A response from Rite Issue
None of us are asking you bishops to conduct a survey according to any plan we put forward but to go by the Pope's instructions. And he meant that the issues facing Christian families should be found out from local situations and they should be publicly discussed and solutions sought after. That affirmatively means full participation of the laity. Any group of bishops or an ad hoc committee preparing a paper privately among themselves is against the will of the Pope. Any such report submitted at the Synod in Rome would bring nothing. It would surely be taken for a farce.
We would humbly request you to send us a copy of a questionnaire, if any, that you used for the study. If you don't have any such questionnaire, it is better that you make no claims of having done a study at all. Come on, let's face it.
