Cardinal Bo spoke with EWTN at the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress in Budapest, Hungary, on Sept. 8. He discussed the Church in Asia with Matthew Bunson, executive editor and Washington Bureau chief of EWTN News, and Fr. John Paul Zeller, employee chaplain of EWTN.
Asia’s culture and religion go hand in hand, said the cardinal, who also serves as the president of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences. He called the culture and religions – including Buddhism, Islam, and Catholicism – “very rich, very diverse.”
Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.” Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
