Biblical Resources for Synodality

Format: Texts & Image
Type: Scripture & Prayers
Organisation: Holy See

The Biblical Subgroup of the Spirituality Commission of the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops has prepared a resource entitled “Biblical Resources for Synodality,” which highlights how Scripture is at the heart of the synodal journey.
This publication offers examples of lectio divina, along with the search for synodality in Old Testament texts (Psalm 107, Joshua 24, Nehemiah 8:1-12), as well as the figure of Mary, icon of the synodal Church, as she sets out with the disciples or stays in prayer with the Apostles (Acts 1:13-14), bearing witness that she is the way to ecclesial communion (Acts 10:1-11:18). The booklet is currently available in English only, but will soon be available in other languages. Go to the document.
