A leading German Catholic bishop welcomed Friday the new multi-year format of the synod of synodality, saying that it shares a common goal with his country’s “Synodal Way.”
Bishop Georg Bätzing said that the new global “process” for the synod unveiled in Rome May 21 would be “complemented” in Germany by the Synodal Way.
“The process of a global Synod of Bishops announced today in Rome will be complemented in Germany by the Synodal Way already embarked upon,” the chairman of the German bishops’ conference said.
“We will also contribute our experience of the Synodal Way to the active participation in the preparation and implementation of the Roman Synod of Bishops.”
