Pope Francis called a special Synod in Rome on marriage and the family in the context of the new evangelisation. The first session was held last October, and widely reported.
The second session will be held in October 2015. In preparation for this session, a working document – based on the first session held this year – has been circulated by the Vatican for consultation.
The Vatican has given Catholics around the world the opportunity to comment on the Lineamenta (or working document ) for the second Session of the Synod on marriage and the family in the context of New Evangelisation.
The Vocation and Mission of the family in the Church and contemporary world - Lineamenta can be downloaded here.
