Rector’s Talk - 27th September, 2023

Although the Instrumentum Laboris, or “working document,” for October’s Synod of Bishops makes clear that it “is not a document of the Church’s Magisterium,” the 50-page document undoubtedly does have something to say, propose, and arguably teach about the kind of synodal Church that Pope Francis has made such a priority of his pontificate. On the 27th of September, Fr. Aniceto Pereira the Rector of St. Pius X College, addressed the seminarians before they left for their short mid-term holiday. He elaborated on the 3 priority issues for the Synod — Communion, Mission and Participation. Liturgy should be at the center of our lives and the Eucharist should not remain as a mere ritual. This document is, of course, a work in progress as will be the Synod meetings in Rome. What remains central, however, is clear: the aim is evangelization, the way is synodality, and the result is the renewal of the Church imbued with both. Fr. Aniceto concluded his insightful talk with the Synod prayer: Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth and what is right. Amen
