Cardinal: personal witness is crucial for the evangelization of Asia

Catholic World News - February 17, 2014

Pope Paul VI’s dictum that “modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers” is particularly true in Asia, the Philippines’ leading prelate said in an article that appears in the new English-language edition of L’Osservatore Romano.

“Without a deep experience of Jesus as Savior, how I can tell his story convincingly as part of my personal story?” said Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle. “The witness of a holy, ethical and upright life is still the best story about Jesus in Asia … Men and women who have dedicated themselves to service of neighbor, like Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, are living stories that Asian peoples love to hear.”
