Christus Vivit 4: To Whom The Document Is Addressed

Remember to check Pope Francis’ Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation on this link at the Vatican site. Wrapping up the introduction to the document, we read:

4. I have let myself be inspired by the wealth of reflections and conversations that emerged from last year’s Synod. I cannot include all those contributions here, but you can read them in the Final Document. In writing this letter, though, I have attempted to summarize those proposals I considered most significant. In this way, my words will echo the myriad voices of believers the world over who made their opinions known to the Synod. Those young people who are not believers, yet wished to share their thoughts, also raised issues that led me to ask new questions.

That final synod document is here, in case you readers would like to reference it. A caution, though: a lot of “faithful” Catholics did not like some parts of it. That said, in Christus Vivit, we’ll get the pope’s view–what he considered important, not what he deemed questionable.

Any comments?
