As we reflect on the Baptism of our Lord in the Jordan River and the grace and truth of the sacrament of Baptism, we would like to bring to light a recent Baptism in the Jordan.
As part of our commitment to development, we have been involved with different international organizations and individuals in Asia. In the past two years, thanks to the leadership of Ms. Jean Sung, some of our professors have imparted academic conferences for philanthropists both in Hong Kong and in Manila, regarding the Shroud of Turin (by Fr. Andrew Dalton, L.C.) and the Moral Dimension of Education (by Fr. Alex Yeung, L.C.). Ms. Sung has also been active collaborating with the Patron´s of the Arts in the Vatican Museums, the Pontifical Institute Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center and the Papal Foundation.
Recently, Ms. Sung made a beautiful decision to enter into the Catholic Church through the grace of Baptism. She herself explains, “It is a conscious decision as an adult to be baptized. To commit and to belong to God and Jesus. To lead me and to guide me in practicing a Catholic life as Jesus has shown us with his love and his life…. it is no coincidence that Fathers Juan Solana and Thomas Montanaro as well as other Legionary of Christ Fathers came into my life. It is the way and the light. Thanks be to God.”
As an academic community we welcome Jean Mary Magdalene Sung into our Catholic family, thank her for her conscious decision and her witness to the faith of Christ, and her commitment to spreading the gospel and the grace of Baptism to the ends of the world.
