Pope Francis intervenes at the synod, calling clericalism a ‘scourge’ that ‘enslaves’ God’s people

​Pope Francis told members of the synod on synodality that they should respect and honor the faith of all baptized Catholics, including the women, trusting “the holy, faithful people of God” who continue to believe even when their pastors act like dictators. “I like to think of the church as the simple and humble people who walk in the presence of the Lord -- the faithful people of God,” he told participants at the assembly of the Synod of Bishops Oct. 25.
