Synod 2023: Communion, Participation, Mission.

Sunday Gospel The relationship that a disciple has with Christ is deeply personal. Christ calls us in a unique way, it is an exclusive union that means Christians should compare themselves with each other. That reality is good news because so often we fall into the trap of thinking that we are either better or worse than others. We are called and chosen to live our own vocation and if we can be authentic about our way of living, the door of life will be opened to us and we will be recognised by the Lord.

Synod 2023 The Synodal Process has been conducted across the Church in Ireland. The publication the National Synthesis is the fruit of a wide-ranging process of listening and consultation drawing on the syntheses produced by the 26 dioceses in Ireland, as well as those submitted by religious congregations and other interested groups. The National Synthesis will be forwarded to Rome as part of the worldwide synodal process of listening and discernment launched by Pope Francis in October 2021 and which will culminate in the General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in Rome in 2023.
