Querida Amazonia: A document of reconciliation

The pope’s Exhortation has arrived. It refers to the final document of the Amazon Synod on October 6-27, 2019 and does not draw from it any dramatic and disconcerting conclusions. “It is to be hoped,” Cardinal Müller writes, “that the interpreters of this document will refrain from unnecessary harshness and take up the concerns of the Holy Father like true sons and daughters of the Church in a spirit of agreement and collaboration.” [1]
