It features and reports on important Church documents.
In the past, JMJ has helped pioneer cross-cultural discussion on such
crucial topics as ancestor veneration, Zen meditation, the meaning and
role of Shinto customs, the writings of Endo Shusaku and other Christian
authors, and the like.
Since we have entered the third millennium, JMJ focuses especially upon the specific problems the Church is facing today, particularly in the Asian context of the triple dialogue with cultures, with other religious traditions, and with the immense multitude of the poor.
