At the closing of the first session of the Synod of Bishops on Synodality last 29 October 2023, our Redemptorist confreres, who participated, conveyed us a message:
“Now, the challenge for all of us is to walk in a Church that succeeds in living synodality. The challenge for those who worked within the Synod is to take this out of the hall, to our local Churches”.
For those who wish to review the contributions of our Redemptorist confreres present at the Synod of Bishops: Cardinal Joseph Tobin, Archbishop of Newark (U.S.A.) and Father Vimal Tirimanna, invited Professor of the Alphonsian Academy, we offer this news listing published by Scala News:
