Synod secretary: don't expect change in Church teachings
Catholic World News - June 27, 2014
At a Vatican press conference introducing the instrumentum laboris that will be the basis for discussion when the Synod of Bishops meets in October, the special secretary for the Synod meeting confirmed that there is no movement to change the teachings of the Church on marriage.
“The doctrine of the Church is not up for discussion,” Archbishop Bruno Forte of Chieti-Vasto, Italy, told reporters. He said that the “pastoral application” of Church teachings—the most effective ways to promote those teachings—would be the Synod’s greatest challenge.
