Pope Francis, Addressed the Faithful of Rome, 18th September 2021
"A synodal process is about to begin, a journey in which the whole Church is engaged around the theme:
“For a Synodal Church:
Communion, Participation, Mission”
Three phases are foreseen, which will take place between October 2021 and October 2023.
This itinerary was thought out as dynamism of mutual listening. I want to stress this: a dynamism of mutual listening carried out at all levels of the Church, involving all the People of God".
