We will briefly present a portrait of the members of the Asian and Pacific communities(Catholics and non-Catholics), celebrate their gifts and contributions, reflect on the pastoral needs and concerns of the Catholics among them, acknowledge the efforts that have begun, and suggest helpful pastoral approaches to build our common future..."

原来的译文分别是:对牧灵(教牧)的需求;对牧灵(教牧)的建议。 但此两种译法都被有关的神学专家否定了。究竟应该如何译?请各位指教。多谢!
