The Stamp of Aparecida

In the Osservatore Romano, an interview with the Secretary, Father Alexandre Awi Mello: “Rarely in the history of the Church have young people been so much at the center of worries, reflections, and ecclesial action”

The next edition of the WYD will be “under the sign of Mary. We must continue learning from her to be a Church that is a Mother who trusts in the potentialities of her children, accompanies them, educates them, and promotes their protagonism.”

Father Alexandre Awi Mello, since last June our Dicastery’s Secretary, is convinced of this. One year before the WYD in Panama, he takes stock in an interview published a few days ago by the Osservatore Romano.
