Delivered by Worley Pamilaran from Saint John Bosco Church, Archdiocese of Jakarta, Indonesia. Daniel 7: 9-10.13-14; Rs psalm 138: 1-2a.2bc-3.4-5; John 1: 47-51 ANGELS ARE SERVANTS The theme for our meditation today is: Angels Are Servants. Angels are the inhabitants of heaven who are living with the Triune God, who have never experienced a life like all human beings in the world. They are spiritual beings who have been with God since the existence of the kingdom of Heaven. God reveals His will and power when He is dealing with His creation. In the life of this kingdom, the role of angels is to serve the almighty God in His divine works. In our celebration of liturgy, the Eucharist and devotional prayers, we mention angels in connection with their common duty which is to sing and to give praise to the Almighty God. They are like a security troop that guards and serves all activities in the Kingdom of heaven. There are two special duties of this troop. The first is to protect all human beings from any harm and from losing the way in their journey of faith. They are called the guardian angels for us the believers. The guardian angels do not have names and they are not our patron saints who actually have names. The second special task is to carry out and to fulfill some great tasks from the almighty God. They are called the archangels who have names, namely Saint Michael, Saint Gabriel, and Saint Rafael. With the term "great" attached to them, it means that their role as heavenly servants are very important. The scriptures as the official sources for divine revelation, give us an evidence of faith in these three archangels, whose names and roles are clearly elaborted. They are different from other angels who have no names and specific works for each of them. The archangel Michael is mentioned in the scriptures and also explained in the sacred tradition of the Church as a soldier who defends the people of God and fights against the great enemy of the Church. For example, in the book of Daniel (12,1), Michael is depicted as the one who fights the enemy and defends the People of God from the attacks of the Anti-Christs. Michael is always depicted as the one standing great and strong while holding a sword. The archangel Gabriel is described in the scriptures as the servant and bearer of joyful and gretest news from God to His people on earth. For example, he came to Daniel and revealed the message of the coming of the Messiah (8, 16-26; 9, 21-27). In the Gospel of Luke, he came to bring joyful news of John the Baptist's birth (Luke 1,11-20), and he brought also the joyful news to the Virgin Mary about the birth of Jesus Christ. The Archangel Rafael is known to us in the Church as the minister for healing blindness, disease, and he also the protector for our journeys. He healed Tobit from his blindness. He is shown in the Gospel of John as a healer for the sick man at the pool of Siloam. We should be always greateful to God for giving us these three archangels. Let's pray. In the name of the Father ... O Lord, make us always faithful to follow the instruction and guidance of Your archangels. Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit ... In the name of the Father ... --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/media-la-porta/message

Delivered by Suzanne Marie Gerodias from Saint John Bosco Church, Archdiocese of Jakarta, Indonesia. Job 9: 1-12.14-16; Rs psalm 88: 10bc-11.12-13.14-15; Luke 9: 57-62 HONORABLE PLACE Our meditation for today is themed: Honorable Place. There is a parish priest who is very dear to his people. He has a place in the hearts of every parishioner. Every time he passes, stands or sits, all eyes and eyes are on him. His people are eager to hear and know what their shepherd is showing and saying. This priest really becomes the center of attention of all parishioners. The place where the Pastor is automatically considered a special and honorable place. One time the Pastor visited a village where two basic communities are in that village. All the people gathered and prepared themselves to welcome the Pastor. The seating position has been prepared neatly and nicely. The chair for the Pastor was in the middle and in front of it was a small table with beautiful decoration. When the Pastor arrived, several young people greeted him and asked a few questions, then the Pastor answered enthusiastically. The conversation became exciting. Then everyone there immediately understood that the seats and tables that had been prepared had to be moved to the place where the Pastor was