By: Andreas R. Batlogg, SJ

By: Giovanni Cucci, SJ

Myanmar and Bangladesh: Two nations in the heart of Asia

By: Michael Kelly, SJ

Pope Francis will be in Myanmar and Bangladesh for his 21st apostolic journey November 27 to December 2, 2017. These two nations, situated in the heart of Asia, have tragic, bloodstained histories since slipping the bonds of British colonialism. They sit at the junction of the major geographical blocs of South, Southeast and North Asia and have their maritime littorals about where the great Indian and Pacific Oceans meet. Bangladesh and Myanmar are in the top five of the poorest...
