To be a current of grace

I felt so blissful meeting Michelle Moran, the president of International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services, during her visit here in Hong Kong at the Caritas Community Hall on February 21.

Before the general assembly of the Charismatic communities in Hong Kong, Moran spoke to around 60 leaders representing different groups. She told them how the Charismatic movement has progressed since its foundation in 1967.

Is it difficult to earn your employer’s trust?

 

 

I was surprised that one set of house keys was given to me by my employer on my first day of my work. I am grateful for their immediate trust in me. That is why in return I work hard and pray that I will always do my job properly and that I won’t be a disappointment to them. I have been working for the same employer since 2003.

Children can make a family strong

There is no place like home.” This saying never grows old. Wherever we go on earth, home is always where the heart belongs. Being with our families and loved ones gives us an inexplicable joy and happiness and sense of security and peace.

After 14 long years working in a foreign country, I was given this precious chance to be with my family, strengthening the space of distance, especially with my siblings.

To my lovely friend Sanna

Rainbow in the rain.

Dawn in the dark.

Sun in the clouds.

Sunlight in summer.

Flowers in spring.

Moon in autumn.

Snow in winter.

All are wonderful.

All are beautiful.

My first winter in Hong Kong

My first winter in Hong Kong, as I still recall, was 18 years ago. It was colder before, but not as cold as this year’s winter. My employer provided me with winter clothing and also a blanket. She even gave me a winter hat, which she made herself. During that time, my employers’ family had the flu, so they let me take an anti-flu injection to avoid flu and getting sick. Up to the present, I am still with the same employer and I thank God for their kindness.

City birds

After many years of being a registered absentee voter in a foreign land, I did not waste any time when I returned home. I reported immediately to the Commission on Elections Office to apply for a transfer, as well as for biometric registration.

I am very excited to cast my vote, to exercise my political right in May’s national and local election, as is right and just as citizens of our county.

Are Chinese New Year customs easy for you?

This is my fifth year celebrating the Lunar New Year here in Hong Kong. I don’t find anything wrong in following the Chinese practices during this festivity. I am also used to it. Since we are working here, I think we need to respect and adapt to their customs and traditions. I am always happy and excited to do what must be done in this occasion.

A new year and a Holy Door opened

On January 1, around 2,000 people gathered at the Immaculate Heart of Mary parish in Tai Po to witness the ceremony of the Opening of the Door of Mercy, which was presided over by John Cardinal Tong Hon.

The cardinal began the proceedings with the rite of introduction outside the church, saying, “Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Mother of God and open the Door of Mercy as instructed by Pope Francis. Let us now call upon the mercy of God.”

Kindness in the Jubilee of Mercy

May the merciful love of Jesus give us a chance to share with others, so that we may be able to help all people in need.

During a Mass on the Third Sunday of Advent celebrated by Father Luigi Bonalumi, the gospel reading (Luke 3:10-18) told us about the invitation from John the Baptist to change our way of life, in order to experience God’s forgiveness and to obtain peace to prepare for the coming of the Lord.
