News from Toronto

Dear friends,

Want to share with you an unfortunate and sad news happened this weekend in Canada:

The Fountain of Love and Life (“FLL”) 生命恩泉 Ministry is a Chinese Catholic Ministry formed in 2004. With God’s abundance grace, people with various talents have been called to serve in this ministry, and throughout these years, the ministry has been able to produce various TV, radio, and web media content to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.

For the past year, the ministry has been under great pressure and challenges from another organization to the point that the it want to cease its operations. The ministry has discerned its path and tried to resolve the challenges in the most peaceful way as what Jesus taught us. However, the ministry continues to experience challenges from this organization. The ministry is grateful that after all these tactics, it did not scare away its staffs, volunteers, and the many supporters, rather it strengthen all of their faith in God and learn what an evanglization journey is meant to be.

Unfortunately in this weekend, the airtime of the FLL radio program in Toronto and the FLL TV program has been abruptly taken over by the other organization. Fortunately, the radio program broadcast in Vancouver has not been affected at the meantime. Also, you can still listen and watch the FLL programs online at www.fll.cc. FLL is currently working hard to resolve the matter and hopefully the restore these channels to evangelize.

Personally I would like to ask for your prayer to pray for the Chinese Catholic Evangelization Ministries! and a peaceful resolution of the situation. May Fountain of Love and Life 生命恩泉 continues to serve Him and evangelize to the ends of the earth!

May God bless you all.
Paul Tam

神父講道 – 聖西滿及聖猶達 (宗徒) (慶日) (週一) (2013年10月28日)

聖西滿及聖猶達 (宗徒) (慶日)

恭讀聖路加福音 6:12-19

那時,耶穌出去,上山祈禱;他撤夜向天主祈禱。天一亮,他把門徒叫來,由他們中揀選了十二人,並稱他們為宗徒:即西滿,耶穌又給他起名叫伯多祿,和他的兄弟安德肋、雅各伯、若望、斐理伯、巴爾多祿茂、瑪竇、多默、阿耳斐的兒子雅各伯、號稱「熱誠者」的西滿、雅各伯的兄弟猶達和猶達斯依斯加略,他成了負賣者。
耶穌同他們下山,站在一塊平地上,有他的一大群門徒和很多從猶太、耶路撒冷及提洛和漆冬海邊來的群眾,他們來是為聽他講道,並為治好自己的病症;那些被邪魔纏擾的人都被治好了。群眾都設法觸摸他,因為有一種能力從他身上出來,治好眾人。

—上主的話。

(Feast of Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:12-19

12 In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. 13 And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; 14 Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, 15 and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, 16 and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. 17 And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; 18 and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. 19 And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came forth from him and healed them all.

路6:12-19  (讀經 ── 弗2:19-22  詠19)

耶穌出去,上山祈禱;他撤夜向天主祈禱。天一亮,他把門徒叫來,由他們中揀選了十二人,並稱他們為宗徒:即西滿,耶穌又給他起名叫伯多祿,和他的兄弟安德肋、雅各伯、若望、斐理伯、巴爾多祿茂、瑪竇、多默、阿耳斐的兒子雅各伯、號稱「熱誠者」的西滿、雅各伯的兄弟猶達和猶達斯依斯加略,他成了負賣者。
耶穌同他們下山,站在一塊平地上,有他的一大群門徒和很多從猶太、耶路撒冷及提洛和漆冬海邊來的群眾,他們來是為聽他講道,並為治好自己的病症;那些被邪魔纏擾的人都被治好了。群眾都設法觸摸他,因為有一種能力從他身上出來,治好眾人。

 

默 想

  • 揀選十二宗徒是項重要事件,聖史路加刻意描述耶穌為此事,連日來徹夜向天父祈禱。
  • 我們看到,十二宗徒不是完美的人,甚至不是什麼出類拔萃的人,他們都如我們一樣平凡,各有缺點。
  • 我們又看到,耶穌就這樣揀選了他們,成就了他們每一個,我們是否體會自己也被基督所造就?被基督所造就究竟有否在你身上發生?
  • 這些紛紛來到耶穌面前的人,都想觸摸他,皆因他們都信任他,同樣,他們的心亦被耶穌所觸摸、牽動,完全直接地,甚至不只停留在頭腦上對耶穌的認知,更無須什麼哲學上、形而上的層面。
  • 這份治癒,直接地臨於當下。

主日講道 – 常年期第三十主日 (2013年10月27日)

恭讀聖路加福音 18:9-14

那時候,耶穌向幾個自充為義人,而輕視其他人的人,設了這個比喻:「有兩個人上聖殿去祈禱:一個是法利塞人,另一個是稅吏。
「那個法利塞人站著,心裡這樣祈禱:天主,我感謝你,因為我不像其他人,勒索、不義、姦淫,也不像這個稅吏。我每周兩次禁食,凡我所得的,都捐獻十分之一。
「那個稅吏卻遠遠地站著,連舉目望天都不敢,只是捶著自己的胸膛說:天主,可憐我這個罪人吧!
「我告訴你們:這稅吏回到他家裡,成了正義的人,而那法利塞人卻不然。因為凡高舉自己的,必被貶抑;凡貶抑自己的,必被高舉。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 18:9-14

9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and despised others: 10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, `God, I thank thee that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I get.’ 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, `God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for every one who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
