breakfast, we set off for Malacca, following the steps of St Francis
Xavier. We arrived at Malacca yesterday, Dec 5. This was the same date
that St Francis Xavier first came to Malacca 500 years ago. It seems
to be a sign that we have to continue his work of evangelization.
正是500年前St. Francis Xavier首次踏足馬六甲的紀念日,
The first place we visited was St. Francis Xavier Church. We prayed
and sang there.
我們首先來到St. Francis Xavier Church, 並在聖堂內祈禱及頌唱
Then we went to the former political and economical centre of Malacca.
We prayed at a cross that memorized St. Francis Xavier leaving Malacca
We then went to the place where St. Francis Xavier body was buried for
a short period, more than 400 years ago. For years, Fr Yan wished to
celebrate a mass here, and it has now come true.
A local newspaper reporter interviewed Fr Yan after mass. Fr Yan made
a good chance to promote tomorrow's EV concert.
