SCRIPTURE REFLECTIONS FOR THE DAY:
GROWTH IN SPIRITUAL MATURITY
A truly mature Christian is one who lives in the life of the Spirit, and in the power of the Spirit proclaims the gospel by his words and deeds. And he does this not by himself but in union and communion with his fellow Christians without claiming any credit for himself. His only motive is to bring Christ to all so that they will encounter the Good News. How can we attain this level of spiritual growth?

Title: Finding God in bad times
Talk by Rev. Fr. Andrew Wong
Commencing with Praise and Worship, followed by Mass.
We live in a beautiful world of joy and fulfilment. We also live in a world marred by tragedy and pain. Our God is present to us in both worlds. He does not promise to prevent pain and tragedy; and in our life time, we will experience and encounter pain over and over again. What God does promise is to be with us through the storms of our life and to help us cope and stay focussed. God is faithful and He will never abandon us. In fact, nothing can separate us from the love of God, and so we will never be defeated. But do we turn to Him for the grace and the strength to cope in bad times?
CER #42 runs from October 8-12, 5 days/4 nights. Registration and wait-list are CLOSED! We apologise to those who were unable to secure a place. The next CER (#43) is scheduled for November 12-16, 2014.
