Catholic Church in Singapore has reversed its earlier decision to resume Masses

I refer to the online news that the Catholic Church in Singapore has reversed its earlier decision to resume Masses.

I was very, very angry to read that Grace Fu and Gan Kim Yong have encouraged the Catholic Church to “resume their activities provided necessary precautionary measures are taken”.

I quote, “As responsible Catholics, we shouldn’t do anything that might further burden the alearly strained healthcare system”. “I know that it is a decision that will not please all but as Head of the Catholic Church in Singapore, I have to decide for the common good”- Archbishop of the Singapore Catholic Church William Goh.

The above paragraph explains without a shadow of doubt William Goh’s decision to further suspense masses. Mosques in Singapore are closed for a week to enable deep cleaning to be carried out too. Even Saudi Arabia has stopped umrah pilgrimage. Last but not least, George Yeo was quoted as saying that social distancing is key to prevent the further spreading of Covid-19.

All the above mentioned and more run completely contrary to what pap cabinet ministers Grace Fu and Gan Kim Yong’s advices to the Catholic Church in Singapore to resume their activities provided all necessary precautionary measures are taken hot air.

Although life must continue even in the face of Covid-19 pandemic, still, to make light of people’s health and safety with reckless and irresponsible advice, especially one given by non others than pap cabinet ministers must be loudly called out and publicly shame! I strongly feel that if those fat taxes earning pap ministars have any sense of shame and humility and after reflecting on what they have advised the Catholic Church, they must apologise publicly without further delay.

In this time of a potentially fatal pandemic, each and every one of us must be ever mindful to exercise personal and social responsibility of the highest level. As for elders, leaders, captains of industries and very, very importantly, government leaders and ministers, they must never, never give reckless, idiotic and irresponsible advices to junior people who blindly trust them or look up to them, whatever their agendas maybe. Think.

  • Great Asia:

    The Chinese started to shift away from the practice of divine worship 2500 years ago, and the Indians did it much earlier than the Chinese, probably a few centuries earlier.

    So far divine worship is one of the major causes of the spread of the coronavirus. People can’t think, this is the problem.

    Ha ha ha!

    Fatality rate for old people is high.

    This virus could help the PAP fat cats to save on investment on the pioneer generation.

    Don’t forget that everything is statistics for the PAP fat cats.

  • A pandemic:

    WHO declared a pandemic. Italy is in total lockdown, USA has declared a state of national emergency, and many countries have stepped up their guard. EPL, NBA have suspended & postponed their games because some team members tested positive. We already have so many infected cases & it is also most appropriate to suspend close proximity social and religious group gatherings. Do the right thing. Covid-19 is dangerous. The mind that does not mind about the virus is totally out of his/her mind & could already be the walking virus in our midst.

    What is the urgency of resuming masses? I thought prayer is from the heart! Or was it people working in the churches got nothing to do, they needed company?

    I think they want to pray for the virus to go away, asap!

  • PAPVID-20:

    One is the Minister for Culture, Community and Youth.

    One is the Minister for Health.

    How much are these 2 clowns drawing from singaporeans every year? Unbelievable MILLIONS of dollars!

    Behind the public, encourage the Church to resume activities, then blamed others for being “socially irresponsible” when sh!t happened.

    These 2 are the ones who actually deserve to be called XIA SUAY but did we hear Chan CS calling them that?

    Singaporeans would be digging our own graves if these ministers continue to earn their millions again after the coming GE.

  • Crooked PAP:

    PAP must NOT call for election now.

    We are in an epidemic crisis and politics is the last thing in our minds. !!

    PAP, please listen to the calls by Opposition parties – no election for next 12 months !!

    PAP don’t need any “mandate” from people to deliver what the Govt needs to do for the safety of it’s citizens.

    Singaporeans don’t be fooled by PAP again like how they sentimentalised LKY’s death to win votes in last election.

    The Catholic Church of Singapore truly deserves high respect for her decisive execution of immense Wisdom & Compassion, the two essential wings of any trustworthy & useful religion beneficial to humankind. Her exemplary action should also be worthy of praise by WHO.

    God and Jesus IS in your HEART if you sincerely and TRULY seek HIM…

    attending Mass and church services is a gathering of the Faithful to share and GOSSIP at times about what Life is all about the Good & the Bad…

    Praising and Receiving Jesus… is HYPOCRITICAL if you accept the Evil of a system that Destroys unborn babies and the Families of those who Disagree with the Evil Ways & Lies of those In POWER!!!

  • COVID-19: Safe to avoid crowd.:

    Human is human; God is God; Virus is Virus. Do get influence by the ignorance of people. Do not try to be a hero to combat the virus, the lesson learned from Shincheonji Church of Jesus is a good example of Christians failed to attempt to combat the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. If they still ignorance of believing that the blessing from GOD can help them to combat the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, seriously nobody can really help when the COVID-19 is spreading like wildfire.

