CWN Editor's Note: Mr. Mauricio L√≥pez Oropeza, executive secretary of REPAM (the Pan-Amazonian Ecclesial Network), sees three “tensions” at the upcoming Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon Region: the synod’s scope (territoriality or universality), “temporality” (“between the kairos of the ‘new paths for the Church’ and the chronos of the urgency to respond to the socio-environmental crisis”), and reform (centrality or synodality).
