Default The Aparecida Document

I agree with this statement:

Anyone who would like to know Pope Francis' understanding of the Church's self-understanding and role in the world would do well to read this document.

The Aparecida (Brazilian city) Document is in pdf format linked on the above website. It's a very important document for our times and Ron, if it's in public domain you may add it to your link's section of your website (Documents of the Holy See [or Church]).

Pope Francis has been giving this document as a gift to different leaders who have gone to visit him at the Vatican.

Some points from the Document:

40. Among the premises that weaken and undermine family life, we find the ideology of gender, according to which each everyone can chose his or her sexual orientation, without taking into account the differences set to them by human nature. This has led to legislative changes that gravely injure the dignity of marriage, respect for the right to life, and the identity of the family.

49. Cultural changes have modified the traditional roles of men and women, who are seeking to develop new attitudes and styles of their respective identities, empowering all their human dimensions in everyday shared life, in the family and in society, sometimes along erroneous paths.
