Zhonghua Wang lives in Germany and studied art history. On Holy
Saturday, she will be baptized by Pope Benedict XVI at the Basilica of
Saint Peter. Wang Zhonghua "People may find it hard to be both Christian and Chinese. By choosing this journey, I think the Pope will find joy. I want to show him, that China loves him very much. "
Zhonghua was introduced to Christianity four years ago, when her college friend Wei Zhang, was baptized Zhang Wei"I think she saw how I changed over the years. Before I only thought of myself, now I also think of others. I explained to her how to pray, and the importance of one's relationship with God. "
A year and a half ago she took part in a retreat, where she understood what it means to be "a child of God. " After that, her Christian faith deepened when she began practicing the religion. She noticed a big improvement.... and about a year ago, she decided to become officially Catholic. Wang Zhonghua"I know not everything will be easy after I'm baptized. Once I'm baptized I have a responsibility far greater than before. I have an obligation to become a saint in my daily life. "
After her baptism, Zhonghua says she will return to China. She doesn't fear being Catholic there, despite the difficulties she will face after her conversion.
