Feasting with Family
On Sunday, January 15, 2017, it was my delight to join members of the Chinese Catholic Community for a ‘pre-Chinese New Year’ feast. The food was delicious, but the fellowship and sense of community was even better. I was blessed by the Hail Mary in Cantonese—in any language there is a wonderful cadence to this prayer that speaks directly to the heart, and it was a privilege to hear it.
My thanks are extended to organizer Ben Chow, his wife, Vicky, and all who made the ‘Pre-Year of the Rooster’ lunch a celebration of our Family of God.
