有一天,蜗牛看见一个正在旋转的陀螺。

陀螺旋转了好久好久都不愿停下来。

这让蜗牛很纳闷。于是,蜗牛便问陀螺:“陀螺呀,你为什么旋转?”

听到蜗牛的提问,陀螺没有停下来,一面旋转一面回答说:“我快乐的时候会旋转。”

陀螺的回答让蜗牛觉得很新奇,因为蜗牛从来没有听说过旋转也是一种表达快乐的方式,于是便紧接着问:“所以你现在非常快乐咯?”

陀螺依旧没有停止旋转,回答蜗牛说:“不是的。”

这回,蜗牛被陀螺搞糊涂了,听得一头雾水:“你不是说你快乐的时候就会旋转吗?既然你现在不快乐,那你又是为了什么而旋转呢?”

陀螺依旧旋转着,回答说:“蜗牛啊,我现在旋转,是因为不想让人看清我不快乐的样子。我旋转,是为了让人看不清我,就像你感到不安时会躲到壳里一样。”

 

 

당신만 보면 돼…

you are teaching me how to walk on the raging water…

당신만 보면 돼…

이제 알았어요

이렇구나

그분의 마음이

이제 알았어요…..

다 사랑하기 때문에…

사랑과 책임

 

因为祢爱我,如此爱我

祢若给我一颗种子,
我就把它埋在土里,
等待开花时献给祢。

祢若给我一支笔,
我就给你写封情书,
告诉祢我多么爱祢。

祢若给我一些土,
我会把土塑成器,
然后献给祢。

我爱祢,如此爱祢;
因为祢爱我,如此爱我。

祢给了我一颗心,
所以我也要把这颗心献给祢。

我爱祢…
我爱祢…

It is impossible for a soul who has heard Your voice to ignore You and not love You.
So tender and earnest is Your voice.
Indeed, You are sweet, sweeter than honey.
No sweetness on earth is comparable to Your sweetness.
I did not understand why they called You “Sweet Jesus”
but i have started to understand now…

It is impossible for a soul who has tasted this sweetness of Yours to remain quiet.
You fill up this empty soul of mine.
From Your sweetness I draw this great joy, joy that cannot be adequately described by any words.
How is it possible to keep this joy in silence?

Go, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere~~

to be worthy of that image

Today’s gospel (Matthew 5: 43-48) is one of my favourites. It is about loving our enemies and praying for those who persecute us.

If you love those who love you, what right have you to claim any credit? Even the tax collectors do as much, do they not?

I remember how i felt when i first read this. I was ashamed of my little love and self-righteousness.

From then onwards, I realized what You want from me and what You have made me capable of.

Yes, You have made me in Your image.
You are love and so I am.
You love everyone, including those who persecute You, and so i have been made capable of doing the same.
You are perfect, and so i must, in order to be worthy of that image.

It is easy to hate if we view another person as so-and-so. But, when we view that person as a child of our beloved Father and that child, being blinded by the poison of the serpent, is walking towards the brink of the precipice, it renders us incapable of hating but only worry and sorrow. That child who bears the same image as my beloved Father is going to perish. So, I will stretch out my arms to reach him/her. If my arms are not able to reach him/her, my prayers will.

I was meditating upon the 4th mystery of the sorrowful mysteries this afternoon: the carrying of the cross. Jesus was carrying the burden of our sins on his shoulder. He loved us so much that he was even willing to carry this burden for us, this burden of our sins, not his. If the Lord our God who is sinless has carried the burden of our sins on His shoulder, shouldn’t we do the same for our siblings? By carrying the load of their sins in our hearts, it means to always forgive when somebody hurts us and pray for their conversion.

Bishop Robert Baron shared about this unconditional love of God in his video which i love a lot. [23m:40s onwards]

Script:

Love is not a sentiment or feeling. Love is actively willing the good of the other as other. And this is why enemy love is the surest test of love. If I am good to someone who is sure to repay me, then i might simply be engaging in an act of disguised or indirect self-interest. But if i am generous to someone who is my enemy, who is not the least bit interested in responding to me in kind, then i can be sure that i have truly willed his good and not my own. Jesus wants his followers to aspire to the way that God loves. God loves those who love Him and those who hate Him. He loves His friends and His enemies. He gave good things to those who deserve them and those who don’t deserve them.

爱不是一种感情或感觉,爱是就别人的样子愿意别人的善。所以说哀愁人士对爱最确实的检验。如果一个人给我回报,我就对他好,那我所做的可能仅仅是某种隐蔽的或间接的个人利益行为。但如果我对仇人慷慨,他决不会对我有所回报,那么我就是为了他的益处,而非我自己的。耶稣希望他的追随者们遵循天主爱的方式。天主不仅爱那爱他的人,也爱那恨他的人。他爱他的朋友,也爱他的仇人。他将好东西赐予配得的人,也赐予那些不配的人。

Behold, your mother

On the cross, You gave Your beloved mother to us as our mother. You gave her to all of us, including those who persecuted You, so that she will always watch over us as a loving mother and intercede for our needs, just as she did at the wedding of Cana.

If our savior, the Lord, the God has done this for us, so must we do the same, let our mothers bring reconciliation and healing to those who have hurt us.

Will you let me be your servant?

Today, your flower walked into your palace and i was behind her. Thank you, my King, for allowing me to stand behind your flower.

Receive the cross on your forehead. It is Christ himself who now strengthens you with this sign of his love. Learn to know him and follow him.
Receive the sign of the cross on your ears, that you may hear the voice of the Lord.
Receive the sign of the cross on your eyes, that you may see the glory of God.
Receive the sign of the cross on your lips, that you may respond to the word of God.
Receive the sign of the cross over your heart, that Christ may dwell there by faith.
Receive the sign of the cross on your shoulders, that you may bear the gentle yoke of Christ.
Receive the sign of the cross on your hands, that Christ may be known in the work which you do.
Receive the sign of the cross on your feet, that you may walk in the way of Christ.

Here is the hymn that we sang. It is also my prayer for your flower.

 

Will you let me be your servant? Let me be as Christ to you.
Pray that i may have the grace to let you be my servant too.

We are pilgrims on a journey. We are travelers on the road.
We are here to help each other walk the mile and bear the load.

I will hold the Christ light for you in the night-time of your fear.
I will hold my hand out to you, speak the peace you long to hear.

I will weep when you are weeping. When you laugh i’ll laugh with you.
I will share your joy and sorrow till we’ve seen this journey through.

When we sing to God in heaven, we shall find such harmony.
Borne of all we’ve known together of Christ’s love and agony.

Pray that i may have the grace to let you be my servant too.
