Food for Thought Christmas Special: Fabulous Four from Sabah

John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ, preached repentance in the wilderness. He ate locusts and wild honey. Some Bible scholars think that “locusts” could also refer to some kind of bean. Adapting from a famous Malaysian dish, our version of the “Fabulous Four from Sabah” includes sweet peas as well as fried dried fish mixed with honey to imitate the feel of eating locusts.

Spiritual Talk – Fr Ho talks about the Pentecost

On the fiftieth day after Easter, we celebrate Pentecost, the day the Holy Spirit descended and the birthday of the Church. The Church is the body of Christ, with the Virgin Mary as the neck, connecting us to the head of Christ, and the Holy Spirit as the soul. The Church continues the work of Christ on earth, bringing people to eternal life in heaven. Christ had a threefold mission: as prophet, priest, and king. The Church prophesizes by teaching the Gospel to all nations, acts as priest by offering up worship and sanctifies the people through the Sacraments, and leads people to do good and avoid evil.
