The Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community (COMECE) published a document calling for such an examination. «Let Us Open Our Hearts» was prepared by a group of European theologians.

The document is being sent to all the Catholic bishops’ conferences of the current and future member states of the European Union so that it be commented upon and amended by the greatest possible number of groups and movements in the Church.

All those who wish to do so can transmit their reactions by Nov. 15 to the COMECE Secretariat. The synthesis will be presented at the theological congress to be organized by COMECE in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, next April 22-23.

The full text of the document may be downloaded from COMECE’s Web page at:
