Recently the East Asian Pastoral Institute was privileged to listen to Cardinal Orlando Quevedo speak about the future of mission in Asia. The documentation for this significant presentation was in the form of an outline with specific key points receiving emphasis. Clearly, the Cardinal was speaking from his many years of experience with the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences (FABC). An editor, conversant with the FABC, has refashioned the basic insights into a narrative presentation, always seeking to remain faithful to the key insights of Cardinal Quevedo. To better appreciate the ten pivotal points highlighted by the Cardinal, the editor first presents an overview of Asian realities and some background on the FABC.
