Acts 1:1-11; Ephesians 1:17-23; Matthew 28: 16-20. In the first reading, Jesus tells his Apostles that they will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon them, and then he ascends into heaven. In his Letter to the Ephesians, Saint Paul affirms the hope enjoyed by all who believe in the promise and power of Christ. In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus commissions the Apostles to make disciples of all nations, and assures them that he will be with them, always, until the end of the age.

 

Ascensione del Signore

L’Ascensione inaugural la missione della Chiesa. Il Signore Gesù, accolto nella Gloria del padre, ma nascosto alla nostra vista sensibile, abita in noi spiritualmente e continua con noi l’opera di salvezza, dichiarando che siamo destinati all vita eterna

 

耶穌升天節

今天是耶穌升天節,可是今天的福音(瑪竇28:16-20)並沒有提及穌升天的事。但由於其他福音說記述了耶穌被接升天,可以知道祂的確升天了。耶穌復活後四十天和門徒們吃喝談話,祂的光榮隱藏在人性的形象中。直到祂升天之時,祂的光榮才完全顯示出來。現在耶穌再不與自己的信徒以形體同在,卻以精神的方式時常與祂的教會結合,不斷教化指引她,直到世界終窮之日。

臨別之時,他們交給了門徒治理教會的權柄,給他們施洗和赦罪的權柄。祂說:「天上地下的一切權柄都交給了我,所以你們要去使萬民成為門徒,因父、及子及聖神之名給他們授洗。」這一句話說明了天主三位一體的道理,也說明天教會是由宗徒一脈相承地傳下來的。領了洗的人是屬於天主的,和天主有特殊關係。

天主聖父是一切救恩之本,聖子把領了洗的人加入在祂的教會裏,聖神默導教友,使他們明白並有恆地做到耶穌所要求的。

耶穌既然把治理教會的權交給宗徒和他們繼承人,當然也默導他們,使他們代表祂善盡職青,我們服從教會的訓導,就是服從天主。

Discernment involves listening to God, learning about yourself, and seeking the guidance of others. Discernment is not a solitary endeavor. There are two options: In Redwood City on the first Monday of each month, from 6:15 – 8:30PM at St. Pius X Church, 1100 Woodside Rd. Redwood City; In San Francisco on the first Thursday of each month, from 6:15 – 8:30PM at Church of the Epiphany, 826 Vienna Street, San Francisco. The program is Eucharistic Adoration in the church, followed by dinner and discussion in the rectory. For more information, Fr. Tom Martin at martin.thomas@sfarch.org or Fr.

Speaking of Vocations: Could God be Calling Me? YES!: God calls each of us to life, to wholeness, and to service. The task of the young adult is to discern what path God wants him or her to follow.

The Lord calls most people to marriage and family. For the Christian young adult this is a very important decision. Choosing to marry is not just a romantic response, but also a very specific process that includes prayer, investigation, involvement, and experience.

God calls some people to religious life as a Sister, Brother, or Priest. A religious vocation follows the same process. We call this the discernment process. Want to learn more about the Salesian Vocation? Email Fr. John Roche, SDB at jrochesdb@gmail.com
