Catholic corner at Book Fair

HONG KONG (SE): Various Catholic groups took part in the Hong Kong Book Fair held at the Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai. The Catholic corner was kicked off with a blessing ceremony on July 15.

John Cardinal Tong Hon said that he encourages people to read to help their spiritual growth and deepen their knowledge of the faith, which can strengthen their witness to the faith in their lives.

He quoted Pope Benedict XVI as saying in his 2007 encyclical, Saved by Hope, that the press and the media can help the work of evangelisation. “It is not only about imparting messages on faith, but also about living out faith.”
