Some Synod Scenarios: A View from the Amazon

September 14, 2021

The persistence of the Holy Spirit

This talk was given by Mauricio López Oropeza, who serves as Executive Secretary of the Pan-Amazonian Ecclesial Network and was recently appointed by Pope Francis as a member of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development. He was one of two non-Bishops on the council for preparing the Amazon Synod.

Opening the talk, Mauricio said:

“The most important thing, it’s about sharing and experience. This is not a scholar approach, but rather a lived experience. Here in Latin America, but certainly connected to what’s happening in the Church today, at a universal level, I am very glad to say that what we are going through as this moment is really all about the persistence of the Holy Spirit.”
