Catholic bishops propose initiatives to help the Amazon

Close to 200 Catholic bishops spent three weeks in October in Rome discussing how to assist the Amazon region of South America, paying special attention to evangelization, countering violence, and supporting environmental sustainability, America magazine reported. The article highlights a quote from Cardinal Michael Czerny: “With the Amazon burning, many more people are realizing that things have to change. We cannot keep repeating old responses to urgent problems and expect to get better results.”