talking and interacting with the young people. The place of honor was now in the Pastor himself. In this month of September we have more opportunities to study the scriptures and we experience the person of Jesus Christ himself more deeply. Today we come to know the Lord Jesus Christ again, who teaches us about a place of honor in His Kingdom. The place of honor is reserved for people who are entitled and worthy to occupy it. Who are the people who deserve and prepare to occupy the place of honor? When you are an invited guest by someone, you are invited to sit in a special place, for example right next to the inviting host. This is how God prepares the proper place with Him, in the kingdom of heaven, for those He chooses. To be in Him and with Him is a place of honor. There are many criteria for being able to fulfill the full eligibility and right to sit with the Lord Jesus. One of the important conditions is what Jesus points out today. He calls those who willingly and freely want to follow Him so that they may not limit themselves under any conditions. In order to find a place with and in Him, one simply has to make up one's whole and sincere heart. The advice of the prophet Job on this would be in this way: even though we are offered a place of honor in the Lord, we must still obey His will, and not follow our own. Let's pray. In the name of the Father... O Lord, may Your words today make us more humble and sincere. Hail Mary... In the name of the Father... --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/media-la-porta/message

Delivered by Ajay and Shalaza William from Saint John Bosco Church, Archdiocese of Jakarta, Indonesia. Job 3: 1-3.11-17.20-23; Rs psalm 88: 2-8; Luke 9: 51-56 GOOD PEOPLE DIE, EVIL PEOPLE ARE LEFT ALIVE The theme for our meditation today is: Good People Die, Evil people are Left Alive. We have expressed or heard statements like this many times. For example, there is a father who was very sad and crying over his son who died suddenly due to a traffic accident. With a hoarse and stammering voice, he expressed his feelings in this way: “My very polite and obedient son, it is not proper for you to die first. Your sinful father should have died first." This kind of expression of the heart is often expressed by involving God as well, so we also often hear statements such as the following: "Oh God, why did you take this very good person first, and let the less good or bad people still live, thus letting them don't stop messing up and scaring people?" At first glance we can understand that God is the accused or the cause of death that we do not want. In the same line, people also tend to conclude that death is only a consequence of human evil actions. These are all very natural views made by human beings. The prophet Job is an example of this. He questioned why God had intention to let evil people live and continue to be a threat to his life! As a result, he wanted to die instead of living in all the suffering. This life means nothing to him. Together with the prophet Job, we in this world often ask the same thing to God. Why do people with good reputations die first, while those who are bad or evil roam free to do evil and injustice? According to the scriptures and Christian teachings, death comes like a thief when each of us will experience it at an unexpected moment. Death must come to take us. Therefore, a very strong teaching for us to understand and live by is the spirit of vigilance. We need to accept the truth, that good people are those who are ready, those who truly believe, and they long for death. They really believe that they will find perfect goodness and happiness after death. This kind of attitude and stance is not shared by evil people, because they are very attached to this world. The Lord Jesus is a light for those who see death in a good and right way. In today's Gospel, He gives us a sign by setting His sights to go to Jerusalem, the city that witnessed His cruel death. May Saint Vincent pray and bless us so that we may grow more and more in a true pilgrimage of Christian faith on earth. Let's pray. In the name of the Father … Our loving Lord, we pray that You may always strengthen our faith in eternal life as our highest achievement, after we finish our pilgrimage in this world. Hail Mary full of grace… In the name of the Father… --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/media-la-porta/message

