Silent Retreat 静默退省


星期五至星期日,我去了马六甲善牧修院(上图),参加三机构的年度静默退省。共有十三位来自光仁,芥子心及恒研心的成员及伙伴参与。

『放下,放空,放平,放心,放手』

指导神师黄大华神父,就用这简短的数语,开始了这退省。在过后的36个小时里,参加者都禁言,禁扰及静默的投入了这次的避静,深切的进入了一个平和的境界,与天主交融,聆听,对话及和好。

年度的退省,帮助我们检讨,修补及加深与天主的关系,进而促进兄弟姐妹,团体之间的和睦及共融。

每个人该受鼓励,每年至少要有一次一天,两天或三天的退省。

From Friday to Sunday, I was down in Melaka to attend our annual Retreat at the Good Shepherd Seminay (above pic). 13 members and associates from 3 organisations – Guang Ren Service Center (Cahaya Puri Holdings Sdn Bhd), Mustard Seed Evangelisation Center and Costantini Research Center attended this silent Retreat.

『Let down, Let out, Let flat, let off, let go』

With these words from Retreat director Rev. Fr. Lawrence Ng, we started our Retreat on Friday night. For the next 36 hours, participants would observe rule of no talking and complete silence, creating a conducive environment to listen and dialogue with God, in peace and harmony.

Annual retreat help us to review, repair and deepen our relationship with God, in so doing, would enhance our communion and harmony in personal relationship with fellow brothers and sisters, and the community.

Every one is encouraged to attend a retreat ( 1day, 2 days or 3 days) as least once a year.


在静默退省中,有许多时间做祈祷,各种方式的祈祷。我用了半个小时,筑成了1/3个篮球场大的玫瑰念珠,我称之为 “玫瑰之路”。用步行的方式,每天都念了20 端的玫瑰经。

In silent retreat, you have plenty of time for prayer...any style or way of prayer. I spent half an hour to make this rosary almost 1/3 of the basketball court. I called it " Way of the Rosary". By walking, recited 20 decades of Rosary each day.

大哥;
請更正:Contantini→Costantini

'Costantini'是主徒會會祖剛恆毅樞機的名字。

謝謝
