German bishops to press ‘binding assembly’ plans despite Vatican caution
September 23, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: The Catholic bishops of Germany will vote this week on a “substantially unchanged” plan for a synodal assembly that will vote on controversial doctrinal questions, the Catholic News Agency (CNA) reports, despite Vatican cautions. A source tells CNA that Cardinal Reinhard Marx failed to secure “an unambiguous sign of support” from Pope Francis, but the cardinal has told colleagues that “the misunderstandings are resolved.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
