The 21st century is the century of laity and women in the Church. Reading the signs of the times, we can see the Spirit moving powerfully to bring change. I feel strongly that the Church in Asia is already on the road to implementing the change which people in the West are seeking in the Church. But we need to remain on that track and not go backward. Unfortunately, that was my gut feeling towards the end of my term as secretary of the FABC Office of Laity and Family and Women in 2010.
