BBC: Pope Francis opens Catholic Church synod on family life

SHARE

SHAFAQNA (International Shia News Association) Pope Francis has opened a gathering of more than 200 senior Roman Catholic bishops by urging them not to impose what he called “intolerable moral burdens” on believers.

The gathering, known as a synod, is discussing the Church’s position on controversial issues.

They will be joined by lay Catholics to debate abortion, contraception, homosexuality and divorce.

Caroline Wyatt reports from Rome.