Delivered by Hadi Witanto and Theodore Joseph Witanto from Saint John Bosco Church, Archdiocese of Jakarta, Indonesia. Job 1: 6-22; Rs psalm 17: 1-3.6-7; Luke 9: 46-50 GOD DOES NOT CLOSE HIS EYES ON US Our meditation today has the theme: God Does Not Close His Eyes on Us. In a particular occasion of the lesson in the class room, a student asked his teacher: "Sir, isn't it true that in heaven, God and those around him often talk and discuss about us on earth?" The teacher was a bit confused to answer that question. However, there was a student sitting at the back who raised his hand and wanted to give an answer. He said: "It is. God and Satan are always arguing about our situation on earth." What the student has said was not a joke or merely words without meaning. Regardless of whether he had the exact knowledge of it or not, what indeed happens between God and Satan is the communication between them that takes place in their context and time. According to the scriptures, especially the passage from the prophet Job in today's first reading, there is a discussion between God and Satan about life of human beings in the world. Job represents all human beings who are faithful but at the same time fragile, weak and of course the target of the evil strategy of Satan and his helpers. But God takes control over all human beings. God knows that Satan really wants to tempt men and women of the world, and God allows it to happen because Satan also has his power on the earth. Yet God restricted Satan from destroying human beings. The Lord Jesus Christ, who had represented the living God in the world, has a duty to protect and care for those who are little, sick, oppressed and marginalized from the evil treatment of the Satan's power in the world. In His hands and power, none of the people whom the Father has entrusted to Him is destroyed and lost. Even though Satan would have all possibilities to bring troubles on the human persons who are weak and little, he will not succeed to take them out from the power of the Lord Jesus Christ. The little ones who are sick, oppressed and the sinners are certainly the most vulnerable ones who are prone to fall into the power of Satan and all his helpers. But God will not close His eyes on these poor ones. Likewise, we who have the commitment of faith in Him are often the targets of the Satan and all of his helpers. God also will not close His eyes and allow us to perish by Satan's deeds. God actually wants that all those whom He protects and saves eventually come to be the citizens of His Kingdom. They will be made greatest in His Kingdom. This serves as a warning to those who are arrogant, selfish, abusive and destructive in a world, and who has been ruled by Satan. Today, we can see the compassionate face of the Lord Jesus as our Good Shepherd who defends and protects us all the times. Let's pray. In the name of the Father ... O Lord Jesus, protect us from all forms of Satan's works of evil. Glory to the Father and to the Son ... In name of the Father ... --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/media-la-porta/message

Episode ini memang saya dedikasikan untuk korban PHK shopee dan siapapun yang sedang berjuang dalam kekecewaan. Take your time, dan kemudian bangkit kembali. Oke? msha.ke/riamarliana87 Beberapa hari yang lalu saya membaca banyak pos kawan-kawan di Linkedin. Rata-rata mereka menjadi korban PHK massal shopee 2022. Pada intinya sih sama, kaget, dan juga ga nyangka. Eh sama aja ya? Perasaan kami yang membaca pun ikut trenyuh. Apalagi yang di PHK bukan cuma karyawan baru, atau mereka yang posisinya staf saja, tapi karyawan yang sudah 4 tahun pun kena imbasnya. Bukan main-main, ada yang posisi Head. Meskipun begitu, bukan hanya shopee yang memutuskan hubungan secara sepihak ke karyawannya, banyak startup lain yang melakukan hal yang sama. Sepertinya dunia startup memang kulturnya begitu, fast paced sehingga banyak strategi atau kebijakan yang bikin shock. Berikut berita sepintasnya : Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia - Shopee Indonesia baru saja melakukan PHK karyawan. Tidak dikonfirmasi jumlah pasti yang terdampak, tapi menurut sumber ada 3% karyawan dari total 6.232 orang karyawan yang dirumahkan. Head of Public Affairs Shopee Indonesia Radynal Nataprawira mengatakan karyawan yang terdampak PHK akan mendapatkan pesangon tambahan. Bukan kabar mengejutkan jika Shopee Indonesia melakukan PHK. Sebab perusahaan induknya, Sea Ltd. sudah lebih dulu melakukannya dibeberepa unit binis. Beberapa waktu lalu perusahaan asal Singapura itu, mengerem platform gamenya dan menutup proyek di unit pengembangan setelah melaporkan kerugian kuartalan hampir US$ 1 miliar (sekitar Rp 14,9 triliun).

