《綻放在西藏高原上的信仰之花——今日鹽井天主教會團體的現狀與簡析》

在二十一世紀的今天,人類社會因世界日趨多元化,而不得不面對諸多的困難與挑戰。各種思想、文化、信仰和傳統的交流與碰撞,在豐富人類精神世界的同時,也帶來因不同而產生的歧義、矛盾,甚至是分裂與爭鬥;因此,如何促進人與人、國家與國家、團體與團體之間的和平相處,也成為今日各宗教團體一個急迫的使命。不同的宗教之間,以及宗教與不同文化傳承之間,必須通過更多的對話與交流,從而促進彼此的認識與理解,進而達成合作與共融,為人類社會樹立和平的榜樣。在這樣一個時代的呼召背景之下,本文通過對今日西藏鹽井教會——這個身處不同宗教與文化環境中的天主教會團體的簡析,為讀者展現一個活潑的信仰團體的生命見證。通過探討鹽井教友在個人及團體生活中的信仰表達,以及他們與佛教和本地文化的互相影響之下所呈現的特點,本文為讀者指出,宗教與宗教、宗教與文化的多元共存不但可行,更是所有真正宗教團體實踐真理的最終方向。

Liturgical Inculturation in China and Hong Kong 

中國及香港教會禮儀本地化

In Catholic tradition, “the liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the font from which all her power flows. To ensure that the faithful take part fully aware of what they are doing, actively engaged in the rite, and enriched by its effects, it would be worthy to study the various elements involved, which are closely related to liturgical inculturation. Local Churches introduce elements of local cultures into liturgical celebrations. The thing that is needed to bear in mind is to ensure “oneness in diversity” in liturgical traditions, that is, diversified while remaining faithful to the Apostolic Tradition and in communion with the whole Church in matters of faith and liturgy. The theme of this issue is to study the liturgical reform and inculturation in the Catholic Church basing on the experiences of the Churches in Mainland China and in Hong Kong.

The Holy Spirit Study Centre

is an organ of the Diocese of Hong Kong. It was established in 1980 by the late Cardinal John Baptist Wu as an expression of pastoral concern for China and the Church in China. It is a research institute whose primary practical task has been to gather, store and analyze pertinent data about China that will serve to broaden understanding of the Mainland’s rapidly changing situation, and to effect appropriate Christian responses. Facilities at the Centre, which is housed in a wing of the Holy Spirit Seminary in Aberdeen, include offices for its full-time staff and research associates, a library, archives for collected documentation, and meeting rooms. Material is gleaned from over 100 Chinese and English language periodicals and daily newspapers.

This provides both professional researchers and other interested people with a wealth of up-to-date information on what is happening in Mainland China and in the Church in China. The work of the Centre is of particular interest to the Hong Kong Diocese not only because it is the diocese with the largest number of Chinese Catholics in the world, but also because Hong Kong reverted to Chinese sovereignty on 1 July 1997 and has since been governed under the principle of “One Country, Two Systems.”
