Hong Kong diocese organizes youth prayer meeting

.- More than 120 young people attended a prayer meeting at St. Andrew’s Parish church, organized by the Archdiocese of Hong Kong’s Commission for Vocations. According to the Fides News Service, the prayer meeting, held Jan. 21, focused on God’s love for humanity and humanity’s response of love for God. The theme was: “I truly love you.”

The event invited young people to pray for vocations and to contemplate God’s love and how, through this Love, the Lord calls every person to love others. Fr. Paul Kam Po Wai, the first Hong Kong priest sent on mission to Africa, shared his faith journey with the young people.

A young participant asked the priest how he should respond to God’s call.

“How did Mary reply to the Lord for the birth of Christ?” Fr. Kam replied. “She said: ‘Be it done as you will!’”

“If a young person hears the Lord’s call he or she must have the courage to accept the call, like Mary accepted the mission entrusted by the Lord,” he said.
