The Pope will present the document at the Vatican to the participants of that synodal assembly.

The apostolic exhortation will be added to those on Africa, America and Asia. The final papal document on the 1999 synod of Europe is still awaited.

The special continental synods convoked between 1994 and 1999 were among the initiatives that preceded the celebration of the Jubilee Year.
