Asian Voices on Synod on Synodality

Synod on synodality calls us for listening together, discerning together, praying together. The word ‘together’ is very important in a culture of exclusion.

Pope Francis

“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 digital channels allow us to reach out, connect, and engage with the faithful in Asia, fostering a spirit of communion and solidarity.

Cardinal Sebastian Francis

Chairman FABC OSC

Synod on synodality is creating a culture of travelling together, discussing together, deciding together. This travel reminds that of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus. On discovering Jesus in the Eucharist, they return to Jerusalem and experience the Pentecost. The Synod is another way to the Pentecost. We have many difficulties on our journey, but the Synodal way is the only way of experiencing the Pentecost.

Archbishop Raphael Thattil

Major Archbishop of Syro-Malabar Church
