    This chapter begins with the Fifth General Chapter of the Precious Blood Sisters in July 1941. It discusses the government’s ratification of the Precious Blood schools in the second half of 1941. Then it moves onto the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong in December 1941. Also the chapter mentions the sisters’ temporary residence in St. Teresa’s Church on Waterloo Road in Kowloon Tong, and the Japanese confiscation of the Precious Blood Hospital. It explains the loss of contact between the sisters in the villages and those in the Motherhouse in Shamshuipo. It describes the continuation of Tack Ching Girls’ Middle School, the canonical visitation of the Motherhouse, and the critical financial situation of the sisters. Finally, it talks about the Sixth General Chapter in 1944, the end of the Second World War in 1945, the purchase of the Precious Blood Church in 1946, and the Seventh General Chapter in 1948.
