20year

Our community has more than twenty years of history in Dallas. What began as five or six families coming together to study the Bible and pray together, quickly became a community that regularly gathered at nearby churches for Masses and meetings. As the numbers grew, they requested that the Diocese of Dallas help establish a permanent Chinese Catholic community in 1990. In 1992, we put our money together and purchased a small office building in Richardson, Texas. By the end of 1993, we had renovated it to become our sanctuary and activity hall. With the guidance of priests seconded from Taiwan and the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, our small community grew stronger in numbers and in faith.

耶穌顯聖容

 

 

 

彭保祿神父

新經中, 除了聖誕和復活外, 最有意義的事蹟之一便是耶穌在大博爾山顯聖容 (瑪 17:1-8). 在這事蹟中, 耶穌顯示了祂的天主性, 是由法律和先知的代表, 即梅瑟和厄里亞, 陪伴著的. 雲彩中的聲音更證明了耶穌的身份:這是我的愛子,是我所中悅的,你們要聽從祂。 除了天父以外,還有誰能說這種話呢?而天父正要我們聽從祂的愛子。

再者,三位宗徒也有他們特別的身份。我們都知道伯多祿早已被耶穌指定他為磐石,要在其上建立祂的教會,使陰間的門不能戰勝它;(瑪16:18)。 所以他代表了普世教會的首領,即日後的教宗。另外一位弟子雅各伯是日後耶路撒冷的首位主教,那是暴君黑落德殺害的第一位宗徒。雅各伯代表了地方教會的首長。最後那裡還有救主最鐘愛的弟子若望聖史。這位宗徒除了得到照顧臨死的救主的母親外,沒有得到其它的任命,因為他的任命是普遍性的,就是愛。若望宗徒代表了愛,是因為他特別愛了他的師主,也在他留下的福音和書信裡,詳論了愛的真諦。這種愛便是教會的靈魂。耶穌便是用這種愛建立了祂的教會。

這段福音事蹟的一般解釋便是,耶穌基督要通過新舊約代表們的臨在,建立一個新人類,使這新團體,通過普世及地方教會,建基在全人類的愛上。所以天父才會說:你們要從祂!
