CWN Editor's Note: In an audience with the bishops of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, who are gathered in Rome to conduct their synod, Pope Francis said that a synod should not be viewed as a sort of parliament or a board of inquiry. “If there is no Holy Spirit, there is no synod,” he said. “If the Holy Spirit is not present, there is no synodality.”
