2017 China Mission Meeting

thumbnailThe China Mission Meeting of the East Asia Delegation began on October 2, 2017 with fresh dreams about our ministry in Mainland China. This time the venue is the Choc Van Pastoral Center in Coloane, Macao. The meeting began with an exhortation “Let God take over”. All the Claretian Missionaries who are working in Chinese Speaking area were present for the meeting. The main purpose of this China meeting was to think seriously on re-establishing our community there. It was also an opportunity to look concretely the recent developments of the church in China with the perspective of our ministries in the field of vocation promotion and mission. One of the things that came into the discussion was how to coordinate the many works we do in China individually and to redefine and qualify the objectives of our missionary presence in the mainland.

For example, a Spaniard writes his home address starting with the street and finishing with the country while a Chinese does the opposite. When a Spaniard does something he thinks in terms of the result, but a Chinese thinks of the process. I discovered this when the Chinese students laughed at me when I tried to copy a Chinese character.
But all of us have the same dreams, hopes and feelings, and there is a language stronger than all the other languages, a language beyond words or borders. This language is born in the heart of people and is spoken with the eyes, the body… with one’s life.

心靈之聲(五)

4887天主的喜悅透過這個活動真實的體現在我們眼前,或是說我們就在其中。藉由所有神父修士以及修女們謙遜的態度,溫柔的表達,以及堅毅的勇氣,以及所以的夥伴們願意彼此關心包容,耶穌所期許的命令就在此完整實現了---你們要彼此相愛。充斥在歡樂的是信仰,充斥在信仰內的我想就是聖神了吧。
回到台灣後,我們要如何將我們親眼看見的體會的傳遞下去呢?
