“There is nothing more dangerous for synodality than to think that we already understand everything, […] that we already control everything,” Pope Francis warns in a video message to the Pontifical Commission for Latin America made public on May 26, 2022. Referring to the spirituality of the continent’s peoples, the Argentine Pontiff explains that it is “linked to the land.”
