Intervention of Mons. Patrick Altham KELLY, Representative of the Bishops' Conferences for International Coordination of support of the Roman Catholic Church in the Holy Land (GREAT BRITAIN)



Mons. Patrick Altham KELLY, Archbishop of Liverpool, Representative of the Bishops' Conferences for International Coordination of support of the Roman Catholic Church in the Holy Land:

At the opening of the Synod, the Holy Father shared with us the inspiration and guidance given to this Synod by the teaching of the Council of Ephesus in the year 451: Mary Theotokos, Mary Mother of God.
This conviction, guaranteed by the Holy Spirit, demanded new ways of thinking. The encounter with the events of the Person, who is the Word made flesh, shattered previous forms of observing, understanding, judging and deciding.
The specific concerns emerging in this Synod may be more securely recognized, more coherently understood, more soundly judged, and so lead to more wholesome actions by recalling the teaching of the Council of Chalcedon in 451.
