THEME: STORY OF JESUS IN THE RELIGIONS OF ASIA
OVERVIEW:

Continuing the work of the Congress, this day directs participants’ attention to the role of Jesus in the religions of Asia. There will be an opening contextualization, portraying the panorama of Asia’s diverse religions. This will be followed by an interesting panel presentation, comprised of four of the living faiths in the Asian continent: Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Tribals/Indigenous. The morning concludes with a Theological-Spiritual Reflection on the Mission of the Church.

The major focus of the afternoon activities will be the workshops; adequate time is provided for in-depth sharing on the question: “What do I appreciate in the followers of other religions in my country?” Given the diversity of Asian religions and the mixed nature of the workshop participants, the interaction will be very rich and profitable.

In the late afternoon, participants will gather in the plenary hall to hear some brief workshop feedback. This will be followed by two reflective theological syntheses, one presented by an Asian theologian, the other presented by an expatriate missioner with lengthy Asian experience. The evening will be devoted to prayer through the mission rosary and a Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament.
