Polish bishops will oppose change in teaching at Synod
June 16, 2015
The Catholic bishops of Poland will oppose any change in Church teaching regarding marriage and sexuality at the October meeting of the Synod of Bishops, a spokesman has announced.
“There’s no support for change in Poland,” said Msgr. Jozef Kloch. Speaking after a meeting in which the Polish hierarchy discussed how they would approach the Synod discussions, he said: “Polish Church delegates will certainly stick to the understanding of Popes Paul VI and John Paul II.”
The Polish bishops’ spokesman said that there is “nothing to fear” from the Synod, voicing his confidence in Pope Francis. He said that the prospect of a lively debate should not be troublesome, since tense debates have been common in key deliberations by Church leaders—for example, in Vatican II.
