梳邦再也圣母 Our Lady of Subang Jaya



另一个圣母玛利亚显奇迹的事件,正发生在雪兰莪州的梳邦再也圣多默斯莫尔教堂。大约三年前,圣母的影像出现在距离这间教堂大约两公里的梳邦再也医药中心的玻璃上。(参看旧帖子圣母在梳邦再也)

圣母显奇迹的新闻及照片,在社交媒体、报章被疯传,不到一个星期,几乎传遍世界许多地区。报道说许多信徒看到这间教堂的圣母塑像的头会左右转动,还会对人微笑。

我接到许多来自外地朋友的电话,询问到底是什么情况。

昨天下午,我就和太太及一位朋友爱端姐妹,驱车到该教堂探个究竟,看看圣母塑像显灵的事,到底是怎么回事。

这是我们第一次到圣多默斯莫尔教堂。这教堂坐落在梳邦再也的一个工业区里,邻居都是工厂。不过教堂环境优美,教堂里面非常的安静、平和及美观。

那座圣母塑像,安置在靠墙露天而建的一个圣母亭洞里面。这态像是依照1858年,圣母在法国露德向一位女孩伯纳德显现时情景而造的。圣母双手合十,女童伯纳德则跪下诵念玫瑰经。

我们看到大约30 位朝圣教友正在圣母亭前诵念玫瑰经。很好奇的,我们走的很靠近圣母像,集中眼光看着圣母的脸,细细观察是否有任何异样,如头转动、微笑、或眼睛闪动。

态像的圣母非常的美丽,安详。。但没有微笑,头没有摆动。。。

我们坐下来,各自的诵念玫瑰经。(通常我们到任何一间教堂的圣母亭,都会这样做)还有许多来自各地的朝圣者陆续的到来。

 过后,我们会见了该教堂的主任彭睿明神父(Fr. Raymond Pereira). 他很热情的邀请我们到他的办公室,与我们分享了这个圣母态像的奇迹故事。

彭神父在今年六月被调派到这里担任本堂主任神父。他马上开始了建造圣母亭的工作。他在本地购买了这尊来自越南的圣母态像(塑像)。圣母亭在十月七日,玫瑰圣母主保日当天祝圣及开幕,塑像也正式置放在此。紧接着,神父及一些教友就看到了圣母态像显现的一些奇迹。

有些看到圣母的头左右转动,有些看到圣母微笑,有些看到圣母目视他们。。有时神父可以与圣母沟通。

圣母告诉神父:诵念玫瑰经,我会给你们看到更多。。”。

神父通常都会劝导到来的朝圣者,不是只要看奇迹,也不要多讲话、道是非,而要多多诵念玫瑰经。

对我来说,我没有看到圣母的头或眼睛有移动,也没有对我微笑,也没有对我讲话。我不是为奇迹而来。

假如当时态像的圣母头摆动,或者对我笑,我会很疑惑及迷乱,因为这不是我所爱、相信及所要的圣母,我会问你是谁!

我相信有奇迹的发生,但不要这种奇迹。

所讲述、传布的圣母态像奇迹可能是真或假,但我看到了一个非常正面的迹象:这里发生的事情,引导了更多人爱圣母,更多人爱诵念玫瑰经,更多人认识耶稣,也更多人回归天主台前。

我对圣母的恭敬丝毫不靠奇迹,所以我没看到什么,也不会改变什么。我还是一样的诵念玫瑰经,爱天主,爱他人,遵循耶稣的教导,活出一个丰盛的人生。

我相信彭睿明神父的个人分享故事。他热爱圣母,恭敬圣母,所以圣母会给他特别的宠爱,包括看到一些别人看不到是神迹,或特别的恩赐及恩宠。

假如朋友问我怎样?真或假?要不要去看看?

我的答案是:去!去圣母亭前诵念玫瑰经,然后到清净优雅的教堂里面朝拜圣体,感恩天主,就如平日在自己教堂所做一样。这是一个灵修之旅,不是寻找奇迹,你一定会收获良多。

但假如你不去,也不会有损失,只是好奇心会干扰你!

Another Mother Mary's miracle event taking place in St. Thomas More Church, Subang Jaya, Selangor recently.  About 3 years ago, picture of our Lady appeared on pieces of glass at Subang Jaya Medical Center, about 2 kms away. (See old posting Mother Mary at SDMC, Subang Jaya)

It was circulated in the social media, newspapers that many saw the statue of Mary turning her head, smiling, tearing ....

I received calls from outstation friends wanted to find out more of it.

Yesterday afternoon, Friday 16, my wife and I, together with another friend, went to St. Thomas More Church in Subang Jaya, to get more information about this miraculous statue of Mother Mary.

This is our first visit to this church which is situated in an industrial area of Subang Jaya. It is a modern church with comfortable seating and peaceful and quiet ambiance.

The miraculous statue of  Mary (Our Lady of Lourdes) is placed in a grotto built outdoor besides the church entrance.

We saw about 30 devotees reciting Rosary in front of the grotto. Curiosity brought us standing closer to the statue and taking a long good look at the face of the statue. The statue of Mother Mary looks beautiful and serene ... but no smiling at us, no turning head ...

We sat down on the chairs provided to recite the Rosary on our own. Devotees continue to stream in ...

Later, we met Fr. Raymond Pereira, the Parish Priest of the Church. He is a Marian priest who has a child-like simplicity of great love and devotion towards Mother Mary.

He shared with us his wonderful personal story of encounters and miraculous happenings on the statue of Mary.

Fr. Raymond started building this grotto immediately after his transfer to this church in June. It was officially opened on Oct 7, Feast of the Holy Rosary, when the statue of Mother Mary was placed in it. Then some miraculous events taken place immediately.

He and many parishioners saw the head of the statue turning, eyes open wider when Rosaries are being recited. At times, Fr. was able to communicate with Mother Mary.

Mother Mary told him "pray the Rosary, more would be revealed".

Fr. Raymond advised all the pilgrims coming here not to seek miracles, not talking, gossiping .... but pray the Rosary !

For me, Mother Mary did not turn her head, nor smiled or talked to me. It didn't matter much  to me. I came not for miracle nor abnormal encounter.

If I did see the statue turning her head, or smiling at me, I would be very puzzled and confused. This is not the Mother Mary I wanted.

My love and devotion to her has not change. "Pray the Rosary" is her perceptual request to all children of God, and I shall continue to do so...

I believed Fr. Raymond's personal story. He has been "chosen" to see what others may not see ... It would take a longer time to see what exactly these "miracles" mean .. or true/false.

These “miracles" had brought many to the church, recites the Rosary, knowing Jesus.

If  anyone ask me how is it ? shall I go to see? real or false?

My response is: Go! pray the Rosary at the Grotto, then go into the quiet and beautiful church for adoration of the blessed Sacrament, just as one normally does in his/her own parish. Take it as a spiritual journey, not miracle seeking , you will be rewarded abundantly.

And if you do not go, you loose nothing ... curiosity will haunt you only !
