Dr. John Grabowski, a theology professor at The Catholic University of America in Washington who was appointed to be an expert at the synod, said there's a need for a greater understanding of marriage as a sacrament, a reality addressed at the synod. He and his wife, Claire, parishioners of St. Ignatius in Ijamsville, serve on the Pontifical Council for the Family in Rome.

"The (synod's) focus was on how families can be active participants in the new evangelization," he said.

Grabowski noted that the final report of the synod carries no teaching weight. It's up to the pope to decide what to take from the report in any document he may produce.
