CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis laid a heavy emphasis on the question of synodality in an October 7 address to the Joint Orthodox-Catholic Working Group. He said that “just as the primacy presupposes the exercise of synodality, so synodality entails the exercise of primacy.” The two concepts, he said, “are not competing principles to be kept in balance, but two realities that establish and sustain one another in the service of communion.”
