Legion Fellowship 圣母军交流会 (5)

It is 1:00 am.

I was just backed from After-fellowship of the Fellowship (pic below). It was a relaxing sessions after a day's activities.

现在已是凌晨一点了。

我刚从交流会后的小交流会,也称为【酒徒会】。这是我们大家在一天的活动后,愿意参加的一些单位领导,集聚在一起,谈天说地,喝酒,喝茶,甚至喝奶,非常轻松的交流。(下图)


The third day of fellowship started early. At 8:30 am, we were already at the Immaculate Conception of Taipei for Mass which was celebrated by Archbishop Hong and Bishop Wang, and con-celebrated by eleven priests.

After Mass, talks were given by Fr. Pu from Korea but based in Taiwan for the past four years. He shared his experience of building community with the help of legionaries; and his tireless effort to form ten praesidium to change the life of his rural parish.

Archbishop treated us to a sumptious lunch at a nearby famous restaurant. He was the most friendly Archbishop I have ever met. He toasted with all the legionaries by going table by table.
He respects and appreciates the contribution of Legion of Mary in community building and evangelization.

After lunch, we adjourned to the Church of the Holy Family for a talk.

At 6:00pm, we were bused to Taipei 101 for sightseeing.

It was a cool and windy evening. I sat at the entrance of Taipei 101, feeling safer than my country. I did not go up the the observation deck at floor 89, but instead walked around the shopping area.

At 8:00 pm, Ms Lee, the former president of TaiChong Curia which organised the 2004 Legion Fellowship in Taichong, brought two of us to Carnegie's Spirit of Rock restaurant for a delicious dinner.

The day ended with with the After-fellowhship of the Fellowship.


交流会的第三天,我们很早就出发了。大约早上八点半,我们就到了圣母无染原罪总主教座堂,参加又两位主教及十一位神父共祭的弥撒。

弥撒过后,韩籍的朴神父,主持了一个讲座,分享他的牧灵经验,特别是圣母军在协助建立团体的贡献。他也分享了他目前服务堂区的故事,如何藉着圣母军改变了教友的生活,及从零到建立十个支团的努力。

过后,总主教在附近一家餐馆招待了我们。最令人感动的是这位总主教的随和及亲民态度。他是我见过的许多主教中最随和及易亲近的一位。他到每一张桌子,向团员们问候及干杯。

午餐后,我们移师到圣家堂听讲座。

在傍晚六时,我们到底了台北101参观。我没有上去89楼的观望台,而到商店逛逛。我坐在101的外面,享受着凉风,感觉到很安全(比我国更安全)

在八点,台中的前任团长李静芷招待我们到他女儿管理的意见西式餐馆用晚餐。

今天就在主徒会集聚后结束。
