Synod ‘spiritual assistant’: year between synods will be like a pregnancy

Father Timothy Radcliffe said yesterday that “the most fertile time” of the Synod on Synodality will be the months of “active waiting” leading up to the final 2024 synod assembly. Radcliffe likened the months of waiting between the two synod assemblies to “a pregnancy.” He said it will probably be “the most fertile time of the whole synod, the time of germination.”
