St. Paul 圣保禄

It was one year late, but better than never.

At the tail end of The Year of St. Paul, my parish held talk sessions on life and spirit of St. Paul in four languages. The sessions were held simultaneously at four venues from 3pm to 6pm.

Fr. Lawrence Ng was the speaker for Chinese speaking parishioners. He set his talk in three parts: the persecution of Christians by Paul, the conversion of Paul and the missionary journey of Paul.

This was his maiden public talk (besides homilies in Masses) for Fr. Lawrence since his ordination on 2-2-09.

A day earlier, on Friday, 19th June 2009, Pope Benedict XVI has inaugurated in St. Peter's Square The Year of Priests. It ends 19th June 2010.

“as for me, the only thing I can boast about is the cross of Lord Jesus Christ...”(Gal 6:14)
“至于我,我只以我们的主耶稣基督的十字架来夸耀。。(迦6:14)



虽然是迟了将近一年,但好过没行动。

在保禄年几乎结束的时候,我的堂区举办了关于保禄生平及精神的讲座。这讲座是以四语言同时但分开进行,时间是从下午三时到六时。

黄大华神父是华文组的讲师。他的讲座内容分为三部分进行:保禄迫害教会,保禄的皈依及保禄的传教事业。

除了弥撒中的证道外,这是大华神父在2-2-09晋铎后,第一次负责讲座。他笑言他的处女讲座,奉献了给加影圣家堂。

较早前,于19-06-09 星期五,教宗本笃十六世在罗马的圣保禄大殿为【司铎年】揭幕,直到 19-06-2010 结束。

请多多“指教” Please point out

在诗巫可热闹了,一年中三次圣保禄年祈祷礼仪,展览会、”无数” 次的朝圣、小盘石的保禄狱函、宗徒大事录问答比赛及圣保禄常识比赛等等等等等...

司铎年开始了,一系列的活动肯定是免不了。

我们的教区也是等等等等等!等到扫禄变成了保禄,然后再等保禄走到希腊,才开始我们的保禄年活动。。所以,堂区也是等到耶稣复活了才行动!

我不知道司铎年是否又要等到修生升执事,再升神父,然后成为主教,才来庆祝司铎年!

我这个井底蛙在去年到香港、澳门时,看到那里的教会已经从教宗2007年宣布后,就开始行动及计划了。我躲在井里,不知是教区慢,还是堂区慢?!?!
