    This Festschrift is presented to Father Angelo Lazzarotto P.I.M.E. on the occasion of his 85th birthday on May 14, 2010. It is a personal homage from editors, authors, and congratulants to a dear friend, a humble priest and missionary, a scholar, a person of dialogue, an advisor, a sensitive mediator and a careful analyst who greatly contributed to the cause of Catholicism in China and to Sino-Western friendship.

    "This Festschrift compiled by missionary Angelo Lazzarotto’s friends and colleagues presents a fitting tribute to a longtime friend of China and founder of the Holy Spirit Study Centre in Hong Kong. Unusually, perhaps, for a Festschrift, it is also an excellent collection of essays."
