I am saddened by the news of Fr William Lim, parish priest of the Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who suffered a heart attack on the morning of Jan 3 while jogging. My heartfelt sympathy and prayers go out to the family and parishioners.
A number of priests have passed on due to heart attacks and cancers at a relatively young age. With the start of the new year, priests, Religious brothers and nuns should undergo a full medical check-up to ensure their well being to carry out God’s work in the Catholic community.
The benefits of a full health check will safeguard the individual, and any medical issues can be arrested and appropriate measures taken to give God’s servants a healthy lifestyle. n
