What does he mean by “A pastoral care that is synodal”? In the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation (which can be found on this link at the Vatican site) we’ll get the viewpoint of Pope Francis. We might as well begin reading:
203. I want to state clearly that young people themselves are agents of youth ministry. Certainly they need to he helped and guided, but at the same time left free to develop new approaches, with creativity and a certain audacity. So I will not attempt here to propose a kind of manual of youth ministry or a practical pastoral guide. I am more concerned with helping young people to use their insight, ingenuity and knowledge to address the issues and concerns of other young people in their own language.
Sounds like peer ministry. Any other comments?
