Courage to Speak Truth in Turbulent Times: I write to you from Bangkok, Thailand and the 21st International Asian Pacific Congress on Faith, Life and Family (ASPAC) co-sponsored by HLI and the Episcopal Commission for Social Ministries (Caritas Thailand) of the Bishops Conference of Thailand. Over 300 delegates representing twenty-two countries participated in the three-day congress. The truth about life, marriage and family are being ripped apart by violent forces – atheistic and secular ideologies and philosophies with little or no regard for the inherent dignity of the human person or for his eternal vocation. This years’ theme, “Put Out Into the Deep – Defending the Family, Hope of the Dying World,” challenged participants to stand in the breach and confront the deceptive tactics of the death peddlers while witnessing the beauty and wonder of God’s divine plan for the family and humanity.

Tomorrow Dr. Brian Clowes and I travel to Mumbai, India to participate in a three-day pro-life symposium for bishops, priests, religious, doctors, lawyers, laity and young people predominantly from the Syro-Malabar Church. Many of the priests, religious, professionals and lay leaders are engaged in Family Apostolates in their respective Eparchies in Kerala, Mumbai and other parts of India. This is the first symposium on pro-life and family issues for the Syro-Malabar Church. Please pray for the success of this symposium, as well as HLI’s global activities in the service of Life.
