Consultor of the Synod of Bishops - "It's going to be an exciting story."

The universal Church will have much to learn from the global south at the Synod of Bishops about Synodality in the fall of 2023. "It's going to be an exciting story," said Prof. Myriam Wijlens, whom Pope Francis recently appointed as a consultor of the Synod of Bishops. She considers Synodality - the common journeying of the People of God - to be an extremely urgent topic.

You can read the whole article about the interview of Prof. Wijlens with Grudrun Sailer from Vatican News here.