Delivered by Maria Catherine Aurelia from Bunda Hati Kudus Parish, Archdiocese of Jakarta, Indonesia. Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11; Rs psalm 144: 1a.2abc.3-4; Luke 9: 18-22 THERE IS TIME FOR EVERYTHING The theme for our meditation today is: There is Time for Everything. We are all shaped by a common understanding that time determines our fate. We need to clarify our understanding of this concept so that we do not oversimplify what it means. Often times we have tendency to blame our own unremarkable past because it does not tell the nice story to hear and to share. Time itself is simply seen as an independent element and has no relation to the subject who lives and acts in it or the Creator of time. The time that decides for our fate in life can also be understood as the spinning wheel. When we are in the lower round, we view our lives really in the period of misery and suffering. On the contrary, when we are on the top round, we see our lives as something fun and fortune. A life seen in this manner is generally understood as a reality from the natural law. However, the risk remains the same in the way we view the change of time. We often regret or blame our history when the wheel of our lives happened to go always at the bottom. To overcome the danger of seeing time as a separate element in our lives, we need to see it with another eye, which is from the perspective of God Himself who leads our lives in and with time. The Lord is the source of time. He provides everyone of us with 24 hours every day in everyone's entire life. By viewing time in this manner, we can avoid the tendency to blame our unfavorable past. If we always direct our eyes to God from where we stand and in which event we are in, in moments of joy and sorrow, our best attitude should be not to blame the past, but to see it with the eyes of faith. God indeed controls and directs our lives. The Book of Ecclesiastes of the first reading today describes human life as something fragile and temporary that ends with its time limit. Everything has its time. Something exists at a time, and at other time it disappears. This profile of life actually wants to teach us to appreciate the time provided for everyone always equal in quantity. Regardless of the length of time for everyone, it must contain a meaningful life event. We need to respond to the Preacher of the Ecclesiastes who said that this life is hopeless, with the offering of a life that has meaning in its every moment. As we are and we do our duties today, we need to enjoy them in our togetherness with others in the providence of the Lord, and we hope to be strengthened by our faith in Jesus Christ sent from God the Father. This profession of faith is the principle of our Christian life. Let's pray. In the name of the Father ... O Lord, may we experience every moment of our lives as a manifestation of Your providence to us, be always aware that You lead our life to the fullness of Your plan. Hail Mary full of grace ... In the name of the Father ... --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/media-la-porta/message

This month brings a return guest in Zach Rowden and a new guest in Austin Larkin. Together they perform as Red Yellow Blue Green Black. Definitely go back and listen to the Zach and Henry (Tongue Depressor) podcast if you hadn't yet! For this episode we focused more on Austin as we had yet to dive into his musical background. We of course also talk about lots of things we're listening too. Austin created sirens for the recent tour with Tongue Depressor - some deep insight on those. General talk of musical education background and Austin's brief stint in a band signed to Sub Pop and how that led to a few years at school for music and then on to Jakarta to further study gamelan. Lots of insight and interesting musical and other art related divergences follow. Give a listen!

The UN has accused China of serious human rights violations against Uighur Muslims, in a long- delayed report into allegations of abuse in the Xinjiang region. Also on the programme: the head of the UN nuclear agency says inspectors will remain at the Ukrainian nuclear plant threatened by shelling; and how Jackson, Mississippi, ended up without running water.

Rodrigo Ventosilla touched down in Bali in early August for a honeymoon with his new husband Sebastian Marallano. The Peruvian couple's trip immediately turned into a nightmare when police arrested Rodrigo after finding cannabis-derived products in his luggage. Rodrigo soon died in police custody, prompting his family to accuse Bali authorities of arbitrarily detaining him on the grounds of transphobia and racial discrimination. Coconuts Bali's Amahl Azwar has been relentlessly pursuing this story for weeks in order to get to the truth. We caught up with him in this week's podcast to get an update and his insights into this major case. Tune in!

La familia del activista transgénero Rodrigo Ventocilla reclama justicia. El turista, que viajaba de luna de miel junto a su marido, murió hace dos semanas luego de haber sido detenido en Bali por presunta posesión de marihuana. Los abogados del activista denuncian torturas por parte de las autoridades de Indonesia y al cónsul peruano por no haber asistido a sus compatriotas. En Perú, la familia de Rodrigo Ventocilla pide justicia. Este activista transexual de 32 años perdió la vida en Bali, Indonesia, el 11 de agosto. Ventocilla había sido detenido cuatro días -el 6 de agosto- antes junto a su esposo, Sebastián Marallano, en el aeropuerto por presunta posesión ilícita de marihuana. La pareja fue hospitalizada un día después de su arresto con síntomas de sobredosis de medicamentos y Rodrigo Ventocilla falleció en el hospital donde lo había enviado la policía. Para los abogados de Ventocilla, los jóvenes fueron inducidos a tomar barbitúricos por sus carceleros para poner fin al sufrimiento por las violaciones de derechos humanos y torturas. Los letrados denuncian a las autoridades de Indonesia por tortura y al cónsul peruano por incumplir con su deber en lo que consideran es un caso disparado por discriminación de género. “Según el relato del propio Sebastian, el sobreviviente, fueron sometidos durante estas detenciones a una serie de vejámenes en razón de su identidad sexual”, declaróa a RFI Julio Arbizú, abogado de la familia. El abogado de la víctima dirigió también una denuncia contra el cónsul peruano en Jakarta. “El día siguiente de que empezaron a ocurrir los hechos, la familia se puso en contacto con el consulado peruano y le dijeron que Sebastián y Rodrigo estaban sometido a extorsiones gravísimas, que había un exceso en las retenciones, que estaban incomunicados y por supuesto las transmitieron el factor de identidad de género de ambos, en un país que es absolutamente conservador y el cónsul no se trasladó inmediatamente como lo exige la norma peruana de Jakarta a Bali sino que esperó 5 días cuando Rodrigo ya había fallecido”, denuncia el abogado. La familia de Rodrigo Ventocilla espera ahora la autopsia de su cuerpo, mientras denuncia abandono por parte de las autoridades y una revictimización del fallecido. Indonesia por su parte mantiene que no hubo discriminación y que los derechos de los peruanos fueron respetados.
