The general secretary of the Synod of Bishops, Cardinal Mario Grech, has praised the Liverpool Synod for modelling the synodal process by walking together, listening and discerning.

In a message to the synod, Cardinal Grech said: “I am convinced that during this synodal experience you have learnt that although you were asked to take a ‘vote’, the synod is neither a parliament nor a convention but, as Pope Francis insists, it is ‘an expression of the Church’. It is a Church that walks together and reads reality with the eyes of faith and the heart of God.”

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, with the Universe media group closing, my CT column is at an end.

However….

For the last few weeks, La Croix international website has been carrying my pieces. This is the web presence linked to the French paper La Croix. The English language text is edited by Robert Mickens who is based in Rome.

I have now arranged to write a weekend column for La Croix, the first one of which is attached. Some of you on this circulation list I know subscribe to La Croix so you might pick my articles directly. Either way, I hope you will continue to enjoy your weekly read.
