KUALA LUMPUR: The launching of the Extra ordinary Missionary Year on the Solemnity of the Epiphany in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei, with theUniversal theme Baptised and Sent .The Church of Christ On Mission in the World awakes in us the call of Our LordJesus Christ to “go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News toall creation” (Mk 16:15).It is, perhaps, not an under statement to say that, up till now, this passage from the Gospel of St Mark has remained head knowledge to most Christians.

The Good News is explained inthe Christian Community Bible as “the seed that will be planted in the world and will flourish in proper time, in all the fields of human activity ....

The Gospel is to be proclaimed to all creation in all activities and acts of thosewho have been renewed by Baptism.”In his homily for the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord, Fr Simon Lau, Assistant Parish Priest of the Church of theSacred Heart of Jesus, gave an insightinto the link between the Baptism ofJesus and His Mission of bringing theGood News to the world.

“The voice of the Father, ‘You are MySon, the Beloved’ affirms and confirmsthe identity of Jesus as the Son of God.Knowing who He was helped Jesusduring His temptation in the wildernessand subsequent mission. Likewise, weare invited to affirm our identity as baptised Catholics by knowing who we are,what we can do, and not to be affectedby what others say and think of us.

”As parishioners eagerly collectedtheir Missionary Year Epiphany Star,we look forward to an exciting year tolive the grace of our Baptism, sent onMission to be the Eyes, Ears, Mouth piece, Hands and Feet of Jesus. Hence forth, our BECs and Ministries willhave opportunities to be like the Star ofJesus, leading men to God, and transforming church life and pastoral care.--Parish of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,Kuala Lumpur