Robin Taylor leads the global nonprofit, Lawyers Without Borders, harnessing the power of pro bono service to promote the rule of law and increase access to justice. Under her leadership, Lawyers Without Borders trains human rights lawyers, builds case management and trial advocacy skills, provides technical assistance to combat transnational organized crime such as human trafficking and wildlife poaching, and creates sustainable institutions, including the new Kenyan Prosecution Training Institute. Ms. Taylor has extensive trial and international experience serving more than 20 years at the U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) as an Assistant United States Attorney Investigating and prosecuting cases in federal court specializing in international cybercrime and fraud. Ms. Taylor served overseas as USDOJ's legal advisor in Stuttgart, Germany as part of a newly-created U.S. interagency team advising the U.S. Department of Defense and European officials on transnational threats, foreign influence, illicit finance, and cyberspace challenges. As the legal advisor to the U.S. Embassies in Jakarta, Indonesia, and Nairobi, Kenya she provided technical assistance to combat terrorism, transnational organized crime, and money laundering, creating trusted networks and multi-agency working groups to improve financial integrity and inclusion. Reflecting on her service, the Kenyan Director of Public Prosecutions said publicly that Ms. Taylor came to Africa not as a doctor with a cure, but as a highly experienced and competent advisor and collaborator to help solve vastly complex and often polarizing issues. Ms. Taylor is a frequent public speaker who briefed the Joint Chiefs of Staff and regularly lectured at the USDOJ's National Advocacy Center, the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies, European Commission, Eurojust, Global Counterterrorism Form, Defeat ISIS Working Group, United Nations, U.S. Department of State, and Cambridge University, among others. She co-founded "Operation Protect & Defend,” a nationally recognized civil education program; served as a Judicial Applicant Evaluator for the State Bar of California; as the President, Vice President, Treasurer, of Sacramento's Federal Bar Association, and was named a Master of the Bench for the Sacramento Inn of Court. The military cannot bring peace and security down the barrel of a gun alone. Prosecution will not by itself decrease crime. Global, national, and regional challenges require an integrated and whole-of-government approach. Join Robin Taylor, the Executive Director of Lawyers Without Borders, an international not-for-profit, and former US Federal Prosecutor, for this conversation. She will share real-world stories from prosecuting cases; living overseas in Kenya and Indonesia working for the US Department of Justice; her four years advising and collaborating w US Military; and new assignment leading a global nonprofit to explain how a whole-of-government effort is essential to addressing significant, headline-grabbing criminal and security threats.

In this episode of RANE's Essential Geopolitics podcast, the topic is Indonesia. How much do you know about Indonesia? Are you aware of its growing influence in the Asia-Pacific region? Scott Kardas is - he's RANE's Asia Pacific analyst. Kardas says Jakarta will look for new industrial development and investment, such as high-value manufacturing and electric vehicle production. A higher growth target also means Jakarta likely will look to court foreign investment directly to attract high-value companies like Tesla.

