"This is not a parliament"   versione testuale
Opening the synod, Pope Francis warns its members against relegating the assistance of the Holy Spirit to the background

The first General Congregation of the XIV Ordinary Assembly of Bishops on the family began on October 5th with the report of the Secretary General of the Synod, Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri.
Before the Synod Fathers and Pope Francis, the Secretary recalled that this is a moment of grace for the Church, remembering the long journey that has led to facing this new insight into the contemporary world. The Holy Father, in his speech to the assembly, then highlighted the three keynotes that accompany their work and keep it from becoming a "parliament": these are, in particular, apostolic courage, evangelical humility and confident prayer.
Then, followed the Greeting by the President Delegate, Cardinal André Vingt-Trois, and the Introductory Report of the General Relator, Cardinal Péter Erdő.
