9. "This Special Assembly for Africa of the Synod of Bishops is a providential event of grace, for which we must give praise and thanks to the Almighty and Merciful Father through the Son in the Holy Spirit".8 It is with these words that the Fathers solemnly opened the discussion of the Synod's theme during the first General Congregation. On an earlier occasion, I had expressed a similar conviction, recognizing that "the Special Assembly is an ecclesial event of fundamental importance for Africa, a kairos, a moment of grace, in which God manifests his salvation. The whole Church is invited to live fully this time of grace, to accept and spread the Good News. The effort expended in preparation for the Synod will not only benefit the celebration of the Synod itself, but from this time on will work in favour of the local Churches which make their pilgrim way in Africa, whose faith and witness are being strengthened and are becoming increasingly mature".9
