assumption“As Catholics, we obtain our ‘passport’ when we are baptized, but what about our visa?”

This was the interesting question Fr Gerard Theraviam asked in his homily during the Feast of the Assumption Eucharistic Celebration on 14 August 2016 at the Church of the Assumption, Penang.

According to Fr Gerard, our visa lies in the gospel reading of today, where Elizabeth said, “Blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled”, as well as in the vigil gospel reading that mentions “happy are those who hear the Word of God and keep it.” “Do you believe in the promise of God?
