CHAPTER III.

Journeys to the Nuptial House. — Sufferings on Account of the Profanation of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

第三章

从世界各地前往婚房的朝圣之旅。 ——因亵渎至圣圣体圣事而受的苦难。

Daily during the ecclesiastical year did Sister Emmerich travel to the Holy Land under the care of her angel, who chose the route both going and returning. This he determined by the various tasks she had to fulfil for the sick, the dying, the needy, and the souls in purgatory, in accordance with the order laid down by God. No one was excluded from her charitable ministrations, but the Head of the Church received her chief attention when in need of aid to lighten the burden of his pastoral charge.

在教会礼仪年期间,艾曼丽修女每天都会在她的护守天使的照顾下前往圣地,天使选择了往返的路线。天使按照天主规定的次序,根据艾曼丽修女必须为病人、垂死者、贫困者和炼狱中的灵魂完成的各项任务,来决定该路线。 没有人寻求她的帮助而得不到她的爱心服务,特別是当教会的元首需要帮助以减轻他的牧灵负担时,会得到艾曼丽修女的特别关注。

Rome was as familiar to her as the Holy Land. The Vatican, the various churches of the Eternal City, were as well known to her as the Temple, the Palace of David, the Cenacle, and other Holy Places of Jerusalem. On these journeys she visited those places sanctified by the birth, labors and death of the saints, who frequently appeared to her and gave an account of the various details of their life and sufferings.

罗马对她来说就像圣地一样熟悉。 梵蒂冈,永恒之城的各个圣堂,与耶路撒冷的圣殿、达味王宫、晚餐厅和其他圣地一样为她所熟知。 在这些旅程中,艾曼丽参观了那些因圣人的出生、工作和去世而圣化了的地方,这些圣人经常向她显现,并讲述了他们生活和苦难的各种细节。

Every day brought its own special tasks, its own particular visions on the mysteries connected with the work of Redemption, so that we must not be surprised at her inability to relate all, weighed down as she was by corporal and mental sufferings.

每一天都有当天的特殊任务,都有关于救赎工作的奥秘的独特神视,因此我们不必对她无法讲述所有事情感到惊讶,她已因身体和精神上的痛苦而不堪重负。

The connection between the Church's calendar and Sister Emmerich's mission was close and real ; only the contemplative can understand the multiplicity and variety of action thereby entailed. Although the fragments contained in the following communications are short, they are, nevertheless, most striking and sufficient to convince the reader of the marvellous ways by which this soul was led in the accomplishment of works whose surprising manifestation will redound to the greater glory of God on the Judgment Day.

圣教会的日历和艾曼丽修女的使命之间的联系是密切而真实的; 只有默观者才能理解由此带来的多重性和多样性的行动。尽管以下讯息中包含的片段很短,但它们吸引人注目且足以使读者相信这个灵魂被引导完成工作的奇妙方式,这些工作令人惊讶的展现将在审判之日更大的光荣天主。

July, 1820, she related the following: — "I was commanded to travel over the world in order to see its misery. I went through St. Ludger's vineyard to that of St. Peter, viewing everywhere the sad state of mankind and the Church represented by different degrees of cold, fug, and darkness, though here and there I beheld bright spots and people standing in prayer. I had visions of these individuals.

1820 7 月,艾曼丽讲述了以下内容:「我奉命环游世界,以了解世界的苦难。我经过圣卢杰的葡萄园,来到圣伯多禄的葡萄园,到处看到人类和教会的悲惨状况,以不同程度的寒冷、雾气和黑暗代表着,虽然我偶尔也在这在那看到一些亮点一些站着祈祷的人。我有这些人的神视。

Wherever I went, I was taken to the needy, the abandoned, the sick, the persecuted, the imprisoned, for whom I prayed, aiding and consoling them in many ways. Everywhere I saw the state of the Church, the saints of the countries, Bishops, martyrs, religious, and anchorites — all upon whom the grace of God had descended. I saw especially those who had had visions and what their visions were. I saw them appearing in prayer to others and others to them.

无论我走到哪里,我都被带到需要帮助的人、被遗弃的人、生病的人、受迫害的人、被监禁的人那里,我为他们祈祷,以多种方式帮助和安慰他们。我到处都看到了教会的状况、各国的圣人、主教、殉道者、会士和隐修者——所有这些人都蒙受了天主的恩宠。我特别看到那些有神视异象的人,以及他们的神视是什么。我看到他们在祈祷中向他人显现,别人也显现给他们。

I saw all that they had done, and I understood that the Church has always had such servants, visions, and apparitions. They existed even in the time of promise, constituting one of her richest graces and contributing largely to her welfare and union. I saw everywhere holy bodies lying in tombs. I saw their influence, their connection with the saints, and the blessing emanating from them through their union with their souls.

