In the March issue of The Synodal Times, we report on the Continental Assembly of the Synod that took place in Prague in the Czech Republic in early February. Our correspondent Brandon Scott was pleased to attend this monumental gathering with representatives of 39 European Episcopal Conferences present. Our 10-page coverage includes interviews and analysis of the outcomes by Gerry O’Hanlon and Prof. Eamonn Conway.
We take a look at the Synod proceedings in England, Wales and Scotland as we ask the question – are Catholics there disappointed with the lack of Synodal discussions?
We also circle back to the looming issue of abuse in the Church and its organisations with a report on the investigation into claims made against L’Arche founder Jean Vanier.
Scottish Church abuse whistle-blower and author Brian Devlin writes for us in this issue as well, as he asks ‘Do we get the bishops we deserve?’ in a thought-provoking piece.
Owen O’Sullivan writes on the contentious issue of homosexuality and the Church, while Rafael Luciani continues his series on Synodality.
