CWN Editor's Note: At a February 16 news conference in Rome, organizers of the 2018 Synod of Bishops, which will focus on young people, outlined plans for a special pre-Synod meeting in March, at which young people will be asked for their ideas. Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, the secretary-general of the Synod, emphasized that the event is designed for “listening” to young people, especially to those in difficult circumstances.

    I am afraid that all questions and answers have been already set up for the Synod, along with its agenda and a diligently selected list of participants. Just as it happened last time. Should any post-Synodal Dubia arise, they will be dutifully ignored for the sake of greater "clarity."