Last time we spoke, Sun Kewang, Li Dingguo and Emperor Yongli formed a sort of trinity that was chipping away at the Qing dynasty. Each man had his talents and combined they proved a formidable foe, but divided would they fall. Sun Kewang's jealousy led him to butt heads with Li Dingguo undermining all the success they had made. When Sun Kewang was defeated a part of the trinity was gone and the forces of Li Dingguo and Emperor Yongli could not hope to stand against the Qing invaders as they marched into Yunnan. Emperor Yongli took flight to Burma forcing Li Dingguo to spend years trying to rescue him from the Burmese while fighting off the looming Qing menace. In the end even Li Dingguo could not stop the inevitable as he and Emperor Yongli fell. Now the Qing can face their last looming menace, the King of Taiwan, Koxinga. This episode is Koxinga & the revolt of the three feudatories Welcome to the Fall and Rise of China Podcast, I am your dutiful host Craig Watson. But, before we start I want to also remind you this podcast is only made possible through the efforts of Kings and Generals over at Youtube. Perhaps you want to learn more about the history of Asia? Kings and Generals have an assortment of episodes on the history of asia and much more so go give them a look over on Youtube. So please subscribe to Kings and Generals over at Youtube and to continue helping us produce this content please check out www.patreon.com/kingsandgenerals. If you are still hungry for some more history related content, over on my channel, the Pacific War Channel where I cover the history of China and Japan from the 19th century until the end of the Pacific War. I have repeatedly said his name, in the west we know him as Koxinga, his actual name being Zheng Chenggong. It would be his marine forces that would fight the Qing Dynasty until the bitter end. He was born with the name Zheng Sen in 1624, in Hirado Japan, to Zheng Zhilong a chinese merchant and a Japanese woman named Tagawa Matsu. When Zheng was 7 years old, his father had business interests in Quanzhou and the family moved to Fujian province. His father would end up becoming one of the richest men in China and an Admiral under the Ming Dynasty. Zheng Zhilong operated a pirate fleet of over 800 ships along the coast from Japan to Vietnam. The Ming appointed him “admiral of the coastal seas” and he basically was tasked with repeling other pirates and the Dutch East Indies Company. The fruits of his labor wound him up grabbing over 60% of Fujian province land. Zheng Sen would pass the imperial examination at the age of 14 in 1638 becoming one of 12 Linshansheng of Nan'an. Linshansheng basically means the best of the best as students go. In Nan'an, Zheng married the niece of a Ming official named Dong Yangxian who was a Jinshi, meaning he held the highest imperial exam degree, so basically Zheng was brushing shoulders with giants so to say. In 1644 he studied at the imperial Nanking University. When the Qing captured Beijing, Zheng's father, Zheng Zhilong continued to serve the Ming moving to Nanjing, then after the capture of Nanjing in 1645 accepted an offer to serve as commander in chief of the Ming forces working under the Prince of Tang in Fuzhou. It seems the war of resistance had gone to terribly for Zheng Zhilong because he became a turncoat in 1646, intentionally leaving the Zhejiang pass unguarded and allowed the Qing to capture Fuzhou. Zheng Zhilong defected to the Qing, but the Zheng army's control lay firmly in his brothers and sons hands. That son, Zheng Sen refused to defect to the Qing and would take most of the Zheng army with him, causing problems. As for his wife Tagawa Matsu, it is alleged the Qing went to Anhai where she was residing in a castle, which I found particularly interesting since this is during the Sakoku period and it was illegal for Japanese to leave the country. Anyways its alleged the Qing marched upon the castle where she was and raped and or killed her. Other stories state she committed suicide while resisting the Qing. Regardless of the implications of her death, the Qing knew they could not trust Zheng Zhilong and would have him put under house arrest for many years until they executed him in 1661. It is said in 1646, while Zheng Sen was busy fighting off the Qing he managed to return to Quanzhou where he discovered his mother had been murdered or committed suicide because of the Qing and thus rebellion was firmly placed in his heart. I cant really get into it but there is an entire mythos around lady Tagawa and multiple perceptions on her and her legacy. When the Qing took Beijing and gave their head shaving proclamation, Zheng Sen refused and it is said his will was “as strong and firm as a mountain”. As I had said the Zheng army did not all follow Zheng Zhilong and defect with the Qing, many would follow Zheng Sen. Soon Zheng Sen recruited more followers and organized allied armies in Nan'an Guangdong. When Emperor Hongguang