Judge Ye Not

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

上主厭惡罪,但祂愛罪人!

.

JUDGE YE NOT

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp–
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake.

I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake.

‘And why is everyone so quiet,
So somber – give me a clue.’
‘Hush, child,’ He said, ‘they’re all in shock.
No one thought they’d be seeing you.’

JUDGE NOT!!

Remember…Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

Every saint has a PAST…
Every sinner has a FUTURE!
Now it’s your turn… Share this poem.

靈修之旅(二)

….

******主!我的力量,我依靠袮!******

“當我感受到耶穌基督被針上十字架所受的痛苦,我想到自己從來只看到自己的困難,沒有想過人人也有自己的問題,我不應只想著自己有多辛苦,而是要看到別人的痛苦去幫助別人。拜苦路之後,讓我覺得自己的負擔也不是那麼重。”

….

******主的居處在我心******

在平日繁忙的生活中,終日為著工作,休息的時間也很少。這次與一眾慕道者朋友放下工作,脫離繁囂的世俗生活,來到大嶼山,沿小路上山前往神樂園,感受天主創造的大自然,整理身心前往天主臨在的地方。到了神樂院,我們開始拜苦路,可親身見證到耶穌的痛苦並為我們而犧牲。與莊神父一起祈禱,使我心靈有著從來沒有的平靜,好像在與天主談話,感覺到天主就在我們身邊。莊神父是一個非常活潑風趣的神父,雖然他過著比我們克苦平凡的生活,但他有著比我們璨爛的笑容。希望當我們回到繁忙的生活中,能依靠信仰感受生活的喜樂。

一張紙一輩子

Friday, March 26th, 2010
早晨! 奉上一張紙有沒有用? 
 
 
 


Very good, very, true, very meaningful !!!

出生一張紙,開始一輩子;
畢業一張紙,奮鬥一輩子;

婚姻一張紙,折磨一輩子;
做官一張紙,鬥爭一輩子;
金錢一張紙,辛苦一輩子;
榮譽一張紙,
虛名一輩子;
看病一張紙,痛苦一輩子;
悼詞一張紙,了結一輩子;
淡化這些紙,明白一輩子;
忘了這些紙,快樂一輩子 !  

是世界好友,如果你願意,
請把這條資訊發給你所有的好朋友


也包括我 ⋯⋯ 看有多少人會回發給你。

當大部分人都在關注你飛得高不高時,
只有少部分人關心你飛得累不累,

這就是 友情。

再忙,也要照顧好自己,
雖不常聯繫,卻一直 惦念。

天涼時記著多穿衣!

世界好 友周快樂!

少喝奶茶、不吃剛烤好的麵包
遠離正在充電的電源

白天多喝水,晚上少喝,
一天不喝多於兩杯的咖啡。

少吃油多的食物,
最佳睡眠為晚上十點至早上六點晚上五點後少吃大餐,
每天喝酒不超過一杯。

不用冷水服膠囊,
睡前半小時服藥忌立刻躺下。

睡眠不足八小時人會變笨,
有午睡習慣的人不易老。

手機電池剩一格時不要打電話,
剩一格時輻射是平時的一千倍。

要用左耳接電話
用右耳會直 接傷害到大腦新概念

一個中心:一切以健康為中心。

兩個基本點

遇事瀟灑一點,
看世糊塗一點。三個忘記
           

忘記年齡,
忘記過去,
忘記恩怨。


四個擁有無論你有多弱或多強,一定要
           
擁有真正愛你的人,
擁有知心的朋
擁有向上的事業,
擁有
溫暖的住所。

五個要
           

要唱,
要跳,
要俏,
要笑,

要苗條。

六個不能
         

不能餓了才吃,
不能
渴了才喝,
不能困了才睡,
不能累了才歇,
不能病了才檢查,
不能老了再後悔。

 

看到了,發給每一個惜的朋 .


 

 

 

聖母經 《 曲:許魏強 》

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

alt : 聖母經 《 曲:許魏強 》

今日是教會慶祝聖母的領報慶日,
如果聖母沒有謙遜地去承行上主的旨意,
願意做天主的母親,
耶穌的救世工程便不可在世上實現,
我們亦得不到永生,
因此,讓我們感謝聖母,
求聖母繼續保守我們的教會,
為世界和平祈禱.

