The Synod on Synodality is a transformative process in which all the baptized are protagonists and discern together the calls of the Holy Spirit, uniting as a listening Church of participation and co-responsibility. The diocesan/national stage of the Synod has raised the voices of the People of God and the current continental stage is to deepen the fruits of this listening. Join us as Sr. Nathalie Becquart, XMCJ, echoes issues and challenges faced by the local churches to implement synodality while proposing a theological reflection on the synodal process.
