A Gift From Cardinal Joseph Zen

Who is Cardinal Joseph Zen? See here and here.

Cardinal Joseph Zen from Hong Kong visited Calgary on May 16, 2007 (Wednesday) and celebrated the Mass at 6:30 p.m. in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church (the only Chinese Catholic Church in Calgary), to pray for all Chinese Catholics around the world.

Quote from OLPH:
During this trip, Cardinal Joseph Zen is going to attend the upcoming 27th North America Chinese Clergy, Religious and Laity Convention in Chicago on May 24, 2007. He will also meet with Chinese Catholics and clergy in various cities including Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Toronto.

And yes, I went to the Mass. Surprisingly, everyone got a little gift from Cardinal Zen. Here it is:

It's a key chain. One side is the coat of arms and motto of Cardinal Zen. See here for more information about that coat of arms. The motto in English says: "Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you." (1 Pet 5:7)


The other side is a picture of The Virgin Mary and baby Jesus painted in traditional Chinese style called Our Lady of China.
Regretting for not taking my camera to the Mass. (Damn it!)
...anyway, thank Cardinal Zen for visiting our church and for this nice gift!
