「Spiritual Talk」Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – Fr. Anthony Ho

This weekend, the Church celebrates the Nineteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time and today's Gospel reading comes from Matthew 14:22-33, which describes the Miracle of Walking on Water. Jesus had dismissed the crowds and ascended a mountain to pray to His Father when the disciples encountered a storm. Their ship could make no progress and they were stuck in the middle of the sea. Suddenly, they saw Jesus walking on the water. At first thinking He was a ghost, they were afraid but Jesus said, "Do not be afraid, it is I!", reminding us of the words God used to reveal Himself to Moses: "I am who am." Peter asked Jesus to make him walk on the water too and at first all was well while he looked at Jesus, but once he saw the wind and waves around him, he became scared and began to sink. He cried out and Jesus reached out to grab him, criticizing his little faith in order to strengthen him. Afterwards, the wind and waves subsided, showing how Jesus was the Son of God who controlled even the natural realm. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus is recognized as the Son of God three times: (1) after Jesus walks on water, (2) before Peter is chosen to be His "rock", and (3) after the centurion sees Jesus die. Controlling the wind and waves is the work of God in the Old Testament, so this shows that Jesus is not only the Son of God, but has a divine nature as well. In our lives, we will encounter storms just like St. Peter and begin to doubt, but we only need to keep our gaze on Jesus and ask for His help to obtain it.

「Spiritual Talk」Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – Fr. Anthony Ho

This weekend, the Church celebrates the Eighteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time and in the Gospel reading, it is dusk and Jesus has finished teaching the crowds, so the disciples tell them to leave and buy food to eat. But even though the disciples have only five loaves and two fish, Jesus says it is enough to feed the crowds, so He tells them all to sit and like the host of a feast, blesses the bread, breaks it, and gives it to His disciples to feed the crowds. Shockingly, the bread and fish do not run out. God throughout history uses various ways to care for His people, such as the manna in the desert, the miraculous food that the Prophet Elijah fed the widow, and the twelve loaves with which the Prophet Elisha fed one hundred people. Jesus worked this miracle to not only show that He was greater than all the Old Testament prophets, but also to foreshadow the coming Holy Eucharist. Just as Jesus fed the crowds at dusk, He also fed His disciples during the Last Supper at dusk. And after all were fed, twelve baskets were left, symbolizing how Jesus would use His twelve Apostles to save the twelve Tribes of Israel. Only when the Apostles gave what little food they had to Jesus did He work the miracle to feed the crowds. We must also accommodate God's saving grace and whole-heartedly give all our prayers, works, and sacrifices to God in order to help many souls.

「Spiritual Talk」Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – Fr. Anthony Ho

This weekend, the Church celebrates the Seventeenth Sunday of Ordinary Time and the Gospel reading from Matthew chapter 13 contains the Parable of the Hidden Treasure and the Parable of the Pearl. A man accidentally finds a treasure sells all he has to obtain it. The Church must likewise give up everything in order to catch all humanity under her nets, regardless of whether the men she catches are good or evil. Many people are called by God to enter His Church but only the good will be chosen to enter Heaven. The Apostles understood Jesus' parable and that they were to link the Law of the Old Testament with His teaching in the New Testament. They were to be God's fishermen and not judges, for judgment belongs to God alone. Each soul has the potential to be saved by God so the Apostles were not to waste time judging them, but laboured at proclaiming the Gospel to all peoples. St. Teresa of Calcutta once said, "If you judge people, you have no time to love them." In our everyday lives, we might have many conflicts with people but at the end of the day, we must remember that God wishes for them all to be saved and will only separate the good from the evil on the last day.

「Spiritual Talk」Sixteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time – Fr. Anthony Ho

This weekend, the Church celebrates the Sixteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time and the Gospel reading contains the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares, in which evil men sow bad seeds among the good. St. Isidore once said that God permits the good and the evil to live amongst each other until the Last Day so that the evil would have time to repent, just as Saints Matthew and Peter received second chances from Jesus after repenting of their sins. Good and evil are intricately linked in this world and uprooting evil will often uproot good as well. Good things are also linked to suffering and pain. Just as parents will bring their children to the dentist, so God permits us to suffer in order to obtain the greater good of spiritual healing. If we give up because we fear suffering, then love will die in us. Pope Benedict XVI once said that the temptation for many people is to expect speedy progress in the spiritual life and they then become disappointed once their progress is slower than expected. Our spiritual journey is often more like the slow and steady growth of a seed and cannot be hastened. Those of us with a mission to evangelize for God must remember to offer up the speed of their missions' growth to God and let them develop under His guidance.

