Catholic bishops from around the world are meeting at the Vatican to discuss the future of the Church in the Amazon.
Over the next three weeks, some 260 participants will talk about climate change, migration and evangelism.
Pope Francis opened the talks on Sunday by blaming destructive "interests" that led to recent fires in the Amazon.
"The fire of God is warmth that attracts and gathers into unity. It is fed by sharing, not by profits," he said.
But one topic has dominated the headlines: whether married men will be allowed to become priests.
