H. Exc. Rev. Mons. Luis Antonio G. TAGLE, Archbishop of Manila (PHILIPPINES)

A young girl asked: “Are we the youth lost or has the Church lost us?”. Her question expresses a longing for a Church where she can be found by Jesus and where she can find Him. But for the Church to be the “space” of a faith-encounter with the Lord, she must learn anew from Jesus in whom we meet God.

一个女孩问我说:“主教,是我们青年人丢弃了教会,还是教会丢弃了我们青年人?”她的问题揭示出一个渴望,青年人希望被教会被基督找到的渴望,同时也是能够透过教会找到基督的渴望。但是,为了让教会成为一个人们与主相遇的空间或平台,教会必须要重新从耶稣那里学习,因为,在基督内,我们与天主相遇。

The Church must learn humility from Jesus. God's power and might appears in the self-emptying of the Son, in the love that is crucified but truly saves because it is emptied of self for the sake of others.

教会务必要由耶稣那里学习谦卑的精神。天主的德能是透过基督的自我空虚而完成的。这份自我空虚的爱要求我们为了别人的缘故而自我倒空与自我牺牲。

The Church is called to follow Jesus' respect for every human person. He defended the dignity of all people, in particular those neglected and despised by the world. Loving His enemies, He affirmed their dignity.
教会务必要由耶稣那里学习尊重每一个人。耶稣护守着每一个人的尊严与人格,特别是那些被这个世界所遗忘的以及忽视的人群。透过爱他的仇人,基督展现出对人格的深度肯定。

The Church must discover the power of silence. Confronted with the sorrows, doubts and uncertainties of people she cannot pretend to give easy solutions. In Jesus, silence becomes the way of attentive listening, compassion and prayer. It is the way to truth.

The seemingly indifferent and aimless societies of our time are earnestly looking for God. The Church's humility, respectfulness and silence might reveal more clearly the face of God in Jesus. The world takes delight in a simple witness to Jesus- meek and humble of heart.

教会务必要发现静默的力量。面对着痛苦、怀疑以及未知,教会不应该虚伪地以给出捷径或答案而搪塞。在耶稣内,静默成为了深度聆听、同理心及祈祷的代名词。静默是通往真理的道路。这个看似冷漠与迷茫的社会(世界)其实正在努力地寻找天主。教会的谦卑、尊重以及静默应该会更加清楚地将天主的面容彰显出来。这个世界会因着为良善心谦的基督所做的简朴生活见证而欢欣踊跃。
