MANILA – One of Philippine’s leading exorcists reminded Catholic priests to perform the blessing of sacramentals, or religious objects, properly to avoid “demonic infestation.”

Father Michell Joe Zerrudo, head exorcist of the Diocese of Cubao, said the blessing of religious objects must not be done in haste.

“Catholic priests should not take lightly the blessing of objects,” Father Zerrudo said during a talk on “spiritual warfare” in Quezon City on 11 Oct 2017.

“When blessing sacramentals, use the (church) ritual because sorcerers use their own ritual,” said the priest, adding a warning that anything can be a source of “evil infestation.”

He said even rosaries bought in church stores can become an “object of curse” if not properly blessed by a priest.

But the rosary can also be a “very powerful” weapon against the devil.

Father Zerrudo, however, said the “best instruments” in spiritual warfare are still prayers, penance, mortification, and sacraments.

“Pray with humble hearts,” he said, adding that “even the vocal prayers when they are said from the heart and by the heart are powerful instruments against the devil.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that “sacramentals are instituted for the sanctification of certain ministries of the church” but added that “these expressions of piety extend the liturgical life of the church, but do not replace it.” – ucanews.com

Promoting CCC remains a challenge and a priority

VATICAN CITY – As the church marks the 25th anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC), promoting it as a means of teaching the truth about faith remains a challenge and a priority.

Since its publication in 1992, the catechism has been translated into 50 languages, including Swahili, Japanese and Gaelic, and it is also available in Braille, video and digital editions.

Nevertheless, in today’s digital age, when people have limitless access to information with the click of a mouse or the swipe of an app, opinions and even “fake news” can either inform or misinform Catholics on the principles of the Catholic faith.

“Society is changing in a very massive way, and it’s much more difficult to reach people, especially in the digital age,” Katharina Karl, professor of pastoral theology and religious education at the Philosophical-Theological University in Muenster, Germany, told Catholic News Service on 11 Oct 2017.

This ongoing challenge was what prompted the Catholic Church a quarter of a century ago to create a go-to reference that synthesised church teaching and serve as a guide for the faithful.

The idea of a compendium of Catholic doctrine was one of the fruits of the 1985 Synod of Bishops marking the 20th anniversary of the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council.

After requests from participants for a point of reference “for the catechisms or compendiums that are prepared in various regions,” Pope John Paul II accepted their proposal, “considering it as fully responding to a real need, both of the universal church and of the particular churches.”

“The presentation of doctrine must be biblical and liturgical. It must be sound doctrine suited to the present life of Christians,”  John Paul II wrote in his Apostolic Constitution “Fidei Depositum” (“The Deposit of Faith”) on 11 Oct 1992.

Entrusting this task to 12 cardinals and bishops, John Paul II chose Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the future Pope Benedict XVI, to lead the commission responsible for the drafting of the catechism.

While the need for a text that clearly explained the church’s teachings was welcomed, some criticised it for being too static or dogmatic and not in line with the spirit of the Second Vatican Council.

“It was said that the catechism failed to take into account the theological developments of the last century, particularly exegetical developments; it was not ecumenical; it was not dialogical” as it made affirmations as established beyond dispute, Cardinal Ratzinger said on 9 Oct 2002, during an address commemorating the catechism’s 10th anniversary.

The future Pope Benedict responded to those opinions by seeking to explain “what a catechism is and what is its specific literary genre,” as well as its proper purpose and doctrinal relevance.

The catechism is “a proclamation of faith,” of witness, for the teaching of the faith, he said. It presents a “given that precedes us,” but whose doctrinal formulation develops in the church, he said.

After his papal election, Pope Benedict continued to urge Catholics to use the Catechism of the Catholic Church as a handbook to rediscover the truths of faith and a deeper knowledge of church teaching.

“Read the Catechism of the Catholic Church and rediscover the beauty of being Christian, of being church, of living as part of the great ‘we’ that Jesus formed around him to evangelise the world,” Pope Benedict said in 2012.

