Synod: Let young people describe their reality, walk with them to God

The Catholic Church’s youngest cardinal, 51-year-old Cardinal Dieudonne Nzapalainga of Bangui, Central African Republic, said the key question before the Synod of Bishops is: “What is God trying to tell us through young people?”

Finding better ways to pass the faith on to younger generations is one part of the task, the cardinal told reporters on 6th October. The other part is to encourage them and support them in sharing the faith with others.

Participants in the synod of bishops – the 267 voting bishops, priests and religious brothers, as well as the 72 experts and observers – spent the evening of 5th October and the morning of 6th October getting to know each other in their small groups, which are divided by language.

The groups, taking what they hear in the synod’s general assembly sessions, are to make suggestions for a final synod document.

The Vatican does not publish the texts of speeches given in the sessions but allows the bishops to do so.
