Bishops take a break from the Synod during the weekend

After a week of testimonies and debates, all the Bishops and experts taking part in the Synod will be taking a break. This weekend, only the General Relator will have a full schedule.  On Monday October 13th, Hungarian Cardinal Peter Erdí¶ will report on the discussions, by reading the so called "Relatio post disceptationem.â?  He will summarize the topics discussed and conclusions reached during the first week of meetings. The documents are usually described as a description on the route of the Synod. Pope Francis will not change his schedule. On Sunday at 10 am he will preside over a thanksgiving Mass in St. Peter's Basilica, for the canonization of Saints: Francis of Laval and Maria dellâ??Incarnazione Guyart Martin.  Afterward, at 12 pm, he will pray the Angelus with thousands of pilgrims in St. Peter's Square.
