What is the synodal pathway?
The word “synod” evokes the image of “walking together on the way”. For the Church, it is a time-honored way of working out together the “navigation map” for the Church at particular times. Synodality is about the whole People of God helping each other to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church.
