In September, While the stage was being set for the October Amazon Synod in Rome, Maryknoll Lay Missioner Kathy Bond, who has been serving in Brazil for decades, attended the Convergence of International Women: We are Medicine conference in Peru. She asked several attendees what their message would be for the Amazon Synod. These are two of her reports:

Aboriginal and Indigenous Spirituality: “They are me and I am Them

Miliwanga Wurrben, a traditional healer and elder, represents a remote area in Northern Territory, Australia.

Women Indigenous Spirituality: Giving Voice to What Cannot Speak

Sweet Medicine Nation from Oregon, of Chickasaw lineage and of multicultural heritage, said if invited to the Amazon Synod, she would speak for “all of those who have no voice ... the trees, the water, and the animals.”
