Archbishop urges Sabahans to pray amid troubled times

KOTA KINABALU: The head of the Catholic Archdiocese, here, urged Sabahans to pray the Rosary amid the pandemic crisis as well as political upheaval in the country.

“The whole world has been devastated and re-set by the Covid-19 pandemic,” Archbishop John Wong said on Aug 15.

“Many people of good will, already distressed by the pandemic, are further troubled by the political upheaval and turmoil in the last months… many are tempted to lose hope for a decent Malaysian future.

“We need to pray. Pray for ourselves, our fellow countrymen, our politicians. Our flesh is weak,” the prelate said, citing the night of Jesus’ betrayal, “when his soul was most troubled as he prepared himself to enter into his passion for our salvation”.

The prelate proposed a simple set of prayers around the rosary.

“Remember, we always pray in the name of Jesus, in communion with all the angels and saints, and above all in the company of Mary the Mother of the Church.”
