Cardinal Wuerl, in major address, summarizes synod discussion
Catholic World News - October 18, 2012
Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the relator-general of the Synod of Bishops for the new evangelization, has delivered the relatio post disceptationem (report after the discussion) on the synod’s eleventh day.
As he summarized the synod fathers’ contributions, Cardinal Wuerl proposed 14 questions that could be discussed by the assembled bishops during the following days. Among them were “How can the Church foster greater consciousness among all the baptized of their missionary and evangelizing responsibility?”, “Is now the time to give the catechist an instituted, stable ministry within the Church?”, and “In view of the diminished knowledge of the content of the faith and the lack of appreciation for the Gospel message, what new steps have been taken to promote clear, engaging and complete teaching, particularly to the young?”
