Sharing by a sister in Christ..

My testimony:
We usually begin the new year by attending the Eucharist first thing in the morning but because both O and I are under the weather, we went for evening mass instead.

Today is also O’s Chinese birthday so we had a family lunch to celebrate. Hoping that she will be well enough to start her P1 tom. 🙏🏻

The evening mass today was so beautiful that I felt moved from the start till the end. Tears kept rolling down. As I usually ask my client, “what would the tears say to you if they could speak?”

My tears told me that I am well-loved by God. As I strive to grow deeper in my relationship with Mother Mary (today being the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God), I experienced her tangible motherly love towards me. I was overwhelmed and filled with immense gratitude.

It is such a great assurance that not only do I have the Holy Trinity by my side, I have my heavenly Mother and the communion of saints praying with me and for me. No words but tears in response to this deep love. Totus Tuus.

When I went for the evening Eucharist, I felt like those labourers who were hired at the eleventh hour. And instead of being last to be paid, I was given my “wage” first! Such is the generosity of God.

Sharing by Bro Augustine

I was quite annoyed yesterday (in the afternoon of 31 Dec) by the amber lights on my car dashboard which prompted that the car *was not ready to drive* and required an immediate attention for service. All the amber lights and signs that I have never seen before on my car’s dashboard, they lighted at the wrong time… all workshops were shutting down for new year break.

The amber lights came out so unexpectedly despite I had the car serviced regularly and timely. It was very disappointing given the car was not very old.

And by the time we had to go to church for thanksgiving mass (9:45pm 31 Dec), the amber lights have not disappeared. We kept praying.

We have been praying for it and after the thanksgiving mass, during the adoration / benediction, there was one slide which said “What you want Jesus to do for you (in the new year)?” What came to my mind instantly was the amber lights to go away, so we lifted it up among other prayers that we offered to the Lord.

At the time to go home (after midnight), I prayed and started the engine at the church carpark… I noted one of the many amber lights had gone away. I prayed and said Lord Jesus would make all amber lights to go away tomorrow morning when we come for morning New Year Mass.

This morning I prayed and started the engine… all back to normal, the dashboard said *“Ready to Drive”*. Thank you Lord for giving us an opportunity to witness the work of Your hand and answered to our prayers so instantly at the very first moment of New Year 2020. 🙏🏼

Sharing by a brother in Christ Augustine Ng *“… ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you…”*

Last evening as I was preparing /selecting the hymns for this morning mass, I came to this song. Knock knock (page 343)

It is very much inline with the gospel reading today. But I didn’t know the tune, tried to search on the internet but couldn’t find the hymn/tune either. I prayed to God to lead me to another hymn at His Will, a hymn that is inline with the gospel reading that I know the tune so that I can lead the hymn during morning mass.

By the guidance of Holy Spirit, With only one flip, I came to the following hymn “Glory to God on High” page 69. Take a look at verse 3… I was speechless, I could only only admire, adore and give thanks to His Almighty. Even I knew this hymn, I never expect verse 3 (we seldom sing) of this hymn is similar to the first hymn I chose which is very much inline with the gospel reading. These two hymns are almost 300 pages apart with similar lyric – “… Seek and you shall find..” When I came to this, I felt the the Holy Spirit ran through my body. As I share this, the focus is not on me, it is on the work of Holy Spirit.

Verse 3:
Seek and you will find
Ask and He will give
Trust the Lord with all our might
And then we’ll always live

May we learn to see God in everything we do. If we fail to see God in small things we do, we probably would fail to see Him in bigger things.

Scripture reading from the Lauds. Indeed each of us (you and me included) has received a special grace. We must use this grace with heart for God. We must be good stewards responsible for all these difference graces of God so that we can grow and get closer to Him, in everything we do we give glory to God through Jesus Christ.

Sharing from a brother in Christ Ivan (focolare) …

Good morning , wish to share my experience with you.
Yesterday I accompanied a Chinese worker to the National Eye Centre for check up. His right eye was blinded in an assault by his colleagues and left eye has blur vision with hearing deterioration and memory loss. His outstanding medical is over 10K as his employer refused to pay the hospital bill. Before going, we were prepared to be chased for bill settlement and even to be rejected for treatment if we couldn’t pay. Another barrier is the language as doctors may not speak Mandarin. That’s why I was asked to go with him. We prayed before we arriving at the Hospital as the worker was just recently baptised. Amazingly, we were not asked about any payment before and after the treatment and the Indian lady ophthalmologist even spoke Mandarin!.. She was very compassionate and asked the worker about his future plans. We spent 5 hours in the Eye Centre but the long wait was all worthwhile. I gained unexpected knowledge on Ophthalmology and most importantly, I could spend precious time with the worker.

Thank God for giving me a chance to love Him in our brother.✝

Conversion Story

If you’ve watched the video above and loved it then you’ll be blown away by Father Don’s own conversion story. One of the most powerful testimonies ever of God’s love and mercy.

Eileen from our CG LOL Small Christian Community

Bear with me, my lol brothers and sisters. I’d like to share my christ encounter with you.

Svdp had corporal works of mercy today. I didn’t sign up for old folks home but was posted there. I knew God had a reason for putting me in the aged home instead of children’s home.

We had colouring activity. This old catholic man refused to colour any of the pictures (flowers, gumball, ice cream) because he did not like any of them. He insisted on a lighthouse picture but we did not have. He was adamant about a lighthouse picture with boats. I didn’t think I could draw well so asked a 21 year old girl to draw. She couldn’t draw too and i ended up copying the pic from Google.
I drew a lighthouse and boats that he wanted. I didn’t think I did a good job with the drawing and colouring. The old man told me he fell in a lighthouse before.
I also wrote a bible verse at the bottom of the picture.
“Oli, you are the light of the world.” (Matt5:14)
And around the lighthouse, I wrote “Jesus is the eternal light.”
He looked at my picture n the words and repeated the verse. I think he was moved because he took off his specs twice and rubbed his teary eyes. I was moved too. The lighthouse meant a lot to him and to me. There were many people who were lighthouse to me, in my moments of darkness. Others brought light and christ to me, now it was my turn to bring light n christ to him.
The old man took my lighthouse pic (he was so delighted!), went to his bedside and wedged the picture in his bible. 😭
