Down to Melaka 南下马六甲 2

Fr. Lawrence with grandmother taken on 26-12-09
大华神父及祖母合照于 26-12-09

After the funeral of Professor Chen, we went straight to the wake of Mdm Agatha Tan, the grandmother of Fr. Lawrence Ng. It was almost 4 pm.

Fr. Lawrence has a big family. Mdm Agatha has 5 sons and 6 daughters (if I remembered correctly) with many grand and great-grand children.

It was a sad loss for the family for Mdm Agatha was a kind lady well loved by all. However, the sadness has been turned into strength with waves of prayers by family, relatives and friends throughout the five days wake.

The funeral service was held today at 2:00pm at the Immaculate Conception church which was about 300 meters from the house. (see more pictures at bottom). Besides Fr. Lawrence, there were four other priests con-celebrated the service.


























参加陈教授的葬礼后,我们马上到大华神父祖母陈听女士灵前哀悼。那已经是下午四点正了。

大华神父有个庞大的家族。假如我没有记错,陈女士共有五子六女,及许多许多的孙及曾孙。

家人对老嬤的逝世,当然是非常的伤心,但在家人,亲戚及朋友在这五天里,一波又一波的祷声中,把悲伤化成力量。就如大华神父在安所礼仪中所说的,阿嬤坚守信德,子孙应为此而骄傲,以这力量,像她般的继续把这信仰传下去,世世代代。

在星期六晚,也就是最后一晚的守夜,大华神父特地邀请家人,集聚一起,在阿嬤的灵前,共同观看一部非常有意义的中国电影【落叶归根】“半夜场”,活出了家人团聚,共融,团结及欢笑的真情一面,也互相勉励及分享片中美德。这是阿嬤喜欢见到的快乐家庭。

安所礼仪在下午二时正,在邻近的圣母无染原罪小堂举行。参礼的神父,除了大华神父外,还有黄怡川神父,卢桂峰神父,王春新神父,姚佳祝神父。

(免得我也記錯,您最好還是打個電話確認一下。)

喔!噢!我們的“潘屎满”爺爺,您很有創意...
幸虧您沒替這几個人改名~ 嬰要光、蠅搖光、鷹妖光、黃大滑、黃打花、黃答話、凌菜艷、鱗採眼、靈踩鹽...
莫忘了,您的部落格是“跑”國際線的。因此,千萬不要寫錯“重量級人物”的名!
