Inside the Synod with Washington, DC's, Cardinal Wuerl

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 10/21/15

Here's what he thinks about this synod compared to the last two

Salt & Light Media has published a series of short video interviews with participants of the 2015 Synod of Bishops on the Family. In this one Donald Cardinal Wuerl, the Archbishop of Washington, DC, talks about his presentation at the synod about absolution and the sacraments,  and the importance of being an inclusive community. He also speaks about how this synod compares to the two previous ones he participated in, saying the process has improved. Cardinal Wuerl became the sixth Archbishop of Washington in 2006 after serving previously as Auxiliary Bishop of Seattle and Bishop of Pittsburgh.
