LET US LIFT UP OUR VOICES IN SUPPLICATION.....

YESTERDAY, I was deluged with furtive requests to pass on the news that Fr OC Lim was in the IJM undergoing surgery.

Father O C Lim, SJ is a tireless campaigner against the ISA. He was heavily criticised for using the pulpit to air his views on policies and practices that went against Human Rights.

He used his holy office to fight the forces who incarcerated the then Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

He supported and was present at most of our NO TO ISA candlelight vigils. He was present at most of the court sessions in support of Raja Petra.

JUST GOT THIS MESSAGE: Message just received from IJM at 8:45am. Fr O C Lim is going in for surgery now. He sends his warmest regards and thanks all for their prayers.
Please storm heaven with prayers because Father is critically ill.....Blessed Sacrament is now exposed at SFX for prayers.

Let's do that today....storm heaven with prayers for Father O C Lim.

MAY God's healing power, touch Fr OC Lim and heal him, and may the almighty GOD shower him with strength and love. I had the privilege to work for him at the Catholic Research Center from 1991-1993. Indeed he is a wonderful servant of the lord.

God Bless You too Mr Bernard. See you soon at the WHARF...

Yes, let's pray for a speedy recovery for Father Lim ... thanks for the heads up, Uncle Bernard. And you, Duke and Hawkeye too, keep well in MU.

Did the good Lord pick the wrong man to undergo surgery? He should be the owner of that grand mansion with a RM25million tag value to lie on the operation table. Divine justice works in strange ways.

Just a little update that I received via SMS : "Surgery successful. Next 24hrs crucial Pls continue prayers. No visitors yet. Many thanks for your concern." From the family.

We are proud to have Fr OC Lim as one of our parish priests of SFX.
