Lecture by Myriam Wijlens: Reflections on the Continental Stage of the Synod on Synodality
Reflections on the Continental Stage of the Synod on Synodality
“Enlarge the Space of your Tent” (Is. 54:2)
The 2021-2024 Synod entitled “For a Synodal Church: Communion – participation –mission” opened with a consultation in the different dioceses around the world in which Catholics worldwide were invited to participate. The outcomes were submitted, and after reflecting upon, presented in the Document for the Continental Stage: “Enlarge the Space of your tent” (Is. 54:2).
This document was returned to the faithful in the local churches for discernment within continental meetings to answer three questions: How does the document resonate with your experience? What tensions or divergences emerge as relevant for your continent? What questions and issues should be addressed in the session of the synod of bishops in October 2023? In February and March 2023 seven continental meetings have addressed these questions. In her lecture prof. Myriam Wijlens, reflects about the current process and its outcomes.
