Cardinal at Vatican Family Synod: Catholic Church as 'Teacher' and 'Mother'

Oct 15, 2015, 04:23 PM

A few hours ago we caught up with Cardinal Vincent Nichols over the phone from Rome to talk about the Vatican Synod on family life.

The Cardinal describes discussions as a "rich and satisfying process" but explains how participants at the Synod were working to balance the understand of the Church as both 'teacher' and 'mother'.

Mercy, love, justice and truth are at the heart of what's being discussed - especially when talking about the most difficult family situations.
