Asian Voices on Synod on Synodality

To see the Church as God wants us to see!

Oswald Cardinal Gracias

Archbishop of Bombay, Synod Continental Assembly in Bangkok 2023

“Synodality is primarily an attitude, not a system or a structure.  It begins from one’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ, then freely, naturally, automatically manifests itself through one’s dedication to one’s parish, diocese, and the Church.”

Rev. Fr. Peter Lo

Taipei Archdiocese (Taiwan)

The synod of Bishops is a movement to work together as a united Church, both laity and clergy, according to our respective roles. Walking together, according to Pope Francis’ call, is a constitutive way for the Church, which allows us to interpret the existing reality with the eyes and heart of God. This method can help the Church, all of us, to participate and continuously renew ourselves amidst advances in science and technology, as well as increasingly complex societal problems.
