The whole peninsula is undoubtedly overjoyed on hearing about this appointment. Everyone is in a joyous, happy mood. It is the first time in Malaysian Catholic history that an archbishop has been chosen as a cardinal.

Dear Editor,
Yaay! Hip Hip Hurray! Alleluia! Syabas! Congratulations! (I am running out of exclamations) dear Cardinal-designate Archbishop Emeritus Soter Fernandez.

The whole peninsula is undoubtedly overjoyed on hearing about this appointment. Everyone is in a joyous, happy mood.

It is the first time in Malaysian Catholic history that an archbishop has been chosen as a cardinal.

I still can’t believe it (somebody please pinch me!). Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine a Malaysian would be made a cardinal. At least, I didn’t think I would live to see the day.

May this inspire our young men to answer God’s call and pursue life as a priest.

Parents, nudge your sons to follow in the footsteps of our cardinal elect.

Uncles and aunties, encourage your nephews to work in the Lord’s vineyard.

This is my personal prayer for Cardinaldesignate Archbishop Emeritus Soter, “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you.” 3 John 2.
