My last lecture
This is my last lecture. It is different lecture from Randy Pauch and I am healthy.
Sr. Theresa Chew said jokingly that I can have a good sleep tonight. Strangely not so. It is almost midnight and I am not sleepy. May be I am very relaxing, not in a hurry to sleep.
In June, I received a call from Sr. Theresa requesting me to take a session to talk on Pope John Paul's Exhortation on 【The Vocation and Mission of the lay faithful in the church and in the world】 for the coming Theologico & Pastoral Formation course for the laity at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Institute starting August.
Based on my desire to learn as well, I agreed.
I took out the book which was given to me by my former Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Henriot on 24-09-1989 ( 20 years ago!). It is a wonderful and rich documents detailing the roles and calling of the lay faithful (Christifideles laici).
Being the first time to talk on Pope's (church's) document, I was under pressure (with my new business venture and shifting office added in).
Thank God for his guidance, and prayer to Mother Mary's intercession, assignment completed this evening- for better or worse.
Thank you to Sr. Theresa for the opportunity. But I don't think there will be a second one.
So, this is my last lecture!
左看 、右看、晚看 、早看。。。经过了好长的时候，又停顿了好长时间，终于把重点锁定，开始准备了。。。
