Pope Francis granted a dispensation allowing Los to be ordained both a deacon and a priest in the same Mass.
The director of the apostolate for same-sex-attracted Catholics said the bishop was affirming Church teaching when he advised on social media that Catholics shouldn’t participate in ‘Pride Month’ celebrations.
The working document, which calls for “a Church with an indigenous face,” further recommends that the synod identify “an official ministry that can be conferred upon women, taking into account the central role they play in the Amazonian church.”
Pope Francis said Mass in Camerino, Italy, an area affected by the earthquakes which struck central Italy in 2016 and 2017.
