EVANGELIZATION IN THE LIGHT OF ECCLESIA IN ASIA
Edited by Fr. Mario Saturnino Dias
Also in response to the call given by the Synod Fathers to “all Christ’s disciples in Asia to a new commitment to mission” (EA 1 & 4). Hence, the theme of the Symposium “Evangelization in the light of Ecclesia in Asia”. The FABC Office of Evangelization always nurtured the desire to study the Apostolic Exhortation in depth in view of this new commitment to mission, but other programs planned before the promulgation of Ecclesia in Asia did not permit necessary time and space for this venture. Coincidentally at a point a proposal from “Asia 2000” – a lay mission oriented movement originated in the US with roots in India – to join hands with the FABC Office of Evangelization gave new impetus to our dream in the waiting. In fact, “Asia 2000” co-sponsored this Symposium.
