The Lord expects "synodality" of the Church in the third millennium, Francis told the International Theological Commission (November 29).
He thanked the Commission for a recent document on synodality,
“Today it’s thought that synodality is (...) to conduct a survey of opinions: ‘What do you think about women priests?’ Mostly it’s like this, is it not?”
Francis criticised therefore what he did himself at the Amazon Synod, where handpicked Fathers were asked: “What do you think about women deacons?”
