Anniversaries are not luxuries

The Apostleship of Prayer Centre III celebrated its 24th anniversary on October 23. It was a great day for us because our Mass was celebrated by Father Frederic Fornos, a delegate from Rome, and concelebrated by Father Anthonius Balubun Reynolds, the national director of the Apostleship of Prayer Hong Kong and Macau, as well as Father Rodolfo Jacobe, our director.

Father Fornos is the international director of the pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network and the Eucharistic Youth Movement. He also serves in the Catholic Digital Communication Conference in New York City. It is his third time to visit Hong Kong.

After a welcome given by Father Juan Beroch, Father Fornos spoke about the network prayer launched by Pope Francis for the world and the apps we can use to pray.

He reminded us to pray daily with sincerity and to contemplate on the most Sacred Heart of Jesus, as well as reassuring us that our mission is not only prayer, but action for compassion for the world.

Father Fornos also encouraged our community to launch the network prayer.

I would like to congratulate the Apostleship of Prayer centre III at Ss. Peter and Paul Church, Yuen Long.
