In his closing words, Bishop Bernard Paul (pic) thanked the organising team especially the Semenanjung cluster. He reminded all friends of the poor not to let the three days be wasted because what we put in is what we reap.

“There is a lot of talk on disparities and gaps. The gaps are becoming more defined and more pronounced. The day the nations opened up for globalisation, open market economy and capitalism, the richer became richer, and the poorer became poorer.

“The temptation is to document, to record, to compile and to post on facebook. The poor becomes exhibits. They look good for our presentations, for our summits and assemblies. This is one of the temptations that CM has to watch out for.

“The second temptation is to think that others will do it. We feel that there are so many of us out there, so many welfare and charitable agencies, so many NGOs and faith-based organisations. We are tempted to farm out the work, to be calculative in our giving, or pretend to be busy, or pass by and hope someone else will do what is needed.

“The third temptation is to bicker, to compete and to strive to outdo each other instead of working together. A divided leadership and a disunited community waste energy, and is closed to new ideas. It becomes too distracted to attend to the plight of the needy. We must work together because where there is unity, there is love and there is God.

“We are here. All of us are little larvae and pupae. To become what we can be, be ready to struggle, be ready to fight the good fight and be ready to be patient with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Compare yourself with where you were last year and where you have arrived today.

A journey of a thousand miles begins today with a single. first step. Keep up the good work. Glorify the Lord,” concluded Bishop Bernard.
