VATICAN— As the Vatican summit on the future of Catholicism enters its final week, a top Asian cardinal stressed the importance of the legacy it will leave for the next generation.
Cardinal Charles Maung Bo of Yangon described the “Synod on Synodality” as a “long march of hope for all humanity” amid what he called “global turmoil”.
“Amidst this Synod, one of our grave concerns is the legacy we will leave for the next generation,” Cardinal Bo said in his homily during a Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica on Monday.
The president of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences (FABC) underscored that the church’s synodal journey is about “healing and reconciling” the world in justice and peace.
“The only way to save humanity and create a world of hope, peace, and justice is through the global synodality of all people,” Bo said.
