ASIA/JORDAN – a “Synodal Questionnaire” for Catholics in the Hashemite Kingdom
Amman (Fid Hashemite Agency prepared with the aim of collecting the ideas, contributions and considerations of baptized Catholics of the Hashemite Kingdom on certain pastoral issues at the heart of the synodal process undertaken within the Catholic Church, in view of the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, scheduled for Rome in October 2023 and dedicated to the theme “for a synodal Church: Communion, participation and mission”. The initiative also aims to reinforce the perception that an authentic synodal journey involves participation and involvement of all the baptized, and this journey must be spared the risk of being reduced to a mere stopover for individuals and elite groups absorbed full-time in activities promoted by ecclesial organizations and structures.
The Questionnaire – reports the Arab information site abouna.org – is divided into a series of questions aimed at bringing out the questions, expectations and proposals of each baptized person in relation to his link with the ecclesial community, the dynamics of mission and the proclamation of the Gospel, initiatives of charity and forms of exercising authority in the Church.
