Letters from the Synod: October 17-18 [CH-UK]

Reports and commentary, from Rome and elsewhere, on the XIV Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops


Good old Cardinal Pell. He gives a positive reading on the synod in general and his fellow synod clerics. (That must have disappointed some at the Catholic Herald)

Cardinal Pell:

There’s a good atmosphere this time, although there are still significant differences on whether the Church is authorised to admit the divorced and civilly remarried to Holy Communion. The indissolubility of marriage has been massively endorsed. And when it comes down to it, I don’t think too many Synod fathers are going to want to be on the other side from Jesus on indissolubility or on the other side from St Paul on the conditions for worthily receiving Holy Communion.


I hope they won’t!
