A summit of bishops known as a synod, in October, proposed allowing married men into the priesthood, only in the Amazon area, to address the serious shortage of clergy in remote parts of the rainforest region.
The pope is due to respond to the synod with an Apostolic Exhortation.
The document, called “Querida Amazonia” (Dear Amazon), would be published at noon (1100 GMT).
