Message from Cardinal Bishop Suharyo, Voxian Must Be Bright

AS an expression of gratitude for God’s inclusion, Vox Populi Institute Indonesia (Vox Point Indonesia) celebrated its 7th anniversary with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist at PGAK Samadi Pastoral Center, Jakarta, Saturday (18/3).

The Eucharistic celebration which was attended by administrators and members of Vox Point Indonesia was offered in concelebration with the main celebrant Mgr Ignatius Cardinal Suharyo accompanied by two celebrants Pastor Rofinus Neto Wuli, Pr and Pastor Yustinus Ardianto, Pr.

In his homily, Cardinal Suharyo wished the extended Voxian family a happy 7th birthday wherever they are and wished them proficiat for the results that have been achieved.

“Thank you for the presence of the Voxian extended family in the midst of the Catholic church in Indonesia. Hopefully this will become an institution that is increasingly becoming a conscience in the midst of our nation and country,” said Cardinal Suharyo.

Quoting the Gospel reading of John 9:1-41, Cardinal Suharyo said that the Gospel reading invites all to continue to grow in faith in Jesus. The growth of faith is very dynamic as experienced by a blind man and healed by Jesus.

“The Voxians must personalize the words of the Apostle Paul that Voxians wherever, whoever, in whatever role must be a light. In accordance with Vox Point Indonesia’s mission to fight for the values ​​of truth, justice and peace which are guided by Pancasila, the 1945 Constitution, the Republic of Indonesia and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika,” said Cardinal Suharyo.

Cardinal Suharyo also highlighted new words circulating in the mass media or social media and whose meaning has changed, such as the word bohir, whose real meaning is someone who builds. But now the meaning of bohir according to the language of KWI’s pastoral notes; bohir is an affair between state and business. “The business is bohir, those who are born become rulers, so those who are born have a debt of gratitude to those who are bohirin,” he said.

Apart from the word bohir, Cardinal also highlighted changes in meaning such as cukong. The word can be interpreted as manipulation in the economic field and the emergence of the word mafia which is the opposite of mutual cooperation, in which the meaning of mafia is the affair of all elements whose goal is to achieve prosperity for the mafia.

“Therefore, don’t be surprised if there is a judicial mafia, a beef mafia. If the meaning changes, let alone governance, governance, living together in this country. For this reason, Vox Point must be present to fight for truth, justice and peace,” hoped the Jakarta Archbishop. That.

In line with Cardinal Bishop Suharyo, Chairperson of the Vox Point Indonesia National Leadership Council, Yohanes Handojo Budhisedjati, hopes that Vox Point will continue to work and must remain objective in guarding the four basic consensuses of our country, namely Pancasila, the 1945 Constitution, the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika.

“We will continue to maintain our diversity and diversity, we must continue to become a nation that is united, sovereign, towards justice and prosperity,” said Yohanes Handojo.

For this reason, Handojo said that in the next general election, we must be able to choose the best leader who can bring the nation to greater glory and glory. (RO/O-2)
