Synod on the Family Our Preliminary Report

Well, I just read through the document myself and while there are some good points, there are some points which are cause for concern.  I wish to review it more thoroughly before adding more of my own comments.  In the mean time, I am considering what others have to say as well.  Feel free to add comments to this posting and suggestions of other articles.

Polish bishops reject the "relatio" document.

Another report of the Polish bishops (Pope St. John Paul II's homeland) rejecting the "relatio" document.

Relatio Synod reports the Church must renew commitment to the family.
