CWN Editor's Note: “The fruits of the synodal process under way are many, but so that they might come to full maturity, it is necessary not to be in a rush,” Pope Francis said on October 16, following his Angelus address.

“Therefore, in order to have a more relaxed period of discernment, I have established that this Synodal Assembly will take place in two sessions,” he continued. “The first from 4 to 29 October 2023, and the second in October of 2024. I trust that this decision will promote the understanding of synodality as a constitutive dimension of the Church, and help everyone to live it as the journey of brothers and sisters who proclaim the joy of the Gospel.”

    An extension only allows more mischief to enter and spread through the Church.