In his speech marking the 25th anniversary of the Catechism of the Catholic Church  Oct 11, Pope Francis said the catechism is not only an important tool for believers to understand the faith, but also provides concrete answers to new challenges.

Just as the challenges people face evolve, so does the Christian response since “the word of God cannot be preserved in mothballs as if it were an old blanket to protect against insects,” he said.

In fact, “the word of God is a dynamic reality that is always living, that progresses and grows, because it is stretched toward a fulfillment that men and women cannot stop,” Pope Francis said.

Austrian Cardinal Christoph Schonborn of Vienna, who served with then-Cardinal Ratzinger as co-editor of the catechism, told Vatican Radio Oct 12 that while the development of church teaching evolves over time, the church and the Gospel don’t change.

“We must change. This catechism is only 25 years old. The previous one — the Council of Trent — lasted 400 years. Therefore, I hope this catechism is at the beginning of its work for the church,” Cardinal Schonborn said.

Despite the catechism’s accessibility and continuing development, “there is still a lot to do,” Karl told Catholic News Service.

In her Oct 11 talk, Karl emphasised the need for Catholics to have a formed conscience — rooted in the teachings of the catechism — that will allow for a “dialogue with God.”

“The catechesis today needs to create a space for people to enter into dialogue with themselves in the first place. It’s something they need to be taught in such a way that in the end it may become a dialogue with God,” she said.

Expanding on her speech, Karl told CNS that before catechising, the church should embark on a “pre-journey with people” and reach out to them, given that, in today’s digital world, many people no longer socialise face-to-face or “go to catechism classes automatically.”

The use of Twitter by one group of Catholics from around the world who use the social network to pray together is one of many examples of how the church can use social media to engage people and “bring the catechism to them,” she noted.

“I think the sign of the times is to be creative,” Karl told CNS.

“The church is already going toward that path, but I think it’s a chance to enter the digital world not as something foreign to us but as something native to our times,” she said. – CNS

Pope announces 2019 Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon region

The Amazon River

VATICAN CITY –  Pope Francis has announced a special assembly of the Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon region that will focus on the needs of its indigenous people, on new paths for evangelisation and on the crisis of the rainforest.

The Pope’s announcement came on 15 Oct 2017  during the Angelus after a canonisation Mass during which he canonised 35 new saints, including three indigenous children martyred in 16th century Mexico.

“Accepting the desire of some Catholic Bishops’ Conferences in Latin America, as well as the voice of various pastors and faithful from other parts of the world, I have decided to convene a Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon region, which will take place in Rome in the month October 2019”  he said.

The main purpose of the Amazon synod, the Pope explained, will be to “identify new paths for the evangelisation of God’s people in that region.”

Special attention, he added, will be paid to the indigenous people who are “often forgotten and without the prospect of a serene future, also because of the crisis of the Amazonian rainforest, a ‘lung’ of primary importance for our planet.”

In 2014 the Catholic Church in Pan-Amazonia founded a Pan-Amazon Ecclesial Network – REPAM – as “God’s answer to this heartfelt and urgent need to care for the life of people so they are able to live in harmony with nature, starting from the widespread and varied presence of members and structures of the Church in Pan-Amazonia.”

REPAM is constituted not only by the regional Bishops’ Conferences but also by priests, missionaries of congregations who work in the Amazon jungle, national representatives of Caritas and laypeople belonging to various church bodies in the region.

As reported on the REPAM website: “The Amazon territory is the largest tropical forest in the world. It covers six million square kilometres and includes the territories of Guyana, Suriname and French Guyana, Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, Peru and Brazil. It is home to 2,779,478 indigenous people, comprising 390 indigenous tribes and 137 isolated (uncontacted) peoples with their valuable ancestral cultures, and 240 spoken languages belonging to 49 linguistic families.”

