Abstract :
Pope Francis has repeatedly reflected upon the synodal nature of the Church, identifying synodality as a 'constitutive element' of the pilgrim People of God. Synodality is to be found at all levels of ecclesial life, beginning within the particular Churches. This study proposes that a synodal approach to the management of finances, especially in dioceses and parishes, will eliminate most instances of financial malfeasance.



Le pape François s’est exprimé à maintes reprises sur la nature synodale de l’Église, identifiant la synodalité comme un «élément constitutif» du peuple pèlerin de Dieu. On retrouve la synodalité à tous les niveaux de la vie ecclésiale, commençant par les Églises particulières. Cette étude propose qu’une approche synodale de la gestion des finances, en particulier dans les diocèses et les paroisses, permettrait d’éliminer la plupart des cas de malversations financières.
