Are we changing the world by the power of the Gospel?

This morning in the Synod Hall we listened to the RELATIO POST DISCEPTATIONEM of Cardinal Peter Erdo. Generally it met with great approval and in the next couple of hours many expressed thanks. However there are contentious issues which will now be debated in the small groups. In a way it could all be summed up by asking “are we about doctrine, or pastoral issues? Are we about changing the world by the power of the Gospel, or are we bowing to pressure to change the Gospel and Church teaching to suit the world?”. The next three days will be challenging to say the least.

The Synod for next year was also announced this morning, it will be from 4th – 25th October and the theme will be; “Family, Vocation and Mission in the Church and in the Contemporary World.”

With every blessing
