It is so refreshing to read about the Church’s mission and efforts throughout the world. We in the United States tend to limit our awareness of Church to our immediate parish or diocese, with only a certain superficial acknowledgment of the Church Universal.
The Vatican’s website for it’s missionary work is www.fides.org When you have a few minutes, log on and you will find a wealth of information about the Church’s work in many places of the world.
It has a wonderful photo archive too, spanning decades.
Our Holy Father, I understand, wants more information to be shared about the Church’s missionary activity, more information about the Church in places other than North America or Europe. This webservice does a fine job doing just that.
Apparently, more and more information is now available about the Church in countries such as China. Let us keep ourselves aware of the Church’s needs, its character, its expression in foreign lands, and let us always keep in prayer our Catholic brothers and sisters in those lands.
