Dialogue in lieu of Monologue
The global synodal process on “Communion, Participation, and Mission” that the Catholic Church is undertaking over the next two years kicked off in October.
Bishop Hicks and the Diocese of Joliet hosted our inaugural Mass, initiating the diocesan phase, on 10/17/2021.
Let us listen to Bishop Hicks’ homily on the Synod through the lens of making a shift towards mutual listening by dwelling in the dialogue itself.
Please proceed to this link to our Diocesan page where Bishop Hicks and his Diocesan Pastoral Council lay out the framework of the process https://bit.ly/DOJSynodPage
You can also check out his monthly column here https://olmercy.com/bishophicksmonthlycolumn/
Let us be in prayer for Bishop Hicks and all the Bishops, and parishes, for blessings upon the preparation for the Synod of Bishops, and that the dialogue of those participating in the pre-synod process will bear great fruit for the salvation of souls.
