Preparatory Document Synod of Bishops for full text. Published 7th Sept.: Pope Francis calls the Church to ‘this path of Synodality which God expects of the Church of 3rd Millenium’. He outlines 3 processes so that we can live Communion, achieve Participation and open up to Mission. This is our challenge as we can journey together.

No one can be saved alone; we can only be saved together.’ {Fratelli Tutti 3 Oct. 2020} To achieve God’s dream for His People, requires listening to the ‘whispers’ of the Holy Spirit. Like the wind, it blows where it will.  ‘Synodality’ represents the main road for the Church as called to renew herself under the action of the Holy Spirit and by listening to the Word of God.

COVID-19 momentarily revived the sense that we are a global community, all in the same boat, where one person’s problems are the problems of all. At the same time, the pandemic has also made the already existing inequalities explode. We as followers of Christ, are continually challenged to take on the pain of our brothers and sisters wounded in their flesh and in their spirit.

First millennium ‘journeying together’ [Synodality] was the ordinary way in which the church acted. Saint John Chrysostom (349-407) said that “Church and Synod are synonymous’. All are called to listen to each other and to the Holy Spirit, Spirit of Truth, in order to know what the Spirit is saying to us now. This same Spirit works in the mission of Jesus, was promised to the Apostles and to all generations of Disciples who listen to Word of God and put it into practice.

Consulting the People of God is key to the process of reading the signs of the times in which we as the Church exist. Enlightened by the Word of God, grounded in Tradition, this synodal path is rooted in the concrete life of the People of God. The fundamental question that guides consultation of the People of God, is the following: How is ‘journeying together’ happening today in your particular Church? What steps does the Holy Spirit invite us to take in order to grow in our ‘journeying together’?

The purpose of this consultation is to gather the wealth of the experiences of Church being lived in local situations. This will involve the Faithful with their Pastors. Each local congregation is best placed to design how best to do this consultation. The contribution of bodies such as the Parish Pastoral Council is specifically requested. [Doc: No. 31]

The purpose of the Synod consultation of local churches is not to produce documents. It is “to plant dreams, draw forth prophecies and vision, allow hope to flourish, inspire trust, bind up wounds, weave together relationships, awaken a dawn of hope, learn from one another, create a bright resourcefulness that will enlighten minds, warm hearts and give strength to our hands.” [Pope Francis at Synod of Bishops on Young People, 3rd October 2018).

Fr Pat before end of Oct. will go to Mount Argus to continue his ministry in Dublin. Fr Martin Coffey, C.P. is appointed to St Joseph’s, but due to his position in Rome, he will begin at St Joseph’s in Oct. 2022. Until then, I (Aidan) will continue until Martin arrives. Thanks to Fr Pat for his dedicated ministry at St Joseph’s.