為苦難祈禱

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

為苦難祈禱

「我只願認識基督和他復活的德能,參與他的苦難相似他的死」(斐3:10)

上主召叫我們祈禱,好能從苦難中釋放出來,也好能不再受苦難奴役。我們必須在祈禱中祈求,
才可獲得治癒、解救、勝利,與和平。我們祈求剔除不是天主所意願的苦痛,亦希望天主能幫助我們,接受種種是祂所意願的「苦痛」。
所以,當我們祈求天主免去我們的種種苦難外,我們亦應祈求「參與[基督]的苦難相似他的死」(斐3:10)。
我們甚少用這段教眾人如何分享基督苦難的禱詞;只有那些深深地愛慕基督的人,才有此胸懷接納這段禱文。
為苦難祈禱,愛比一己的意願更為重要。我們必須深愛耶穌,愛得情願跟他一同受苦,而不願獨自享樂。
由於愛,我們認定耶穌比任何悅樂都更為重要,甚至乎視苦難是珍貴的,因為我們可藉此與基督結合。
我們宣稱:「我將一切都看作損失,因為我只以認識我主基督耶穌為至寶;為了衪,我自願損失一切,拿一切當廢物,
為賺得基督,為結合於他」(斐3:8-9)。讓我們在四旬期內的種種苦難中懷有喜樂之情,因為我們「分受了基督的苦難」(伯前4:13)。

禱告:天父,讓我明白能跟耶穌一起受難、為他受難,以及在他內受難,皆是尊赫的!(斐1:29)
承諾:「看哪!我要行一件新事,如今即要發生」(依43:19)
讚頌:「上主,全能的天主!今在,昔在者!」(默11:17)「誰敢不光榮你的名號?」(默15:4)

學習放下執著∼也就在學習人生自在

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

能解決的事,不必去擔心;
不能解決的事,擔心也沒用。
在順境中感恩、在逆境中依舊心存喜樂

累了, 就把心事放下來

最近認識一位美國籍的出家師父,是個很有趣的事情。

特別是他叫我舉起蕃茄汁,跟他說話的經驗。

我們約在新竹的一家茶館,用英文談論著心經,
師父用英文跟我解釋因果、輪迴這些事情,這都還不稀奇。

230310a

有趣的事情在後頭呢!

師父一聽完我跟他提到個人煩惱的時候

他索性要我左手提起他剛買的三罐番茄汁,

一邊提著,一邊跟他說話。

可想而知,我左手感覺到疲勞的程度,跟時間成了正比。

也懊惱著為何師父要我一邊提著三罐蕃茄汁,一邊跟他說話。

受不了這樣的酸楚,我自行把左手放下,

卻聽到師父跟我說:

Hold it up, and keep talking to me.

230310b

聽到這樣的話,心理不免起了疑心,
我手提的那麼酸,

為何不讓我放下手上的重物,輕鬆地與他對談?

約莫過了15分鐘,我的左手實在承受不住了,
才聽見師父跟我說:「Now you can put it down.」。

看著我懷疑的臉,師父居然笑了出來。

230310c

「你不喜歡提著重物跟我說話,

為何你卻喜歡帶著煩惱,過著你的生活呢?

手酸了,放下就好,對待煩惱,不也是這樣?

或是這些煩惱,就像是那些番茄汁一樣,

是你自己用手把它們給舉起來的呢?」

有趣的經驗,對吧?

最近我開始這樣的練習, 一手舉起有重量的東西,一邊想著事情。

手酸了,自然會放下手上的東西, 看看有一天,我會不會也學到,

心累了,就把心事給放下來。

我們能很容易的放下有形的重物,卻很難放下無形的重擔。

230310d

執著的人生會讓自己承擔莫須有的重擔。

學習放下執著也就在學習人生自在。

聖召點滴(一)

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

生活感想:

祈禱時,雖然感到平安,感覺與天主的距離好像很接近,但近日生活體驗中才知道自己與主的距離仍然相當遠,在生活、工作跌跌踫踫的體驗中,發現原來自己的眼光不是仰望天主,而是時常將眼光放於人 身上,此發現令我感到非常痛心難過,覺得自己不配被天主所愛,但悲傷過後,我感謝主讓我發現了自己的不足,整個人感覺輕鬆多了,現在我每日早上均祈求上主的憐憫及引領,我知道不論晴天陰天,雲上太陽永遠不變。

這是我近日最愛的禱文
上主,請你將生命的道路指示給我,唯有在你面前有圓滿的喜悅,永遠在你右邊也是我的福樂。(詠16:11)

Just Stay

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

再沒有比這更大和感人的愛了!這比守齋克己更有意義!

Beautiful message to share

….. Just Stay

A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside.”Your son is here,” she said to the old man.
She had to repeat the words several times before the patient’s eyes opened.
Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man’s limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed.All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man’s hand and offering him words of love and strength.  Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile.

