CMI makes pilgrimage to CDM KKIP

A section of the over 200 faithful taking part in the pilgrimage to the Church of Divine Mercy KKIP, 22 Aug 2018, in conjunction with the CMI Silver Jubilee Celebration.

KKIP, Telipok – Over 200 faithful from Church of Mary Immaculate (CMI) Bukit Padang and Sacred Heart Cathedral (SHC) Karamunsing made a pilgrimage to the Church of the Divine Mercy here on 22 Aug 2018 in conjunction with the CMI silver jubilee (CMISJ) celebration.

The event was organised by the CMISJ committee as part of its activities to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the dedication of the church in October.

Led by Father Paul Lo, SHC rector, the pilgrimage began with Morning Prayer (Lauds) in CMI before proceeding to KKIP in three buses.

Fr Lo briefed them on the meaning of a pilgrimage and told them for any first visit to any holy place, church or shrine, they are allowed to make three requests a) for the people of the place b) for those who have asked them for prayers and c) for their own needs.

And on this pilgrimage there were many first timers since the church was officially blessed and opened by Archbishop John Wong on 21 Oct 2017.

At KKIP Fr Lo presided over the bilingual (Eng/Mand) Mass followed by a potluck fellowship meal.

It concluded with the recitation of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy before the journey home.

A pilgrimage to any holy place or shrine reflects the reality that the People of God are a pilgrim people on their way to their heavenly homeland.

Divine Mercy devotees urged to receive divine mercy from risen Jesus’ heart

The devotees hold aloft the Divine Mercy Images for the blessing, KKIP, 8 Apr 2018.

KKIP, Sepanggar – Divine Mercy devotees were urged to to approach the heart of Jesus who has resurrected, and receive the beautiful gift of God’s mercy.

Father Mitchelly Kiun, who presided the Mass at Divine Mercy Church here on 8 Apr 2018 to mark the Feast of Divine Mercy, spoke to a crowd of over a thousand including local parishioners.

The devotees came from Divine Mercy Church Shah Alam, the Church of the Redeemer Klang, St Mary Topokon, Sacred Heart Cathedral Kota Kinabalu and the local parishioners.

Divine Mercy Sunday, celebrated on the second Sunday of Easter, was instituted by John Paul II in 2000.

In his homily, Fr Kiun highlighted that Thomas “… did not believe that his master has resurrected from death.  He demanded proof and wanted to see the truth.”

Referring to the blood and water which came out from the heart of Jesus, Fr Kiun said, “We are invited to taste this Water of Life, this Water of forgiveness, which is His Divine Mercy to us. He is inviting us as he invited Thomas ‘Put your finger here. Look at my hands. Put your hand into my side. No more disbelief. Believe!’”

He added, “The wounds show that Jesus’ resurrection is real.  It is a sign of God’s love. The wound at His side is our door to taste the forgiveness of God as we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday. The heart of Jesus is a heart filled with mercy.”

In closing his reflection, Fr Kiun stressed the need to believe what Jesus did on the cross. “Don’t turn back, let the old be left behind; we are forgiven and redeemed!”

The celebration included a meditation on the Stations of the Cross in the perimeter of the church, followed by the recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet in the Church.    A procession of Divine Mercy images from the statue of the Divine Mercy to the church preceded the Mass.

Fr Kiun also blessed the Divine Mercy images, held aloft by the faithful.

The Mass concluded with the singing of  the Praises of the Divine Mercy, and veneration of the Divine Mercy Image by those present, followed by a fellowship lunch. – Jenny Liew

Led by Charlie and Catherine Chia of the Chinese unit of the SH Pastoral Care of the Aged Ministry, the group prayed the Divine Mercy chaplet before the huge mural of the Divine Mercy Image painted on the sanctuary wall.

A collection was made for the upkeep of the church and given to David Andrew of the catechetical ministry there. He briefed the visitors on the history of the church.

Later, the group left for their annual lunch (with games) at Wong Kok Restaurant Penampang.

The outing is part of the yearly activities organised by the pastoral care unit.

KKIP Divine Mercy pilgrim experiences mercy at St Peter’s Holy Door Kudat

 

pilgrimage

KUDAT – Below is a personal account from pilgrim Stanley Petrus, chairman of the Divine Mercy Apostolate who led his group from KKIP Church of Divine Mercy on a pilgrimage to the Holy Door of St Peter’s Chuch here on 16 Apr 2016.

The pilgrimage to the Holy Door has been an extraordinary experience for me and I believe it is not a coincidence but God’s will.

There were 72 of us participating in the pilgrimage to St Peter Kudat’s Holy Door.  Speaking for myself, I truly experienced peace in my heart and felt the love of God through His mercy. Before entering the Holy Door, I was of the old-self and worldly. After entering the Holy Door, I felt God’s mercy through the outpouring of His Holy Spirit on me. I experienced God’s Presence through the Divine Mercy of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Now, I feel I am emboldened to go out and  proclaim the mercy of God and to do the works of Mercy during this Year of Mercy. Jesus, I trust in you.

I believe my fellow pilgrims experienced the same mercy of God, if not more.
