Vietnam – Questions about Proclaiming the Good News

I work in the mountainous provinces in northwestern Vietnam where a few villagers from ethnic minority groups have converted to Catholicism, and many men and women religious from various orders ask me about the local situations. They want to know if there are many Catholics and if they can open kindergartens and produce herbal medicine. Only a few of them ask whether the situation allows them to do missionary activities. It is clear that religious have not given priority to mission work.

What about the laity? Many people give full attention to their living. A man told me that “Livelihood is preferred to religious practice.” People keep their faith just a formality, rather than growing up into faith practice. How can they introduce God to others?
