3. Day 3 第三天


第24届马新汶台华语圣母军交流会,在六月三日至六日,假柔佛新山纽约酒店圆满的举行。

这项主题为『慈悲的面容』年度盛会,吸引了来自五个国家(马新汶台及香港)的21个地区/单位,近四百名圣母军团员参加。

交流会的节目以三天/三个阶段进行: 1. 开幕感恩弥撒,迎宾晚宴, 2. 灵修思考、交流,3. 朝圣、户外活动,闭幕晚宴。

开幕感恩弥撒由甲柔教区伯纳德主教主祭,顾有彦、姚佳祝、张凯丰及诗巫教区的江宗欢四位神父共祭。

伯纳德主教热情的欢迎各地军友来到新山。他很谦卑的因为不能以华语与军友交流而表达歉意。无论如何,主教的英语训诲中,赞赏圣母军交流会在新山举行,是本地区推动圣母军事工及使命的一项努力。

他提到教宗方济格在去年圣母无染原罪节日宣布慈悲特殊圣年,对圣母军有着特别的意义。圣母无玷圣心,与慈悲泉源的基督圣心是心心相印,密不可分。所以,以祈祷及服务为主的圣母军,也必须有着如圣心般的爱心。

要有这颗爱心,主教说我们必须: 1)无私、超越自我,2)了解痛苦,知道他人为什么痛苦悲伤,3)本身也要体验痛苦悲伤,方能感同身受。

圣母军有了爱心,一切工作将以爱为出发点,以爱来看待周遭 的人及事物。

主教邀请军友们多多祈祷,祈求自己有着一颗如基督圣心、玛利亚无玷之心般的慈悲之心。最后,他勉励军友们继续慈悲的主要工作 - 探访病人、老人及无助者。

第二天,三位神师分享了三个讲座:姚佳祝神父主讲天主的慈悲;张凯丰神父主讲教会的慈悲;叶保胜神父主讲世界的慈悲。

在这十个小时的密集一天里,军友们从神师的讲座中,更深入的了解天主的慈悲,明白慈悲年的目的,也知道作为一位基督徒、圣母军团员,应该怎样去善度圣年。团员们也利用休息、餐饮时间,相互交流、分享及认识。

傍晚,各地区的代表出席了联络会会议,共商讨相关地区的圣母军发展及动态,也决定明年交流会的主办单位。

第三天大早七点三十分,团员们乘坐巴士,浩浩荡荡的从酒店出发,开始了教堂朝圣及参观的行程。

除了两间慈悲年朝圣教堂 - 圣母无染原罪堂及圣心主教座堂之外,他们也到甲柔教区牧民中心及主教府参观。平易近人的伯纳德主教在主教府欢迎军友的到访。

傍晚回到酒店后,军友们都换上美丽的晚装,出席了惜别晚宴。很快的,交流会已经到了尾声,团员们都依依不舍,尽量利用时间,相互惜别,拍照留念。

晚宴的高潮时刻是宣布明年交流会的主办单位。当 “台湾高雄” 的名字被宣布之后,赢得一片掌声及尖叫声。

第24届交流会就在掌声及“明年高雄见”的告别语中,成功与圆满的结束了。感谢天主。

Sun Moon Lake was the last destination of the trip for my two children.

From Sun Moon Lake, we arrived at Taichung city where we parted company. Our two children continued their journey northward to Taipei, where they put up a night and flew off to Malaysia the next day.

We were warmly welcomed by our fellow legionaries brethren Wei Qiang and wife Li Fang.

For the next few days, Wei Qiang became our guide and driver. we traveled south to Kaoshiong and Tainan, meeting many old friends, seeing many new places, visited many unique churches and eating different types of food. It was a great journey.

Sun Moon Lake 日月潭

At Qingjing town 清境


 We left Qingjing in the morning for Sun Moon Lake.

Sun Moon Lake is a renowned tourists' favourite, and also a big reservoir. It is about 7.5 square kilometer.

We arrived at the lake on April 15 at about 3 pm. It was raining but did not deter us from lake side cycling. It was fun and wonderful experience.

We put up a night at a cosy lake side hotel, and did a boat ride before we departed to Taichung.

因为天气不佳,我们提早离开了清境市镇,前往日月潭。

日月潭是游客必到的景点,也是一个水库。它的面积大约7.5 平方公里。

我们在四月15日下午三点左右抵达日月潭。当时下着雨,但阻止不了我们湖边骑脚车的兴趣,那是另一番的享受。

我们进住了一间舒适的湖边旅馆,也乘船游湖一趟,然后才离开,前往台中。

Yilan, Hualian, Taruko 宜兰、花莲、太鲁阁


To all my reader friends, sincere apology for not posting sooner.

We had returned home on April 23 at about 10:30 pm. It was tiring. 

The trip to Taiwan was quite packed with activities and visiting places. In order to allow my two children to cover more places, we had to get up early and resting late.

In Yilan, we stayed in a beautiful and comfortable home-stay amidst padi fields and streams and a river.

From Yilan , we traveled south to Hualian, a beautiful agriculture county. However, the weather was not favourable to us, it rained throughout the journey and missed out the beautiful scenery along the way.

After Hualian, we crossed the main range of Taruko mountain where we enjoyed the great scenery of geographical wonders of Taiwan.

It was raining, windy and misty when we reached the highest road of Taiwan at Wu Ling. We put up a night at a small but beautiful hotel in Qingjing town.

首先向部落格的读者朋友道歉,相当久的时间没有放上帖子。我们已经在23号晚上,回到了马来西亚。

这趟旅行非常的疲倦。

因为要让我们的两个孩子看到更多的地方及风景,我们的行程倒是相当紧密的。

在宜兰,我们住在一间相当别致舒适的民宿,四周稻田及旁边一条小河。

从宜兰,我们前往花莲,一个风景美丽的农业地区。以为天气不好,整天下雨,我们就不能够观赏沿途的美景。

离开花莲,我们经过太鲁阁,观看了壮观的地理景观,神功妙化,令人赞叹。

在风雨及大雾中,我们越过中央山脉,经过全台湾公路最高点武岭,进入清境农乡,进住一间也是相当舒适,别致的小酒店。
