Synod hears draft of final propositions

Catholic World News - October 21, 2010

The Synod of Bishops met on October 21 in a plenary session, to hear a list of propositions that had been developed by the relator general as a proposed summary of the Synod discussions. The Synod fathers then met in small groups, arranged by language, to discuss the propositions.

The propositions—developed by the relator general in consultation with the appointed representatives of the different language groups—will now be discussed, debated, and amended as necessary to gain the approval of the Synod. As the meeting moves toward its conclusion this weekend, the participants will vote on the propositions and finally present them to the Pope as the basis for his apostolic exhortation on the Middle East.
