Hong Kong (Agenzia Fides) - "You have not only found the light, you also have to transform into light that illuminates the world", said Cardinal John Tong Hon, Bishop of Hong Kong, to the catechumens on the fourth Sunday of Lent, March 6. In view of Easter, the Lenten journey of the Year of Mercy of the diocese in Hong Kong intensifies. According to the information of the diocesan weekly Kung Kao Po sent to Agenzia Fides, 3,200 catechumens in the Diocese of Hong Kong will receive the sacraments of Christian initiation, baptism, confirmation and Eucharist, in the next Easter Vigil.
After baptism, you will have to witness faith through service to the Church, the care of the young and the weak. Because you have not only found the light, but you must also transform yourselves in light that illuminates the world". (NZ) (Agenzia Fides 17/03/2016)
