Synod head: critics can’t stop us

Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich of Luxembourg, the general relator of the 2021-2024 Synod on Synodality, made a number of bold statements this week including the assertion that Christian Europe is a “thing of the past.” He singled out critics of synodality, calling them afraid of a “Church on the move” and saying they “know they won’t be able to stop” the synodal experiment.
