Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Peace and well-being to you and your loved ones. We have begun our Diocesan phase of the worldwide Synod on Synodality! Let us continue to pray that this time of shared dialogue and journeying together in faith will be illuminated by the Holy Spirit, which guides us and calls us in the building of God’s kingdom here in the Diocese of San Bernardino. We began our local synodal journey with an Opening Mass on October 17. More than a 1,000 brothers and sisters came to Queen of Angels Church to share in this blessed liturgy, and many more have watched the video recording of the Mass on our diocesan YouTube channel. One of the most beautiful elements of this Opening Mass was its expression of some of the different cultures in the Diocese, especially those that may not be as familiar to many of us...
The Synod offers us the opportunity to become a Church of closeness, that does not stand aloof from life, but immerses herself in today’s problems and needs, bandaging wounds and healing broken hearts with the balm of God.Pope Francis