我看到了他们所做的一切,我明白圣教会一直都有这样的仆人、神视、显现。这些人和事甚至早在主应许的时候就存在,构成了圣教会最丰富的恩宠之一,并在很大程度上为教会的福祉和合做出了贡献。我到处都有看到躺在墓地里的圣骸。我看到了圣骸的影响力,圣骸与诸圣人的联系,以及圣骸与他们灵魂的结合而从圣骸上发出的祝福。

In this immense vision I had scarcely any other joy than that of seeing the Church founded upon a rock, and of knowing that love follows her and imitates Jesus, from which spring eternal blessings. I was told that in the Old Testament God sent angels to men and warned them in dreams. But, after all, that was not so clear and perfect as the spiritual teaching of Christianity — and yet, how faithfully and simply the people of the Old Law followed such divine inspirations ! —

在这个巨大的异象中,我看到教会建立在盘石上,并且知道圣教会始终效法耶稣,耶稣的爱始终伴随圣教会,而耶稣是永恒祝福的泉源,除此以外我没有其他的喜悦。我被告知,在旧约中,天主派天使到人那里,并在梦中警告他们。但是,这毕竟不如基督宗教的属灵教导那么清晰和完美——然而,旧法时代的人们是多么忠实而简单地遵循着这样的神圣启示!

“When I arrive in any country, I generally see in the chief city, as in a central point, its spiritual state indicated by cold, fog, and darkness. I see the headquarters of corruption and pictures of its greatest perils. I understand all. From them I see streams and pools spreading through the land like poisoned veins, and in their midst pious souls in prayer, churches containing the Blessed Sacrament, countless holy bodies, good works being performed, sin expiated or prevented, assistance given to the needy, etc.

「每当我到达任何一个国家,我通常会在这个国家的首要城市就像一个中心点一样看到这个国家的属灵状态,是借由寒冷、雾、和黑暗来显示的。我看到了腐败的总部,和巨大危难的画面。我都明白这一切的意义。从这些画面中,我看到溪流和水池像有毒的血管一样在土地上蔓延,但在这黑暗和危机中,有虔诚的灵魂在保存着至圣圣体无数圣骸的圣堂里祈祷,施行善工、赎罪或防止罪恶,援助有需要的人,等等。

When I see the sins and abominations of a nation, their good and evil works; when I have discovered the source of the poison, the cause of their maladies, I see as a necessary result the suffering, chastisement, destruction they entail and a total or partial cure effected in proportion as the good performed by its own people produces salutary effects, or the charitable efforts of others done for the love of Jesus, bring forth streams of grace and salvation.

当我看到一个国家的罪恶和可憎之事,看到他们的善恶行为;当我发现了毒素的来源,他们致病的原因,我看到他们所招致的痛苦、惩罚、毁灭,都是必然的结果,但是会因自己国家的人民的善行产生有益的效果,或因其他人为爱耶稣做的努力,产生恩宠和救恩的洪流,从而得到全部或部分的治愈。

Over some places sunk in darkness I see destruction floating in threatening pictures; over others are strife and bloodshed darkening the air, and from them frequently issues another striking picture with its own signification. These dangers and chastisements do not stand alone. They are connected with the crimes of other countries ; and thus, sin becomes the rod that strikes the guilty.

在一些陷入黑暗的地方,我看到毁灭以威胁性的画面浮现;在其他地方,冲突和流血使空气变得阴暗,从这些冲突和流血中,经常有意义的惊人画面。这些危险和惩罚并非孤立存在。它们与其他国家的罪行有关;因此,罪成为打击罪人的棍棒。

" Whilst all this appears in dark, earthly pictures over these lands, I see above them the good, luminous germs giving rise to other pictures like a world of light, representing what is done for it by its holy members through the treasures of grace they pour out upon it from the merits of Jesus Christ. I see above desecrated churches other churches floating in light, and I see the Bishops, doctors, martyrs, intercessors, prophets and all the privileged souls that once belonged to them ; pictures of their miracles, graces, visions, revelations, and apparitions pass before me; and I see their influence far and near, the effects it produced even at the most remote distances.

「虽然在这些地区呈现的都是黑暗、世俗的画面,但我看到在它们之上的另一些画面中生出美好的、光明的萌芽,就像一个光明的世界,代表其中的神圣成员,通过他们恩宠的宝藏为这世界所做的一切,他们将从耶稣基督的功劳中获得的恩宠宝藏,倾泻到这个世上。我看到被亵渎的圣堂上方漂浮着光,我看到主教、圣师、殉道、代祷者、先知和所有曾经被赋予特恩的灵魂;这些各国各地圣徒们的圣迹 ,圣宠,异象,启示和显现的画面在我面前掠过;我看到他们的影响遍及远近各处,即使在最遥远的地方也能产生影响。

A blessing still lingers over the paths they have trodden, since they are still united with their country and flock through pious souls who keep their memory alive. I see that their bones, wherever they rest, are in mysterious communication with them and become the sources of their loving intercession.

