Witness to Hope

s1

This week  October 22) we celebrate the feast day of Pope St. John Paul II, who presided over the Catholic Church from 1978 to 2005. As pope, he visited 129 countries, advocating for peace and justice. He promoted ecumenical and interfaith initiatives. Alarmed at the tensions in superpower relations, Pope John Paul II summoned the spiritual energy of the world’s faiths, resulting in the historic interreligious World Day of Prayer for Peace, in Assisi, Italy, on October 27, 1986. John Paul II is also remembered for greatly improving relations between Catholics and Jews. He was the first pope to visit Rome’s main synagogue and the first to pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem; he also established diplomatic relations between the Holy See and Israel. Urging interfaith partnership with the Muslim world, Pope John Paul II visited the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, Syria – the first pontiff to visit and pray in a Muslim house of worship.

The Amazon: Its Peoples and Ecological Significance

s2

From October 6 to October 27, 2019, a Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon Region will take place in Rome, marking the Catholic Church’s most serious reentry into the ecological arena since Pope Francis issued “Laudato Si’“ (On Care for Our Common Home) in May 2015.

“Amazonia: New Paths for the Church and for an Integral Ecology“ seeks to identify new paths of evangelization, especially for indigenous people, and highlights the vital role the Amazon region plays in the health of the planet.

The central issues to be addressed are land use, biodiversity and the rights of indigenous people. The Amazon region spans 2.1 million square miles across nine countries, is home to 33 million people — of them, 3 million indigenous people representing 400 different tribes — and is the source of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water, one-fourth of all oxygen and more than one-third of global forest reserves.

The Pan-Amazonian Ecclesial Network (REPAM) was formed in 2014 to respond to the challenges facing the people of the Amazon and their natural environment. The network, which includes the nine countries of the Amazon (Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Venezuela, and Suriname), has played a central role in shaping the agenda for the synod.
