Newly appointed Vatican official Archbishop Savio Hon Tai-Fai says he made three petitions to God during his episcopal ordination, including a request for three more petitions. The new secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples who is also a Salesian said he was following the example  of St. John Bosco who had advised that candidates to the priesthood may make three petitions to God, Zenit reports. Archbishop Hon, who is the first Chinese to occupy a senior post in the Curia, was ordained to the episcopate Feb. 5 by Benedict. “Before my ordination,” he revealed, “I asked for the peace on earth, and the spread of Gospel in China.” His said his third petition was for three more petitions. He celebrated a homecoming mass in Hong Kong last week. He then traveled on Wednesday to Taiwan to make his first pastoral visit as secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.
