The 122nd ordinary plenary assembly of Venezuelan bishops began on July 7. The day began with a solemn Eucharist for the 125 years of consecration of this country to the Blessed Sacrament.

Three issues were on the agenda: a new nuncio, Dignitas Infinita and the Synod. On the first point, the Spaniard Alberto Ortega handed over the “letter of recommendation” to the leadership of the Episcopate, headed by Jesús González, Archbishop of Valencia.

The diplomat will therefore begin his duties at the Holy See embassy in this country. “I am very happy to arrive in this country that has welcomed me with open arms,” he said in statements to the press team of the Archdiocese of Caracas.

He also said that he came with the desire to convey “the closeness and love of Pope Francis” since he has given his blessing and advocated for the protection of the country’s patron saint, the Virgin of Coromoto.

Themes of interest

The Episcopal press team also reported that the prelates examined in depth the papal document Dignitas infinitas, a declaration on human dignity published by the Dicastery for the Doctrine of Faith on 8 April 2024.

With the support of the team of the Permanent Secretariat, they have reviewed the summary document of the Synod on Synodality, which will be sent to the General Secretariat of the Synod and which will serve as input for the second round in October.

The prelates are expected to conclude their assembly on July 11, for which they have called a press conference, whose spokesman will be the president of the Bishops’ Conference, Jesús González.
