Synod working to boil down discussions into propositions for approval
October 20, 2010
The leaders of the Synod of Bishops—the relator general and the prelates designated to report from each of the small discussion groups—have begun formulating a series of propositions for the approval of the entire Synod.
The Synod for the Middle East did not meet in a plenary session on October 20, allowing time for the smaller working group to distill a series of propositions out of the issues that have arisen during the general discussions. These propositions will be presented to the entire body for approval. The approved propositions are used by the Pope as the basis for an apostolic exhortation that summarizes and concludes the work of the Synod.
