Religious Minorities in Asia

That Christians, and other religious minorities in Asian countries, may be able to practise their faith in full freedom.

In his first video of 2018, Pope Francis spoke on his January intention, religious minorities in Asia. “When we think of those who are persecuted for their religion, we go beyond difference of rite or confession: We place ourselves on the side of the men and women who fight to avoid renouncing their religious identity,” said Pope Francis. “Let us pray for all of them so that Christians, and other religious minorities in Asian countries, may be able to practice their faith in full freedom.”
