Revised Proposal for the Celebration of “The Year of Priestly Vocations 2009-2010” to the Diocese of Hong Kong

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few, pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”(Lk 10:2) Jesus’ appeal for “Prayer for Vocations” is a crucial way in resolving vocations crisis in this present time. Vocation is a gift from God; it is Jesus who has chosen us not that we have chosen him (Jn 15:16). The Diocesan Vocation Commission (DVC) therefore would recommend all Parishes in H.K. to emphasize “Prayer for Vocations” as a “Top Priority” above all other activities to be scheduled for “The Year of Priestly Vocations 2009-2010”.

司鐸聖召年活動建議 – 修訂本

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

『莊稼多而工人少,所以你們應當求莊稼的主人,派遣工人來,收割他的莊稼。』(路10:2)耶穌這個『為聖召祈禱』的呼籲,正好是面對今天香港教會內聖召危機的方法。聖召是天主的恩賜,正如耶穌說是衪揀選了我們而不是我們揀選了衪!(若15:16)。因此聖召委員會建議各堂區在籌備2009-201司鐸聖召年的活動時,應把『為聖召祈禱』放在首位,並竭力鼓勵教友為此意向誠心向天父祈求。

God’s Wings

Monday, October 19th, 2009

After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno’s damage. One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he gently struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mother’s wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast…because she had been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.

‘He will cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you will find refuge.’
(Psalm 91:4)

默想(十八) – 祈禱的重量

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

一位窮寡婦以祈禱代替錢向食物店主乞求一點食物。店主說:『你的祈禱有多重?』他以諷刺的態度把寡婦的祈禱文放在磅上,隨手放上一條麫包,磅完全不動,他再放上一盒奶,那磅也不動!店主氣憤地把那些食物免費給了寡婦!

原來那個榜是壞了!

生活聖言

耶穌對他們說:「你們中間誰有一個朋友,半夜去他那裡,給他說:朋友,借給我三個餅罷!  因為我的朋友行路到了我這裡,我沒有什麼可以款待他。那人從裡面回答說:不要煩擾我了!門已經關上,我的孩子們同我一起在床上,我不能起來給你。  我告訴你們:他縱然不為了他是朋友的原故,而起來給他,也要因他恬不知恥地切求而起來,給他所需要的一切。
所以,我告訴你們:你們求,必要給你們;你們找,必要找著;你們敲,必要給你們開。因為凡求的,就必得到;找的,就必找到;敲的,就必給他開。你們中間那有為父親的,兒子向他求餅,反而給他石頭呢?或是求魚,反將蛇當魚給他呢?  或者求雞蛋,反將蝎子給他呢?  你們縱然不善,尚且知道把好東西給你們的兒女,何況在天之父,有不更將聖神賜與求他的人嗎?」         (路11:5-13)

默想(十七) – 勇往向前

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

記者訪問一隊探險隊準備攀登馬特峰,有的答說:『會盡全力』,有的說:『我將全力以赴』或『盡己所能』……結果只有那個說『我要登上馬持峰』的青年成功地抵達終點!
