In a video message on Thursday, Pope Francis encouraged the Pontifical Commission for Latin America to continue its mission at the service of the Church in Latin American Church and of Hispanic ministry in the United States and Canada.
The pontifical commission is called to "a service, a diakonia, which should mainly show the affection and attention that the Pope has for the region" and explained that this consists in a "service that helps the various dicasteries to act in synergy and better understand the Latin American social and ecclesial reality,” the pope said May 26 to the plenary assembly of the dicastery.
In addition, the Pope urged the members of the pontifical commission to continue promoting “Hispanic pastoral car in the United States and Canada, in communion with the universal Church.”
“I am convinced that … the Church in Latin America and the Caribbean has made 'the path by walking,' that is, it has shown that a correct interpretation of the conciliar teachings implies relearning to walk together,” the pope affirmed.
