In this month’s prayer intention, Pope Francis speaks about a Church that is “open to everyone.”
He talks of what it means to walk together, which is “what God expects of the Church of the third millennium.”
“It means listening to each other in our diversity and opening doors to those outside the Church. It’s not about gathering opinions, nor holding a parliament,” said Pope Francis.
He said the synod isn’t a survey. “It’s about listening to the protagonist, the Holy Spirit. It’s about praying. Without prayer, there will be no Synod.”
