“Many people who were
away from the Church are coming back...”
thank God for blessing my priestly vocation and, especially, for
giving me an opportunity to visit Naju, Korea.
September 1996, Julia was scheduled to visit Sarikei, which is a
small city in the Diocese of Sibu in Sarawakm, Malaysia, to spread
the Blessed Mother’s messages.
Her visit could not be officially publicized because Malaysia
is an Islamic country. However,
more than 3,000 people came to see and hear Julia at Sacred Heart
Cathedral on September 17. Before
hearing Julia’s testimony, a Mass was concelebrated with His
Excellency Dominic Su, the Bishop of Sibu, and several other
priests. After this event, very many Catholics who had been away from
the Church came back and made their confessions.
Usually, most of those who come to church are elderly people,
but, during Julia’s visit, there were so many young people also.
them were those who had not made their confessions for more than 10
years; in one case, even for 40 years.
They repented their sins and came back to God.
after Julia left Sibu, people are making more frequent confessions
and attending Mass more fervently.
The number of people who attend not only Sunday Masses but
also weekday Masses has increased. I am thankful to God for so many conversions occurring after
hearing the Blessed Mother’s messages through Julia.