    For goodness sake, it is better to play safe than risk your life to contact COVID-19. Everyone has their responsibility to take care of their own safety and health. If you are faithful then you can always pray at home, the effect from the blessing is the same.

  • Time 2 stay home and meditate!:

    If there is no risk, then why The World Health Organisation (WHO) said it was raising its assessment of the global risk to “very high” from “high”.

    The latest WHO figures indicate that more than 85,000 people have been infected, with 2,835 deaths in China and dozens more in other parts of the world. Maybe it is still not serious enough to be more cautious.

    Why there is so many controversial? By resume masses, does it mean that we are fine to gather in a group? Why not be more mindful, and stay home to meditate or pray to avoid any unnecessary health risk?

  • Religion is about wisdom !!!:

    Religion is all about wisdom then follow by faith. If the practitioner cannot differentiate the difference, then I guess it will be the blind lead by the blind.

    According to Deuteronomy 28, the Lord said “Now it shall be, if you diligently listen to and obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all of His commandments which I am commanding you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you pay attention to the voice of the Lord your God.” So do not worry about your presence at the masses, the Lord sense your presence.

    Judging the present situation of COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, we are supposed to make the sound judgement to take care of ourself, be mindful and have the good self-awareness before we worship him. We should not put ourselves and family members at risk in a public gathering.

    @Steven; it was only a reminder for readers to “Think”, because narratives from the PAP required everyone to think.

    See if you can understand these, if you don’t think;

    Inside 200M is not within 200M radius of the polling station!

    An Indian was selected as an elected Malay President.

    GRC is to ensure minority race representation in Parliament, but only during election period.

    Wear mask only after you kenna Covid-19.

    “Sufficient” is “limited” stock.

    Don’t follow what others are doing in hoarding essential items, it is xie suey, even the whole world is doing it.

  • Follow the God!:

    Churches also got their high monthly expenses to cover. Our gov understood that so cannot stop their mass gathering for too long otherwise they suffer great lost like any retail businesses. No members go to church means no donation so no lobang. Pastors, fathers, leaders, admin, accts workers all need to be paid good salary, benefits and bonuses. Some smart leaders already “Gieng” conducting mass at their own HDB flat and perhaps legalise collections of $$$ in order to support their own luxury expenses and buy new car. For decades PAP’s HDB/MND/SPF still don’t have any law to stop such activities in HDB flats.

  • Criminalize bootlicking:

    in a virus pademic where lives of citizens r at stake, bootlicking, wayanging, greed n any violation of sworn oath should be criminalized. Many citizens r now fed with the well massaged news assisted by compliant bureaucrats n bootlicking both willing n power threatened, mass media service sector n the loss of trust on the legalization of cmriminahl acts re conflict of interests appointments, irresponsible rampant import of foreigners with zero controlling criteria n free education for foreign children at the expence of citizens so much sio that the govt chose to resolve their irresponsibiity by fooling the citizens not to encourage their chikdren to aspire for university education assisted by bootlicking mass media to substantuate with cases of a dropout n a gangster becoming millionaires with less than half truth while the hard truth is that the irresponisble free education programme of foreign students
    HM,as overstretched the capacity of the university n due to their well shielded traitorous policy of placing self interests including displacing citizens with gratefuk foreigners from cradle to grave by CBs n bootlickers to penalized truth n glorifying fakes with the ministers empowered with prosecuting n judgement on adverse criticism n comments as fake news n info without supporting evidence that the adverse clritucisim r fake. Single sutid demand of evidence is made impossible by the CBs n bootlickers. The blatant criminalized twisting interpretation of accountability to be not applicable to govt citizen as they claimed accountability is the business of children to parents.

    The silence of relevant medical professional offer ssionals on the pandemic is indeed frightening! What happens to them, gagged just in case the truth is revealed. How arecthese medical professionals expected to justify the public $$ spent on them if they r not talking with their professional knowledge. We have seen bootlickers justify crimes by bizzard legalizing illegality such as conflict of interefsrs in public appts like the Attorney General n Audiror General, the hilarious definition of accountability to justify their fear of their accountability of their policy n action.

    Webr a snall nation with a small population. ,pap may feel that citizens r dispensible as humkachan stupidus sin claimed arrogantly he has no problem to import foreigners to displace citizens from their jobs n in effect also from education institution.

    IS THIS THE TYPE OF GOVT SINGAPOREANS WANT COSTING BILLIONS ACH YEAR, ALMOST 10 to 1000 times more than the govt of ither nations including US, EU, Japan, Korea etc,…? Think before u go to the polls?
