XIV Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops - 'The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and Contemporary World' - Lineamenta
This link will take you to the preparatory document for the 2015 Synod, including a long and rather detailed questionnaire, on the Vatican website.
If you are willing to share some or all of your responses to the Vatican questionnaire on this website as a resource for others, you can download a Word version of the questionnaire here. Please email your completed questionnaire as a Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating whether or not you prefer to remain anonymous if all or some of your responses are published on this website.
We hope to share different theological reflections and responses to the questionnaire in the Lineamenta. Moral theologian Joseph Selling, Emeritus Professor at KU Leuven, has written a theological analysis of all the questions in the document as a resource for study and debate, which you can access at this link. As with all materials and links, this is an individual contribution that does not necessarily represent the views of other members of the Network.We shall be adding materials from a range of different perspectives over the coming weeks.
