Jesus and His Rock

An honest but impetuous fisherman, Peter gave up everything to follow Jesus when he was called. But he was weak and even denied Jesus three times. Yet our Lord not only forgave him, but also made Peter the head of his Church on earth. Fountain of Grace takes you to the Holy Land to relive the story of how St. Peter became the Rock on which Christ built his Church.

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.

Pope Francis: All of Christian life is the work of Jesus, the Holy Spirit to prepare a place

In the homily, he said: “Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Have faith in God, in me”. And what […]

Pope Francis: the time of waiting for the Lord’s return is the time of action

教宗方濟各於週三接見信眾時提及十個童女和塔冷通的比喻。他說:我們正正活在基督首次降臨人間和祂第二次再來的時空中。在十個童女的比喻(瑪竇福音 25:1-13),她們在等新郎來到期間睡著了。在得知新郎快要來到,她們預備拿燈去迎接時,她們當中明智的五位有帶著油,而糊塗的只能去買油,到她們回來時,新郎已跟準備好的共赴婚宴。糊塗的再在外敲門已經太遲。新郎就是天主,等待的時間就是在最後審判前祂給我們的時間,祂仁慈而有耐性。在這段時間,我們要點著信、望、愛的燈,我們要把心向美善和真理開放,我們要依據天主的旨意來生活,因為我們不知道何時祂會再來。 他亦提到塔冷通的比喻(瑪竇福音 25:14-30):主人在遠行前把財產托付給僕人。按照他們的才能,他給了一個僕人五個『塔冷通』,一個給了兩個,一個給了一個;然後動身走了。在他離開期間,兩個僕人賺了更多塔冷通,而第三個只把銀子藏了。主人稱讚那兩位僕人,而把第三位丟在外面的黑暗中。基督徒如把天主賜的才能埋藏起來,不能算是基督徒!那是一位不會感謝天主恩賜的基督徒!這讓我們明白在這等待基督再來的時刻,是行動的時刻,是要把天主的恩賜不用在自己身上,而是為祂,為教會,為他人,是令世界變遷更好的時候。尤其是在這充滿危機的時候,我們不要封閉自我,把屬靈的、知識上的、物質上的恩賜埋藏起來,而要開放自己,與他人團結一致,留意別人的需要。 On Wednesday, Pope Francis spoke of the parables of the ten virgins and the talents. In the parable of the ten virgins (Matthew 25:1-13), ten girls are waiting for the arrival of the bridegroom, but he delays and they fall asleep. At the sudden announcement that the bridegroom is coming, all […]

Pope Francis: The Church’s journey always takes place between the Cross and the Resurrection

教宗方濟各於週二(4月23日)與一些樞機主持彌撒,當天亦是教宗主保聖人聖喬治的瞻禮。他在講道中說:「聖經說: 『信而歸主的人,數目很多。』當巴爾納伯看到那麼多人,他感受到喜悅。『他一來到,看見天主所賜的恩惠就很喜歡』。他的喜樂是福傳者的喜樂。這喜樂由迫害開始,由極大的憂愁開始,而在喜樂中完結。教會就是這樣向前,如一位聖人所說,我這刻想不起是那一位:『在世界的迫害和天主的慰藉中』,這就是教會的生命。若我們想向世俗進發,與世界作一點妥協,如瑪加伯般受誘惑,我們便無法得到天主的慰藉。而如果我們只尋求不來自天主的慰藉,這只是很表面的慰藉,人性的慰藉。教會的旅程總是徘徊在十字架和復活之間,總是在迫害和天主的慰藉中。這就是當走的道路,走這路的人走得沒錯。」 Pope Francis celebrated mass with some cardinals on Tuesday (April 23), which is the feast of St. George, Pope Francis’ patron saint. He said in the homily: ‘The text says: ” And a large number of people was added to the Lord” – when he saw those crowds, he experienced joy. ” When […]
