St. Ann’s Solemn Novena offers us the opportunity to learn a world vision of faith from the Passionists in China.
Father Linus Lombard suggested “Let China Love You.”
The death of the three priests in 1929 remind us about our personality of faith. How we can pray and support peoples of the word, live and cope with personal anxieties or perhaps have a stubborn faith.
As a Catholic news reporter based in Chongqing, China, Father Cormac Shanahan was provided the opportunity to meet Mao Zedong in Yan’an, China in July 1944. When he gave his travel diary to be part of the Passionist China Collection the content reminds us how faith and diplomacy can be an ongoing gift to understand cross cultural history and mutual understanding in the the world of today.
