He’s the star of the Synod, and he’s only four months old. Little Davide Paloni has accompanied his parents to the sessions of the Synod, underlining the speeches, prayers and liturgy with his own utterances. A fitting contribution to a long assembly about the family.
Davide’s parents, Patricia and Massimo, are members of the Neocatechumenal Way and attend the Synod as auditors. The couple, who have eleven more children in addition to young Davide, have been living in Maastricht, Diocese of Roermond, since 2004, when Bishop Frans Wiertz invited them to serve the new evangelisation. They have been itinerant catechists for the past few years.
