- In a letter to the Bishops of Argentina sent in late March, Pope Francis directed Argentina’s Bishops to govern the Church there following the Aparecida Document.
- Although the letter did receive some media attention, few outlets mentioned the stress Pope Francis placed on the Aparedica document. In the letter, the Pope urged the Argentine Assembly of Bishops to use the Aparecida document as their framework. “These are the guidelines we need for this time in history,” he said.
- The Aparecida document was first presented in 2007 by then-Cardinal Bergoglio – now Pope Francis -- on behalf of the bishops of Latin America. The document made a very clear statement regarding the consequences of supporting abortion - disallowing holy communion for anyone who facilitates an abortion, including politicians.
