During the diocesan stage of the Universal Synod last year, participants called for courses, resources, and dynamic spaces where they could explore or deepen their own faith, their spirituality, and their understanding of Scripture on a more personal level as well as on an academic level. One initiative being made available in 2023 is a series of short video reflections on the Sunday Gospel each week.
“Synodal Sundays” was launched on 1 January this year with a 3 minute video reflection on the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God from the General Secretary of the Synodal Pathway, Ms Julieann Moran. The reflections are being offered throughout the year by lay men, lay women, priests, religious and bishops.
A new reflection appears each Thursday on the homepage of the Synodal Pathway website (www.synod.ie) and its YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/@irishsynodalpathway3254) on the theme of synodality in light of the upcoming Sunday Gospel. They can also be found on the Synodal Pathway’s social media platforms each Sunday.
