You've read the reports, here's the inside track on the Family Synod from Cardinal Vincent Nichols

17/10/2014 9:31 pm


In the last of his audio dispatches from Rome, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, representing England and Wales, gives us a fascinating, passionate, and in-depth summary of the two-week Vatican summit on family and marriage.

There's been a lot of commentary on the Family Synod but it's always best to hear from someone who was there and took part.

We caught up with the Cardinal just after the Synod's closing Mass that also saw the beatification of Pope Francis' predecessor, Blessed Pope Paul VI.

Recorded in Rome on Sunday afternoon, 19 October.

Duration: 7m 13s