「Spiritual Talk」Fifteeth Sunday of Ordinary Time – Fr. Anthony Ho

This weekend, the Church celebrates the Fifteeth Sunday of Ordinary Time and the Gospel reading from Matthew 13 contains the Parable of the Sower. After being baptized, our hearts become soil for God's grace but once we encounter difficulties, our hearts harden and are unable to receive God's Word, prevent it from taking root, or suffocate the seedlings. We ought to both listen and obey the Gospel; Jesus knew that no parable, no matter how good, could open the hardened hearts of men, but only God's grace could open them to receive His Word. Sin hardens our hearts so God gives us sufferings in this life as a medicine for our spiritual illnesses. If we want to prepare our hearts to receive His Word, we must first set aside time to pray, keep the commandments, do good, and avoid evil. As every good farmer knows, a bountiful harvest needs not only good seeds, but also good soil. We take care of our physical hearts through exercise and healthy eating, so why should we not prepare our spiritual hearts through mentally preparing ourselves before prayer to listen and obey? Kimberley Hahn, the wife of Biblical scholar Scott Hahn, knew that God wanted her to become a Catholic but her heart was resistant. One day, her father asked her whether she had prayed the prayer he asked her to pray: "O Lord, I will go where you want me to go, do what you want me to do, say what you want me to say, let go of whatever you want me to let go." Kimberley was afraid to pray this prayer because she was afraid that God was calling her to become a Catholic, but her father told her that the prayer was not an opportunity for her to tell God what she wanted, but to change heart to accept God's plan for her, until she could shout out every word sincerely. Kimberley asked the Holy Spirit for the strength to pray it, and three to four days later she was finally able to pray it. She was still afraid but had the freedom and joy of being able to fully explore the faith, and she understood that God's plan was indeed the best for her. Eventually, she converted to the Catholic faith. When we have internal struggles in our heart, we must ask for God's grace to prepare the spiritual soil of our hearts to accept His Word.

「Spiritual Talk」Fourteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time – Fr. Anthony Ho

This weekend, the Church celebrates the Fourteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time. In the time of Christ, the Jews believed that careful study of the Law was the best way to obtain wisdom and understand God. But this way of thinking made ordinary people believe that wisdom was far above them and an inaccessible academic field - unless they learned the original language and dedicated the time to studying the Scriptures. But in today's Gospel, Jesus clarifies that we need not become scholars in order to know God: it is more important to become like children. So when Jesus walked on this earth, He drew in those on the margins of society: the poor, the sick, and the sinners. Because they were humble, they were able to listen to Jesus, whereas the educated only saw how different Jesus' message was from their complicated understanding of the Law and thus rejected Him. The yoke that Jesus gives us is light and easy because it gives us solace to face life's difficulties and allows us to experience the love of the Father. Jesus has always known the Father and by grace, we may be adopted as His sons and daughters and thus know the Father. Jesus wants us to learn His mercy and goodness and for this reason, He uses the analogy of the yoke. We cannot be lazy, just as farmers must still exert themselves while using a good yoke, but at least we need not waste ourselves to exhaustion.

「Spiritual Talk」Thirteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time – Fr. Anthony Ho

This weekend, the Church celebrates the Thirteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time. In the Gospel, Jesus teaches His disciples to prioritize different kinds of love by placing God in the first place, above family members and their own lives. Love and sacrifice are inseparable and Jesus' disciples tasted what true love means from the Cross. They saw how the world treated Jesus with suffering and insults and they themselves were treated in the same way, having to bear their own crosses. The Cross reminds us to patiently bear with the inconveniences of daily life and to not be afraid of sacrifice or suffering. In order to find true happiness, we must first find true life, and this comes from accepting Jesus. People often look down on missionaries, but this betrays a rebellious heart towards God, a heart that is far from sincerely accepting God's instruction. Being a disciple is not easy, but it is certainly possible, because God has given His grace to help us.

「Spiritual Talk」Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time – Fr. Anthony Ho

This weekend, the Gospel reading is from Matthew 10, where Jesus is teaching His disciples to bravely spread the Gospel. When we suffer persecution because of spreading the Gospel, there is a temptation to stop or water down the message. But Jesus gave the duty to evangelize to His disciples, and we cannot hear the message of God unless it is through their work. Jesus taught openly and was nailed to the Cross as a result. When we spread the Gospel like He did, we will also be martyred. The world can only harm our mortal bodies and not our souls. We ought to be afraid, therefore, only of the God who can send our souls into Hell. God will acknowledge those who acknowledged Him before other humans, but those who denied God in order to save their earthly lives will also be denied by God at the Judgment. St. Matthew's writings are not meant only for Jesus' disciples, but for all believers, so that we might learn to not compromise to the world and reject Christ. Jesus' evangelizing had two approaches: firstly, to openly proclaim the Gospel; and secondly, to move on in the face of rejection. The Church also first spreads the light of the Gospel throughout the world in order to see who will accept the Gospel and who will reject it; then, having seen their reactions, she decides on further action.