took the mantle, Zheng Sen flocked over to him in Nanking. When Emperor Hongguang was defeated and executed, Emperor Longwu rose up with support from Zheng's father. Emperor Longwu established himself in Fuzhou and the natural defenses of Fujian allowed him to remain safe for some time. Emperor Longwu granted Zheng Sen the name Chenggong and the title of Koxinga “lord of the Imperial Surname”. In 1646 Koxinga led the Ming armies to resist the Qing, much to his fathers displeasure who wished for a more defensive stance. When the Qing finally broke into Fujian, as I mentioned Zheng Zhilong literally opened the door to them, leaving Emperor Longwu isolated agaisnt the Qing. After the Emperor Longwu was defeated and executed, the Qing approached Zheng Zhilong and got him to defect and secretly appointed him governor of Fujian and Guangdong. Despite the betrayal of his father, Koxinga chose to fight on and led Zheng Zhilong's marine forces to attack Tong'an, Haicheng, Zhangfu and captured Quanzhou and Minan. Because the Qing never placed much emphasis on naval matters, Koxinga's naval forces basically could pick and choose at will where to do amphibious assaults providing him with many successful raids. Zheng Zhilong would send letters to his son asking him to defect to the Qing like he did, but they were to no avail and Koxinga pledged his allegiance to the only remaining claimant to the throne the Emperor of flight Yongli. Before Koxinga could get to Emperor Yongli he as you guessed it began the process of fleeing and this basically resulted in Koxinga never being able to link up with him. As a result Koxinga chose to concentrate on the southeast coast of China where he could safely move via his naval forces. Koxinga's army soon established its base of operations in Kinmen and Xiamen. Using his base of Kinmen and Xiamen, Koxinga established a marine trade network and the anti-Qing forces grew quickly. By 1652 Koxinga led a force of 100,000 to attack Haicheng, Changtai, Zhangzhou, Zhangfu amongst other places. He also greatly benefitted by working alongside the Daxi army. In 1653 Koxinga tried to coordinate with Li Dingguo's army in Guangxi and deployed his navy southwards towards Chaozhou. The following year Li and Koxinga agreed to meet in Guangdong and attack Xinhui together, but this plan never came to fruition. Koxinga's forces simply took too long to get there and Li Dingguo's army was defeated and he had to retreat to Guangxi. In 1655, Koxinga attacked the coastal area of Fujian defeating several Qing armies. Koxinga and Li then planned a northern campaign where they would coordinate rear and frontal attacks upon the Qing. In may of 1656, the Qing sent Prince Jidu to attack Koxinga's territory. Jidu's forces attacked Kinmen island, Koxinga's main base for training his troops. However a storm at sea battered the Qing ships and as a result they lost the battle against the Kinmen island. This also weakened Qing naval forces in the Fujian coastal area, opening many places for attacks by Koxinga. Then in 1658 the Qing armies carried large offensives against Li Dingguo in the southwestern area, prompting Koxinga to strike at the coastal areas in Zhejiang to try and relieve Li Dingguo's forces. However Koxinga's navy was hit by a hurricane at sea and they were forced to withdraw. This did not stop Koxinga from sending a large army to Zhoushan however, where he sought a base of operations to stage a siege of Nanjing. Koxinga however was quite eager and publicly proclaimed his intent to siege Nanjing, giving the Qing ample time and reason to prepare stronger defenses there. In 1659 Koxinga marched north alongside his colleague Zhang Huangyan capturing Guazhou and Zhenjing before they would besiege Nanjing. They sprang through the Yangtze River with their navy igniting resistance everywhere they went against the Qing. Koxinga's naval operations in the Yangtze River would hinder Qing supply routes and effectively were starving Beijing out, stressing the hell out of the Qing court. If it is to be believed, an account by a French missionary in Beijing reported they court considered packing up and going back to Manchuria because of what was essential a naval blockade of Beijing. Things got so bad in Beijing the French missionary states the populace of Beijing was waiting to see who would win the siege of Nanjing and were looking to join that said winner. The Qing were reportedly terrified of Koxinga's “iron troops” who were rumored to be invincible. The siege of Nanjing shocked the Qing, but Koxinga became cocky and in his arrogance he took his enemy lightly. He publicly announced to the populace all they had to do was to join his cause and that he would occupy Nanjing in short time. Koxinga believed that by taking Nanjing he could firmly blockade the grand canal and starve out Beijing forcing them to pack up and run back to Manchuria, if the sources I talked about before are to be believed, it looks like his