Birthday of Blessed John Paul II

According to the chief exorcist of Rome, Father Gabriele Amorth, Blessed John Paul II is an effective intercessor against evil spirits.

Father Amorth said:

“I have asked the demon more than once, ‘Why are you so scared of John Paul II and I have had two different responses, both interesting. One, ‘because he disrupted my plans.’ And, I think that he is referring to the fall of communism in Russia and Eastern Europe. The collapse of communism.”

“Another response that he gave me, ‘because he pulled so many young people from my hands.’ There are so many young people who, thanks to John Paul II, were converted. Perhaps some were already Christian but not practicing, but then with John Paul II they came back to the practice. ‘He pulled so many young people out of my hands.’”

Baptisms on Easter Week

April 30 was a very special day for me and for the new Catholics. After much preparation, 18 Chinese people were received into the Catholic Church. There were 6 adults, 3 teenagers, and 9 children. The adults and teenagers also received the Sacrament of Confirmation. 15 of the newly baptized received 1st Communion.

After Baptism, I will continue to give instructions to the new Catholics on the Sacraments, the Mass, prayers, and the spiritual life. Please keep them in your prayers.
