I just came back from praying and keeping watch with the Lord Jesus in the Garden.
First off, here's the place of adoration, the Garden Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima, being prepared before the Mass began.
They were Fr. Mark, our assistant parish priest and the main celebrant, Fr. Marshall, our parish priest, Fr. Ross, the Australian Air Force Chaplain and Fr. Fabian Dicom, Chancellor of the Diocese of Penang who is currently on his sabbatical and Fr. Decroix, MEP who is currently retired.
Fr. Mark, as the main celebrant, had the honour of performing this act of humility and self abasement in imitation of the example of the Lord Jesus this year.
12 men, from all walks of life in the parish were chosen for this event.
Censing the gifts.
Hic est enim calix Sanguinis Mei.
Ecce Agnus Dei.
Throughout the whole time, I was impressed by the silence that engulfed the place even though there were many people present. I could hear the crickets chirping. I was wonderfully conducive to prayer.
