The Pan-Amazon Synod concluded on October 27, 2019 with a call for a renewed Roman Catholic presence in Amazonia, the recognition of the need for an “integral ecological conversion,” the importance of developing indigenous theologies and inculturated liturgies, and the call for the recognition of women into the permanent diaconate of the Church. This essay details some of the discussion topics addressed by the Synod and locates these conversations in the context of the turbulent Brazilian political scenario, where the Synod has been attacked by political authorities.
