New Zealand particpants will be sending posts from the Synod on Marriage and the Family in Rome this month.
Here is a post from Bishop Charles Drennan.
A synod is a process more than an outcome. It’s vitally participatory. It’s a collegial experience. That’s partially why it’s so wearying yet invigorating too. And all this, yes, cum petro but finally sub petro, and the Holy Spirit.
So let’s imbibe some of the successor of Peter’s own concluding words:
Everyone rose from their chair and clapped – a few less vigorously than most – but all very much aware that ‘Peter’ had spoken. Dixit. Then, finally, we chanted the Te Deum laudamus, Thee, O God, we praise, and left with hearts brimming with hope.
Bishop Charles Drennan is Bishop of Palmerston North.
