One By One

The Samaritan Women of the World

Victims of human trafficking need not lose hope with their lives. There is always Jesus who will be there to restore their dignity, accept them for who they are, and make them live worthwhile lives. Jesus will cure their loneliness and their guilt, no matter the circumstances.

Friends Until the End

When one joins the catechumenate, they will feel how it is to belong and to be held by the love of its members all held together by a loving God who will not abandon anyone until the end of their days on earth.

Louder Than Words

A French priest chose to stay in China as a silent witness of his faith, evangelizing not by preaching but by living through his daily life the teachings of the Gospel. He was an extraordinary man of action, rather than of words.

Her Own Decision

This is the story of someone who, after having listened to the Gospel and being touched by it, took the decision to be baptized. The neophyte experienced that the Church is the place where freedom is enhanced, not eliminated.

The Modern “Secret” Christians

In mainland China, there is a growing presence of educated professional people who, outside the Church structures, bear witness to God’s love in their lives. Their discreet presence may be an effective witness to the Gospel values in an increasing materialistic Chinese society.

The Tears of Lao Wang

The story of Lao Wang highlights the fact that evangelization, especially in the Chinese world, is done one by one, a person at a time. This column will narrate stories of people I met on my missionary journey and who were touched by Jesus in mysterious ways.
