Show Notes

On this weeks podcast we are joined by Bishop Brendan Leahy of Limerick to discuss the Synod on Synodality which was held in Rome during the month of October 2023 - the first phase of the meetings on the issue, the second phase is to be held in October 2024.

Bishop Brendan attended the Synod as one of the representatives of the Irish bishops and he takes us through his reflections and observations of the various events including the pre-synod retreat for the participants and then onto the sessions of the Synod themselves.  We discuss how the synod participants worked through the "conversations in the Spirit" methodology and ultimately the various topics and issues which came up in the final synthesis document. 

The final synthesis document is divided into three sections:

  • The Face of the Synodal Church
  • All Disciples, All Missionaries
  • Weaving bonds, Building Communities 

Each subsection is divided into the areas of convergence, areas or matters for future considerations, and agreed proposals.  Every one is encourage  to take up the document and work through it.