祝福仍然萦绕在这些各国各地圣徒们走过的道路上,因为各地的圣徒们仍然与自己的国家联结在一起,他们与虔诚的信徒聚集在一起,并且让虔诚信徒的记忆活出来我看到,他们的圣髑,无论在何处安息,都与虔诚的灵魂进行神秘的交流,成为他们爱心代祷的源泉。

(译者注:由于艾曼丽的灵被带往各地看到世界及人类的悲惨,因着罪恶,在属灵上许多国家呈现的都是黑暗,然而因着各国各地的圣徒(圣师、殉道、代祷者、先知)被赋予的恩宠而影响了各国,至今祝福仍在圣徒们走过的道路上,因为各国各地的圣徒与自己的国家联结在一起,他们与虔诚的信徒聚集在一起 而使得虔诚信徒的记忆永活出来。)

Unless supported by God's grace, one could not contemplate such misery and abomination side by side with so great mercy and love — one would die of grief.

除非得到天主的恩宠支持,否则一个人无法在默观如此悲惨和可憎的画面的同时又默观如此伟大慈悲和爱的画面——因为人会死于悲伤的。

“If on the road there are some needy souls for whom the Lord deigns to receive the prayers of a poor creature, I am conducted to them and I behold the cause of their misfortunes. I draw near to their bed if they sleep, I approach them if awake, and I offer to God a fervent prayer for them that He may receive from me in their behalf what they cannot, or know not how to do for themselves.

「如果在路上遇到一些需要帮助的灵魂,天主愿意接受一个可怜人的祈祷,我就会被带到他们身边,我会看到他们不幸的原因。如果他们睡着了,我就靠近他们的床,如果他们醒着,我就接近他们,我为他们向天主热切地祈祷,因为他们不能或不知如何为自己祈祷。

I often have to take upon myself a part of their sufferings. Sometimes they are people who have implored the prayers of others, or even my own, and this is the reason I have to take these journeys ; they are all for my neighbor's relief. Then I see the poor creatures turning to God, from whom they receive consolation and all that they need, rarely in a miraculous way, but by ordinary though often unexpected means.

我经常不得不承担他们的一部分痛苦。有时,他们是恳求他人祈祷的人,甚至是恳求我的代祷,这就是我必须踏上这些旅程的原因;这些旅程都是为了救济我的近人。然后,我看到这些可怜的人转向天主,他们从天主那里得到了安慰和他们所需要的一切,很少以奇迹般的方式,而是通过普通的方式,但经常是意想不到的方式。

This shows that corporal and spiritual distress comes most frequently from man himself who, instead of turning like a child to beg and receive help from the ever-open Hand of God, shuts himself up in himself incredulous and defiant. My intervention, I who have the gift of seeing, is in itself the Hand of God that sends to many a blind, closed heart one who sees, who is open to the light, who is as a channel for His plenteous mercy.

这表明,肉体和精神上的痛苦最常来自人自己,他没有像孩子一样乞求并接受天主永远敞开的援手,而是将自己封闭在怀疑和反叛之中。我的介入——我有看见的恩赐——这本身就是天主之手,向许多盲目、封闭的心派去一个能看见的人,向光敞开的人,成为分施祂丰盛慈悲渠道的人。

On these journeys I am often directed to hinder sin by intervening to strike terror into, to disconcert some evil-minded person. I have more than once aroused mothers whose infants were in need of them, or in danger of being smothered either by themselves, or drowsy nurses, etc."

在这些旅程中,我经常被指示通过干预来阻止罪恶,使一些心怀恶意的人感到恐惧和不安。我曾不止一次地唤醒那些需要照顾婴孩的母亲,她们的婴孩需要她们,婴孩有被她们自己或昏昏欲睡的保姆闷死,等等。」

" I went over Ludger's vineyard (Minister) where I found things in a miserable state, as usual ; through that of St. Liborius (Paderborn) in which I last labored and which I found improved ; and then by the place where lie Nepomecene, Wenceslas, Ludmilla, and other saints. This place is full of holy remains, but there are few pious priests among the living, and I saw that the good, holy people generally live hidden.

