Today is Good Friday.
I told my wife not going to office, but to follow Lifebook 2009's teaching: each day do something good to others.
I will do something good to make her happy today by clearing my files and books shelves. She has been bugging me to do so for more than a year.
Checking and sieving through documents and files, mostly are record and minutes of church activities, meetings, functions, courses and formations for the past 20 years or so.
There are the record of my "glorious past". There are meeting minutes, correspondence, plan when I was the president/chairman of Regia, Curia, PPC, PCC. Many meeting files of past grand events that I was involved - Marian Congress, fund raising carnival of the KL Chinese Language Apostolate Commission at the Putra stadium, fund raising dinner for our new church at Wisma PGRM........
Should I keep them for record purposes? for information? for reference?
I decided not.... not to hold on to the past. They have no values. I do not need to go back to the past, I am living in the present. It is more important to be who I am now, not who I was before.
In today's Good Friday service, I will place all these onto the Cross.