He refused. Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the Marine was oblivious of her and of the night noises of the hospital – the clanking of the oxygen tank, the laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries and moans of the other patients.Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night.Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Marine released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she had to do, he waited.Finally, she returned. She started to offer words of sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her.“Who was that man?” he asked.

The nurse was startled, “He was your father,” she answered.

“No, he wasn’t,” the Marine replied. “I never saw him before in my life.”“Then why didn’t you say something when I took you to him?”“I knew right away there had been a mistake, but I also knew he needed his son, and his son just wasn’t here.

When I realized that he was too sick to tell whether or not I was his son, knowing how much he needed me, I stayed.”

I came here tonight to

find a Mr. William Grey.

His Son was Killed in Iraq

today, and I was sent to

inform him. What was this

Gentleman’s Name?

The Nurse with Tears in

Her Eyes Answered,

Mr. William Grey………….The next time someone needs you …. just be there.  Stay.

耶穌恩友

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

耶穌說:『人若為自己的朋友捨掉性命,再沒有比這更大的愛情了。』(若15:13) 祂又說:『我是善牧:善牧為羊捨掉自己的性命。』(若10:11) 朋友,耶穌真是我們的恩友!

「耶穌恩友」的三節詩歌
1.耶穌是我親愛朋友,擔當我罪與憂愁,所有困難煩惱事情,帶到主恩座前求,多少平安時常失落,多少痛苦白承受,皆因未將各種事情,帶到主恩座前求。
2.無論試煉或遇引誘,或有煩惱壓心頭,切莫灰心切莫喪膽,來到主恩座前求,何處得此忠心朋友,分擔一切苦與憂,耶穌深知我們軟弱,來到主恩座前求。
3.無論軟弱勞苦多愁,掛慮重擔壓肩頭,主乃是我避難處所,來到主恩座前求,親人離我朋友棄我,來到主恩座前求,在主懷中必蒙護佑,與主同在永無憂。

朋友是永恆的感動

它取名為”信仰” — the dog’s name “Faith”

Friday, March 12th, 2010

請看,小狗也能克服!我們也不用害怕生命的一切挑戰了,尚且與主在一起沒有不可能的事!

好有意思的話!!

 

 

 

The miracle of life


Dog was born in 2002, Christmas Eve, it was born only two legs. Of course, it can not walk or even his mother did not want his dog. His first owner that the dog can not survive, so you want to kill it. However, it is now the owner, Jude Stringfellow met it and want to take care of it. She is determined to nurture and train the dog to walk. She named it “faith.” 


 

這只狗出生於2002年的平安夜,它出生的時候只有兩條腿。當然,它不能走路甚至他的狗媽媽也不想要他。他的第一個主人認為這只狗不能存活下來,因此想要弄死它。不過,它現在的主人,Jude Stringfellow遇見了它並想要照顧它。她下定決心培育和訓練這只小狗自己走路。她給它取名為“信仰”。

 

canine1In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement.  Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him for standing up and jumping around.  Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk.  Amazingly, after only 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward.  After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human being.
剛開始她把Faith放在滑板上讓它自己感覺到移動後來她把花生牛油醬放在調羹上作為它站立和跳躍的誘惑和獎賞。 甚至家的另外一條狗也鼓勵它行走。令人驚訝的是,短短6個月之後,如奇跡般的,Faith學會了用兩條後腿平衡並跳躍前進。通過在雪地中的進一步培訓之後,它可以像人類一樣用兩腿走路了。

 

canine2Faith loves to walk around now. No matter where he goes, he attracts people to him.  He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows.  There is now a book entitled ‘With a Little Faith’ being published about him.  He was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.
Faith
現在很喜歡四處溜達。不管去哪里,它總能成為眾人的焦點。在國際舞臺上它迅速成名並在不同的報紙和電視節目中出現。甚至有本書專為它出版,以“With a little Faith”的專題介紹它。它甚至有可能出現在哈利波特一部電影中。

canine3 
 
His present owner Jude Stringfellew has  given up her teaching post and plans to take him around the world to preach that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul’.  

它現在的主人Jude Stringfellew已經放棄了她教師的職業,計畫帶它周遊世界,傳播“即使你沒有一個完美的身體,你也可以擁有一個完美的靈魂”的信念。

canine10In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction.
I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day.
Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life.

生活中總有不如意的事情。為了更好的生活,你需要從另外一個方向樂觀的看待生活。
我希望這個故事能帶給你們每個人新的感悟,用感恩的心面對每個美麗的日子。

Faith
就是力量和生命奇跡的最好典範。
