    靈修片語 -- 愛,美滿生活的關鍵
    Posted: Sep-09-2023
    在今天的福音中,耶穌向我們展示了一幅充滿 愛及關懷的團體的美麗影像。它說明了我們該如何 建立真正的基督徒團契。 如果有人誤入歧途,我們必須以兄弟之愛接近他,將他帶回正軌。我們絶不應譴責他或指責他的錯誤行為,而必須與他面談,讓他確信我們對他的關愛。福音建議我們本著兄弟般的勸誡精神,悄悄地、私下地面對面去解決,重建破裂的關係。如果這辦法不行,則建議我們與一些智者一起去見他,讓他意識到整個團體都很關心他,希望他能回歸。 耶穌在福音中強調了祈禱的力量。他說:「如果兩個或三個人一起禱告,天父就會垂聽他們。」這對於那些祈求耶穌本人會在他們中間並參 與他們的祈禱乃是最好的保證。猶太人對團體祈禱 抱有極大的信心。經上寫道:「當兩個人坐下來學 習律法時,上主的榮耀就在他們中間。」團體祈禱 可以結束爭吵並帶來團結。盟約、團體、仁慈、寬 恕是這個宗教的特徵。這一切的經驗使我們的生活 變得快樂...

    靈修片語 -- 不死的靈魂
    Posted: Jun-23-2023
    主說:「我就是復活,就是生命;信從我的,即使死了,仍要活著;凡活著而信從我的人,必永遠不死。」(若十一:25-26)生和死是每個人終究要面對的,沒有人可以逃避死亡。世上所有的宗教,唯有基督宗教確切告訴世人---死後究竟到哪裡去,以及靈魂不死也不滅。 在《不死的靈魂》(Meine Erlebnisse mit Armen Seelen)書中,煉靈藉由瑪利亞.辛馬提醒世人說:『只有在往生之後,你們才會知道生前的每一年、每一天、 每一小時所做的事會為你們帶來什麼後果,或你們可以做些什麼事為自己帶來善果。只有到那時候,你們才會明白,自己如何虛度了生命。因此,我們應該趁活著時多做好事。如果人們知道往生是怎麼回事的話,他們會盡所有的力量,為另一個生命的開始做好準備...

    靈修片語 -- 我信唯一的天主
    Posted: Jun-16-2023
    一位八十多歲的資深傳道員,仍然努力教授信仰道理及負責讀經,她的精神可以是後輩的榜樣。她自己卻說:「一切是天主的恩寵。人在出生時,兩手抓得緊緊的小拳頭,其實是空的,甚麼也沒有。人走時,兩手掌伸開,也是空的,甚麼也帶不走。現在有的一切都是天主的賞賜及恩寵,如果沒有天主,憑自己,能有甚麼?感恩,我很感恩。一切都不是憑我自己能力能做到的。」 若望福音 2 章 1~5 節加納婚宴:『…在加里肋亞加納有婚宴,耶穌的母親在那裡;耶穌和他的門徒也被請去赴婚宴。酒缺了,耶穌的母親向祂說:「他們沒有酒了。」耶穌回答說:「女人,這於我和你有什麼關係?我的時刻尚未來到。」祂的母親給僕役說:「祂無論吩咐你們什麼,你們就作什麼...

    靈修片語 -- 若望的兒子西滿,你比他們更愛我嗎?
    Posted: Jun-09-2023
    在信仰生活裡邊,有時我們可以很容易的原諒別人,但是很難寬恕自己,很難和自己的過去和解,甚至內心 會不斷地內疚,自責。若望福音 21:15-19,關於耶穌 復活後顯現給門徒們並且問伯多祿你愛我嗎的這段經文 是好的治癒材料,尤其治愈我們內疚的心,自責的心, 羞愧的心。我們都知道,伯多祿是門徒之長。在最後晚餐,其他門徒眾目睽睽之下,伯多祿表現出要為耶穌而死,但是最後他卻背叛了耶穌三次。這三次的背叛成了 伯多祿一生的污點。伯多祿的內心是非常的羞愧,尤其 當他在其他門徒面前時。然而,就是在這種情況下,耶 穌問了伯多祿三次,你愛我嗎?每一次耶穌問伯多祿你 愛我嗎,伯多祿可能都想鑽地縫逃跑,因為他實在感到 好羞愧。但是,其實耶穌每一次問伯多祿你愛我嗎...

    靈修片語 -- 天主向愛祂的人所顯示的方式
    Posted: Jun-02-2023
    對那真正愛我、跟隨這位甘飴又多情的聖言之聖訓 (耶穌) 的人,妳知道我如何顯示我自己嗎?我是依照人靈所懷有的渴望,用多種的方式來顯示我自己。 我的顯示方式主要有三種。第一種是透過我的唯一聖子一一聖言,用我的深情及仁愛顯示給人。這份深情與仁愛,就在因熾熱愛情所傾流的聖血中彰顯出來。仁愛的顯示方式也有兩項:一項是一般性的、眾人所共有的方式,亦即對那些身處普通愛德境界的人 ; 他們從我手中領受到許多及各式各樣的恩典,他們可從中覺察到和見到我的仁愛。另一項是特殊的方式:是為那些已經成為朋友的人靈;對於他們,除了共同的顯示方式外,他們還可以在他們的靈魂內品嚐、洞察、體驗及感受到這仁愛。 我的仁愛的第二種顯示方式也是屬於內在的,就是我透過愛情顯示給他們。我不看人的情面,只看他們的聖善渴望 ; 我親臨到他們的靈魂內,是依據他們尋找我的完善程度而定。在這第二種顯示中,有時我會這樣做:就是向他們揭露未來的事。我會按照他們及其他受造物的需要,用許多及不同的方式履行此事。有時則以第三種的方式顯示:我會依據人靈的慾望和願望, 以多種的方式,在他們的神魂上顯示我的真理一一我唯一聖子的親臨...