It is “a territory that is devastated and threatened by the concessions made by States to transnational corporations. Large-scale mining projects, monoculture and climate change place its lands and natural environment at great risk,” leading to the destruction of cultures, undermining the self-determination of peoples and above all affronting Christ incarnate in the people who live there (indigenous and riparian peoples, peasant farmers, Afro-descendants and urban populations). – vatican radio

Strong winds bend SHC flag poles

The bent poles in front of the Sacred Heart Cathedral, 14 Oct 2017.

KOTA KINABALU – Unusually strong winds bent the three flag poles and flipped the outside billboard canvas to the other side at the Sacred Heart Cathedral on 14 Oct 2017.

This took place before the Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help at the cathedral after 5 pm.

Aside from that, the winds also broke several tree branches inside the compound of the St Peter’s College Initiation Year Formation House at Jalan Sang Kancil Tiga here.

Local weather reports say that the average hourly wind speed in Kota Kinabalu is essentially constant during October, remaining within 0.1 miles per hour of 3.1 miles per hour throughout.  But yesterday’s event certainly proved otherwise.

Carmelite Family celebrates Foundress Day

Fr Hon cuts the cake marking his 9th priestly anniversary after the Mass outside the Carmelite Chapel Kota Kinabalu, 15 Oct 2017.

KOTA KINABALU – The Carmelite Family – nuns, seculars and friar – celebrated the feast of St Teresa of Avila at the Carmelite Chapel here on 15 Oct 2017.

Friar Gregory Hon presided at the Mass.  It was also his 9th priestly anniversary.  He also facilitated the triduum for the feastday Oct 10-12.

After the Mass, he cut his anniversary cake at the breakfast prepared by the lay members.  Currently the lay order has three aspirants, four novices (one first year, three second year), one temporary professed and 15 definitive professed.

Born on 30 Sept 1963 in Kuala Lumpur, Hon entered the Order of Discalced Carmelites (OCD) in Singapore in 2002.  He made his first profession in 2003 and took his solemn vows on 14 Dec 2007 in Rome.  He was ordained priest on 15 Oct 2008.

In his homily, Hon gave a summary of the saint’s life and works as well as on prayer.  Limited copies of Conversation with Christ (on personal prayer by St Teresa) were immediately sold out after Mass.

Born on 28 March 1515 in Avila Spain, Teresa Sanchez de Cepeda y Ahumada lived in an age of exploration as well as political, social, and religious upheaval.  She was born before the Protestant Reformation and died in 1582, almost 20 years after the closing of the Council of Trent.

The gift of God to Teresa in and through which she became holy and left her mark on the Church and the world is threefold: She was a woman; she was a contemplative; she was an active reformer.

As a woman, Teresa stood on her own two feet, even in the man’s world of her time. She was “her own woman,” entering the Carmelites despite strong opposition from her father. She was a person wrapped not so much in silence as in mystery. Beautiful, talented, outgoing, adaptable, affectionate, courageous, enthusiastic, she was totally human. Like Jesus, she was a mystery of paradoxes: wise, yet practical; intelligent, yet much in tune with her experience; a mystic, yet an energetic reformer; a holy woman, a womanly woman.

Teresa was a woman “for God,” a woman of prayer, discipline, and compassion. Her heart belonged to God. Her ongoing conversion was an arduous lifelong struggle, involving ongoing purification and suffering. She was misunderstood, misjudged, and opposed in her efforts at reform. Yet she struggled on, courageous and faithful; she struggled with her own mediocrity, her illness, her opposition. And in the midst of all this she clung to God in life and in prayer. Her writings on prayer and contemplation are drawn from her experience: powerful, practical, and graceful. She was a woman of prayer; a woman for God.

Teresa was a woman “for others.” Though a contemplative, she spent much of her time and energy seeking to reform herself and the Carmelites, to lead them back to the full observance of the primitive Rule. She founded over a half-dozen new monasteries. She travelled, wrote, fought—always to renew, to reform. In her self, in her prayer, in her life, in her efforts to reform, in all the people she touched, she was a woman for others, a woman who inspired and gave life.

Her writings, especially the Way of Perfection, The Interior Castle, and Conversation with Christ have helped generations of believers.

