Looking Back and Going Forward
The church worldwide has been engaged with the process of synodality over the past few years. It is a major moment in the life of the Church. ‘Journeying together’ to discern the call of the Gospel for today is a joyful, challenging, exciting and uncertain journey. Maybe, even a little daunting. The Church has embarked on this journey with hope and with the conviction that it is a necessary journey if the Church is to be renewed and strengthened in its mission to proclaim and live the ‘good news’. Like all major moments in life it raises very important questions. How do we discern together? What is the methodology that best engages with the experiences of men and women of faith in different contexts and circumstances? What is the ‘sensus fidei’ and how can its richness be mined for the good of the whole faith family?
