CWN Editor's Note: “I read, with some pain, that for many people Christianity is a foreign faith, a religion for foreigners,” Pope Francis said in a meeting at a Bangkok parish with priests, religious, seminarians, and catechists (video). “Let us give faith a Thai face and flesh, which involves much more than making translations. It is about letting the Gospel be stripped of fine but foreign garb; to let it ‘sing’ with the native music of this land and inspire the hearts of our brothers and sisters with the same beauty that set our own hearts on fire.”
