One of my most impactful encounters with the late Cardinal Cornelius Sim was in 2002 during my seminary formation in St. Peter College, Sarawak. Upon the completion of my formation, I requested for an extension of two years for priestly discernment in a parish. Nearing the end of the two years, I remained undecided and contemplated of extending for another year or so. He stared hard at me, smiled, and nodded.
I explained to him that one of my greatest concerns was that of my academic limitations where I may be more of a liability than an asset to the parish. Looking straight into my eyes, with a subtle smile, he said “Jump into the water like Peter!” What!!! But from the look of his endearing and assuring eyes I sensed that it was as if the Lord Jesus Himself was saying that to me.
The rest is history.
