Zoe Romanowsky - published on 10/24/15

Among Salt and Light Media’s short interviews with participants of the 2015 Synod of Bishops on the Family is this one featuring Charles Cardinal Maung Bo, SDB, the Archbishop of Yangon in Myanmar (often still referred to by its former name, Burma). He speaks about the issues his country faces when it comes to family life and what he has experienced at the synod.
