Associates Area 2017

 

Thank you for assisting in JOYFUL FEAST. TOUCH values more about your attitude than your abilities, and we surely need to set the right expectations among our people that this is not a show, not driven by human and surely not for our own glory. Therefore, we draw your attention to the below helpers guidelines. 

 

 

HELPERS RULES

The rule is intended to ensure all associates and assistants (anyone who help) are having the right attitude and expectation when they are assisting in the preparations. This is an important document that all should go through and agree to, so JOYFUL FEAST can be led in the same direction shared and agreed by all. It is better to suffer from manpower shortages than to have people with different expectations. 

 

Anyone who work and help MUST satisfy ALL of the following requirements, and are entirely willing to be bounded by the following rules: 

 

  1. You must love God more than you love yourself.

  2. You must love God more than you love TOUCH, JOYFUL FEAST or any other communities.

  3. You must love prayers more than you love any kind of activities, even those closest to your heart.

  4. You must believe at heart that it is the Lord who is doing the work, not any of your or others' talents or arrangements - even if it seems to be your credit in other people's eyes.

  5. You must be absolutely humble, deny yourself, your own will and your own ego, and pledge to become a loyal servant of God, to do nothing but His will. Only in this way can you be fully working under His leadership.

  6. You must be willing to surrender fully to the service of the real presence of Eucharistic Lord and be totally faithful to Our Lady's leadership.

  7. You must open yourself fully for the Holy Spirit to perform His work in you and through you.

  8. You must believe that spiritual preparations are as important, if not more, than physical preparations.

  9. You must place conversion of souls as your top priority, and believes that it is the Holy Spirit who changes hearts.

  10. You must believe that JOYFUL FEAST, and any element associated with it, is a grace, not anything anyone can take credit for.

  11. You must be ready to sacrifice for Jesus, even your own life, because of His love.

  12. You must be willing to bear the cross and suffer from any consequences joyfully and willingly, if it is the Lord's will that the event and yourself should fail.

  13. You must have attended at least one full JOYFUL FEAST before as a participant, and are regular attendees of any adoration activities, preferably Blazing Heart.

  14. You must be a Catholic, confirmed or soon to be confirmed. 

  15. You must be in a state of grace at the time of the event and throughout, and are willing to support our spiritual preparation programme.

 

 

Please make sure you agree from the bottom of your heart every single rule of these. If you have enquiries on any, feel free to ask and we can help you understand more about the background. However, after understanding all these, if you have hesitation to agree with any, please let us know and it is fair to you and perfectly okay for you to quit the helpers programme and join us as a participant.

 

Thank you for your generosity.

 

 

SPIRITUAL PREPARATION PROGRAMME

We do not need to further stress that you should have witnessed how our spiritual support plan has worked miraculously in the past. But may I stress its importance further this time, that owing to the nature of the Youth Festival - anticipating to be a camp of deep conversions among youth (things the devil hate most), we do foresee a strong force against us are on its way. So please, more than ever, that we asked for your commitment in joining the spiritual preparation work, and treat this very seriously.


Duration: 7-15 July 2017 - 9 days preparation
 

The concept is simple. We prepare 9 days in advance - in line with novena.  Why 9 days? Look at what Our Lady said in one of Her apparitions:

 

 "Dear Children! Today also I invite you to prayer, now as never before when my plan has begun to be realized. Satan is strong and wants to sweep away my plans of peace and joy and make you think that my Son is not strong in His decisions. Therefore, I call all of you, dear children, to pray and fast still more firmly. I invite you to self-renunciation for nine days so that, with your help, everything that I desire to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima, may be fulfilled. I call you, dear children, to now grasp the importance of my coming and the seriousness of the situation. I want to save all souls and present them to God. Therefore, let us pray that everything I have begun be fully realized. Thank you for having responded to my call."   -- Our Lady Queen of Peace, August 25, 1991

 

 

All prayers and fastings should be offered for the following intentions:

 

  • For the Lord's will to be done under Our Lady's leadership

  • For the conversion of souls, so that all may be bathed in the shower of heavenly graces and be remained in His love forever.

  • For the courage of all to say yes to Jesus and do whatever He tells us to.

 

NOTE: All intentions should be directed towards souls, not the success of the activity. For the activity can be a mess, no problem, but all souls must be saved.
 


The Actual Plan 


 

(1) Novena to the Holy Spirit
Please do the Holy Spirit Novena during the 9 days. Prayers can be found below, or click here.

