It's official the Synod on the Family begins today and concludes in two weeks with a closing Mass. The beatification ceremony of Venerable Paul VI is also scheduled to take place this same day on October 19, 2014, at the conclusion of the III Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the family. What will happen at the Synod? Will Francis look to be shoring up his base of support among the bishops? Will we see cardinals Burke and Kasper duke it out? Will the rules for communion be changed? Are there other backroom dealings, which haven't been reported by media, to happen? What an interesting half month it is going to be!
Everything is up for discussion!
