The People of God and the Synodal Journey


  • Thomas Kollamparampil Dharmaram Vidya Kshetram


The Synod on Synodality is for a deeper reception of the communion ecclesiology of the II Vatican Council into the experiential modes and styles of Christian life in the world. Synodal mode has to be the essential style and structure of the Church in the third millennium. Hence, a rediscovery and re-launching of the synodal way has to be infused more into the ecclesial life at all levels and spheres for deeper communion, participation and successful mission. People of God, on their pilgrim journey through the history, have to be co-responsible in the evangelizing mission of the Church, through a Trinitarian communion, for fuller life and building up of the body of Christ, the Church, in the world.
