45 years of Fr Ho Lung and Friends!

Jamaica Gleaner - - MOSES - Fr Richard Ho Lung Founder, Mis­sion­ar­ies of the Poor (MOP)

THE NEW Moses! pro­duc­tion will star­tle you. It is ab­so­lutely ma­jes­tic, with an epic de­sign for cas­tles, moun­tain ranges, river floods, and Egyp­tian pyra­mids.

The pro­duc­tion team went all out. There is a prob­ing new script which searches out the char­ac­ters of Moses, Miriam, and even God as He pro­duces a new peo­ple.

There are new songs. Shame on Me, I be­lieve, is a knock­out, with in­ven­tive chore­og­ra­phy. It de­picts the vul­gar and the sa­cred. The dance hall feel of Shame on Me is pop­u­lar among the young. Pesti­lences is also brand new, fea­tur­ing 12 dancers, de­pict­ing in spe­cial lights and choral drama the in­sects sent by God to pun­ish the Egyp­tians. Moses strikes the rock three times, and wa­ter flows.

Then there is the haunt­ing new song, The Jour­ney, when Moses trav­els across the desert to fol­low the Lord’s voice.


It is now 45 years of pro­duc­tion of Fr Richard Ho Lung and Friends. What a beau­ti­ful gift given by the Lord! It has been a pow­er­ful source of evan­ge­li­sa­tion in Brazil, Ger­many, Eng­land, The Philip­pines, Canada, the Caribbean is­lands, and many dif­fer­ent parts of the United States.

Also, it has greatly helped to pro­vide re­sources for MOP broth­ers and sis­ters who serve the des­ti­tute and the home­less in Kenya, Uganda, The Philip­pines, In­dia, In­done­sia, Haiti, Ja­maica, and North Carolina. The broth­ers are in­ter­na­tion­ally known for their free ser­vice to the poor­est of the poor.