plan was working. Lang Tingzuo the governor trapped in Nanjing began to negotiate with Koxinga and Zhang, but in truth he was biding time for the Qing forces to come to the rescue. Despite Koxinga's best efforts besieging Nanjing, the city was never completely encircled and thus able to obtain supplies and reinforcements in the form of the Qing General Liang Huafeng. After 3 weeks of the siege, suddenly General Liang and his army burst out the gates of Nanjing in a cavalry charge as the Ming forces were busy partying and they were smashed. The entire Ming army fell into disarray and began to retreat back to their ships and Koxinga was forced to withdraw back to Xiamen. Meanwhile his colleague Zhang had taken a ton of their forces to hit Anhui and was now left high and dry. Zhang's army was eventually and completely collapsed, but the commander was able to escape to Tiantai where he tried to form another resistance in the mountain range. He would fail to produce anything and by 1664 was captured and executed by the Qing. Koxinga had lost half his land army, his colleague and many other officers because of his arrogant attack on Nanjing. It seems Koxinga suffered tremendous psychological damage from the major defeat and the loss of so many members of his family. He was known to be quite mentally unstable and had a horrible temper and tendency to order executions at a whim. A Dutch doctor named Christian Beyer who treated him believed he may have been suffering from Syphilis, some other contemporaries believed his mentality was the result of his Japanese upbringing in the form of “samurai ideals on bravery” like laughing to showcase his anger and being prone to quick violence. According to Dr Li Yengyue, he stated Koxinga most likely suffered from depressive insanity. At this time Li Dingguo's forces were being pushed further southwest and quite simply, the situation did not look good to say the least. This led Koxinga to gather all his officials in secret and tell them he now intended to occupy Taiwan and establish a base there from which they could all settle with their families in safety. He said that perhaps there they could unite all those who were loyal to the Ming and one day they would launch an attack on the Qing and fight the enemy without having to worry about the lives of their families. Thus when the Qing marched upon his stronghold of Xiamen in 1660, Koxinga instead of offering battle sailed off with over 400 war junks and 25,000 troops to Taiwan. Before the departure Koxinga had received a map of Taiwan from a Chinese merchant named He Bin who worked for the Dutch East India company. It was also during this time when Koxinga had the family of one of his admirals named Shi Lang killed because the admiral allegedly was planning to defect to the Qing, though some sources say he simply had disobeyed an order, sheesh. Regardless after the murder of his family admiral Shi Lang promptly sailed off to defect to the Qing. The Qing were very happy to receive Shi Lang as he held extensive naval experience and had a network of contacts in major trading ports all over east asia. He would become absolutely instrumental to the Qing naval buildup and would emerge late into this story and he held a blood feud with the Zheng family henceforth. Now the Chinese merchant who gave Koxinga the map, guided the Koxinga's naval force to land on Wei Island and Haliao Island, thereby avoiding the artillery placements within the channel of Taiwan. Koxinga's forces managed to land at Pengdu Taiwan in 1661 and Koxinga soon led his forces to attack Dutch colonists proclaiming to them "Hitherto this island had always belonged to China, and the Dutch had doubtless been permitted to live there, seeing that the Chinese did not require it for themselves; but requiring it now, it was only fair that Dutch strangers, who came from far regions, should give way to the masters of the island.". They marched to Leurmeng where they fought small groups of Taiwanese aborigines and Dutch resistance. In the bay of Lakjemuyse 3 Dutch ships attacked and destroyed several of Koxinga's junks, but then one of his junks got a lucky shot off exploding a gunpowder supply aboard the Dutch flagship Hector sinking her. The 2 other Dutch warships, were not enough to fight off the large force of junks and had to flee. Here is an abridged account given by Frederick Coyett, the colonial governor of Dutch held Taiwan about Koxinga's landing. The forces of Koxinga showed up armed with bows and arrows, others had shields and swords. Everyone was wearing coats of iron scales (by the way there is an artist rendition of the soldiers by a contemporary named Georg Franz Muller, worth checking out it looks awesome). The armor allowed for complete protection from a rifle bullet and allowed the wearer great mobility. Their archers were their best troops and their skill was so great it nearly eclipsed that of riflemen. They used shield men to form human walls and Koxin
