新加坡教会能为中国教会做什么?

Singapore Church is in a privileged position to help Catholics in China. There is no language problem and Singapore fast modernization may be inspiring to visitors from China. Lately, Zhonglian team, in cooperation with the Jesuits and sisters, have arranged sessions and retreats for priests and sisters from China. In a month time, they can learn a lot from the Singapore pastoral activities: catechumenate, Bible groups, marriage preparation course, marriage encounters, and they can make a good retreat. This short stay in Singapore may be more beneficial than long years of abstract studies in Europe. Studies in Europe should be limited to priests, sisters or lay people who have a university background and had no major difficulty in learning a European language.

I hope Taiwan will be able to welcome soon a good number of theology students in Fujen University. Studies in the Philippines may also be a good experience. Learning English is very important for China Church people. It is the key to communication with the world.
