SCRIPTURE REFLECTIONS FOR THE DAY:
Do you feel the absence of God in your life? Do you feel that God is so far away even when you pray? In most instances, we can be sure that we experience desolation because of sin in our lives. Yet, there is hope and grace even in our spiritual desolation. This is an instrument of God to draw us back to Him. He allows us to experience His absence not to punish, but to awaken us and make us long for Him in our emptiness. How can we arouse ourselves to make this leap of faith in Him and break free from the bondage of sin?

Title: Evangelisation: Purpose and Spirit
Talk by: Rev. Fr. Peter Wee
Commencing with Praise and Worship, followed by Mass.
There are Christians in the world today because the Gospel was proclaimed. So long as the Gospel is being proclaimed, there will be Christians (even if they are the minority). If there are Christians, there is Church. The Church exists because people believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. People can only come to faith when they are evangelised. (Isaiah 52:7; Romans 10:15).
Title: Healing our wounded image as a necessary purification for effective ministry
Talk by: Archbishop William Goh
Commencing with Rosary,Praise and Worship, Mass and Healing service.
Many of us are seeking for happiness in life. What is the secret of happiness? Is it dependent on wealth, power and status? The truth is that by pursuing these things we have caused much pain to ourselves and hurt others in the process. We become insecure of ourselves. The real problem is that we suffer a low self image and a lack of consciousness of our true identity and calling. As a result, we often transfer wounds even in serving the church. Unconsciously, we seek the same security only that it is spiritual power, glory and recognition like the scribes and Pharisees. Hence the path to integrity is by reclaiming our sonship in Christ with the healing grace of the Holy Spirit. In this way by living the gospel life of love and service reflecting his image, we can let go of our futile ambitions and worldly desires and find peace and contentment in God and service.
This is a 4-day, stay-in retreat conducted by Rev. Fr. Gino Henriques, CSsR.
