At the Synod, among this year's discussions are the following:
-- How can the church educate people to listen to the word of God?
-- How can the church promote "lectio divina," the prayerful reading of the Bible?
-- Would it be helpful to have a compendium or other practical manual to help priests and deacons write and present their homilies?
-- Is there a need to revise the lectionary of Mass readings?
-- What can the church do to better emphasize the connection between the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist at Mass?
-- What should the church do to improve the translation and distribution of Bibles, especially for the poor?
-- What can be done to help people understand that reading and interpreting the Bible must take into account the literal meaning of the text, the spiritual meaning of the text and the traditional teaching of the church?
-- Would it be a good idea for the church to sponsor a world congress on the word of God?
-- What steps can be taken to ensure that the Scriptures become a more important part of the search for Christian unity and the church's dialogue with the Jewish people?
-- What should the church and its members do to ensure that a biblical spirit animates all its pastoral efforts?
-- How can the church reconcile the practice of interreligious dialogue with the dogmatic affirmation that Christ is the one savior of humanity?
-- How can art, poetry, the Internet and other media be used to cultivate greater knowledge of the word of God?
This is a good suggestion from Karl Anderson - put a compendium together that ties the Readings with the Catechism.
