Life Site News…My mom

It seems that most of the time I browse lifesite, I’d get angry. There are just too many news that make me depressed. Just read from today’s news
that a Red Cross employee gets fired because of an email sent to the
organization’s management… about how he doesn’t feel comfortable with
celebrating GLBT pride month… I’d think his suggestion of having a
month to celebrate Christianity would truly makes the organization
"diversified". Double standard… against Christians… once again…

Another story on today’s news makes me feel better though. About the encounter that Susan Torres’ husband and parents had

We truly need stories like these to remind us to not give up… fight the good fight! Till the end…

I don’t read bible often… I’m making some effort to remind myself every night before I sleep, I’ll go to to read gospel for the day… Last night, I came across Matthew 16:13-23:

立伯多祿為教會的磐石 

耶穌來到了裴理伯的凱撒勒雅境內,就問門徒說:「人們說人子是誰?」
他們說:「有人說是洗者若翰;有人說是厄里亞;也有人說是耶肋米亞,或先知中的一位。」
耶穌對他們說:你們說我是誰?」
西滿伯多祿回答說:「你是默西亞,永生天主之主。」
耶穌回答他說:「約納的兒子西滿,你是有福的,因為不是肉和血啟示了你,而是我在天之父。
我再給你說:你是伯多祿(磐石),在這磐石上,我要建立我的教會,陰間的門決不能戰勝她。
我要將天國的鑰匙交給你:凡你在地上所束縛的,在天上也要被束縛;凡你在地上所釋放的,在天上也要被釋放。」
他遂即嚴禁門徒,不要對任人說他是默西亞。
首次預言受難和復活 

從那時起,耶穌就開始向門徒說明:他必須上耶路撒冷去,要由長老、司祭長和經師們受到許多痛苦,並將被殺,但三天要復活。
伯多祿便拉耶穌到一邊,諫責他說:「主,千萬不可! 這事絕不會臨到你身上!」
耶穌轉身對伯多祿說:「撒殫,退到我後面去! 你是我的絆腳石,因為你所體會的不是天主的事,而是人的事。 」

The
bolded part really hit me… It’s assuring to be reminded that the
devil will never win. We just have to keep fighting… Lord, I need
strength!!


Tonight, my mom asked me to go to the mass for
the Sacred Heart. Reason being a blessing is offered for healing after
mass. I have never been to a healing mass. This is the first time when
I’ve been in this kind of occasion. There are many people in line… A
number of seniors, some with the canes, accompanied by family members,
go to the front to be blessed by Fr. Leung.

After being
blessed, my mom described to me how she felt. She said right after Fr.
Leung made the sign of the cross at her forehead, she felt a source of
heat travelling throughout her body. Then she started to feel kinda
shaky, she didn’t know if she was going to fall or not…. She didn’t
fall at last. She said the heat was there until Fr. Leung is done
saying prayers, and drew another sign of the cross on her forehead.

I have to say I’m surprised and proud of my mom. I wish her healthy and
never be bothered by health problems (real or imaginary) ever again…
