His first point is that in “the Third Christian Millennium a great harvest of faith will be reaped in this vast and vital continent [of Asia].” The second point is to respond “to Pope Francis call for economic and environmental justice.”
Third point is the urgent need of recognizing the presence of indigenous people. Cardinal’s fourth concern is pursing peace through continuing the three-fold dialogue with poverty, culture and religions. Finally, the cardinal proposes that the “Church should be a healer of known and hidden wounds”.
