Since 2003, the year I began my journey to follow my priestly vocation, I have not had the opportunity to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival with my parents.

Pope pushes mooncake drive

HONG KONG (UCAN): An initiative of the former bishop of Hong Kong, Joseph Cardinal Zen Ze-kiun, to give mooncakes to everyone in prison in Hong Kong at the mid-autumn festival has been taken up by Pope Francis.

The pope’s announcement has generated a flood of cash donations since it was published last week.
