CWN Editor's Note: A number of noted liberal Catholic leaders met in Rome this week for what the Vatican characterized as a “study meeting” to prepare for the Amazon Synod. Participants at the meeting— which was by invitation— included Cardinal Walter Kasper; Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, the secretary-general of the Synod; Cardinal Claudio Hummes, the retired Brazilian prelate who was appointed by Pope Francis as relator general of this Synod meeting; and Bishop Erwin Kräutler, who has made the case for the ordination of married men to the priesthood.
