Post subject:  Up coming document


Last October all the bishops of the world gathered to discuss the Eucharist. I read all the working documents and it looked very exciting. They gave all their work to the pope this past spring and he has been adding his touches to the documents. Supposedly it is to be released in October. Although, if you remember his encyclical on "God is Love" took a lot longer than anyone anticipated.

Has anyone heard any rumors or news from Zenit about this new document? I am very curious and I can't wait for it to come out. A big problem: I think that whatever it says, it will promptly be ignored by all the priests of the world.

What are your hopes for this document?

What document is this, specifically? Is it on revising the liturgy?

One good hint about what it may contain would be in the Holy Father's book - Spirit of the Liturgy.

This document will be the final result of the Synod on the Eucharist that was held during October of last year. Typically such documents are made public on the 1 year anniversary of the synod - which will be next month.

Generally there is a pre-announcement of the press conference to present such a document a few days before its released. Nothing has been mentioned so far, but I'll let ya'll know when I hear more.
