With the Synod on the Family, Cardinal Kasper and others have raised the possibility of moving the Catholic Church toward a more “pastoral” and “merciful” approach to marriage and the family.

We have developed this survey to better understand synodal issues in light of the Gospel and Church teaching and to prepare people to speak intelligently about them to others.

This survey is not about getting the gut reaction of people, revealing their underlying attitudes (often formed by the media or by others with strong opinions), but to help people to go deeper into the issues debated.
