Cardinal Vincent Nichols gives us an exclusive update on the second week of discussions at the Family Synod in Rome.

Today we hear about the small group discussions and the dynamic and challenging debates.

Listen to the Cardinal talk about...

  • disagreements not divisions
  • response to the interim, or mid-term, report - the Relatio Post Disceptationem
  • the pastoral response to difficult situations
  • blowing a trumpet for marriage
  • the need to provide a clear presentation of the Church's teaching on marriage and family

All this and more in this candid and interesting six-and-a-half minute interview given in the garden of the Venerable English College in the heart of Rome on Friday afternoon, 17 October.

Duration: 6m 33s
