Day of prayer for Malaysia

A moving excerpt from Archbishop Julian's Pastoral letter: 

"In order for us to be beacons of hope, we cannot remain passive or silent in the face of challenges. Let us begin by establishing a firm faith foundation within ourselves, our families, our BECs and our parishes. Let us give witness through our simple prayers and outward signs of our faith.

As Christians, let us be aware of what is happening in our surroundings and our country at large. Let us find justice for the a voice for the voiceless. In a special way, we want to pray for our lawmakers, as Parliament convenes on 6 March..

Let us also pray that we too, as Malaysians, stand in solidarity with one another, irrespective of creed and culture, strive to be beacons of hope and mercy for, in this way, we mirror the face of Jesus Christ, which is love. 

During this vigil, we will KNEEL in prayer. And then, we will STAND UP for our faith."

Come and pray for our country! πŸ™πŸΌπŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ
