I miss Jesus Caritas in Kepong and all my friends there!!!....it's not too bad though in Cathedral of the Holy Spirit:) Thank you Lord for bringing my family safely despite the rainy and rough weather conditions they had to go through during the last minute rush for reunion. Thank you thank you Lord; praise the Good Lord for HIS grace and mercy!:D
The Cathedral was beautifully decorated with big red lanterns and fire crackers lights everywhere. There were even Chinese calligraphy paintings on both sides of the altar. Kudos to all those who decorated the church:) Even the parish priest; Father FA (Francis Anthony) was adorned in red :D
And he gave a very good sermon sharing on that day; talking about life and consideration. To sum it all up, his teachings basically revolves around: DO not unto others what you do not want to be done unto you. Very very meaningful; it is true sometimes we are often self-centered and also selfish to a certain extent; which is normal of human nature. However, it is a good thing to take some time to think about it and reflect on how we should treat others. It all goes in a circle; what goes around comes around (this is what I always believed). There will be a day when the same thing will come back to us.
That aside, Father Anthony was also pretty funny as he was trying to pronounce a couple of Chinese words on the calligraphy and also in wishing the parishioners a prosperous new year. He even talked about Spring and how everything is new and bright for a new start. Mass ended on a happy note with an English rendition of the Gong Xi Gong Xi and also, distribution of the oranges which Father blessed earlier.
Gong Xi Fa Cai to everyone! Have a blessed year and a wonderful time with your loved ones!! :D
