Taiwan’s bishops urge faithful to pray Liturgy of the Hours, study Catechism

Catholic World News - January 04, 2012

The bishops of Taiwan issued a pastoral letter on January 1 to help the nation’s Catholics prepare for the upcoming Year of Faith.

The bishops exhorted priests to offer Mass with care and urged the lay faithful to participate in Mass and Eucharistic adoration, pray the Liturgy of the Hours, and study the Catechism of the Catholic Church. In addition, the bishops urged parishes to develop evangelization projects.

Only 1.3% of the nation’s 23.3 million people are Catholic, according to Vatican statistics; 93% are Buddhist or Taoist.
