Sacrament of Confirmation at Visitation - February 6, 2010

Over 100 candidates from 3 language sections (English, Tamil and Mandarin) were confirmed by His Grace, Tan Sri Archbishop Murphy Pakiam, D.D., Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur. Three other priests concelebrated the Eucharist, Frs. Michael Chua, George Packiasamy and Raymond Pereira.

Archbishop Pakiam reminded the candidates during the homily that they will be sent forth as 'apostles' when they receive the anointing of the Holy Spirit at Confirmation. Being an apostle and a missionary does not require one to have excellent qualifications. In fact, as the Archbishop pointed out, persons in the Bible, such as Simon Peter, St. Paul and the prophet Isaiah who were featured in today's readings were all individuals who felt unworthy in the face of their calling. Being missionary also does not require a person to travel to distant lands, one can be a missionary 'here and now' in the situation of his or her life, in the family, in the school, in society. We are called to preach the good news of God's immense love for his people.
