CELAM wraps up with final message and issues lengthy document

Catholic New Agency reports on the conclusion of the Fifth General Conference of Latin American and Caribbean Bishops. And that document didn't just seem lengthy.
...the more than 200 page book is aimed at providing a guide for pastoral options to the Latin American Bishops. ...

According to Bishop Norberto Strotmann from Chosica (Peru) "the risk of the document is that, by trying to include too many options, we end up making no real options at all."

"It obviously has the virtues and the limitations of a consensus text," Bishop Strotmann also explained.

Length not being among those limitations.