In 1970, the Church gave her the title she had long held in the popular mind: Doctor of the Church. She and St Catherine of Siena were the first women so honoured.

Pope urges Christians to be vigilant against worldliness

VATICAN CITY –  In his homily on 13 Oct 2017 at the Santa Marta residence here, Pope Francis urged Christians to be vigilant against worldliness.

He was reflecting on the episode in Luke’s Gospel where Jesus casts out a demon, which some people interpret as through the power of the devil.

The Pope said the Lord asks us to be watchful in order not to enter into temptation.  This is why a Christians have to be awake, watchful and careful like a sentinel.  Jesus was not narrating a parable but was stating a truth, i.e when the unclean spirit comes out of a man, he roams about in abandoned places looking for refuge and not finding any, decides to return to where he came from, where the freed man lives.  Hence the demon decides to bring in “seven other spirits worse than him.”  Pope Francis emphasised the word “worse,” saying it has much force in the passage because the demons enter quietly.

The demons thus start being part of the man’s life. With their ideas and inspirations, they help the man to live better and entering his life and heart and start changing him from within, but quietly without making any noise.  This method is different from the earlier diabolic possession which was strong, the Pope explained, adding this time it is a diabolic possession, something like in a “living room.”  The devil slowly changes our criteria to lead us to worldliness. It camouflages our way of acting, which we hardly notice. And so, the man, freed from the demon, becomes a bad man, a man burdened by worldliness. And that’s exactly what the devil wants – worldliness, the Pope stressed.

Worldliness, Pope Francis explained, is a spell, a seduction, because the devil is the “father of seduction.”  When the devil enters “so sweetly, politely and takes possession of our attitudes,” the Pope said, our values pass from the service of God to worldliness. Thus we become “lukewarm Christians, worldly Christians,”  a mixture, something that the Pope described as a “fruit salad” of the spirit of the world and the spirit of God.  All this distances us from the Lord, the Pope said and stressed that the way to avoid it by being vigilant and calm without alarm.

Watchful means understanding what goes on in my heart, the Pope said, adding, “ It means stopping for a while to examine my life, whether I am a Christian, whether I educate my children, whether my life is Christian or worldly?” And one understands this, as Paul points out, by looking at Christ crucified.  One understands where worldliness lies and is destroyed before the Lord’s cross.  The Crucifix saves us from the charms and seductions that lead us to worldliness.

The Holy Father exhorted Christians to examine themselves whether they look up to Christ crucified, whether they pray the Way of the Cross in order to understand the price of salvation, not just from sins but also from worldliness.  The examination of conscience, the Pope said, is done always before Christ crucified, with prayer, after which one has to break loose from one’s comfortable attitudes, through works of charity, visiting the sick, helping someone in need and so on.  This breaks the harmony and the spiritual worldliness that the demon together with seven others tries to create in us, the Pope added. – vatican radio

Rosary and Mass mark the Pilgrim Virgin’s visit to Taman Sinar

A pose for remembrance after the Mass, Taman Sinar Luyang, 12 Oct 2017.

KOTA KINABALU – Rosary recitation and Mass marked the Pilgrim Virgin’s visit to Taman Sinar Luyang here on 12 Oct 2017.

In May and October, the Parish Family Pastoral Network (PFPN) of Sacred Heart Cathedral Kota Kinabalu organises daily block rosary and weekly Friday Mass in the different tamans or housing estates within the boundaries of Sacred Heart Cathedral Parish.

Another activity is the two-week Advent Family Visits in early December.

Being the centenary of the Fatima apparitions (1917-2017), the Pilgrim Virgin statue visits different families each night (except the weekends) in the different housing estates in October.

At each visit, the parishioners staying around that area gather in one house, praying the rosary for peace and conversion of sinners.  Sometimes, it culminates with a Mass by one of the pastors of the parish.

Father Joshua Liew presided at the Mass following the recitation of the rosary at the home of Agatha Yap in Taman Sinar.