「我经过卢杰的葡萄园(明斯特),发现那里的情况像往常一样糟糕;又经过我上次在那里工作、并发现有所改善的圣利博里乌斯的葡萄园(帕德博恩);然后到了内波穆克, 瓦茨拉夫、卢德米拉和其他圣人安葬的地方。这里到处都是圣洁的遗体,但活人中很少有虔诚的司铎,我看到善良、圣洁的人们通常都隐居。

1.jpg

内波穆克.若望Nepomecene 1345 年 - 1393 年 3 月 20 日是波希米亚(捷克共和国)的圣人,他是 在波希米亚的瓦茨拉夫四世的命令下淹死在伏尔塔瓦河。   后来的记载说他是波希米亚女王的告解神父,因拒绝透露告解的秘密而被害。 根据这一说法,内波穆克的若翰被认为是告解之印的第一殉道者,是反对诽谤的主保,并且由于他的殉道方式,是洪水和溺水的保护者。

2.png

瓦茨拉夫一世Wenceslas(911 – 935 年 9 月 28   日或 929 年),瓦茨拉夫一世是波希米亚的公爵,他的殉道和几部传记的流行使他以英勇的美德而闻名,这导致他被提升为圣徒。他死后被宣布为国王,并被视为捷克国家的守护神。

3.jpg

波希米亚的卢德米拉Ludmilla   (c. 860 – 921 年 9 月 15 日) 是捷克圣徒和殉道者,受到东正教和罗马天主教徒的崇敬。 她出生在梅尔尼克,是索布王子斯拉维博尔的女儿。 圣卢德米拉是圣瓦茨拉夫的祖母,他被广泛称为好国王瓦茨拉夫。   圣卢德米拉在她死后不久就被册封了。 作为封圣过程的一部分,925 年,温塞斯劳斯将她的遗体移至布拉格的圣乔治大教堂。





I went southward to a great city (Vienna) with a high tower, around which are many streets and avenues ; a broad river flows by the city (the Danube). I turned to the left into a high mountainous district (Tyrol), where dwell many pious souls, especially in the thinly settled parts. Still journeying toward the south, I arrived at a city on the sea (Venice) in which I lately saw St. Ignatius and his companions, St. Mark and other saints; but great corruption prevails there. I went into Ambrose's vineyard (Milan) and there I saw many visions and graces granted to St. Ambrose, and especially his influence over St. Augustine. I learned many things about him, his knowledge of a person who possessed in some degree the gift of recognizing relics.

我向南走,来到一座大城市(维也纳),城中有一座高塔,周围有许多街道和林荫道;一条宽阔的河流(多瑙河)从城中流过。我向左转,进入一个高山地区(台罗尔),那里居住着许多虔诚的灵魂,尤其是在人烟稀少的地方。我继续向南行进,到达了一座海滨城市(威尼斯),在那里,我最近看到了圣依纳爵和他的同伴们,还有圣马尔谷和其他圣人,但那里腐败盛行。我去了安博罗削的葡萄园(米兰),在那里。我看到了许多赐予圣安博罗削的异象和圣宠,尤其是他对圣奥古斯丁的影响。我了解了许多关于他的事情,他是一个在某种程度上拥有辨认圣髑天赋的人。

4.png

米兰的圣安博罗削St. Ambrose(339 – 397),是米兰主教、神学家和政治家。他以公众人物的身份突出自己,大力推动拉丁教会反对阿里乌主义和异教。他的讲道、他的行动和他的文学作品,以及他创新的音乐圣咏,使他成为 4 世纪最有影响力的教会人物之一。传统认为安布罗斯发展了对经,称为安布罗圣咏,并创作了“Te Deum”咏调。他还对圣奥斯定(354-430)的皈依和成圣产生了显著的影响。

— I had visions on this point and I think the saint has referred to it in a book. I learned, also, that no one ever had this faculty so fully as God has imparted it to me, and this because of the shameful neglect of relics, and because the veneration of them must be renewed. I saw as I went south an incredible number of churches and saints favored with various graces.

——关于这一点(指圣髑),我曾有过神视,我想圣安博罗削在一本书中提到过。我还了解到,从来没有人像天主赋予给我的那样,完全拥有这种能力。这是因为人们对圣髑的可耻的忽视,也因为对圣髑的敬礼必须重新开始。当我一路向南走时,我看到了数量惊人的圣堂和被赐予各种恩宠的圣人们。

I saw clearly the works, visions, apparitions of St. Benedict and his companions ; the two Catherines of Sienna and Bologna, Clare of Montefalco, their visions and apparitions. During my great vision in the diocese of St. Ambrose, it seemed to me that the saint spoke from heaven, for I saw the influence and ministry of women and virgins in the Church through the gift of contemplation, apparition, and prophecy, and he said something on the discernment of true and false visions ; but I cannot repeat his words.

我清楚地看到了圣本笃和他同伴的工作、神视和显现;西耶纳和博洛尼亚的两位加大利纳,蒙特法尔科的克莱尔,她们的神视和显现。在圣安博罗削教区的伟大神视中,在我看来,圣人似乎是从天上对我说话的,因为我看到了圣妇和贞女通过默观、显现、和预言的恩宠在教会中的事奉和影响,圣安博罗削说了一些关于辨别真假神视的话; 但我无法重复他的话。

I ought to say that in the different countries I generally saw holy Bishops in the first rank, then priests, monks, nuns, hermits, and laics. I saw the apparitions of saints to them in their lifetime and in time of pressing need, when they bore them counsel and consolation from God. I saw in this great country Magdalene di Pazzi and Rita of Cassia, and many of Catherine of Sienna's visions, missions, etc.

