Here's another sign of the vitality of Asian Christianity: a fascinating glimpse of the first missionary congress was held in Mumbai, India last week.
It was the fulfillment of the dream of Pope John Paul II to organize continental mission congresses. 1500 members of India's three Catholic Church rites -- the Latin, Syro-Malabar and Syro-Malankara rites - attended.
There are loads of Congress videos up at You Tube (what was I expecting from the land of Bollywood?) and I scanned several. This one will give you a taste of the Congress and of Catholic life in India.
