Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ! 

According to this weekend's gospel reading, Jesus sent out the Twelve to minister on their own shortly after they began following him. Despite knowing their inexperience and foolishness, Jesus respected their freedom, a sacred gift from God to every individual. He recognized the challenges and temptations they would face along their journey, yet he entrusted them with this mission to grow stronger difficulties and more mature af-ter failures. Far from neglect, Jesus prepared them as best he could, offering guidance and sharing his authori-ty with them. His actions reflected not indifference, but a deep understanding and profound respect for their development and journey. 

This reminds me some sad stories abour several young adults who, despite being fully grown, continue to rely on and live under their parents' care. Unfortunately, parents often contribute to this issue in several ways. Firstly, some parents view their children as perpetually small, weak, naive, and inexperienced. Consequently, they make decisions and plans for their children's future, happiness, and life, regardless of their age. In turn, their children, regardless of their maturity, lack the courage, ability, or desire to break free from parental con-trol. Secondly, out of deep love and lifelong devotion to their children, some parents excessively pamper and cater to their every need, often beyond their means. Their excessive support leaves their children unsure of how to care for themselves, manage their own families, or plan for their own futures. Lastly, driven by a de-sire to shield their children from sadness, stumbling, or failure, some parents intervene unnecessarily, rescuing their children even when it's unwarranted or counterproductive. Consequently, these young adults may never learn to develop resilience, self-reliance, or problem-solving skills through adversity. As a result, some young people have not experienced the challenges and hardships that foster personal growth and maturity. They fre-quently turn to their parents for assistance, their willpower is often weak, their resolve easily shaken, and they struggle to maintain stability when faced with life's difficulties. 

My brothers and sisters in Christ, 

Sometimes we encounter situations where beloved family members, relatives, or friends are preparing to de-part from us. Surely it is natural for us to feel sadness, anxiety, or frustration because we wish they could re-main with us indefinitely. Nevertheless, we must remind ourselves to respect their freedom to make their own choices and walk on their own journey. We must remind ourselves to embrace the natural changes that occur in human life. Alongside this acceptance, we should also entrust the rest to God, echoing the prayer, "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”. 

Sincerely yours in Jesus Christ and Our Lady of La Vang! 

Reverend Kiet Anh Ta.