我应该说,在不同的国家,我通常看到圣洁的主教排在第一层,然后是神父、修士、修女、隐修者和平信徒。我看到圣人们在他们有生之年和迫切需要的时候向他们显现,为他们提供了来自天主的忠告和安慰。我在这个伟大的国家看到了玛达肋纳..帕齐和卡西亚的圣丽达,以及西耶娜的加大利纳的许多神视、使命等。

.帕奇Magdalene di   Pazzi于 1566 4 2 日出生于意大利佛罗伦萨最富有和最杰出的贵族家庭之一。九岁时,家庭司铎教德帕齐如何默想,德帕齐开始通过自我鞭笞练习克制肉体,戴着带刺的金属丝带,戴着自制的荆棘冠冕。她在 10 岁时初领圣体,并在同年发誓要成为童贞。十二岁时,她在母亲面前经历了她的第一次神魂超拔。从那时起,她继续展示她认为是许多不同的神秘经历。1580 年,14 岁的德帕齐选择了佛罗伦萨的圣玛利亚.德利安杰利.加尔默罗修道院,因为那里的规定允许她每天领受圣体。 1583 1 30 日初学,取名玛达肋纳。口述五卷神秘启示,曾预言教宗良十一就任,常显奇迹。1607525日去世。1668年册封,尸身不腐。-----译者注

522 圣妇丽达(St. Rita of   Cascia

圣丽达1381年生于意大利亚平宁山区的卡西亚城。她的一生,以三种身份修务卓越的圣德。首先,在家时,以女儿的身份,修德立功;之后,嫁了丈夫,以妻子的身份,修德立功;最后离俗修道,以修女的身份,修德立功。丽达在一切事上,都以热爱吾主的心为出发点和归宿。一有空暇,就默想耶稣苦难的道理。丽达于公元1457522日安逝。遗体在最近一次启棺检视时,还是完好无损,没有腐烂。她死后,无数的奇迹发生了,都是经过她的转求而得到的,人们称她是全能的圣女1900524日教宗良第十三将她列入圣品。-----译者注

22.jpg

西耶娜的加大利纳Catherine of Sienna's是一位意大利神秘而虔诚的平信徒,通过广泛的写信和宣传参与教皇和意大利政治。 她于 1461 年被封为圣徒,因其广泛的神学著作而被尊为圣人和教会圣师。 她也被认为对意大利文学产生了影响。

 

 

 “I came to the church of Peter and Paul (Rome) and saw a dark world of distress, confusion, and corruption, through which shone countless graces from thousands of saints who there repose. Could I relate but a portion of what I saw in this central point of the Church, it would furnish material for a lifelong meditation. Those Popes whose relics I possess I saw most distinctly. — I must have some of Callistus I., the seventeenth Pope, which I have not yet found This Pope had many apparitions.

「我来到圣伯多禄和圣保禄(罗马)的圣堂,看到了一个充满苦难、混乱和腐败的黑暗世界,而在这里的黑暗世界里却安息着成千上万的圣人,他们闪耀着无数的恩宠。既便我只讲述我在圣教会这个中心点看到的一部分内容,它也将会成为我终生默想的素材。我最清楚地看到了那些我拥有其圣髑的教宗。––我一定有第十七任教宗加里多一世的圣髑,但我还没有找到。这位教宗曾多次显现。

7.png

 

教宗圣加理多一世(拉丁语:Sanctus   Callistus PP. I;?-约223年),约218年-约223年在位。----译者注

 

 

 

I saw John the Evangelist's death and his appearing to Callistus, once with Mary and once with Our Saviour, to strengthen him in time of need. I saw several apparitions made to Xystus, of whom I have a relic, and numberless others of the Apostles and disciples to one another and to their successors, giving them warning in times of distress. In these apparitions I saw a certain order of rank and dignity and their correspondence to the needs of him who received them.

我看到圣史若望的去世,以及他向加里多都显现,一次是他与圣母玛利亚一起显现给加里多都,另一次是他与我们的救主一起显现 ,都是在加里多都需要时给他力量。我看到若望有几次显现给西斯都,我有西斯都的圣髑,我还看到无数其他的宗徒和门徒相互之间显现,并显现给他们的继任者,在危难的时候向他们发出警告。在这些显现中,我看到了某种等级和尊严的秩序,以及这些显现与接受者需求的对应关系。

教宗西斯都一世Xystus (42 124/126/128),也拼写为 Xystus,希腊血统的罗马人,是公元 100 年的罗马第七任主教。直到115 年去世。他通过了以下三项法令:

§ 除圣职人员外,任何人不得触摸圣器;

§ 被传召到罗马教廷的主教在返回后,除非出示宗座信件,否则不得被教区接待;

§ 在弥撒序言之后,神父应与信众一起诵念《圣圣圣》----译者注

The messengers from the Church Triumphant are delegated with due regard to the importance of the occasion on which they are sent, and not in accordance with the blind judgment of the world. With regard to the gift of recognizing relics, I mast add that St. Praxedes possessed it to a certain degree.

