The red bucket
Sunday morning at the church in Shiguntang Village, Changyang County. As today is the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, Father Li Zhaoruo prepares to bless the congregation with holy water. The mass is very unadorned, with the holy water kept in a red plastic bucket. The Responsorial Psalm is written on a slab of chalkboard: "Who is this king of glory? It is the Lord!" (Psalm 24:8).
