Marian Approaches to Synodality

Josephine Lombardi

Synodality calls the Church to listen, understand, and act in a way that embraces people in the spirit and style of Mary, an exemplar for the process of synodality and women's leadership in the Church. This book explores the theme of the Synod on Synodality, "For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission," providing an overview of the main documents of the synodal process from a Marian perspective and a vision rooted in Vatican II. Mary, "she who knows the way," shows us how to accompany others, foster greater communion and participation, and renew our focus on our baptismal mission.

"Dr. Lombardi names Mary as a 'synodal way' and 'accompanying witness' to the spirit's guidance of the synodal process. Marian Approaches to Synodality tells us to listen to her son, to the spirit--essential for discerning topics like the role of women in the Church. Engaging in her review of Marian theology."
