The Misplaced Priorities of Youth Synod Organizers

. . .reading through the Instrumentum Laboris (IL), the working document for the Youth Synod, one gets the impression that the biggest challenge young people face in life is discovering their sexuality.  Fortunately, the Synod Fathers stand ready to “accompany” youth on their journey of self-discovery wherever it may lead.  The bishops have a particular solicitude for LGBT youth who “face inequality & discrimination” because of “sexual orientation” (48). . .
