JUST TO REMIND EVERYONE: THE SYNOD IN ROME IS NOT A PARLIAMENT, IT SIMPLY ADVISES THE POPE JUST AS A PASTORAL COUNCIL SIMPLY ADVISES A PASTOR
On Saturday, the bishops will meet to hear the final draft and vote on the document paragraph by paragraph. There will also be a vote on the document as a whole. Thereafter the document will be presented to Pope Francis. Cardinal Gracious reminded the media that this document is intended for the Pope, to help and advise him. It is not being written for the world.
