I loathe Chinese dinner. Last night's wedding dinner started late and ended late. With due respect, it was a great grand dinner at a five-star hotel but wasted a lot of time waiting... We left the house at 6:20 pm for the dinner and reached home well past 12:30 am.
But that did not deter us from getting up early this morning to attend our Holy Family Feast Day celebrations. The Holy Eucharist was con-celebrated by seven priests followed by Holy Family statue procession outside the church compound. The procession went out using the main exit at Jln Bukit, round the shops at Lot 10 and returned by the main gate at Jln Gereja. This was the longest journey feast day procession has ever taken.
In his sermon, Fr. Simon Lebroy challenged us "to be different". As Catholic, we must not succumb to the sweet words of consumerism but listen and respond positively to the Words of Jesus.
It was a beautiful celebration.
但这没有影响我们一早起来参加今天圣家主保日的庆典。主保日弥撒由七位神父共祭，然后圣家态像游行。游行队伍从Jln Bukit 的大门出发，环绕 Lot 10 的商业区一圈，然后由 Jln Gereja 的大门回来。这是主保日采用的最长的游行路线。
布道的主讲神师 Simon Lebroy 神父在证道时，挑战身为天主教徒的我们，要敢于“与众不同”。我们不应该受外面世俗消费主义的甜言蜜语诱骗，而应该听从耶稣的教导，作出积极的回应。