来自凯旋教会的使者被委派时,是充分考虑到他们被派去场合的重要性,而不是根据世界的盲目判断。关于识别圣髑的恩赐,我要补充一点,圣巴西德在一定程度上拥有这恩赐。

译者注:人们对圣巴西德St. Praxedes(或普拉克塞德斯 Práxedes 知之甚少, 相传巴西德是Saint   Pudentiana的姐姐;她们的兄弟是圣多纳图斯和圣弟茂德。在迫害时期之一,她们埋葬基督徒的尸体并向穷人分发物品。 De Voragine 的简短描述称他们于 165 年去世,在皇帝马库斯和安东尼二世的统治下

 

 

“I saw the Holy Father surrounded by traitors and in great distress about the Church. He had visions and apparitions in his hour of greatest need. I saw many good pious Bishops; but they were weak and wavering, their cowardice often got the upper hand. I saw the black fellow plotting again, the destroyers attacking the Church of Peter, Mary standing with her mantle over it, and the enemies of God put to flight.

「我看到教宗被叛教者包围,为圣教会忍受极大的痛苦。在教宗最需要的时候,他有异象和显现。我看到了许多虔诚的好主教;但他们软弱而动摇,他们的懦弱往往占上风。我看到那个黑家伙再次密谋,破坏者袭击伯多禄大殿,圣母玛利亚披着外氅站在大殿上,天主的敌人逃跑了。

I saw Sts. Peter and Paul laboring actively for the Church and their basilica greatly enlarged. Then I saw darkness spreading around and people no longer seeking the true Church. They went to another, saying : ‘All is more beautiful, more natural here, better regulated ' — but, as yet, I have seen no ecclesiastic among them. I saw the Pope firm, but greatly perplexed.

我看到了圣伯多禄和圣保禄积极为教会工作,他们的大教堂极大地扩展。然后我看到黑暗四处蔓延,人们不再寻求真正的教会。他们走到另一个地方,说:「这里的一切都更美丽、更自然、更规范。」——但是,到目前为止,我还没有看到他们中间有圣职人员。我看到教宗是很坚定的,但又很困惑。

The treaty thought to be so advantageous to us will be of no use ; things will go from bad to worse. The Pope shows more energy now; he has been advised to hold out till death, and this he gained by his late act of firmness. But his last orders are of no account, he enforces them too feebly. I saw over the city terrible evils from the north.

被认为对我们如此有利的协定将毫无用处;事情会越来越糟。教宗现在表现出更多的活力;有人建议他坚持到死,而他最近表现出的坚定态度也让他做到了这一点。但是他最后的命令无足轻重,他执行得太无力了。我从这座城市上空看到了来自北方的可怕邪恶。

" Thence I went over water in the midst of which lie islands with their good and evil ; the most insolated are the happiest, the brightest. I travelled westward into Xavier's country (Portugal) where I saw many saints and the whole land full of soldiers in red. The master was toward the south beyond the sea. This country was pretty tranquil compared with that of St. Ignatius, which I now entered and found in frightful misery.

「我从那里越过海面,海中有岛屿,有好有坏;最孤独的岛屿的是最幸福的,最明亮的。我向西行进到沙勿略的国家(葡萄牙),在那里我看到了许多圣人,整个国家到处都是身穿红装的士兵。君主去了海的南边。与圣依纳爵的国家相比,这个国家相当安宁,我现在进入圣依纳爵的国家并发现它陷入了可怕的痛苦之中。

Darkness lay over the whole land where reposes the treasure of the saint's graces and merits. I was at the central point, and I recognized the place where long before I had had a vision of people cast into a fiery furnace around which their enemies were gathered ; but they who had kindled the flames were themselves consumed by them (1).

黑暗笼罩着整个大地,那里安放着圣人的圣宠和功劳的宝藏。我在中心点,我认出了那个地方,很久以前我曾看到人们被扔进一个火炉,周围聚集着他们的敌人。但那些点燃火焰的人自己也被大火吞噬了(1)。

(1) The preceding March Sister Emmerich had seen under the symbol of a burning furnace into which the innocent were cast, the condemnation of the good, the destruction of faith and morals in the country of St. Ignatius ; and she understood that they who prepared the ruin of the innocent should share the fate of their victims.

 (1) 三月上旬,艾曼丽修女在圣依纳爵的国家里,看到了无辜者被扔进燃烧的熔炉的象征,看到了善良的人被谴责,看到了信仰和道德的破坏;她明白,那些准备毁灭无辜者的人应该分担受害者的命运。

I saw unheard-of abominations spreading over the land, and my guide said to me : ‘This is Babel!’ — I saw throughout the whole country a chain of secret societies with influences at work like those of Babel. They were connected with the building of the tower by a web fine as that of a spider, which extended up through all ages. Its highest blossom was the diabolical woman Semiramis.

