"World Council of Churches, Fifth Assembly. Dossier Number 13, December 1981".
"For limited circulation only".
"At the Nairobi Assembly of the World Council of Churches in 1975, it was proposed that: 'the World Council of Churches has a particular responsibility to assist those churches who defend the rights of migrant workers; the World Council of Churches should assist churches to deal with the root causes of migration and refugee movements; the World Council of Churches has a special task to provide the churches with the fullest possible information on the situation of uprooted persons'. This is the thirteenth dossier that the Migration Secretariat has collected, published and distributed. Each dossier has attempted to contribute to each of the above proposals. .... Each dossier has attempted to gather together in one place hard-to-get documentation, scattered references and newspaper clippings. .... This dossier is an attempt to catch up some of the thinking and action of the churches in their ministry with migrant workers. .... This dossier is the last one which both Barbro Ries and I will put together." -- Preface.

"Many Bible, called 'red-letter editions', have Jesus' direct statements printed in red. We have adapted this practice to introduce the 'green letter edition'. In it we highlight the rich and varied ways the books of the Bible speak directly to how we should think and act as we confront the environmental crisis facing our planet. As you read the Scriptures, you will see that passages speaking directly to the project's core mission are printed in green." -- Preface, p. [I-15].
Contents include the "Green Subject Index ... [which] includes listings of Bible passages that cover such topics as animals, caring for your neighbour, land, and water.

"The study of this topic 'The Church and the Faults of the Past" was proposed to the International Theological Commission by its President, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, in view of the celebration of the Jubilee Year 2000. .... The general discussion of this theme took place in numerous meetings of the subcommission and during the plenary sessions of the International Theological Commission held in Rome from 1998 to 1999. By written vote, the present text was approved in 'forma specifica' by the Commission, and was then submitted to the President, Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, who gave his approval for its publication". -- Preliminary Note.
"The Bull of Indiction of the Great Jubilee of the Year 2000, 'Incarnationis Mysterium' (November 29, 1998), includes the purification of memory among the signs 'which may help people to live the exceptional grace of the Jubilee with greater fervor'. This purification aims at liberating personal and communal conscience from all forms of resentment and violence that are the legacy of past faults, through a renewed historical and theological evaluation of such events. This should lead -- if done correctly -- to a corresponding recognition of guilt and contribute to the path of reconciliation. Such a process can have a significant effect on the present, precisely because the consequences of past faults can still make themselves felt and can persist as tensions in the present". -- Intro., p. 10.

"`We all hope that as the People's Republic of China gradually opens to the rest of the world the church in China will also be permitted to have more contact with the universal church,' Pope John Paul II said in his homily during the May 14 Mass during the Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for Asia. In a message directed to Catholics in mainland China, the pope said: `I wish to express once more my affection and tell you how sorry I am that the bishop of Wanxian and his coadjutor could not come to Rome to take part personally in the synod' (see Origins, Vol. 27, pp. 765)."
