Rosary Procession Blessed with Rain

Showers of blessing literally rained down on parishioners as they made their way around the church for the rosary procession on Thursday 31 May – the feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Umbrellas sprouted among the crowd of about 500 people as the steady drizzle did not deter their bid to show their love and faith in Mother Mary. The candle-lit procession began in front of the grotto, soon after the 7 pm Mass. It marked the culmination of the May month of the rosary where individual BECs had rosary gatherings in homes in their areas to praise and honour Mary. The beautifully-decorated carriage bearing the statue of Mary, standing in a bed of pink, white and red roses, was carried by members of the various church groups. The decades of the rosary were recited in English, Bahasa, Mandarin and Tamil.

SIC Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong CDD and Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng CDD led the procession in joyfully reciting the rosary despite the wet conditions. Also joining in were former parish priests Fr Francis Ng CDD and Fr Lucas Ng CDD. In his homily at the Mass, Fr Lawrence challenged us to develop a keen sense of God in our lives, just like Mary, who went on an arduous journey to visit her pregnant cousin Elizabeth. He said we should try to follow Mary’s example to serve God humbly and with love. Instead many of us, he said, would come up with all sorts of reasons and excuses to avoid serving God and the community. He called for a change in attitude among parishioners, and to have love in our hearts.
