Taiwan’s bishops outline priorities for 2011

Catholic World News - January 11, 2011

In their 2011 pastoral letter, Taiwan’s bishops have outlined four priorities for the new year:

  • “loving the Eucharist, constantly participating in the best way at the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, not omitting prayer and daily Bible reading, promoting the Liturgy of the Hours to respond to the call of the Lord”
  • “to try in all ways to witness Jesus, profiting from the mass media to evangelize”
  • “to respect life, to promote the protection of unborn life, the abolition of the death penalty, to promote the spirit of forgiveness, to stabilize relations of peace and justice among peoples through prayer, attention to the neighborhood, the protection of the environment and the healing of the weak”
  • ongoing formation to promote the “sanctification and the love of the family, in family relations, in the promotion of prayer for the family, in children’s and youth formation and of intellectuals through the catechism”
  • 1.3% of the nation’s 23.0 million people are Catholic, according to Vatican statistics; 93% are Buddhist or Taoist.
