PENANG:
Twenty-five youths from the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary were confirmed by the parish priest, Fr Dominic Santhiyagu, and assistant parish priest, Fr Konstend Gnanapragasam, last month. The youth had journeyed through online classes and virtual camp in preparation for this special day.

In his homily, Fr Dom asked the youths, “What is your mission?” He said, “You have a mission, to be on track, look for a guide to direct you towards Christ”.

He then told the story of a young girl who lost her earring. Having searched around and not finding it, she sought the help of her mum. Her mother began looking for it and found it. The girl was delighted but curious that her mum had managed to find it. Her mum responded that the earring was a costly jewel that she had invested in and so she was determined to find it.

Fr.Dom reminded them that we all need guides to lead us to Christ and advised them to have a conviction and be resolute.

He also added that there are three lessons to be learned today from the Gospel when the crowd asked John, “What must we do?” He asked the youth to do the following:

Be charitable – if you do not have the means to provide in cash, be charitable in word and deed.

Be content with what you have and with who you are — you are God’s creation and He has made you for a purpose. Do not choose to be somebody you are not. Accept yourself as you are and keep growing.

Be faithful to God in all that you do. At the end of the Mass, Fr Dom invited the confirmands to journey with him for the next six months. He said it is imperative that we journey as a community – to support each other and to walk in our mission. -- nbvmscic.org
