Publication of Preparatory Document for the November 2012 Synod of Bishops discussion on the “New Evangelization”
The Synod of Bishops today released a “lineamenta” in preparation for next year’s Synod of Bishops which Pope Benedict has directed towards a discussion of the “new evangelization.”
The document can be found at:
A lineamenta document “is a text written in preparation for the convocation of the special assembly of bishops, before a synod occurs. It is intended to encourage bishops to invite the participation of all in the Church so that they can enter into discussion and take a pastoral inventory.” [quote taken from Wikipedia].
I am still working my way through the text. More to follow.
