The commitment to build a Synodal Church to which all are called – each with his or her role entrusted to them by the Lord is loaded with ecumenical impications. For this reason, talking recently to a delegation of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, I reiterated the conviction that “careful consideration of how to articulate in the Church’s life the principle of collegiality and the service of the one who presides offers a significant contribution to the progress of relations between our Churches.” 

I am convinced that in a synodal Church, the exercise of the Petrine primacy will receive greater light. The Pope is not, by himself, above the Church; but inside it as one baptized among the baptized, and within the College of Bishops as Bishop among Bishops; as one called at the same time as Successor of Peter – to lead the Church of Rome which presides in charity over all the Churches. Vgl. H. Ignatius van AntiochiĆ«, Brief aan de Romeinen, Epistula ad Romanos. Proemio: PG 5, 686

While I reiterate the need and urgency to think of ” a conversion of the papacy,” Vgl. Paus Franciscus, Postsynodale Apostolische Exhortatie, Over de verkondiging van het Evangelie in de wereld van vandaag - Naar aanleiding van de Bisschoppensynode 2012 over de nieuwe evangelisatie, Evangelii Gaudium (24 nov 2013), 32 I gladly repeat the words of my predecessor Pope John Paul II: “As Bishop of Rome I know well […] that the full and visible communion of all the communities in which, by virtue of God’s faithfulness, his Spirit dwells, is the ardent desire of Christ. I am convinced that you have in this regard a special responsibility, above all in acknowledging the ecumenical aspirations of the majority of the Christian Communities and in heeding the request made ??of me to find a form of exercise of the primacy which, while in no way renouncing what is essential to its mission, is nonetheless open to a new situation.” H. Paus Johannes Paulus II, Encycliek, Over de inzet voor de oecumene, Ut Unum Sint (25 mei 1995), 95

Our gaze extends also to humanity. A synodal church is like a banner lifted up among the nations Vgl. Jes. 11, 12 in a world that even though invites participation, solidarity and transparency in public administration – often hands over the destiny of entire populations into the greedy hands of restricted groups of the powerful. As a Church that “walks together” with men and women, sharing the hardships of history, let us cultivate the dream that the rediscovery of the inviolable dignity of peoples and the exercize of authority, even now will be able to help civil society to be founded on justice and fraternity, generating a more beautiful and worthy world for mankind and for the generations that will come after us. Vgl. Paus Franciscus, Postsynodale Apostolische Exhortatie, Over de verkondiging van het Evangelie in de wereld van vandaag - Naar aanleiding van de Bisschoppensynode 2012 over de nieuwe evangelisatie, Evangelii Gaudium (24 nov 2013), 186-192 Vgl. Paus Franciscus, Encycliek, 'Wees geprezen' - over de zorg voor het gemeenschappelijke huis, Laudato Si' (24 mei 2015), 156-162
