The Catholic Church claims for itself the title of the true Christian Church founded by Jesus by the mandate he gave on various occasions to Peter, the first pope, and the other apostles, who were the first bishops. To them was entrusted the management of the Church in such a way that it would assist disciples, namely you and me, to find God in our lives and be faithful to his commandments. That is the mission of the Church; to assist each person to unity with God.
Through his promotion of a synodal Church, Pope Francis has shown that he is willing to hear the Holy Spirit speaking through each member of the Church. Society has undergone great change in recent decades and there is need for reform within the Catholic Church as well. This reform should include changes to those aspects of its teachings and practices that currently restrict the freedom of the Holy Spirit to give life to the Church.
