Through a note, Pope Francis has canonically erected the Ecclesial Conference of the Amazon (CEAMA). As the note says, "the Final Document of the Synod on Amazonia, No. 115, proposed the creation of a 'permanent and representative episcopal body to promote synodality in the Amazon region'. During an Assembly held from June 26-29, 2020, the Presidents concerned decided to request the Holy See for the permanent creation of the Ecclesial Conference of the Amazon".
And this is what the Pontiff has done. "Well disposed to favor this initiative, which emerged from the Synodal Assembly, Pope Francis charged the Congregation for Bishops to follow and closely accompany the process, lending all possible assistance to give the organism a suitable physiognomy."
In the Audience of October 9 granted to the Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, the Holy Father canonically erected the Ecclesial Conference of Amazonia as a public ecclesiastical juridical person, giving it the purpose of promoting the joint pastoral action of the ecclesiastical circumscriptions of Amazonia and fostering a greater inculturation of the faith in that territory.
The Statutes of the new organization will be submitted to the Holy Father for the necessary approval at the end of its study.
