Malaysian archbishop urges lawyers to pursue justice

Malaysian Archbishop Julian Leow Beng Kim of Kuala Lumpur has urged Catholic lawyers to pursue justice in a "fair and meek manner in the midst of extreme issues facing the country."

He said he used the term "meek" to mean "moderate," as opposed to being timid or soft, the Malaysian Insider reported.

Archbishop Leow told the lawyers Jan. 16 during the annual Red Mass that the Bible explained meek as being in the middle, where one was not extremely angry but neither uncaring.

About 70 attorneys attended the Mass, held in Kuala Lumpur's St. Joseph's Church.

The Red Mass is named after the garments of the celebrant and it is traditionally offered to those involved in the administration of justice, praying for guidance from the Holy Spirit.
