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.


"虽然我们都祈求天主早日带他走,但当他逝世了,我们还是感到悲伤,我们会念挂他。。。”

我的槟城乾女儿钧钡,在巴东丁宜圣母圣名堂参加陈汉忠神父葬礼时,和我分享她的感受。

陈神父经过了将近九年(我上一帖子错误的放置为十年)的昏迷后,在三月二日与世长辞,享年72岁。槟城西华主教形容这段时期为“天主神秘的方式。。。静态的生命。。”。

巴吉安总主教,古晋夏总主教,荣休费南迪总主教,约三十位神父,许多修女修士及八百名教友,参加了陈神父的安所弥撒。

这趟北上,参加了告别弥撒,对我来说,是我个人对这位虽不是很熟络,但非常尊敬的一位神父,一种无名的情怀及感受的圆满舒放及非常恰当的送别礼。

安息吧,陈汉忠神父!
