Lecture by Dr. Bernadeth Caero
Bernadeth Carmen Caero Bustillos, Doctor of Theology in the area of Old Testament from the University of Salzburg, Austria, gave a lecture on Nazaria Ignatia from the perspective of synodality.
Dr. Bernadeth organised the conference along four axes: a woman of reference, a life of total dedication, a charism of synodality and a proposal for a synodal path, masterfully correlating the figure of St. Nazaria with biblical traits and synodal elements.
We leave here a brief outline of the conference:
- To see God it is enough for us to see the person next to us.
- Regarding the initial mission, which was carried out in Quechua and Aymara, she pointed out that the mission in different languages implies entering into the culture of the other.
- Nazaria shared her spirituality with other brothers and sisters, a feature of synodality.
- The constant desire to build unity is another element of synodality.
- Likewise, solidarity with those most in need, which Nazaria developed in partnership with them.
- Nazaria’s faith was concretised in a social practice, in which the poor and women played an important role.
- The priesthood of women, considered as a privileged mediation between God and the person, made Nazaria a woman of full ecclesial participation.
- She emphasised Nazaria’s passion for justice and dignity for all.
