师傅与徒弟 Master & apprentice


这是一篇我在诗巫【爱之光】月刊二月份里面写的一份文章,在此和各位分享。【爱之光】创刊于1978年。

圣母军的训练观念是师傅与徒弟的方法。圣母军没有训练团员的课程,没有讲课,没有教材。它的训练法是把工作摆出来,然后用实际的工作,作为示范,去教导新团员如何工作。简单的说,就是身教。

在一个堂区里,司铎就是师傅了。司铎工作多,就需要很多人来和他分担及协助他的部分工作。所以,司铎除了照顾教友群体的需要,还要训练一批能够帮助他工作的信友。

大约在二十七年前,当我初加入圣母军时,还是一位吴下阿蒙,根本就不知道什么是圣母军,也不知传播福音是什么一回事。当时的本堂是法国籍的夏理和神父(下图)。很多时候,我就是跟作他去拜访医院、教友家庭、病老者,穷困者及慰问亡者家庭等。慢慢的从他那儿学习到关怀别人及接触他人是多么美妙及有意义的事。夏神父的榜样,他的传教士精神,俭朴的生活,成为我学习的榜样,也就奠定了我日后在教会工作的基础,圣母军也成为我归属的团体组织。

我只是跟他学习的许多“徒弟”之一。一位师傅,可以训练出好多好多的徒弟,造福团体,教会及社会。耶稣自己也立下了这样的榜样,他为了准备归化世界,曾经拣选(耶稣去寻找)了一小群人开始,叫他们跟在他左右,亲自教导他们,又用他自己的精神充实他们。(手册:司铎与圣母军)

今天,很难找到师傅拜艺了。假如你找到了,就要好好的珍惜,并且要学以致用。


Below is an article (in Chinese) I wrote in the February issue of 『 Love of Light 』 ( founded 1978) monthly Legion newspaper published in Sibu, Sarawak.


The idea of formation of the Legion of Mary is the master and apprentice method. This is the ideal way of training. Instead of delivering lengthy lectures, the master places the work before the eyes of the apprentice, and by practical demonstration shows him how it is to be done, commenting on the different point thereof as he proceeds. Then the apprentice himself attempts the work and is corrected in his execution of it. It is lead by example.

In a parish, parish priest is the Master. Parish priest is laden with works and responsibilities, so he needs many helpers to share and help in his works. Besides the pastoral care of his people, the priest needs to train up laity to be his co-workers.

More than 27 years ago, when I joined the Legion of Mary, I was raw and naive, knew nothing about the legion, and evangelisation was a foreign term. The parish priest then was Rev. Fr. Henriot (pic below). I used to follow him to visit hospitals, families, aged, sick and lonely, the bereaved and many others. I experienced the joy of caring and reaching out to others. Rev. Fr. Henriots's missionary spirit, simple living has become my role model of service to others, and laid the foundation of my serving to the church and membership in the Legion of Mary.

I am one of the many apprentices under Fr. Henriot. A master can have many apprentices to serve the church, community and society. Our Lord Jesus, the Master of masters, in preparation for the conversion of the world, was to surround himself with his chosen ones, whom he tutored and filled with his own spirit. He led by example.

Today, willing master is hard to come by. If you found one, make good use of the opportunity.

志贤兄

你们真有心,等着你们来。

西满兄

你不来,可说是我们各有所失。

我不是区团或支团职员,却被分配负责纪念特刊,催支团呈上所需的文件(资料),催献词,真令人头痛。

这些几天暂把纪念刊丢到一边,因为五月份的《爱之光》要于这周末交差的。
