Pentecost in Asia: A New Way of Being Church

Overview

What would the Catholic Church look like if an unyielding search for justice and harmony characterized its mission in the world? What if the church's priorities shifted so that living in solidarity with the laity, especially the poorest among them, became its primary goal? How would Catholicism appear to the world and to other religions if simply living out the gospels became its primary mode of evangelization?

Overview

What would the Catholic Church look like if an unyielding search for justice and harmony characterized its mission in the world? What if the church's priorities shifted so that living in solidarity with the laity, especially the poorest among them, became its primary goal? How would Catholicism appear to the world and to other religions if simply living out the gospels became its primary mode of evangelization? What if Catholic bishops looked to their theologians as venerable "masters," incorporating them into deliberations on theology and pastoral care? How would Catholic authority be transformed if building consensus became a primary means of finding direction? Or if leaders knew, in the final analysis, authority had to be earned from their people? This would be a new kind of Catholicism. And, as journalist Thomas C. Fox shows us, this Catholicism has already been born and has been coming to life in Asia over the past thirty years. It is a Catholicism that offers a fresh, new vision of church, a global vision for the 21st century.
