Cambodia - missionary work banned

I've just read this from the News Page of the National Association of Catholic Families:
The government of Cambodia has banned missionary work. While 95% of Cambodia's 13 million citizens are Buddhist, the Muslim and Christian minorities have generally been tolerated. But the government's new policy bars efforts to spread other religious beliefs. [CWNews]

Pray for Cambodia, with whom, thanks to the initiative of Bishop Michael, East Anglia has been fortunate enough to establish close friendships.

Great blog, chaps. Keep up the good work, and thank you for your generous response to God's call to serve him.

You're in my prayers as you continue your priestly formation. God bless.
