Pope Francis has presented synodality as the major organizational principle of the Roman Catholic Church. The article analyzes institutions in the three levels the Pope mentioned: the Particular Churches (Diocesan Synod), the Ecclesiastical Provinces and Regions (Particular Councils, Episcopal Conferences) and the Universal Church (Synod of Bishops).
