Small Town, Big Mission: Chapel of St. Joseph’s Seminary and St. Lazarus’ Church of Macau

Similar to the Ruins of St. Paul's, the Chapel of St. Joseph's Seminary has been a cradle of missionary formation for over two centuries. St. Lazarus' Church, nicknamed Lepers Temple, used to be the chapel of a lepers' hospice, which developed into a community of Chinese Catholics that put faith and love into practice. Both churches give rise to numerous true stories of evangelization and charity work, reflecting the spectrum of Catholicism from contemplation to action, knowledge to charity.

Spiritual Talk – Fr Ho talks about Blessed Solanus Casey

21, he entered the seminary and loved the lifestyle, but theology was taught in German and Latin, so he struggled, and eventually his superiors suggested that he enter a religious order. He applied to the Jesuits, Franciscans, and the Capuchins and all three orders accepted him, so he prayed a novena with his mother and sister, hearing Mary distinctly tell him on the last day, “Go to Detroit”, the headquarters of the Capuchins. After journeying through a snowstorm, he fell asleep at the door of St. Bonaventure Friary. Awoken by bells, he joined the procession to Christmas Midnight Mass. He joined the Capuchins as Friar Francis Solanus, but as his grades were so poor, his superiors ordained him in 1904 as a “simplex priest” – one who can say Mass but not preach or hear confessions. He also served as porter to the Friary and was able to console the sick and the poor. Fr. Solanus supported the Seraphic Mass Association, which would pray for donors to the Capuchins, and every time he enrolled a donor, miracles would occur. Fr. Solanus died in 1957, having served God with the little gifts given to him. His last words were “I give my soul to Jesus Christ.”
