The Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation on the Amazon Region, addressed to the People of God and all people of good will, traces new paths of evangelisation and care for the environment and the poor. Pope Francis hopes for a new missionary thrust, and encourages the role of the laity within the ecclesial community
'The destiny of the Amazon affects us all, because everything is connected, and the salvation of this region and its original peoples is fundamental for the whole world.'
- ..Cardinal Michael Czerny, Special Secretary of the Synod for the Amazon
