Star Of David

The past week has been an alarming week for some of us Catholics in Church Of The Holy Spirit and Church of St Francis of Assisi. Our dear favourite Priest, Rev Fr David Thexeira was suddenly taken ill while visiting some church friends in Bankgok while at the Immigration and later blacked out in the Bangkok's hospital. He was later flewn back to Singapore via an air ambulance on 9 December and has since then been warded in Mt Alvernia hospitial now unconscious. Fr David though with a stern look is a wonderful Priest and he's very Christ like in his own gentle ways. I remembered the time when he was Assistant Priest in Church of the Holy Spirit and we had the little children from Primary 2s making their 1st Reconciliation with him. He was so gentle to the children and made them feel so at ease during their confession. Fr David has always been a good Priest who will never say NO to anyone even to strangers. I also remembered clearly when our Holy Spirit Church first had the newly installed stained glasses panels in our main church, Fr David was the one who ran to open doors of the main church to allow the morning mass worshippers to be the first to view the panoramic view of the stained glasses. This simple and selfless gestures of Fr David have left me deep impression of a good and loving shepherd. All we can do right now for Fr David is to continue praying for him and hope for a miracle to happen. Read more about this wonderful STAR OF DAVID
