Zhonghua Wang is from Beijing and studies in Germany. She tells how she comes to be baptized by Pope Benedict XVI in Rome, during the Easter Vigil, 2011..

I am Zhonghua Wang from Beijing, China. I’m currently studying in Germany. I met the Catholic faith through my best friend. After that encounter, especially after finding the Catholic faith and Opus Dei, my life changed drastically.

Because for us life is very difficult sometimes in a foreign country,
living in a strange place. We find very many obstacles, much more than other people. Especially the language, loneliness, being far away from our families.

But I have found a way after getting to know about St Josemaria.
Many so-called difficulties can be overcome through prayer. Prayer for me is a dialogue with myself and above all with God. It’s not only about getting what we want through our prayers, but rather about our life being simplified through praying. In other words, the road we travel becomes clearer.

I am very grateful for the spiritual support of Saint Josemaria through prayer. I am really happy that this Saturday I’m going to be baptized a Catholic. Thank you very much, Saint Josemaria!
