Strength and experience of movements will be important in Great Continental Mission

.- The president of the committee charged with drafting the final document at the 5th General Conference of the Latin American Bishops’ Council, Archbishop Jorge Enrique Carvajal, said Tuesday the strength, capacity and experience of the movements would be essential for the Great Continental Mission.

In statements to CNA, Archbishop Carvajal said the new movements and communities “will have to help us in a special way in the missionary work as they have a lot of missionary experience.”

“The great majority of the new movements and communities are missionary and they must help us,” the archbishop said, adding that the bishops are counting on their “strength and missionary capacity.”

Commenting on the approval of the four-page final message, the archbishop said five bishops and an advisor made up the committee charged with overseeing the drafting of the document.  “We tried to capture what was happening in the assembly,” he explained, “and we received more than 380 interventions, which took more time to review than we had planned.”

Archbishop Carvajal said the purpose of the final message is to breathe “new life in Latin America,” to overcome the problems facing the region "with the light of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
