This evening we had a mass
Every pilgrim who had been in Terengganu came
It was truly lovely that we had all come to celebrate with
Fr Cornelius, young and newly ordained on 9 August 2016.
He had been a seminarian and had taken part in a retreat by Fr Phillips
So it was apt that he was able to share more with us
I liked Fr Cornelius’ homily that tied in so well with the Memorial of St John Chrysostom
Bishop and Doctor of the Church who spoke the truth
With such eloquence and in such easy to understand terms
Fr Cornelius drew several parallels with the late priest and the saint for today
It moved us no end and it touched us deeply
St Paul’s letter to us all about being a part of the Body of Christ
Should move us to consider imitating the late priest
He – Fr Phillips – was all out to put his heart and soul in his work
He was ready to suffer like St John Chrysostom
Can we ask for more? Dare we seek to know more?
