Spiritual Talk – Fr. Ho talks about purgatory

Purgatory is the destination of saved souls who did not have any unforgiven serious sins at the time of death but did not enter Heaven immediately. Before entering Heaven, they must undergo purifying suffering in reparation for their unforgiven small sins and forgiven serious sins. Some saints experienced Purgatory through private revelations and reported that it was as painful as Hell because they could not see God. But unlike the hateful and cursing souls in Hell, the souls in Purgatory were joyful and peaceful, because they knew their suffering would purify them to be with God forever. The amount of charity that we have at the time of death determines our eternal destination. Hence, the souls in Purgatory cannot increase their charity as the living still can. We can help the souls in Purgatory to reach Heaven by praying for them and offering up our works and sufferings so God can reduce their suffering. We can pray for their souls and they can pray for us in return.

Fr. Ho talks about souls of humans

The souls of humans were created for God, hence our greatest joy on Heaven and Earth is to be with God. But to be in Heaven is also joyful because we can be with the angels, saints, and our loved ones. If our earthly friendship is a holy one, it will continue forever in Heaven. There is no perfect happiness on Earth – we are either disappointed because we cannot obtain what we desire or are disappointed once we obtain what we desire. In Heaven, we will have eternal desire but also eternal fulfillment. In Purgatory or Hell, the greatest pain is to temporarily or permanently lose God, who is our perfect happiness. Jesus graphically describes Hell as a place of worms, fire, and gnashing of teeth. On earth, we must choose our eternal destination.

Fr. Ho talks about death and resurrection

Death is the separation of body and soul. Once a soul leaves the body, it is subject to particular Judgment. If it carries God’s grace at the time of death, it goes to Heaven; if it carries serious unrepented sin, it goes to Hell. There was a dentist in Colombia called Gloria Pola who got struck by lightning. She went into a coma and experienced her particular Judgment saw that she was going to Hell, but God gave her a second chance, because there was a poor farmer who prayed for her recovery. God told her to witness to the reality of Judgment and today, there are many videos online detailing her experience of Judgment. Resurrection, then, is the reunion of body and soul. If God can create our bodies from nothing, He can also raise them up on the last day. But the bodies of the good and wicked are different. Those of the good resemble the glorified body of Christ and possess: brightness, subtility, agility, and impassibility. That is, their bodies shine visibly, are not restricted by spatial constraints like walls, are not restricted by temporal constraints from travelling instantly, and are not restricted by sickness and death. The bodies of the wicked, on the other hand, are ugly and painful. After particular Judgment follows general Judgment, when individual verdicts will be universally proclaimed – all our thoughts, words, and actions will be revealed to the world. We ought to be careful about these things in this life because we’ll have to account for them to God. Oftentimes, people who want to escape their own actions will also deny the existence of God. If we are upset that injustice exists in our world, we will see it rectified at the general Judgment. If we have a clean conscience, then we have no reason to fear judgment. As Christians, we ought to anticipate the judgment with hope.

Spiritual Talk – Fr. Ho talks about Saints

There are three kinds of saints recognized by the Church: Biblical saints, traditional saints, and ecclesiastical saints. Biblical saints lived in the time of the Bible, such as Mary and Joseph. Traditional saints were martyrs, monastics, Church Fathers, and missionaries who lived in the first millennium, before a canonization process existed, so their sanctity was recognized through the liturgy. After the first millennium, a canonization process was established to investigate the sanctity of candidates for recognition as saints. If the investigation begins, the candidate is known as a Servant of God. Once evidence of martyrdom or heroic sanctity is found, the candidate becomes a Venerable. If the candidate advances to become a Blessed, the local church or community will venerate them through the liturgy like a saint. If the candidate is a martyr, then they automatically become a Blessed; but if not, then evidence must be found that they are already in Heaven. That is, evidence of an intercessory miracle that defies natural explanation must be found. If their importance extends beyond the local church or community to the universal Church, as shown by their intercessory miracles, then the Pope can proclaim the candidate as a Saint. At this point, the universal Church will venerate them through the naming of Churches and mentioning them in the liturgy. The Church has dedicated different days to commemorate different saints who gave witness to God at different times and places, showing us that everyone can walk on the path to holiness through the grace of God.

Fr. Ho talks about the Apostles’ Creed

The Catholic Church has two main creeds: the longer Nicene Creed and the shorter Apostles' Creed. The Apostles' Creed mentions "the communion of saints", which refers to how the Church is the mystical Body of Christ, whose life is the Spirit, flowing like blood and enabling the baptized to help each other. The members of this Body also include the saints in heaven too, who care for and pray for us. We can also pray for the souls in Purgatory and help them enter Heaven earlier. Our communion with other humans reflects the communion enjoyed by the Three Persons of the Trinity. Traditionally, the Church comprises of three parts: the souls in Heaven, known as the Church Triumphant; the souls in Purgatory, known as the Church Suffering; and the souls on Earth, known as the Church Militant. Furthermore, there are three categories of saints: Biblical, Traditional, and Ecclesiastical saints.

Fr. Ho talks about the third mark of the Church – Catholicity

The third mark of the Church is its catholicity, a term that means "universal". Since the Catholic Church must endure until the end of the ages and proclaim the Gospel to all nations, the Church welcomes everyone, whether poor or rich, educated or uneducated, people from different ethnicities. As a result, the Catholic Church translates catechism texts in different languages and sends missionaries around the world. In the past, agricultural societies were largely illiterate, so old European churches are filled with stained glass instead. The fourth mark is its apostolicity; the priests and bishops of the Church are consecrated by preceding bishops. And if we read the Church fathers, people are often surprised to find that the early Church worshipped much in the same way as the Catholic Church today.

【Spiritual Talk】 Fr. Ho talks about the four marks of the Catholic Church

The Church is “one, holy, catholic, and apostolic” – these are her four marks. She is one because she is led by the same Pope, believes in the same doctrine, and celebrates the same Sacraments. She is holy because her founder is Christ and her Pope is Christ’s Vicar on earth, teaches doctrine to sanctify people, and provides the means for people to become saints. The Church is, in a sense, a hospital: we are patients who can get better if we obediently listen to the doctors’ advice. But no one can force us – we have the freedom to disobey and hamper our recovery. In the Church, we see many faithful who have refused to live like Christ but also many who have, the saints. These lives of faithful witness show in a visible way the holiness of the Church.
