Leading central Asian bishop: Pope’s Mongolia visit shows unity despite differences
September 05, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: Bishop José Luis Mumbiela Sierra, the president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Central Asia, reflected on the Pope’s apostolic journey to Mongolia.
“God’s grace is necessary in all areas,” said the prelate, the Spanish-born bishop of Almaty (Kazakhstan). “I think it is also a sign, because the Pope has different encounters, with civil society, with religious, with Catholics and with non-Catholics, non-Christians. The Lord has graces for everyone.”
