Our Associates in the Biblical Apostolate

Fr. Alberto, Ms. Winnie Wong (Chinese Editor) and Fr. Peter Chao, CMF met with [seated] Fr. Mark Fang, SJ and Fr. Luis Gutheinz, SJ in Taiwan in the first week of February

Fr. Mark is our strong support for the immense project of preparing a new pastoral Bible in Chinese. Now we have corrected and approved most of the New Testament, which includes a new translation of the biblical text, new commentaries and Lectio Divina.

Fr. Luis is one of the most important theological scholars in China. Great professor and teacher, writer, translator (of the texts of the Magisterium) ... and apostle of the people affected with leprosy. His latest project : Ecumenical Catholic Encyclopedia, in Chinese. Its purpose is to provide an aid for theological study and to find answers for the basic questions (what, how, who where) about the Bible. He plans to complete the project in 5 years.
