Synodality: A process committed to transformation
The Australasian Catholic Record 95 (4):412 (2018)
AbstractRoper, Elissa The contemporary Catholic Church is experiencing a breakthrough into a fuller stage of self-understanding, and of self-appropriation as the Body of Christ, known as 'synodality'. It is an opening to the possibility of a new experience of transformation on all levels of being Church. Synodality is being promoted and provoked by the papacy of Pope Francis, which has been accompanied by the progressive uncovering of sexual abuse within the Church, prevalent and deeply wounding. Both synodality and the scandal of abuse demand the transformation of all members, processes and structures of the Church.
