For the central Burma archbishop, the local Church's biggest challenges are forming priesthood candidates, continual formation for priests and empowering laity. For almost four years, since he was appointed to head Mandalay archdiocese, Archbishop Paul Zinghtung Grawng has been stressing that his role is that of a servant who animates, supports and coordinates the Church's apostolate work. As he joked to 30 Catholic young people at his 68th birthday celebration last month, he carries out Church activities "like a 28-year-old, who has forgotten 40 years" of his life.
