Reviews about Hongjialou Cathedral

Helen

5/5
Reviewed on 10 Sep, 2015

The scenery around us is always the easiest to miss. Hong Lou Church has passed many times since its childhood, but this year it is the first time to enter. The non-Christian visiting time written at the entrance is up to 5 p.m., but it's more than 5 p.m. when we finished our work at Shanda, we took our chances and did not expect it to be open again. Maybe that's the reason for Sunday. As soon as I entered the gate, I saw several posters on the propaganda board "Praying for the Great Mountain" and looked closely before I knew that it was the Church that had invaded the church's land in "Statement". In fact, I wanted to use the word "denounce" but after all, the words used by the church are relatively peaceful, although there are anger and grievance, but they are embodied in the doctrine of tolerance and love, so it is better to use the words "statement" which are not so strong emotional color. As for the truth of the matter, it is not good for outsiders to draw a conclusion just by saying a few words. But it does seem justified. Let's hope that the wrong party in the incident can solve this problem in good faith. Put aside this somewhat awkward time. The church itself is really beautiful. It deserves to be one of the three Catholic churches. The interior of the church is also open to non-believers. Just be careful not to wear slippers, trousers or skirts above the knees, and not to take photos or make noise inside. There is a Mass service at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, which is sacred to believers. So after 5:30, non-believers can not sit in the front, but they can visit the area separated from the back. According to the staff, Mass is absolutely quiet within an hour, unable to speak, ordinary people may not be able to insist, so sitting in the back is convenient for everyone to enter and exit without affecting the ceremony. See the billboard also says that you can receive free extracurricular weddings, but I personally think that if you are not a believer, it is better not to hold a wedding in the church. I didn't stay much because I wasn't a Christian. But listen to the staff to explain the teachings, but also very beneficial. In fact, no matter what we believe in, as long as we can be honest and kind, care for the world and contribute to society, we should be respected.
