with the Good News of Jesus!

Council 50 an ongoing process

 

The Synod showed, once more, the difficulties of our Church to move, despite the energy and the willingness of our Pope Francis, from a dogmatic view and behavior to a pastoral and evangelic approach for enlightening our 21st century world with the “Good News” of Jesus.

         

The flame of Vatican II needs being relighted in order to change into wonder the present disappointment of a larger and larger number of people who thus disregard our Church and, even worse, the “Good News” of Jesus.     

    

This is why, on line with the appeals of Pope Francis in his exhortation “Evangelii Gaudium”, several international and national associations of reform Catholics launched the project Council 50. They are also developing contacts with the Vatican in order to insure that Council 50 generates constructive responses to the appeals of our Pope Francis and resonates with his speech of October 28 to the meeting of international popular movements.
