position: "...many dioceses and parishes have been deeply engaged in this
issue in response to the Holy Father's call for substantial debt forgiveness on
the occasion of the Great Jubilee, and in an effort to live out the commitments
made in the synod of the Americas and to be in solidarity with the Church in the

relief, not for its own sake, but in order to alleviate poverty in the poorest
countries." (Bernard Cardinal Law, Chair, International Policy Committee,
