Church Governance by Mary McAleese, February 28, 2014

A strong call for a new, expanded way for consultation and decision-making in the church. The Synod remains a Bishops body but…read the last paragraph and Mary says it has to be the result of ‘…the kind of noisy, messy, argumentative Church the Vatican Council envisaged and that Francis seems comfortable with. Not top-down, control driven and passive, but a healthy, vibrant communio of the diverse engaged in active listening and talking top-down, sideways and bottom-up, unafraid of bad news, unafraid of healthy debate. Plugging that grass-roots debate into the episcopal conferences and plugging the episcopal conferences into the synod and plugging the synod into the College of Bishops with the Pope as its head has the potential for a vibrant communio in rich diversity, a real leaven in the maelstrom of life.’

This means some real collaboration of women and men in the church in the grassroots part of the debate going into the episcopal conferences.
