AAE Day 1 - Ending the day with Mama Mary and Jesus
What a beautiful way to end our first day of the Asian Australian Encounter with Mama Mary by praying the Rosary and venerating Jesus in the Holy Eucharist.
The Rosary was lead by the Taiwan group praying for communities of Australia, Philippines, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam and Japan and was done in different languages.
As the day was about to end, it got more intense as Jesus didn’t allow it to end without him.
As we prepared for the adoration of the Holy Eucharist, Theresa De Silva a disciple from Singapore, happily shared her experience on how Jesus got into her empty boat one day and pushed her a little further from the shore. She was just a simple Singaporian back then who keeps on chasing what a normal Singaporian chase after in life. Little by little she got to know who Jesus was and it started to become more uncomfortable when Jesus started to touch her boat when He opened her eyes to see the realities of Singapore. She was pushed away from her comfort zone not because she was ready but because Jesus knows that she will still be okay after she is being pushed a little further.
Finally, we ended the day in God’s embrace as we adore Jesus in Holy Eucharist. Little as He is, He lovingly told us to fear not, push our boat a little and lower our down our nets for a catch.
Here are some pictures of the experience:
