03Feb Pope calls Italian church to synod – The Tablet

Taken from an article by Christopher Lamb in The Tablet:

During a meeting with a group of catechists from the Italian Bishops’ Conference in the Vatican, the Pope said the “process” for a national synod “must begin” and should start “community by community, diocese by diocese”.
