The Catholic Foundation Pro Oriente, based in Vienna (Austria), and the NGO Choose Abundant Life, an ecumenical group of experts in theology and human and geopolitical sciences, promoted in early March in Rabweh (Lebanon) an Ecumenical Youth Seminar on the theme of Synodality, with the participation of young people from the Middle East. The organization made available on video the reflections of some of the young participants, specifically from the Evangelical, Maronite, Armenian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox Churches, in response to questions such as: “Do you consider your Church to be synodal? How?”, “What is the way back to synodality? All the young people point to the need for greater participation of the laity and youth in the decision making of their Church.