我看到闻所未闻的可憎之物在这片土地上蔓延,我的天使对我说:「这里是巴貝耳塔!」——我在全国看到了一连串的秘密社团,其影响力与巴貝耳塔一样。秘密社团与塔的建筑通过一张蜘蛛网般的细网连接起来,一直延伸到各个时代。它最高的花朵是恶魔般的女人塞米拉米斯。

I saw all going to ruin, sacred things destroyed, impiety and heresy flowing in. A civil war was brewing and a destructive internal crisis was at hand. I saw the former labors of innumerable saints, as well as the saints themselves, of whom I shall mention only Isidore, John of the Cross, Jane of Jesus, and chiefly Teresa, many of whose visions I saw. I was shown the labors of St. James whose tomb is on a mountain. I saw what numbers of pilgrims here find salvation.

我看到一切都将败坏,神圣的事物被破坏,不敬虔和异端流入。一场内战正在酝酿,一场破坏性的内部危机即将来临。我看到了无数圣人从前的工作,也看到了圣人本人,其中我将只提及伊西多尔、圣十字若望、耶稣的简,其中主要是大德兰,我看到了他们的许多神视。我看到了圣雅各伯的工作,他的坟墓在山上。我看到有多少朝圣者在这里找到了救赎。

圣依西多禄Isidore(西班牙语:San Isidro 或 San Isidoro de Sevilla,拉丁语:Isidorus Hispalensis,560年-636年)是西班牙6世纪末7世纪初的教会圣人,神学家。依西多禄生于西班牙地中海沿岸城市卡塔赫纳,两个哥哥皆为主教。他曾长期担任塞维亚总主教,劝化西哥德人归化天主教。著有20卷的类百科全书《词源》,历史学著作《哥德族历史》,自然科学著作《天文学》、《自然地理》等许多作品。636年,逝世于塞维亚。1722年被封为教会圣师。[1]---—译者注

圣雅各伯大殿

The Shrine of The Apostle Saint James The Great

 

in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia   in northwestern Spain.

 

二千年来据传圣雅各伯宗徒安葬于此,如今艾曼丽的神视证实此说。






My guide pointed out Montserrat. He showed me the old hermits who formerly dwelt there, and I had a touching vision of them. They never knew the day of the week. They counted time by dividing a loaf into seven parts of which they ate one part each day. Sometimes when in ecstasy, they made a mistake of a whole day. The Mother of God used to appear and tell them what to announce to men.

我的天使指出了蒙特塞拉特。他向我展示了从前居住在那里的老隐士,我有一个关于他们的感人神视。他们从来不知道周几。他们通过将一条面包分成七份来计算时间,他们每天吃一份。有时在神魂超拔中,他们计错了一整天。天主之母曾经显现给他们并告诉他们要向人们宣布什么。

I saw such misery in this country, so many graces trodden under foot, so many saints and their visions, that the thought arose in my mind : ' Why must I, miserable sinner, see all this ? The greater part of it I cannot understand, much less relate' — then spoke my guide: ‘Repeat what thou canst ! Thou knowest not how-many souls will one day read it and be consoled, reanimated, and encouraged by it.

我看到这个国家(西班牙),有如此多的圣人和他们的神视,但却如此悲惨,如此多的恩宠被践踏,以至于我的脑海中出现了这样的想法:『为什么是我,我这可怜的罪人,必须看到这一切呢?我无法理解大部分内容,更不用说讲述了。』——然后我的天使说:『复述你所能讲述的!你不知道有多少灵魂有一天会读到它,并从中得到安慰、振作和鼓舞。

There are numerous accounts of similar graces, but sometimes they are not related as they should be. Ancient things are distasteful to the people of this age, or they are often maliciously misrepresented. What you relate will be published in a better way, and will be productive of blessings far greater than you can imagine.' — This consoled me, as for a few days I had bean discouraged and scrupulous.

关于类似的恩宠的记载,不胜枚举,但有时却没有得到应有的重视。古代的事情对这个时代的人来说是令人反感的,或者它们经常被恶意歪曲。你所讲述的将会以更好的方式被发表,并且会产生远比你想象的更大的祝福。』 ——这让我感到安慰,因为这几天我心灰意冷,顾虑重重。

“From this unhappy land I was taken over the sea, a little toward the north, to an Island in which St. Patrick had been (Ireland) and here I found faithful, sincere Catholics, but very much oppressed. They held relations with the Pope, but very secretly, and there was still much good in the country because the people were united. I had an instruction at this point on the communion of the Church's members.

