June’s At the Foot of the Cross podcast is just creeping in at the end of the month. It’s a ‘mea culpa’ from the presenter who has been away for a few weeks.
This is very much a programme of accompaniment and encounter – very apt words for the synodal pathway we find ourselves treading.
Resident studio guest Canon Christopher Thomas, General Secretary of the Bishops’ Conference, joins us to discuss the working document for the first Synod meeting in Rome taking place in October. In the interests of managing expectations, this is an initial glance at the Instrumentum laboris. We will explore it further in the podcasts to come.
We also welcome the appointment of a new bishop for Hexham and Newcastle, the Right Reverend Stephen Wright, and preview an evangelisation conference taking place in Liverpool from 30 June to 2 July.
Plus we have an eye on Lisbon as the countdown begins to World Youth Day when the Pope Francis will join thousands of young people in Portugal’s capital.
