OBSERVAT I ONS IN THE ORIENT

To reach the preparatory school we had to cross the railroad track, and just beyond this point the Bishop pointed out a large tract of land covering many acres, for which he paid twenty
dollars a few years ago and which has already advanced considerably in value. He has planed trees, for wood is a scarce commodity here, and another generation will benefit by this
precious investment of a few dollars.

The boys of the school and their professors — three priests, a Hollander and two Chinese — were all glad to welcome the Bishop home from his trip to Tientsin and they were pleased
to see a priest from America. They are a bright-looking set of young aspirants and number a hundred and twelve.

As we were leaving the "little seminary" we saw the village church, which a heavy rain had reduced to ruins, and we looked into the house of a catechist, a rather well-to-do man whose
home gave a fair idea of the kind of place where a missionary bishop or priest may find shelter and say Mass when on a tour.
It was not dirt-proof.

The report of spiritual fruit in this vicariate is unusually good, the more so as Bishop de Vienne holds out no advantages, such, for example, as sustenance for catechumens during their period of training.

His vicariate contains about 65,000 Christians. Last year
there were baptized :

2,220 children of Christians

946 adults

50 adults at the point of death

20,072 pagan infants at the point of death

Communions of devotion during the year were 376,082.

西方的教堂總是建在城市中心,火車站旁邊;中國的廟宇總是建在煙霧封鎖的深山,或者連曲徑都難得找到老林。

 

記得我到澳洲的第一天,才從墨爾本的最主要的火車站--弗林德斯街火車站(Flinders St Station)出來。抬頭就看到了聖保祿(ST Paul)大教堂。每天很多人從郊區的四面八方來到城市上...
