The Synod on Synodality is a two-year process of listening and dialogue beginning
with the solemn opening in Rome on October 10, by Pope Francis. The synodal
process will conclude in 2023. A synod is a conversation about who and what we are
and what our experiences are.
Pope Francis invites the entire Church to reflect on a theme that is decisive for its life
and mission: “It is precisely this path of Synodality which God expects of the Church of
the third millennium.” The Synod is a process of spiritual and ecclesial discernment,
that unfolds in adoration, prayer and in dialogue with the word of God. Celebrating a
Synod means walking on the same road, walking together.
This journey, which follows in the wake of the Church’s “renewal” proposed by the
Second Vatican Council is both a gift and a task. By journeying and reflecting
together on the Church will be able to learn through Her experience, which processes
can help Her to live communion, to achieve participation, to open Herself to mission.
As we seek to encounter the Lord, you don’t have to go across the sea. You don’t have
to look up or down. Jesus is right with you, in your minds and hearts, if we are
attentive to His word before we start any conversation and then just see what happens.
Synodal can be explained as simply walking the path of faith together. We do it
through communion, participation, and mission. It is an opportunity for every
Catholic to listen to one another but above all to the Holy Spirit. Let us take this
opportunity to participate, engage and dialogue with our fellow Catholics. Let us also
use other opportunities the diocese will be introducing.Fr. Sibi Kunninu, MS
WHO ARE THE 4TH DEGREE?
They are the Knights on Main Street, the men you probably envision when someone says Knights of Columbus to you. They’re present in their distinct regalia at civic and Church events, acting as honor guards and color corps, or standing in respect at the funerals of members or during adoration of the Eucharist. But there is more to being a Fourth Degree member of the Knights of Columbus than a uniform. They are the men who have chosen to embrace the Order’s fourth principle of patriotism, the men who lead the efforts to reach out to veterans and active military and to embody the fact that one can be a faithful Catholic and also be a faithful citizen.When the Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882, three principles united its members: charity, unity and fraternity. At that time people feared that members of the Catholic faith owed their entire allegiance to the Church and could not be trusted as citizens of their country. Patriotism was added to the Order’s principles in 1900, based on the idea that Knights are loyal to both God and country. Members who wish to live out patriotism together can join “the Fourth Degree.” Members of this degree have the special honor of holding the title “Sir Knight,” participating in color and honor guards and organizing programs that promote Catholic citizenship.
