“We are invited to unite in prayer, fasting and works of charity with humanity across the world on 14 May 2020"

Rev. Fathers, Religious Brothers and Sisters, Seminarians, ISKB Community, Chairpersons and members of  TPK, MPP, MPM, KWK, KBK, KKD, Catechists Committee, beloved brothers and sisters in Christ.

In the spirit of unity and fidelity to Pope Francis, let us, the members of the Catholic Church of Keningau  Diocese, heed his call and participate in thisglobal Prayers, Fasting and Works of Charity so that humanity can be immediately released from the COVID-19 pandemic.

a) We pray not just for the sake of asking but to express our faith in God and to acknowledge that we come from Him and will go back to Him. By praying, we express our gratitude that God continuously wants to participate, protect and save humanity.  Praying is communicating with God.

b) We fast to express our faith that our life’s source is God. By fasting, we want to form an attitude  that  is  not  bound  and  enslaved  to  material  things,  that  is  selfless  and  ready  to sacrifice for each other.

c) We do works of charity to express solidarity with humanity and God’s Creation, especially to those who need our help and attention.

Brothers and sisters, through our Praying, Fasting and performing Works of Charity, may we experience life in Unity, Fidelity and Harmony with God our Creator, with each other and with God’s Creation and be released from the COVID-19 pandemic.  As individuals, with our family or with our KKD, let us heed this call by Pope Francis.

In conjunction with the Month of Rosary in May, let us call upon Mother Mary to intercede for us.

+Bishop Datuk Cornelius Piong
