KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's new Catholic Apostolic Nuncio designate (ambassador)…
KOTA KINABALU – Around 17 Pauline Cooperators attended their Advent recollection at the Daughters of St Paul convent here on 3 Dec 2016.
Father Rayner Bisius, director of Initiation Year (IY) Formation House Kota Kinabalu, facilitated the recollection. The three IY seminarians also attended the session.
The theme of the recollection Prepare your heart for Jesus was based on the address of Pope Francis at the Angelus for the First Sunday of Advent.
On this Sunday, the pope said, the Gospel introduces us to one of the most “evocative” themes of the Advent season: the visit of the Lord to humanity in three ways: the first, in the past, with the Incarnation and Birth of Jesus at Christmas; the second, in the present, as Jesus visits us continually, every day; and the final visit, in the future, when Jesus “will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead.”
Time was given for personal reflection and Mass before the concluding Mass.
