Testigo

"Ustedes serán mis testigos."

(Hechos 1, 8)

El proceso preparatorio del Sínodo de los Obispos de la Amazonia contó con la participación de 87,000 personas que dieron testimonio de sus lamentos, esperanzas y sueños para sus comunidades y la Iglesia que aman.

En el sínodo en Roma, los obispos afirmaron repetidamente que las mujeres ya están haciendo el trabajo de diáconos en la región, y pidieron que este ministerio sea visto y reconocido.

El sínodo pidió formalmente compartir sus "experiencias y reflexiones" con una comisión papal sobre las mujeres y el diaconado, y el Papa Francisco respondió inmediatamente, diciendo:

"Recojo el desafío. Recojo el guante. Las mujeres han puesto un cartel: 'Por favor, escúchanos. Que se nos escuche'. Y recojo el guante".

Aquí nos reunimos para escuchar a las mujeres que sirven en el ministerio hoy y que están listas para ser recibidas como diáconos en la Iglesia. También compartimos oraciones y esperanzas para el discernimiento de nuestra Iglesia, mientras buscamos dar un testimonio colectivo del movimiento del Espíritu Santo.

“I do hope the Church ordains women to the diaconate soon. There is no reason why it should be postponed any longer, since women have done pastoral and spiritual ministry for many, many years! As a rural Pastoral Administrator, I have already carried out the ministry of a deacon.”
