Lunar New Year Celebrations....

Lunar New Year is a special time of family re-unions for the Chinese.  “To the various peoples of the Far East—the Chinese, Vietnamese, Koreans and others, who are celebrating the Lunar New Year today,  I wish that the aspirations of these peoples for a happy and prosperous life can be fulfilled” Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI said from his study window on February 10, the first day of the Year of the Snake. 

We Missionaries in China had our share of celebrations as well! Here are a few stills:

Lunar New Year in Family

After Mass, the 'table'.We share a few moments of the Lunar New Year celebration at our home in Zhuhai (China):The lady in black, right, is Catholic, owner of a factory with more than 100 employees and offers a large living room on every Sunday at our disposal for the celebration of the Eucharist in this city of Zhuhai with more than 2 million inhabitants, but there is no 'church'.
See if you guess what kind of food we are enjoying ...
