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.

Spiritual Talk – Fr Ho talks about Creeds (2)

“I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth.” Time is a measure of change, but God is perfect and unable to become better or worse. God is not within time, but time is within God. As for God’s omnipotence, we can see it in the depths of the ocean, the heights of the mountains – these are things that humans cannot make. In the orderliness of the universe, we can see God’s wisdom; and in the growth of creatures, we can see God’s goodness. Since God is wise and omnipotent, He has plans for His creatures and is able to carry them out – this is known as Providence. Irrational creatures are necessarily led by God, but rational creatures – i.e. angels and humans – may choose to either cooperate with or rebel against God. Even evil, the absence of good, is permitted by God in His wisdom so that all things might find their fulfillment in Him. All the saints have only done great deeds by trusting in God’s Providence.
