New Birth in Christ

Saigon – The Servants of Charity do a different apostolate each weekend. On second Sundays they help the aged, some of whom are affected with HIV, by celebrating Mass with the parish priest and doing little things for them after Mass. Some of them are Catholic and some are not, but even the non-Catholics participate in the pious practices. Fr. Jerin had his first opportunity to celebrate the sacrament of Baptism in Vietnam. A non–Catholic lady in that house wanted to become a daughter of Christ. With the permission of the parish priest, Fr. Jerin baptized her on Aug 18, 2012. She was given the name ‘MARIA’. Many of these elderly people want to die in Christ. Thank God that He continues to drag their souls to Him.
