Aparecida 142: Configuration Through Liturgy, Charity, and Justice

The Aparecida bishops also see “configuration” to Christ as an aspiration that comes from the liturgy. It’s not just the sacramental  life, but also the Scriptures. And more: also “solidarity”–one might say another kind of configuration–to the needy:

142. Numerous Christians in Latin America and the Caribbean seek to be configured to the Lord and to find Him in prayerfully listening to the Word, receiving his forgiveness in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and his life in the celebration of the Eucharist and the other sacraments, in personal commitment in solidarity to the most needy brothers and sisters and in the life of many communities that joyfully recognize the Lord in their midst.

For deeper examination, an English translation of the 2007 document from the Aparecida Conference.
