Ahead of Pope Francis' Apostolic Journey to Japan, a missionary priest from the Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI) explores the challenges of preaching the Gospel in a country where work takes priority over religion. Fr Bradly, an OMI missionary, says people don't have time to come to Church, but respond well to Church-organized events if they can find a free moment. He hopes the Pope's visit will strengthen faith and belief in Christianity in a country that doesn't give priority to religion. The OMI arrived in Japan in 1948 and continue to work mostly in parishes, teaching children about God.
