Author : Alphonse BORRAS
Fifty years after the Motu proprio Apostolica sollicitudo of Paul VI, this article reflects on the ecclesiological consequences of the creation of the synod of bishops: sensus fidelium and pastoral coresponsability, a dynamic in three moments from the expression of the synod (communio fidelium, communio ecclesiarum, communio episcoporum) and « collegial affectivity », to take up the words of Pope Francis.
Keywords : Synod of bishops | Ecclesiology | Sensus fidelium | Coresponsability
