Cardinals and bishops from across the globe will soon be gathering at the Vatican, where they will have the first of two worldwide meetings for the synod. 

The October undertaking is meant to figure out how Catholics can grow together as a universal Church. 

However, the highlight of discussion is expected to be the perceived tensions between Pope Francis and a few American bishops.

The papal representative to the United States, Cardinal-elect Christophe Pierre, counters that the prelates are in communion with the pontiff.

According to some reports, the pope could impose pontifical secrecy on the synod meeting, keeping opinions, votes, and even the topics addressed, confidential.

National correspondent for The Tablet and Crux, John Lavenburg, joins Currents News to take a deeper dive into next month’s Synod on Synodality.