 

 

 

 



(2) Fasting Chain
Basic principle is to fast on your day of fasting on bread and water. But if you cannot take this, have other unavoidable engagements, or if you are doing a consecrative days of fasting, you may consider relaxing a bit yourself (such as taking some vegetables etc) according to your physical conditions and needs (not according to your desires). Baseline is nothing less than preventing meat + 1 meal half full. For important tips on how to fast effectively with bread and water, you may refer to http://fastingtips.touchcommunity.org.

Regarding the timing, you have 3 options to choose from and you may pick according to your schedules.
1. Pick any 1 or more full days of your choice to fast. A full day please, not just one meal.
2. To offer a bit more to Our Lady, do a consecutive 3 day fasting of your choice.
3. The most powerful way is a 9 day consecutive fast throughout the entire period. Please exercise caution on your body conditions when you pick this option.

第一天 我靈魂的甘飴主人

吁,天主聖神!你是天主賜我靈魂的大禮。一想及你,我就感到興奮,對你產生無限敬佩和羨慕。我真不知如何才能夠表達我所感到的快慰。你是我極甘飴的主人,你是我的天主,你住在我心裏。我的靈魂在欣悅的默觀中,一想到你,就充滿了平安和愛情。在你紓尊降貴的態度前,我受寵若驚。你的美麗,你那超越我能以言語形容和想像感受的美麗;我想起你那無窮無盡的聖寵、恩賜、德能、成就和天福;我想起你那肯來住在我心內底親切善意。你擁有一切,你創造一切,你願意賜我一切。儘管我的貧乏使我成為世界上最微賤的人,我仍然在興奮的仰慕中,讚美你、欽崇你、感謝你。求你賜我一切。吁!天主聖神,請恩賜我一切。

第四天 為我對聖神之忽略而作補贖

吁,聖神!你是真理和極可愛的光芒。我心深處感到極度的悲傷。我承認,你幾乎不為我們大部份人所認識,甚至完全忘記。我們為很多憂慮而分心,忘形於世俗的風氣,忽略你的呵護和無微不至的照顧。我們很少想念你。我們的確忘恩負義!吁,聖神,請寬恕我們的過失,因為我們不想念你,沒有向其他靈魂談論你。吁,聖神!請俯納我的悔意,以這悔意來補贖我那應受責備的「健忘」過錯,並以此作為使我求豐盛光照的禱告,為神職人員,為一般信友。

第六天 求勇德

吁,勇德的聖神!你曾賜予殉道者勇氣,為主基督的緣故歡樂地捨生。請將這勇德盡行灌輸我心。求你除去找的呆鈍和懶惰。求你使我堅強,去承擔上主要我做的一切,為你的光榮、為一切兄弟的精神和物質的利益,不計較勞苦和犧牲。請賜我力量,繼續以熱誠,不辭勞苦地,而且恆心地,去盡自己的責任。求你賜我勇氣和活力,以大無畏的精神,去維護教會,在一切人面前完整地表明我的信仰。請賜我真心服從教宗和主教。請賜超凡的神火,從事宗徒工作。請恩賜我恆心到底,樂於殺身成仁。吁,聖神!請以你萬能神力籠罩我,以你的活力支持我,以你戰無不勝的神力庇祐我。
 

第七天 求賜真理

吁,真理和光明之神!你是神聖的火焰和熱力。神聖的真光啊,請驅除我靈魂內的錯誤和疑慮的陰影。請以無比的光芒灼熱及光照我靈魂深處。請恩賜我常常在你的光照下行走,逐退一切錯誤,忠心堅持於教會的真理。求你以神聖的真光庇蔭我,使我常常在你的真理和純然明亮中生活。

第九天 求賜全然的聖德

吁,聖神!求你賜我明光,照亮我靈,足以扶持我和求我幫助的人。請以愛德和勇毅的聖寵支援我軟弱的意志。吁,聖化人靈的天主!請領導我,使我鍥而不捨地、忍耐地順從你的指引,而達到聖德的高峰。你就是聖德,我應該讓你在我內生活,協助你完成在我內的工作。吁,神聖的更新者!求你更新一切,清除一切邪惡,一切危險,一切歹念;請在我內重建一切,使一切全新,全潔,全聖。吁,賦與生氣的天主聖神!我靈魂的靈魂!請賜我力量,去為天主聖子作證,在你陪伴下,常常光榮祂。願我為祂的榮耀而生活,為祂的愛情而終。吁,施恩者天主!請施予我你的恩典,使我在祂的奧蹟內默觀天主,明瞭生命和物質的真價值,並以肖似在天堂一般的純愛,懷抱一切。謝謝你!亞孟。
