Today marks the 3rd day of our 2019 Asian Australian Encounter. The day opened with the animation song written by Fr. James Mctavish entitled Push A Little Bit from the Shore. The community of Quezon City leaded the participants with the actions.
After that, Angellyn Enriquez who’s currently having her Formation Course gave the talk “Push Your Boat on a Deep Water.” She shares about her experience of having Jesus in her boat. She talks about the importance of prayer in everyone’s life because in prayer we don't only talk to God but also God speaks to us. Prayer is concrete because it touches our reality.
Dr. Resti Bautista gave an inspiring testimony about his journey in knowing Jesus and how he's there with him and his family in their journey. He shared that in times of darkness Jesus is our lamp that lights our way. He shared also that all of us can be Christ's healing hands. He stressed also the importance of knowing God and the rest will follow.
The morning ended with the Holy Eucharist organized by the Australian Community. It was presided by Fr. Danielle concelebrated by Fr. Iwao Ikegami, Fr. James Mctavish and Fr. Bong Guinoo. In his homily Fr. Danielle shared about how God transforms our lives and like St. Andrew, whose feast day is today, he invited the community to respond in the call of Jesus and to be happy in loving and serving him.
