Proverbs 8:22-31; Romans 5:1-5; John 16:12-15. Our first reading is a poetic reflection on the wisdom of God being present in all that God does. Saint Paul tells the Romans that they have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. In the Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples that they will come to understand his teachings more fully when they atre filled with the Holy Spirit.
La Santissima Trinita
La Rivelazione insegna che Dio è Uno in tre Persone uguali e distinte, Padre, Filio e Spirito Santo, che si chinano sulla famiglia per aiutarla a essere con il Padre per la vita, con il Figlio per il servizion, con lo Spirito Santo per l’amore, la pace e la santità.
天主聖三節
我們常見天主聖三的圖像大多是:天主聖父是個莊嚴的老人,聖子是復活的基督,一個壯年的男人,坐着或站在聖父的右邊,而聖神通常以鴿子的形像出現,使人想到永恆
我們知道,天主創造萬物,也愛祂所創造的一切,但在所有受祂創造物之中,祂最愛人,亦即愛我們,原祖父母犯了罪、我們犯了罪,背叛了祂,祂仍舊愛我們。祂派祂的聖子來救贖我們,祂不斷召叫我們跟隨祂,祂要聖神指引我們明白真理。
天主三位一體是個奧跡,天主聖父、聖子、聖神是完全相等而各自分明的,「不是三個天主,而是一個天主有三位:同同體的三位。天主三位並不分割同一的天主性,而是每位都是整個的天主……父不是子,子不是父,聖神不是父或子」(《天主教要理》第253-254條)。沒有人能完全懂得這個奧跡,我們祇能以信德去面對。
我們的理智、我們的靈魂,我們的心祇能俯首欽崇敬拜天主三位一體,另一方面,我們也可以在日常生活中看到聖三的形像

以驚奇敬拜的心神看天主所創造的宇宙從而認識天主聖父;默想福音中耶穌的言行去認識,效法聖子;以專注的心神去諦聽聖神,服從祂的指引

From Fr. Gael: The Holy Trinity is a community of LOVE in one continuous flow. The Trinity dwells in the Church today, still flowing in LOVE. I believe that we still have not understood the power of that LOVE. This is what keeps us from in the deepest way becoming the Church Christ calls us to be. The FATHER created us out of LOVE. The SON redeemed us with LOVE. And the SPIRIT dwells in the Church with LOVE. The history of salvation is one in which humanity seems to have a difficulty with truly embracing the power of the LOVE of God. Yet that is our vocation, that is our destiny. The immensity of our vocation to LOVE begins with me, with my embracing and allowing this LOVE to permeate every fiber of my heart and soul. We cannot wait for others to embrace this call. We have to embrace it individually and thereby begin to form a critical mass that can make a difference. The Holy Trinity is a community of LOVE in one continuous flow. Let’s begin to flow with them.

Acts 2: 1-11; I Corinthians 12:3b-7, 12-13 or Romans 8:8-17. John 20: 19-23 or John 145:15-16, 23b-26. In the first reading from Acts, we hear the account of the Holy Spirit coming to rest upon the disciples and followers, enabling them to proclaim the Gospel in many languages. In the second reading, Paul writes to the Corinthians about the variety of gifts and service but one Spirit and Lord. He speaks of the Church as the body of Christ. In the Gospel (in a passage often referred to as ‘John’s Pentecost’), John gives an account of the disciples and their first experience with the living Christ—Christ who breathes on them and tells them to Receive the Holy Spirit.

Domenica Di Pentecoste

Lo Spirito è l’anima della Chiesa che conferisce la vita divina, realizza l’unita organica e assicura la continuità nel tempo. La preghiera che la Chiesa innalza a Dio è ispirata dall’Amore che è lo Spirito Santo.

