The unity of the Church is to be understood as a unity that welcomes diversity, says Cardinal Claudio Hummes, the recently named rapporteur (relator general) for the upcoming Synod of Bishops' special assembly on the Pan-Amazonian Region.

“Today, much is said about the unity of the Church. It is of fundamental and utmost importance. However, it has to be understood as a unity that welcomes diversity, following the model of the Most Holy Trinity," said the cardinal, whom Pope Francis appointed as the assembly's relator general on May 4.
