In a message to the Catholic bishops of Portugal, who were making their ad limina visits to Rome, Pope Francis suggested a new approach to catechesis, noting that young Catholics are leaving the active practice of the faith.
In his message to the Portuguese bishops, the Pope said that their reports had shown both strengths and weaknesses. He complimented the Portuguese hierarchy on their unity, their synodal practice, and their formation of priests. The Pope also remarked that the Church in Portugal has a clear voice in public affairs, “even though her voice is not always followed.”
