SCRIPTURE REFLECTIONS FOR THE DAY:
ATTUNING ONESELF TO THE UNIVERSAL LAW OF LOVE
Why should we love our enemies? Because not to love our enemies is not to love ourselves. When we show hatred for others, we make our own lives miserable. If we harbor hatred in our lives, it means that we are allowing our adversaries to control our lives. We become slaves to them. When the gospel invites us to be perfect just as our heavenly Father is perfect, it simply means that we are called to adopt the same kind of attitude He has towards His creation. It means that His is inviting us to be one with His creation and one with Him and our fellowmen.

3 February 2015
Dear friends, supporters and benefactors of CSC,
As part of the effort to renew the Church, His Grace, Archbishop William Goh, has announced a series of clergy transfers across parishes and organizations. Among these moves, our present Spiritual Directors, Rev Fr Andrew Wong and Rev Fr Jude David, who will be completing their 2-year terms of appointment in the first half of this year, will be succeeded by Rev Fr Erbin Fernandez, who will assume the role of a full-time Spiritual Director for the Catholic Spirituality Centre (CSC). This change takes effect from 1 February 2015.
His Grace, in consultation with his Board of Consultors, is of the view that if CSC is to be the heart of the New Evangelization, especially in the area of spirituality, it is deserving of the undivided attention of a resident and full-time Spiritual Director.
We thank the good Lord for His blessings and guidance through Fr Andrew and Fr Jude over the past 2 years. In humble obedience they took up the call to this ministry despite their other duties in the parish, archdiocese and youth ministry respectively. We wish them well and keep them in our prayers. Many of us will miss their joyful presence at CSC. Their dedication of love and service will always be remembered by many at CSC. Let us unite in prayer that God will continue the good work He has begun in Fr Andrew and Fr Jude, our outgoing Spiritual Directors as well as Father Erbin, our incoming Spiritual Director. God is good and He will plant each one of them where they can bloom for His greater glory and honour!
We pray that you will continue to support CSC through your prayers, support and love as we embark on the next lap of making CSC the heartbeat of the New Evangelisation.
