Spiritual Talk – Fr Ho talks about Pope Pius X

Pope Pius X was known as the Pope of the Eucharist for his devotion to the Eucharist, and his promotion of proper Confession to dispose people to receive the Eucharist. Born in 1835 as the second of ten children, his father was a mailman and his mother worked part-time mending clothes. Aged ten, he felt a religious calling and he was ordained in 1858. He frequently visited his parishioner’s homes and taught them catechesis. In 1884, he was consecrated Bishop of Mantua, wrote “The Catechism of St. Pius X” in a question-answer format, and built schools. As bishop he visited his parishes, listening to Confessions and altar serving. In 1893, he was consecrated Patriarch of Venice and in 1903, elected Pope, taking the motto “To restore all things in Christ”. Once, he encountered a boy who asked him, “Bishop, sir, why do you not give Jesus to me?” He was moved, and as Pope, he reduced the minimum age of First Communion to seven, having seen the boy able to differentiate the Body of Christ from ordinary bread. In his words, “Holy Communion is the shortest and safest way to Heaven”.

Spiritual Talk – Fr Ho talks about Pope Pius XII

Born in 1876, the “Marian Pope” Venerable Pius XII was ordained a priest and then consecrated bishop on May 13, 1917 – the day of the first Fatima apparition. In 1939, he was elected Pope and, following Mary’s command at Fatima, consecrated the world and Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1942 and 1952 respectively. Sister Lúcia believed that this consecration helped end the Second World War. Throughout the war, he worked for peace and helped the Jewish people escape Nazi atrocities. In Rome, an important rabbi was so moved by this that he was baptized into the Church as “Eugenio Maria”, the Pope’s birth name. In 1950, he defined the dogma of the Assumption and saw the Sun dance miraculously four times. In the aftermath of the war, many bodies were never recovered, and the dogma of Mary’s bodily assumption into Heaven reminded people of God’s promise to resurrect the bodies of all the dead, thus consoling the grieving families. Pope Pius instituted two important Marian feasts. First, he instituted the Feast of the Immaculate Heart in 1944, to bring about world peace, freedom to the Church, and conversion of sinners. Then in 1954, he established the Feast of the Queenship of Mary, for the veneration of Mary’s mercy and motherly authority. The same year, he instituted a “Marian year” and in a message to the Philippine people proclaimed the Rosary their “national Marian devotion” and their country the “Kingdom of the Rosary”. He also wrote an encyclical to promote the praying of the Rosary in families, and so promote a devout spirit of prayer and family unity. Pope Pius XII loved Mary deeply and brought the Church “through Mary to Jesus”.

若望福音 21:15-19 在今天的福音中,耶穌三次問伯多祿愛不愛祂,伯多祿在耶穌第三次問他時感到憂愁,他大概是以為耶穌不相信他。耶穌本來可以問:「你為什麼不認我?」,但祂沒有。耶穌不因過去的錯而譴責我們,祂在乎的是我們會否選擇愛祂。 伯多祿擔任教會的領袖,是耶穌基督親自挑選的。我們在宗徒大事錄看到伯多祿在傳福音時,聖神真的臨在他身上,人們甚至希望能被伯多祿的影子遮在身上,以得到治癒。教宗是教會的領袖,他是宗徒伯多祿的繼承人。我們相信聖神會繼續帶領他,牧養天主的子民。讓我們時常為教宗和他的意向祈禱。 以下是教宗今個月的祈禱意向: 祈禱意向: 為執掌司法的人,能始終恪守公正廉潔和正直良知祈禱。 傳教意向: 為修院,特別是傳教區教會的修院,按照基督之心,培養全部獻身福音宣講的牧人祈禱 生命恩泉早前製作了一連兩集有關教宗的特輯,若你還未看過,請參閱以下網站: http://fll.cc/pope-special/pope-special/ John 21:15-19 In today’s gospel, Jesus asked Peter three times if he loved Him.
