  • Description

    THE WORLD SYNDD OF ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS WOUND UP ITS FOUR WEEKS OF DISCUSSIONS AT THE VATICAN ON SATURDAY.

    AND POPE PAUL WARNED THE 200 BISHOPS PRESENT THAT DESPITE THE VALUE OF THESE DISCUSSIONS HE COULD NOT ACCEPT ALL THE OPINIONS EXPRESSED.

    IN A 3000-WORD ADDRESS AT THE CLOSE OF THE SYNOD, THE 77-YEAR-OLD PONTIFF THANKED THE BISHOPS FOR WHAT HE CALLED THEIR RICH REFLECTIONS, SUGGESTIONS AND PROPOSALS.

    BUT IN POINTING OUT THE NEED TO ENSURE THAT LOCAL CHURCHES DID NOT GO TOO FAR IN ADAPTING TO LOCAL CONDITIONS AND CULTURES, HE ADDED IT WOULD BE DANGEROUS TO SPEAK OF DIVERSIFIED THEOLOGIES AND THAT THE CONTENT OF THE FAITH IS EITHER CATHOLIC OR IT IS NOT.

    DESPITE THESE RESERVATIONS, THE PONTIFF TOLD DELEGATES THAT THE PREDOMINANT FEELING WAS ONE OF DEEP SPIRITUAL HAPPINESS.

    HE ADDED THAT HIS OVERALL EVALUATION OF THE SYNOD'S WORK WAS A POSITIVE ONE, BUT HE CONCEDED THAT DELEGATES HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO END THEIR DISCUSSIONS WITH AS CONCRETE A RESULT AS HAD BEEN HOPED WHEN THE SYNOD STARTED ON 27 SEPTEMBER.
