In occasione dell’apertura in Vaticano del “Sinodo delle Sinodalita‘” (17 ottobre 2021), il cardinale di New York Timothy Dolan ha posto candidamente ai presenti alla messa domenicale presso la Cattedrale di San Patrizio (N.Y.) la seguente domanda:
Cos’e’ la Sinodalita?
Ha soggiunto quindi di non sapere rispondere lui stesso e che risposta non la saprebbe, del resto, nemmeno San Francesco (oops|) “papa” Francesco! Per questo avrebbe infatti convocato il Sinodo: per farselo spiegare! (*)
Cosa dite, il card. Dolan stava parlando sul serio?
(*) What is Synodality?
If you find your mystified by the term “synodality,” you are not alone. During his homily for the opening Mass of the Synod in the Archdiocese of New York (Oct. 17, 2021), Cardinal Timothy Dolan candidly asked those in attendance at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral (NYC):
“Now, you ask, just what is synodality, of which St. Fran– [mistake] Pope Francis so often speaks? I don’t know if I completely understand it, everybody. And the Holy Father happens to be honest, as well, in admitting that neither does he have the full comprehension, which I guess is the reason he summoned us to this endeavor. He kind of wants us to join him in praying and listening and discerning, examining ourselves personally and the Church communally, to see, well, to see if we’re on the path that Jesus has set for His beloved Bride, His Mystical Body the Church.”
