Synod - Which way is the wind blowing?


The application of the Second Vatican Council concept of  'elements of sanctification' from Lumen Gentium has now come to roost in the moral sphere:

During yesterday afternoon’s session, “it was underlined that even imperfect situations must be considered with respect: for instance, de facto unions in which couples live together with fidelity and love present elements of sanctification and truth,” the Vatican said in its summary. “It is necessary to truly love families in difficulty.” (source)
While is this is what has been said, it will be interesting to see what is decided.
