I., Archbishop of Luxembourg; General Rapporteur of the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops (remotely connected) – EN
Prof. Anna Rowlands, Associate Professor of Catholic Social Thought and Practice, University of Durham – EN
Father Giacomo Costa, S.I., Consultor of the General Secretariat of the Synod – IT
Rev. Mgr. Piero Coda, Secretary General of the International Theological Commission – IT

It is well worth watching or reading (depending on how good your Italian is – there is an English transcript, the video of the press conference moves from English to Italian!) to help you understand where we are up to with the synod across the world.
