Oldest Chinese priest is like fine wine

Before the ferry anchored, a Trappist monk with a long, white beard was already waving from the pier. Fr Nicholaus Kao Se-tsean then greeted each person as the visitors landed. An hour-long journey by boat had brought them from downtown Hong Kong to an abbey on Lantau Island. They came to "celebrate the miracle of the longevity of Father Kao," said Dom Anastasius Li, the abbot and main celebrant at Fr Kao's 110th birthday Mass. "The older the wine, the finer it will be," and the wine in a 110-year-old wineskin is fine indeed, the abbot told the 150 guests.
