Cardinal calls for action on implementing Amazon synod – The Catholic Sun

VATICAN CITY (CNS) — Nearly two years after the conclusion of the Synod of Bishops for the Amazon, the Catholic Church in the region must implement the recommendations made, said Brazilian Cardinal Claudio Hummes, president of the Ecclesial Conference of the Amazon. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, there have been many interviews, documents and meetings “to reflect and discern about ‘what we should do,’” the cardinal said in a statement published July 22 in L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper. “That is very important; however, it is not enough,” he said. “Instead of asking ourselves only what we should do, how to do it, when will we do it, let us see and promote what we are doing and what we did yesterday.” Cardinal Hummes served as relator general at the 2019 synod, which reflected on “Amazonia: New paths for the church and for an integral ecology.”