Several parishioners staying within the vicinity as well as friends participated in the event and joined in the fellowship after Mass.

Indah Jaya BEC goes on pilgrimage to Manila

Members of the two BECs pose for remembrance after the signing of the MoU, Quezon City, Sept 2017.

SANDAKAN –  Thirty members of the St Teresa of Calcutta Taman Indah Jaya  Basic Ecclesial Community (BEC)  here went on a five-day pilgrimage to Manila Philippines on 20 – 24 Sept 2017 with Father Thomas Makajil as spiritual director.

The pilgrims prepared themselves spiritually through a nine-day novena prayer.

The BEC was formed in 2010 with some 30 active families. Since its inception, the members have made two pilgrimages: one to St Anne Bukit Mertajam and another to the Diocese of Keningau.

This time around, the BEC responded to the call of Bishop Julius Gitom to establish links with other BECs in the diocese or beyond in order to learn from one another. With that in mind, the BEC decided to make a pilgrimage to the Philippines and twin up with one of the local BECs in Quezon City. The committee got down to preparatory work in 2016.

Aleona Natalio, a formator at the Institute of Formation Fondacio, (IFFAsia) was on hand to greet and welcome the pilgrims at Ninoy Aquino International Airport on Sept 20.  IFFAsia trains Asian Christian youth leaders who are willing to commit and participate in the revival of the Church and the civil society.

Upon arrival at the Institute, housed at Radio Veritas Asia in Fairview, Quezon City, the pilgrims feasted on a variety of traditional cuisines prepared by the students, including lechon the popular local roasted pig. We were briefed on the organisation structure of the Institute and were introduced to their formators as well as the students coming from the Philippines, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and China.

They were briefed on the organisational structure of the institute and were introduced to their formators as well as the students coming from the Philippines, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and China.

IFFAsia is well connected to the Diocese of Sandakan as four youths from Sandakan have graduated from the institute. In 2011, the Sandakan cathedral parish hosted their mission project comprising 23 participants: students and formators. A part of their exposure was an encounter with St Teresa of Calcutta BEC.

Apart from the warm welcome and good food, the pilgrims were also entertained with presentations from the students. The event was interactive providing a platform to get to know one another.  In support of their upcoming mission project in Thailand, the pilgrims bought souvenir items prepared by the students.

The pilgrims were housed at the Franciscan Sisters of St Elizabeth Retreat House across the road, opposite IFFAsia. Surprisingly, there were several Indonesian sisters in the congregation so they had no problem communicating in Bahasa Indonesia. The retreat house offered comfortable twin sharing air- conditioned rooms with toilet attached, serene setting and a beautiful chapel where Fr Thomas celebrated daily Mass at  6:00 am.

The pilgrims divided into three groups of 10 people.  They visited seven cathedrals and churches with significant historical and architectural values: St Agustin, Manila Cathedral, San Sebastian, Baclaran Church, Quiapo Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene, Espirito Santo, and Good Shepherd Cathedral Shrine Fairview.

Fr Thomas was a good guide as he had done his master’s in pastoral theology at Santo Tomas University Manila.

One profound experience was the visit to Baclaran Church – the National Shrine of Our Mother Perpetual Help run by the Redemptorist Fathers. They were welcomed by a priest in charge of pilgrims. They were honoured to take the Cross in procession to the altar where the pilgrimage prayer was said at the sanctuary.

Another memorable visit was to the Daughters of St Paul Media Centre and their convent in Pasay City. Sister Rosalie Lojiu, the niece of Fr Thomas, briefed the pilgrims on the Pauline apostolate and provided light refreshments for them.

During the visit, Fr Thomas took time to visit the three surviving pioneers who started the congregation in Sabah in the 1960s. All of them are now in their mid-90s and have to depend on walking aids. These sisters used to visit Fr Thomas’ family when they were in Penampang, he was in primary school then.

It was rather nostalgic and emotional for them as they shared their fond memories of North Borneo/Sabah.  They surprised the pilgrims when some of them could still remember the popular Malay lullaby, Burung Kakak Tua.

