It is impossible to describe the gratitude I feel at this moment.
For the last four days I have experienced a tremendous outpouring of love, community, and solidarity. God has been made real to me, by sisters and brothers, gathered here from around the Americas. We are currently reviewing a statement, written by our bishops which reflects the experience and affirmations of this gathering. I am delighted to report that we have also agreed on five concrete commitments which we will make to each other, to the Church, to the world, and to God.
Our time has been so rich and so focused that I have been unable to give steady updates along the way. We have harddrives full of video and notes, and giant newsprint pages covered in Spanish, English, and a common sweat which unifies us all.
In the weeks and months to come, we will use this site to report as best we can, the beauty that has happened in San Pedro de Macorís. Our ratified statement and the commitments of our group will follow later today.
