CWN Editor's Note: “Our people have a very simple but very strong faith,” said Archbishop Joseph Arshad of Islamabad-Rawalpindi, president of Arshad of Islamabad-Rawalpindi, the president of the bishops’ conference. “Some 90% of Catholic Christians attend Mass every Sunday, and many also go to Mass during the week. I should add that many people simply cannot attend Mass every Sunday because of the lack of churches and the shortage of priests.”
