Says the time has come to “resume missio for non-Christians”
NAGASAKI, Japan (ChurchMilitant.com) – A leading Vatican prelate is calling on Catholics to resume the evangelization of Japan.
Cardinal Fernando Filoni, Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, told an audience in the archdiocese of Nagasaki Tuesday that the time has come to “resume missio for non-Christians.” Catholics, he said, must “put in the eyes of non-Christians the identity of Jesus through their lives, approaching them all with patience and friendship.”
