There has been lots of Sturm und Drang in the media over the last three weeks in Catholic circles because of the Synod of Bishops in Rome. This seems to have been studied and analysed and haruspicated by European vaticanisti with an intensity that American and British journalists save for national elections.
I have always been bemused at the number of religion correspondents in the European press -- it seems all out of proportion to the number of people who declare that they are "religious". There's probably a book in that, or at least an article. George Weigel, a notable American expert on these matters, has wriitten a summary of the achievements of the Synod. Read all about it here.
