They founded "Living Faith Society" and "Talentum Bookshop", hoping to touch more Catholics and inspire them to evangelize and serve the Church through these two organizations.

On this week's "Love and Life", we will continue to look at "Theology of the Body" to discuss the Catholic Church's teachings on sex and marriage. Marriage is a sign that points to the Holy Trinity as well as the union between Christ and the Church. We will also examine the meaning of chastity and why the Church requires religious clergy to abide by the rule of celibacy.

On this week's "Love and Life", we will continue to look at "Theology of the Body" to discuss the Catholic Church's teachings on sex and marriage. When God created Man and Woman He had a purpose, but original sin caused the human race to lose the correct understanding of sex and the body. We will also analyze why the Church is opposed to certain acts such as contraception and artificial insemination.

Two Becomes One

On this week's "Love and Life", we invited two experts on "Theology of the Body" to discuss the Catholic Church's teachings on sex and marriage. Man and woman originated from the same body, and the union of man and woman truly reflects the love among the Holy Trinity as one body. The distinctive qualities of this love is proclaimed in the marriage vows, as this love can only exist on Earth within a marriage. In addition, we will also analyze why the Church is opposed to certain sexual acts that are prevalent in society.

The Ascension of the Lord

The Ascension of the Lord “Spirit”, “apostles”, “Mary”, “prayer” – What better ways to reveal the Church? How can any one of these constitutive elements be missing when the Church being revealed is the Church of Christ?

God’s house

The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus

如好鏡子會反映對面的影像,天主正義的審判也將會反映我們的作為。在耶穌的比喻中,富翁沒有憐憫躺臥在他大門前的乞丐,所以當他渴求憐憫時,也沒有得到應允。在比喻中,這富翁揀選了世上的幸福,天天奢華地宴樂,乞丐拉匝祿卻受盡了苦;於是拉匝祿死後得到安慰,富翁死後卻要受苦。 可能許多人會問,有沒有人能在這一世和永生中都能脫免苦難?相信即使不是不可能,也是很難的事,因為從亞當犯了罪開始,人的一切勞動、貧困、悲傷和疾病等等的苦,都是罪的刑罰。即使人想脫離罪惡,每天要克服自己的慾望、憤怒、虛榮、驕傲等等,在靈性和肉體上都是痛苦的鬥爭,但如不背起自己的十字架,又怎能跟隨耶穌並且得救? (本文以英文為準) As the best mirrors represents an image of the face opposite to it, so also is the just judgment of God adapted to our dispositions. Where the rich man because he did not pity the poor as Lazarus lay at his gate, is not heard when he needs mercy for himself. All […]

To risk or not to risk

Second Sunday of Lent Lenten season serves as an invitation to us to change. But changes are not always welcome in our comfortable lives. The greatest risk in our faith journey is to not take any risks, and to be too comfortable with the status quo. Yet, only under one condition should these risks be […]

Make the Wise Choice

Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time God has given us the freedom of choice. He allows us to choose Him, or to reject Him; to choose righteousness, or to choose evil. The temptations around us always attack us where we are weakest, luring us to choose evil as opposed to righteousness. As we find ourselves struggling […]

Will you be taken, or left behind?

耶穌曾多次談及末世,亦即是人子再來、人接受天主審判的日子。沒有人知道這時期甚麼時候會到,但可以肯定這時期必然會來,而且屆時將有很多人喪亡。就像在諾厄和羅特的日子裡,人本來過著平常的日子,災禍卻突然襲來,除了諾厄、羅特和他們的家人因得到天主特別的召叫而躲過危難,其他人無一倖免。 作為耶穌的信徒,我們已得到祂一而再的提示,要時刻為這末世的日子作好準備,因為當那日子到來時,我們才醒覺便已太遲。耶穌也以羅特的妻子來提醒我們,不要留戀世上的事物;天主已為我們準備好永恆的生命,但過份留戀現世,卻會喪失真正而永恆的福樂。所以祂說:「在那一日,那在屋頂上的,不要下來拿取在屋裏的器具;那在田裏的,也同樣不要回家。你們要記得羅特的妻子!不論誰,若想保全自己的性命,必要喪失性命;凡喪失性命的,必要保存性命。」救恩來自天主,但每人對天主不同的回應,會令各人得到不同的命運。正如耶穌說:「兩個人同在一張床上,一個被接去,而一個被遺棄;兩個女人一起推磨,一個被接去,而一個被遺棄。」你想成為被接去的一位,還是被遺棄?讓我們時刻醒悟祈禱,為主而生活,那麼末日何時到來,我們也不會感到措手不及。 這篇默想由生命恩泉文摘編輯小組撰寫,內容以下列文章為根據: Commentaries on the daily readings by Sacred Space, 常年期第三十二週星期五. Jesus described a number of times what the end of the world will be like; though we don’t know when this day will come, we are sure that it will come for sure. Similar to the days of Noah and Lot, God’s judgment […]
