Synodality
A New Way of Proceeding in the Church

Rafael Luciani

During the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Institution of the Synod of Bishops, Francis described synodality as the new model of Church. He said that "a synodal Church is a Church that listens…in which everyone has something to learn." Listening reconfigures the whole process of interaction among all ecclesial subjects in a reciprocal and horizontal dynamics founded on the ecclesiology of the People of God. In this model, bishops should not only listen to the People of God but listen as part of the People of God. And what is heard should then find ecclesial channels and structures—or as Francis said, "concrete mediations"—that link it to ecclesial reforms.

Synodality represents a deepening of the ecclesiology of the People of God by which Francis opens a new phase in the reception of the Council. The book explores a new way of proceeding in the Church at all levels, and as "a constitutive dimension of the Church." This path calls for a reconfiguration in the relations, communicative dynamics, and structures of the current institutional model of the Church. We have the challenge to contribute to the building of this new way of being Church.

Texts Less Traveled
Exploring Hebrew, the Catholic Epistles and Revelation

Thomas D Stegman, SJ

The purpose of this book is to invite and assist readers to embark on a rewarding "journey" through texts in the New Testament that are "less trodden": the Letter to the Hebrews; James; 1 and 2 Peter; 1, 2, and 3 John; Jude; and Revelation. One reason these texts are less traveled is their placement in the New Testament canon. They are the final nine (of twenty-seven) writings in the New Testament.
Another reason is that readings from these texts are rarely the subject of preaching in the Church's Sunday Eucharistic liturgy.

Come and See
Discipleship in the Gospel of John

Sherri Brown

Come and See explores the invitations and imperatives embedded across the Gospel of John as the Fourth Evangelist draws audiences into his story of the good news. Through both narration and the direct calls of Jesus to those he encounters, characters in the Gospel and audiences of the Gospel are beckoned to deeper relationship with God through Jesus and challenged to open themselves to what God is doing in their lives right now. Indeed, Jesus' first words of the Gospel are the query to potential disciples, "What are you seeking?" This question sets the tone for the invitation offered as an imperative, "Come and see," made to all potential disciples (1:38–39). The two primary commandments presented across Jesus' ministry are to receive and believe Jesus as Christ and Son of God which is manifested in abiding and loving one another in community (1:12; 13:34–35). Further, Jesus summons those who challenge him to know the truth so that it will set them free (8:31–32; 19:37–38). Some respond positively, others do not, but the hope for those who do is to have life in Jesus' name (20:30–31).

Jesus' final challenge of the Gospel is for those who believe and love to "follow me." The purpose of the Gospel, therefore, is to prepare audiences to do just that.
