Pope urges Thais not to see Christianity as ‘foreign’ [DailyTimes] 22 Nov, 2019

>Pope Francis paid tribute on Friday to Catholics in Thailand who suffered or were killed for their faith in the past and urged today’s Thais not to consider Christianity a “foreign” religion. The pope was on his last full day of a visit to Thailand, where the dominant culture is closely tied to Buddhism, although the Catholic minority of fewer than 1% were generally treated well in modern times. On Friday, Francis travelled to Wat Roman, a mostly Catholic area on the outskirts of the bustling capital of Bangkok.
