When Cardinal Charles Maung Bo became the first cardinal of Myanmar in 2015, he took his new position seriously.
“The pope gave me the red hat and said, ‘It’s the color of the blood,’” he recalled. His hat, or biretta, is his reminder to remain fearless in defending and speaking out for his people – the Church in Asia.
Cardinal Bo spoke with EWTN at the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress in Budapest, Hungary, on Sept. 8. He discussed the Church in Asia with Matthew Bunson, executive editor and Washington bureau chief of EWTN News, and Fr. John Paul Zeller, employee chaplain of EWTN.
