Vatican Releases Final Report of the Synod of Bishops

“The 2015 Synod of Bishops on the family has submitted its work and the bishops have voted on a final document, which was given to Pope Francis. 270 cardinals, archbishops, and priests from around the world, joined by lay observers, discussed and debated a host of issues, including letting divorced and civilly remarried couples return to Communion, using less harsh language in reference to gays and lesbians as well as couples living together outside of marriage, preparing couples better for the challenges of married life, and supporting them more during marriage.” –

There are a number of websites available which will provide an excellent synopsis of this final report, if you won’t wish to read the entire document (provided at the link in .pdf format).
