Latest Message from the Holy Father

"The most striking feature of Asia is the variety of its peoples who are heirs to ancient cultures, religions and traditions. On this continent, where the Church is a minority, the challenges are intense. We must promote dialogue among religions and cultures. Dialogue is an essential part of the mission of the Church in Asia. Let us pray that Christians in Asia may promote dialogue, peace, and mutual understanding, especially with those of other religions."- Pope Francis (November 2017)
