Sorry, I was posting from an iPhone, it could have been longer.
Synodality works well in the Ukranian Catholic Church because the synod of bishops is not made up of “Vatican II Catholics”, unlike, say, Western Europe or North America.
Where more than half of the bishops are openly or covertly non-Catholic, synodality would be a mess.
Your follow up post makes even LESS sense.
First off, most of Vatican II's decrees deal exclusively with western practices, so they do not affect the eastern churches. However, Eastern Catholic bishops participated in and helped draft various Vatican II decrees. In fact, many eastern Catholics welcomed Vatican II because it meant western practices would no longer be imposed on their churches. (see https://melkite.org/faith/faith-worship/introduction ) The ONE decree of Vatican II that DOES directly affect eastern rite Catholics, "Orientalium Ecclesiarum", is applauded by most eastern Catholics.
Secondly, by definition, all Catholics bishops are "Vatican II" Catholics just like they're "Vatican I Catholics". In other words, bishops who remain faithful the Catholic Church accept Vatican II. They may not be HAPPY with everything Vatican II did, but they do acknowledge and tolerate it. Those who reject Vatican II and REFUSE to abide by it are Sedevacantists. In fact, a Ukrainian Catholic bishop was excommunicated for rejecting Vatican II and claiming the modern Popes are heretics for implimenting it. (Google Archbishop Michael Osidach)
