A Courtesy Call

On 25th July we, Archbishop Julian Leow, Archbishop Joseph Marino (Nuncio), Fr Vjeko, Tan Sri Chan Choon Tak, Fr. George Harrison and I had the privilege of having an audience with Yang Di-Pertuan Besar of Negeri Sembilan, Yang Amat Mulia Tuanku Muhriz ibni Almarhum Tuanku Munawir.

A visit that was both cordial and warm where we exchanged brief insights on some moral issues that were of interest to both Islam and Christianity. Amidst that, upon His Majesty’s request a little information on the history of the Catholic Church was given to Tuanku.

Being a courtesy visit much of the morning meet went along a lighter vein with unassuming laughter in the room. It was truly an environment that served as a platform of initiative in establishing friendship and bond with the head of state.

Archbishop Julian Leow and Fr George handed His Majesty souvenirs as well. The occasion signaled a climate of hope for better times ahead in the light of ushering in of Pakatan Harapan and the call of Pope Francis to reach out to all.

Rev. Fr. Xavier Andrew
