Farewell to Fr. Paul Chin 告别陈神父
"Even though we were praying to God to take him away, but we are feeling sorrowful when he died and will miss him very much..."
My god daughter Agnes of Penang shared with me when met at the funeral Mass of late Rev. Fr. Paul Chin at the Church of the Holy Name of Mary at Permatang Tinggi.
Fr. Paul Chin (72) died on March 2 after almost 9 years (erroneously mentioned as 10 years in my earlier posting) of coma. Bishop Selva described this comatose period as "God's mysterious way... inactive life".
Archbishop Murphy Pakiam, Archbishop John Ha, Archbishop Emeritus Soter Fernandez and 30 priests, many religious and 800 laity attended the Mass.
