As a campaigner for human rights in Burma, James Mawdsley was imprisoned for over a year in 2000-2001 after taking part in a pro-democracy protest in Rangoon. His recently started blog Ecce Mater Tua has three principal themes at the service of the purpose of his blog:
- renewal of the Church through a return to Traditional liturgy
(for the greater glory of God)
- the evangelization of Asia
(for the salvation of souls)
- Jewish-Catholic reconciliation
(for the coming of His Kingdom).
