Year of Faith: Cardinal John Tong Hon explains why Confession is key

2012-11-06

CARD. JOHN TONG HON
Bishop of Hong Kong (China)
"Honestly speaking, I receive this Sacrament at least every three weeks. I go to my confessor priest to receive the Sacrament of confession.”

In his diocese, Cardinal Tong Hon has a program to promote the formation of lay catechists. Over 1,000 are taking part to deepen their understanding of the Christian faith. It's something that has already had a positive impact.

CARD. JOHN TONG HON
Bishop of Hong Kong (China)
"I proposed four priorities in my diocese. The first was evangelization. In fact, this year at the Easter Vigil 3,500 adults were Baptized.”

The other priorities are to increase the number of training centers for priests. He says it's a way to promote religious life and to show Christianity as a real alternative to materialism and individualism.