The highlight of the pilgrimage was to enter into an understanding between BEC of St Teresa of Calcutta Indah Jaya Sandakan and the BEC of Cathedral Shrine and Parish of the Good Shepherd (CSPGS), Fairview Park, Quezon City, Philippines, with the following objectives:

  1. Share resources on the development, sustenance and advancement of BECs
  2. Share information regarding events happening in the BECs
  3. Share on similarities and differences
  4. Foster good relationship bond among members, especially the youth of the twinned BECs

On hand to welcome the BEC members were the parish priest Father Mario Sanchez and his two assistants, Father Bong and Father Sanders, together with the members of BEC-CSPGS.

In his welcoming address, Fr Sanchez encouraged the twinned BECs to propagate and promote BEC. He said that through sharing, it will prompt learning from each other and will bring growth in their relationship with the Lord. He said that BEC is one of the ways to reach out to more people and through BEC they will get closer to God and to others in the community.

The visit was important as it coincided with the Filipino year-long celebration of  2017 as the Year of the Parish as a “Communion of Communities, Participation and Mission” with emphasis on BECs.

In response, Fr Thomas expressed his gratitude for the warm welcome rendered and he said that the similarities of the guests and host made them feel at home. He said that the BECs in the Sandakan Diocese is in its infancy stage as the diocese is merely 10 years old and has much to learn from them.

Clarita Salvan, the team animator, briefed the visitors on their history while Francis Tan provided an insight into the BEC of St Teresa of Calcutta,  followed by a group discussion on the way forward for BECs.

After Sunset Mass at the cathedral, the memorandum of understanding (MoU) was sealed between the two BECs by the respective chairpersons at the parish hall, witnessed by the priests.

Limbahau PPC chairman requests for residential pastor

LIMBAHAU – Limbahau Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) chairman requested for a residential pastor during the annual pastoral visit by the archbishop on 8 Oct 2017 to Holy Rosary Parish here.

In his speech after the Mass wherein 95 boys and girls were confirmed by Archbishop John Wong, Sylvester Joseph conveyed the longing of the parishioners for a residential pastor.  He also urged the parishioners to pray for this request to be granted.

He said that the proceeds from the day’s bazaar would be for the Catholic Centre building project fund as the parish has pledged to contribute RM220,000.00 towards it.  Other fundraisers have been initiated as well.

Joseph then touched on the parish’s two-year family programme which he hoped would be fruitful.

Earlier at 8 am, Abp Wong had a breakfast meeting with the two pastors, Father Thomas Yip and Father Rayner Bisius, and PPC members who presented reports under their various portfolios, present and future programmes such as KKG-ku (Keluarga [family], KKD [BEC], Gereja [church]), Belia Masuk Kampung (youth enter village), and altar servers camp, in response to the Archdiocesan Pastoral Thrust.

In his turn, Abp Wong encouraged the parishioners to deepen their faith, the confirmands to be active church members, and married couples to have more children despite various challenges.

He pointed out that small families mean reduction in the overall Catholic population and challenged the parishioners to have trust in God to provide for their needs.

After the speeches, the prelate launched the new parish logo.

After Mass, all went in procession to the Fr A Amandus Hall, accompanied by traditional toggungak music, for lunch, cake-cutting commemorating Abp Wong’s 7th episcopal anniversary, choral presentations, prize presentations for sports and recreational activities, and lucky draws.

The prelate, accompanied by parish leaders, toured all the stalls selling food, drinks, local produce, meeting the people where they were.

Later, the PPC presented Abp Wong with a mock cheque of RM40,000 as proceeds from the bazaar.

Representing the state government, Datuk Johnny Mositun presented several units of PA systems to Limbahau and  Papar parishes, and to some outstation chapels.

The evening before, Oct 7, Abp Wong celebrated Sunset Mass at St Sabina Titimbongon Papar, the first time the chapel was visited by a bishop. – William Charles Mindus
