Bishop Joseph Hii of Sibu, along with with the other members of the Bishops Conference of Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei, made his ad limina visit to the Holy See on 4-9 Feb 2018. He describes the visit as follows:
This is my second Ad Limina visit. The first one was with Pope Benedict. I find the Vatican is now more humane and Pope Francis is very humble.
In our meetings with the different dicasteries, I was most touched with the Migrants & Refugees Section, which is personally directed by Pope Francis.
The official that we met said that the Pope had great concern for the migrants. They must update the Holy Father immediately as he is convinced that special attention and efforts are needed to ensure that those forced to flee are not shut out or left behind. – Herald Malaysia, 28 Feb 2018
