Archbishop of Guadalajara to be co-president of Synod of Bishops

.- The Bishops’ Conference of Mexico announced this week Pope Benedict XVI has designated the Archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, to be co-president of the Synod of Bishops, set to begin this weekend in Rome. In addition, the names of other Mexican bishops who have been designated as delegates were also announced. They include Bishop Jose Guadalupe Martin Rabago, President of the Bishops’ Conference, Bishop Miguel Angel Alba Diaz of La Paz, Auxiliary Bishop Jose Trinidad Gonzalez Rodriguez of Guadalajara, and Bishop Juan Manuel Mancilla of Texcoco.  Pope Benedict also named two other cardinals of Africa and India to be co-presidents of the Synod along with Cardinal Íñiguez. 

The Synod, which will run until October 25, will bring to a close the Year of the Eucharist proclaimed by John Paul II.

The Mexican bishops said the “international exchange and debate will be important for attaining a more profound reflection on the faith and the practice of Eucharist life in the universal Church.”
