7 October 2022, Praying with Pope Francis: an open church.

The open door of Mercy, Holy Family basilica, Zakopane, Poland.

We pray for the Church; ever faithful to, and courageous in preaching the Gospel, may the Church be a community of solidarity, fraternity and welcome, always living in an atmosphere of synodality.

Here’s a paragraph to ponder this month: it says more than Will T’s pontificating ever would, and cuts through all the long words above. It comes from two Anglicans, who probably know more about synods than we Catholics.

God is so annoying. God keeps calling from the edge, to say, “Is your world, is your church, big enough and complex enough to accommodate me? Only if you listen to my questions and allow yourself to be humbled and inspired by the universe my questions point to will your life be as wondrous as I made it to be.”
