“The General Synod is primarily an assembly that acts as a consultative body to help the Superior General. It will examine the programmes proposed by the General Chapter and evaluate their implementation. Further, it will suggest initiatives to keep the Congregation continually up to date; it will propose means for settling problems in a spirit of brotherly harmony, and will call the attention of the various Provinces to their duties towards one another.” Passionist Constitutions, 144.