聖神降臨節(若二十:19-23)

我們都知道,天主聖三的道理非常神妙,聖父、聖子我們還可以領悟,因為我們有父子關係的體驗,但是天主第三位的聖神,在做什麼呢?說祂時時處處在聖化我們,但仍是很難領會。對聖神的解釋也許可以從比喻出發

今天是聖神降臨節,讓我寫出一些聽來的比喻

聖神像空氣一樣,沒有顏色、沒有形像、不聲不響,祂的存在和影響不受我們注意,但祂的確存在。沒有祂,我們活不出教友的生活來

聖神像地球周圍的「大氣層」,保護我們的靈魂。

聖神是氧氣,沒有氧氣我們活不了,聖神使我們不知不覺中每天做好事,聖化我們的生命,使我們活在天主的愛之中

聖神是講話時的口氣,沒有聖神的人可以花言巧語。有學問修養的人講話有特殊的口氣,領受聖神的人講話有天主的「口氣」

聖神是勇氣。領受聖神後的宗徒都有勇氣,不但不怕死,並且承認為耶穌受苦是件光榮的事

聖神是志氣。宗徒跟隨耶穌三年,還是沒有什麼志氣,爭權爭利,也不很和氣,領受聖神後很有志氣,大家相親相愛,同心合力為主服務

聖神是喜氣。聖保祿宗徒歸化前充滿怒氣,四處逮捕基督徒送到官裏,領受聖神後,為耶穌受盡痛苦,仍喜氣洋洋,寫出了格林多前書中優美動人的基督愛的誡命。

聖神是和氣,教會和教友在聖神引導下,以寬恕和睦的態度待人接物

聖神是福氣,聖神降臨在聖母身上,使她敢說:「今後萬世的人要稱我是有福的」

總之,有了聖神充就滿神氣。願我們多求聖神給我們神氣

From Fr. Gael: For the Catholic Church, considered to have been publicly proclaimed on Pentecost Sunday, the nature of the universal call of the Church is its birthright. “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim. Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem.” From its moment of birth as Church, it is steeped in a diversity of languages and peoples from all over Asia Minor. True, it takes a while for the lived reality to catch up with the birthright, and perhaps in some ways we are still coming to an understanding of a universal plan greater than our own limited experience. When, in today’s Gospel Christ appears in the midst of the disciples, twice he proclaims peace to them. They needed peace to cope with the reality which surrounded them. Christ in the Gospel once again proclaims PEACE, but it is to us and we need it now just as much as they needed it then. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Acts 1:1-11; Ephesians 1:17-23 or Hebrews 9:24-28; 10:19-23; Luke 24:46-53. In the first reading, Luke recounts the many times that Jesus presented himself alive to his Apostles, his promise of the Holy Spirit to come, and Jesus being lifted up [where] a cloud took him from their sight. In the second reading, Paul prays that the Ephesians may have wisdom and knowledge of God through the power of the Holy Spirit. In the Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples that they are witnesses to the things that had been written and fulfilled. Then he blesses them and is taken up to heaven.

Ascensione del Signore

Gesù è presente in modi nuovi nella communità di quanti credono nel suo nome: nella Chiesa, nell’Eucaristia e nei Sacramenti. La Chiesa è chiamata a prolungare nel tempo la sua presenza e la sua azione. Cristo asceso in cielo siede alla destra di Dio e nel suo nome sono predicati e testimoniati il perdono dei peccati e la conversione.

From Fr. Gael:

“Men of Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will return in the same way as you have seen him going into heaven.”

These are the words that the angels dressed in white address to those who watched Jesus ascend into heaven. In other words, they were being told that the physical presence of Jesus on earth had ended. A new chapter was beginning, and they were going to be the ones to write it. Jesus left it in their hands. This is the beginning of the Book of Acts which records the growth and development of the Church. Jesus promised them the presence of the Spirit to guide them. That same Spirit has been guiding the Church for centuries and continues to guide it today. Through the centuries the church has dealt with problems and gone through purification of its human frailty. Today, these would be the words of the angels dressed in white: Why are you standing here, go and make the Church all that Christ called it to be!”  –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB
