About this title


As this moving pastoral statement presents, the rapidly growing Asian and Pacific American communities have helped the Church shine as a sacrament of unity and universality.

From the Back Cover:

This "being Asian" is best discovered and affirmed not in confrontation and opposition, but in the spirit of complementarity and harmony. In this framework of complementarity and harmony, the Church can communicate the Gospel in a way that is faithful both to her own Tradition and to the Asian soul. -The Church in Asia (Ecclesia in Asia), no. 6 In this pastoral statement, the U.S. bishops present a portrait of the rapidly growing Asian and Pacific American communities and reflect on their contributions to the Church as well as their pastoral needs and concerns. Building on John Paul II's The Church in Asia and their recent statement, Welcoming the Stranger Among Us, the bishops celebrate the diversity of homelands, languages, religions, and ecclesial experiences of Asian and Pacific Americans, and identify some of the cultural gifts that Asian and Pacific Americans bring to the Church, including the value placed on harmony, family, education, spirituality, and religiosity, and a long tradition of lay leadership. The statement offers national, diocesan, and parish-level leaders seven strategies to more fully support the continued growth and maturing of the Asian and Pacific communities within the Church.
