Notice Board - My mom is God’s precious gift to me

A mother for me is a shoulder to cry and lean on. A one call away psychologist who will understand and give you advice helpful in life. The foundation of our whole being. Without them we won’t be what we are today. She is a tireless woman who will do everything and anything to give us what we want and what we need. She is that one person who is happy to see her children happy, a person who treats her children as her life.

Notice Board - Challenge of a single mom

It is not a big deal if you are a single parent as long as you can provide for the needs of your child. For me, I will raise my child the best that I can. There’s a saying that “what you sow is what you reap.” Be a friend and family aside from being a parent through guiding and disciplining. Let them feel the importance of tender loving care and attention as well.

Confirmed by Peter’s embrace

Pablo Virgilio David
 
I was surprised when the prefect of the Papal Household, Archbishop Georg Gänswein, instructed me to sit right next to the Holy Father, on his left. He was just an arm’s length away. The rest of us were seated in a circle around him. I did not see the logic of the sitting arrangement. No hierarchy.

A miraculous encounter with Our Lady of Guadalupe

One evening when I was assisting a little girl in writing her first book, Happy Audrey, I found myself in a dilemma. Since Audrey was only five-and-a-half years old, her little hands might not be able to copy the Hail Mary Prayer into the middle of the partially-designed page. There and then, just as I was asking God for guidance, she started to draw a chapel on the empty space, which was totally unexpected.

Lifetime companion

When a couple decides to step into the church and get married, they should have decided that this lover is their Mr. Right or Miss Right. They need to be very certain that this lover is their Lifetime Companion, meaning that she or he will no longer consider anyone else from then on. This couple must be willing to walk together till the end of their life’s journey.

Building bridges and making connections with the vulnerable

Mary Yuen
 
In late July, I participated in the International Conference on Catholic Theological Ethics in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. More than 400 participants from about 80 countries around the world gathered together to reflect on the current ethical challenges facing the world, with focus on political crisis and lack of governance, as well as ecological and environmental issues, and responding from the perspective of Catholic moral theology.

You are called, you are gifted

Jesus is calling YOU.
 
“I know well the plans I have for you, says the Lord.” – Jeremiah 29:11
 
That’s great that God knows those plans, but what about me? How am I supposed to know God’s plan for my life?

Christ is risen! Now what are you going to do about it?

Tricia Bølle
 
“Christ is Risen!” 
“He is truly risen!”
 
So goes the (hopefully enthusiastic) call and response of the Christian faithful as we celebrate this truly joyous occasion when our salvation was won and new life given to us through the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Not a year to spend on the sofa

It is a new year. But it is not just another new year. It is also a Year of Youth in our diocese of Hong Kong as well as in other parts of the world like Australia. 
 
In fact, the Year of Youth began with the proclamation made by the bishop on the first Sunday of Advent, which traditionally marks the beginning of the new liturgical year in the Catholic Church.
