The General Secretariat for the Synod of Bishops presents the base text and “vademecum” – or handbook – to guide the journey of the Synod on Synodality.
In this light, the objective of the current Synod is to listen, as the entire People of God, to what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church. We do so by
listening together to the Word of God in Scripture and the living Tradition of the Church, and then by listening to one another, and especially to those
at the margins, discerning the signs of the times. In fact, the whole Synodal Process aims at fostering a lived experience of discernment, participation,
and co-responsibility, where a diversity of gifts is brought together for the Church’s mission in the world.
