Vatican synod to reinforce Church teaching on the family

8 Jul

ICRadioJULY 8, 2014 — Patrick Novecosky, editor of this blog and Editor-in-Chief of Legatus magazine, was a guest on Iowa Catholic Radio in Des Moines, Iowa, this morning. He appeared on the Iowa Catholic Radio TODAY with host Jon Leonetti, Mark Amadeo, and Mary Sue Lone.

They asked Novecosky about the upcoming Extraordinary Synod on the Family being held at the Vatican from Oct. 5-19. About 150 heads of bishops’ conferences and leaders of Eastern churches aligned with Rome will attend to discuss the cultural challenges to Church teaching on the family.

Novecosky said that while the synod won’t change Church teaching on marriage and family, it will be a teaching moment, giving Catholics the opportunity to talk about the beauty of God’s plan for the family. It will also give the Church a chance to streamline its processes for Catholics seeking an annulment, he said.
