UN­DER REMEMBRANCES

Jamaica Gleaner - - MOSES -

have given many hours of their time pre­par­ing for Moses.

All of you, our bene­fac­tors, come out of a sit­u­a­tion and strug­gle for iden­tity. Be­cause it is a work of God, and be­cause the only re­ward is our heav­enly re­ward for ser­vice to the poor, suf­fer­ing, home­less and dy­ing, you have put aside all per­sonal con­cerns for profit.

May you be blessed. May you al­ways re­mem­ber the for­got­ten ones. VERY REV FA­THER RICHARD HO LUNG Mis­sion­ar­ies of the Poor Mem­bers of the cast of ‘Moses’ thrill the au­di­ence at its the re­cent launch. The vol­un­teers lend their tal­ents to the main fundrais­ing ef­fort that will fund the com­mu­nity out­reach of the Mis­sion­ar­ies of the Poor in Ja­maica. P.J. Ste­wart WE ALL live in times of mas­sive com­mu­ni­ca­tion and are bom­barded daily by words and body lan­guage, with sounds, signs, and ex­pres­sions. It can be a be­wil­der­ing noise and one in which the mes­sage is fre­quently not heard.

But a few years ago for me, into this clam­our seeped the most beau­ti­ful sound. It was as un­ex­pected as it was cap­ti­vat­ing. The ef­fect was sooth­ing and my heart stopped to lis­ten. It has been lis­ten­ing ever since. The mu­sic of Fa­ther Ho Lung and the po­etry of his songs have been an in­spi­ra­tion for many of my bet­ter paint­ings and my med­i­ta­tions over the last 40 years. So mov­ing and ten­der are his love duets, so beau­ti­ful are the cho­ruses that soar from 50 voices! I am truly grate­ful that Fa­ther Ho Lung’s mu­sic has been a pres­ence and a guide in my life.
