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.

神父的話 ─ 慶祝與遵行

彭保祿神父


一年有四季,禮儀年也有不同的季節。始於將臨期,也就是聖誕期,然後接著一小段常年期主日,通常在主受洗節之後,開始四旬期,聖週,Holy Triduum (聖週四、聖週五、聖週六共三天)及最重要、最快樂的耶穌復活主日。接著我們慶祝耶穌升天節,聖神降臨節(也就是教會的生日)和天主聖三週。在天主聖三的二週內,我們慶祝耶穌聖體聖血及耶穌聖心節。

如我們所見,這是一連串喜悅的慶祝。但如果我們稍稍留意就可了解天主聖三的慶祝,事實上是派遣門徒們去做“到世界各地宣講福音,以聖父、聖子及聖神之名為人施洗,教導他們遵行我所要求你們的戒令“。因此,教會必需要遵行耶穌基督要全世界遵守的命令。換言之,禮儀年分為二:前六個月從十一月底的將臨期到次年五、六月的天主聖三週。這段期間我們慶祝天主所賜的珍貴賞賜經由不同的歡喜奧蹟。後六個月從六月至十二月初的將臨期,我們被要求去遵行、去實行、去操習。事實上今年的福音開始於瑪竇的山中聖訓。此教導是新天國、新人類的大憲章。這些規定、勸告無他,就是為我們每日的生活守則,幫助我們成為新的受造物,真正的基督門徒。

我們真的需要天主特別的恩寵,才能成為好基督徒。如果我們首先願意放下自我,改掉、淨化從始祖亞當承繫而來的敗壞天性,透過山中聖訓,藉著肖似耶穌﹣﹣新亞當,天主期望我們成為新的受造物,讓我們接受天主的邀請,做他受教的孩子。阿門。
