As September marks the Feast of Our Lady of Good Health at Kampung Pandan, the first Friday Holy Hour was held in a special and prayerful manner by Sr Angelin Gnanapragasam, FMDM. This First Friday Holy Hour was different from the previous ones as no one was able to be physically present due to the decision to hold only an online feast celebration.

The Holy Hour began at 8.30pm with the exposition of Blessed Sacrament by parish administrator Fr Edwin Peter. It was a moment of renewing and strengthening of our faith, believing that our risen Lord is truly  present in the host as we start to adore and worship Him, together, as His children. Prayer is the only channel for us to communicate and express ourselves in front of our Creator.

After a brief silence, Sr Angelin invited the congregation to intercede in prayer with her for healing of the body and soul. It was a precious and sacred moment of opening up our wounds and brokenness before Jesus, for Him to come in and heal us spiritually and emotionally.

The session continued with the proclamation of the gospel according to St Mark and reflection on the delivered Word of God through re flective prayer which was projected on the screen. The congregation was once again invited for personal silent prayer as well as to acknowledge the presence of our Saviour and surrender unto Him all our needs and desires.

Fr Edwin led the benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and the Holy Hour concluded with the final prayer.

For many of those who followed the holy hour from their homes, it was a deeply spiritual experience that allowed them to embrace a bit more of  their inner healing journey. The theme for the day was By His Wounds we have been Healed.
