Three priests and four deacons were recently ordained in southwestern China. Some of them are recent converts. Their ordination took place this past 28 Oct.  in the town of Chongqing, about 1500 kms  southwest of Peking. The dioceses of Chong­­qing welcomed the new priests Frs. Wang Wanhong, Xia Wei and Wu Chuan­lu; while  the dioceses of Wanzhou (Wan­xian) took in deacons Zhang Yonglin,  Jiang Weizuo, Huang Zhen'an and Peng Enbing. Both dioceses form part of the municipality of Chongqing.  Msgr. Giuseppe Xu Zhi­xuan, bishop of Wanzhou, presided over their ordination with 30 concelebrants from both dioceses and from provinces near Sichuan and Yun­nan, and Hong Kong. The new priests and deacons, between the ages of 24 and 34, tell us about their personal  journey of faith: Though sometimes difficult, it nevertheless led them to fulfill their vocation.
