National Day Message 2018

August 8th, 2018|Archbishop, Current Events, latest, Messages|

Today, we celebrate Singapore’s 53rd National Day. To celebrate National Day is to celebrate nation-building, which is the work and participation of every citizen. How often do we take our nation for granted, just as many of us take our family for granted, and Church as well! We fail to realize that the nation, our family and our Church are what they are today because countless individuals and communities, past and present, have poured their sweat, blood and tears into building these institutions. Without each individual’s contribution, big and small, from every area of life, expertise and interest, our nation would not be so prosperous, efficient, happy, peaceful and progressive.

National Day Message 2017

This is a very divisive world we live in. There is so much disagreement on all fronts - economic, political, religious, moral, ethical and social. We have extreme religious fundamentalism at one end, and hostile secularism at the other.
