Katolska kyrkan har inlett sin synod i om Mellanöstern. Idag predikade påven vid dess inledning. Han betonade att Kyrkan är beroende av den Helige Andes ledning:

And the Church continues to live on that same strength which enabled it to begin and to grow. Pentecost is the original event but also a permanent dynamism, and the Synod of Bishops is a privileged moment in which the grace of Pentecost may be renewed in the Church’s journey, so that the Good News may be announced openly and heard by all peoples.

Öppenheten för den Helige Ande främjar kommunikation inom Katolska kyrkan i Mellanöstern....

As regards this, the Instrumentum laboris, elaborated by a Presynodal Council whose members we thank for their work, underlined these ecclesial finalities of the Assembly, pointing out that, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, it wishes to re-enliven communion of the Catholic Church in the Middle East. First of all within each Church, between all its members: Patriarch, Bishop, priests, religious persons, persons of consecrated life and the laity.

... och dialogen med andra medkristna...

And, thereby, in the relationships with the other Churches. Ecclesial life, corroborated in this way, will see the development of very positive fruits in the ecumenical path with the other Churches and ecclesial Communities present in the Middle East.

...och den interreligiösa dialogen...

This occasion is also propitious to constructively continue the dialogue with Jews, to whom we are tied by an indissoluble bond, the lengthy history of the Covenant, as we are with the Muslims.

Till synoden är inbjudna företrädare för andra kristna samfund liksom för judar och muslimer. Påven betonar att det är viktigt att kristna stannar i Israel och de övriga länderna i Mellanöstern trots svårigheter och på plats bidrar till fred och försoning. Katolska kyrkan är beredd att samarbeta med alla människor av god vilja för att främja det allmänna goda: in a dignified manner in one’s own country is above all a fundamental human right: therefore, the conditions of peace and justice, which are necessary for the harmonious development of all those living in the region, should be promoted. Therefore all are called to give their personal contribution: the international community, by supporting a stable path, loyal and constructive, towards peace; those most prevalent religions in the region, in promoting the spiritual and cultural values that unite men and exclude any expression of violence. Christians will continue to contribute not only with the work of social promotion, such as institutes of education and health, but above all with the spirit of the Evangelical Beatitudes, which enliven the practice of forgiveness and reconciliation. In this commitment, they will always have the support of the entire Church, as is solemnly attested by the presence here of the Delegates of the Episcopacies of other continents.
