Blind Chinese priest speaks on ‘See Mercy’ at Chinese ministry events
January 26th, 2016
By Catholic San Francisco

A Chinese Canadian priest born blind shared how he “sees mercy” Jan. 9 during a two-and-a-half hour evangelical event at St. Mary’s Cathedral hosted by CROSS Radio. CROSS Radio is an archdiocesan Chinese ministry program “with a mission to spread God’s words through our weekly broadcasting” the last 17 years, said Mary Wong, one of the radio show’s producers.

Father Francis Ching, a priest of Companions of the Cross, was born with glaucoma in Hong Kong and diagnosed legally blind. Born in 1972, he immigrated to Toronto in 1986 and was ordained a priest in 2005. Based at a parish in Toronto, he is spiritual director for Eastern Canada Catholic Chinese Living Camp, and actively involved in the Fountain of Love and Life Ministry, a Chinese Catholic TV and Radio programming.

In addition to the Jan. 9 event pictured, Father Ching celebrated 9 a.m. Mass at St. Monica on Jan. 10, and presented part two of “See Mercy” at Holy Name of Jesus’ Flanagan Center that afternoon. He also gave a talk at Holy Name on “Holy Spirit in the Bible” Jan. 13 and gave an all-day retreat, “Joy of the Gospel – Work of the Holy Spirit,” Jan. 16 at Holy Name.
