We Are Church International

Petitions

 

The People of God are expressing their concerns and needs to the Sacred Pastors and this is reflected in the on-line petitions that are available.  This may arise from within the We Are Church movement but they may also arise from elsewhere.  

 

In the interests of enabling you to sign those which particularly reflect your concerns in the Church we are offering here petitions which are particularly in accord with We Are Church objects.  You are welcome to sign one, all of them or indeed none.

 

 

Der Erzbischof von Trnava, Róbert Bezák, wurde ohne Angabe von Gründen mit 1. Juli 2012 von Papst Benedikt XVI. seines Amtes enthoben. Bisher wurden vom Vatikan weder Gründe der Absetzung genannt noch eine Wiedereinsetzung ins Amt vorgenommen. Im Gegenteil, es wurde ein neuer Erzbischof in Trnava eingesetzt. Diese Vorgangsweise stellt eine schwere Missachtung der Menschenwürde und damit der Menschenrechte dar.

Our mission is to gather all of this energy and focus our communal love for the Church and passion for reform on a single cause: urging Pope Francis and his council of eight cardinals to decentralize the Church and encourage the People of God in each diocese throughout the world to elect their own bishops. We think this step is essential before the Church can turn to more specific reform issues. Electing our own bishops will make for a new, more vibrant Church in which the people of God – led by the clerical, religious, and lay leaders – will have a voice in what Vatican II declared was our Church.
