Lineamenta for the Synod on the Eucharist -The Eucharist: Source and Summit of the Life & Mission of the Church

Preface & questions published June 2004, Introduction through Chapter 3 published June 2005, Chapters 4 through Conclusion will be published in the July-August 2005 Edition.

Pope Benedict XVI has announced that the dates for the Synod on the Eucharist will be October 2-23. The Synod of the world’s bishops will conclude the Year of the Eucharist that began October 7, 2004, as proclaimed by Pope John Paul II. The Lineamenta (or guidelines) for the forthcoming Synod on the Eucharist issued last summer provide an excellent resource for all Catholics for study and deepening our understanding of the Church’s teaching on the Eucharist. The document provides a concise but comprehensive theological survey of the Eucharist, drawing on a variety of historic patristic, papal and conciliar documents. It also describes the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy.

Last June, we published the preface and the questions at the end of the Lineamenta. In this issue appear the Introduction and the first three of the seven chapters, with the remaining chapters to appear in subsequent issues. (The complete document is accessible on the Adoremus web site Church documents section.)

The Instrumentum Laboris (working document) that the bishops will use during this eleventh Synod of Bishops will reportedly be published by the Holy See soon.
