Sh a l o m , brothers and sisters in Christ!

I’m Vivianna Nicholas (pic) and have recently joined the Melaka- Johor Diocese Youth Ministry. I started my journey serving in God’s kingdom when I was nine years old and was baptised in the Church of St Theresa Masai, Johor.

I have served in my parish as a lector and warden. As time went by, I became actively involved at the diocese level and, by then, I was really in love with the idea of serving in God’s kingdom. “Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received (1 Peter 4:10)” and because of that, I did not waste any of the gifts that God gave me and I will use them to help others, especially the youth and to become firm in my own faith.

Challenges in youth life nowadays are really tough and if the youth themselves are not eager to seek God’s grace, they might fall and fail in their faith. My hope for our youth is that more of them will respond to God’s call, just as Mother Mary answered God’s call without any hesitation.

Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time: That woman is Ourselves

Mark calls her “a Greek” but Matthew uses the ancient name “Canaanite,” a reference to the original inhabitants of the Holy Land, who were conquered by the Israelites some twelve centuries before the time of Jesus. Matthew recognises that this encounter between the woman from the area of Tyre and Sidon and Jesus is about an outsider “wanting in.” So he heightens the drama by identifying her as a member of that group of pagans who were Israel’s first enemies (after the Egyptians, of course).