「从这片令人不愉快的土地出发,我被带到了海上,向北走了一段路,到了一个圣巴特利爵曾经居住过的岛屿(爱尔兰),在这里我找到了忠实、真诚的天主教徒,但他们受到了很大的压迫。他们与教宗保持效忠关系,但非常秘密,由于人民团结一致,这个国家仍然有很多美好的事物。在这一点上,我得到了一个关于教会成员共融的指示。

13.jpg

 

 

圣巴特利爵St. Patrick是爱尔兰的主保圣人。他生于389年,相传他祖籍是罗马,世居英伦三岛。圣巴特利爵为了爱尔兰民族的劝化工作,风尘仆仆,不辞辛苦;到处建造教堂,创立修院,以培植神职人才。他的工作获得了很大的收获,被劝化的异教徒,不计其数。爱尔兰整个民族,最终依赖圣人的努力,全部皈依了真教。巴特利爵于461年安然逝世。圣人去世时,爱尔兰已获得圣人岛的美称。——译者注

 

 

I saw St. Patrick and many of his works. I learned much of his history, and I saw some pictures of the great vision of purgatory he once had in a cave, when he recognized many of the poor souls whom he afterward delivered. The Blessed Virgin used to appear and instruct him what to do.

我看到了圣巴特利爵和他的许多善功。我了解了他的大部分历史,还看到了一些他曾经在山洞里看到的关于炼狱的伟大神视的图像,当时他认出了许多后来他解救的可怜的灵魂。圣母常常显现给他并指示他该怎么做。。

"From St. Patrick's island I crossed a narrow sea to another large island (England), dark, cold, and foggy, in which I saw, here and there, a band of pious sectarians ; but, for the rest, all was great confusion, the whole nation divided into two parties and engaged in dark, disgusting intrigues. The more numerous part was the more wicked. The smaller one had the soldiers on their side and, though better than the other, yet it was not of much account.

「从圣巴特利爵岛,我穿过一片狭窄的海域,来到另一个大岛(英格兰),那里阴暗、寒冷、雾蒙蒙的我到处看到一群群虔诚的宗派信徒;但对其他人来说,一切都非常混乱,整个国家分裂为两派,暗中勾心斗角,人数多的那部分人更加邪恶人数较少的一方有士兵支持,虽强于对方,却无足轻重 .

I saw the two parties struggling together and the smaller one victorious ; but there was abominable scheming going on, every one seemed a spy to watch and betray his neighbor. Above this land I saw a host of God's friends of former times, so many holy kings, Bishops, and apostles of Christianity who left their homes to labor among us in Germany : St. Walburga, King Edward, Edgar, and St. Ursula, and I learned that the tradition which makes the 11,000 virgins an army of maidens, is not true.

我看到双方相互作战,少数方获胜;但有可恶的阴谋正在进行,每个人都像是监视和背叛他近人的间谍。在这片土地上,我看到了许多万军上主昔日的朋友,许多圣王、主教和基督教宗徒,他们背井离乡来到德国,与我们一起工作:圣沃尔布加、爱德华国王埃德加,和圣乌尔苏拉,我了解到,使 11,000 名贞女成为少女军旅的传说是不真实的。

14.jpg

 

圣沃尔布加St. Walburga也称为沃尔普加(Walpurga),是一位盎格鲁撒克逊传教士,曾游历法兰克王国。870年,教宗亚德二世将她册封为圣人,纪念圣日为51日。___译者注

圣女乌尔苏拉St. Ursula是4世纪不列颠国王(西南部杜姆诺尼亚的戴诺涂斯Dionotus of Dumnonia)的女儿,一位笃信基督教的公主,却被许配给阿莫瑞卡(现法国的一部分)一位异教徒柯南·麦瑞多克(Conan Meriadoc)。虔诚的乌尔苏拉公主开出了结婚的条件:婚期延后三年,以达成她前去罗马朝圣的愿望。三年中,她便与十名贵族贞女为伴,开始她们的朝圣之旅。不仅如此,这十一位童贞女,还各自带领一千名童贞女同行前往罗马朝圣。她和她的侍女们到了罗马见了教皇Cyriacus(该教皇名字在罗马教宗的纪录里不可考,纪录里384年的教皇是Siricius)和拉文那的主教Sulpicius。归途中,一场暴风雨把她们带到了高卢人的港口,11艘船就经荷兰进入多瑙河来到了科隆,在此地被入侵的匈奴王阿提拉(Attila,   King of the Huns)所率领的匈奴人袭击,阿提拉欲霸占乌尔苏拉公主,遭到反抗,最终包括乌尔苏拉公主在内的11000位贞女一同殉道。如今我们看到的科隆市徽,其中的11滴眼泪即代表了殉难的11位领队圣女。 --------译者注

 

They were a kind of confraternity like our own charitable associations, and they did not go all together to Cologne for some of them dwelt widely apart. I saw great misery in the cold, foggy country, wealth, crime, and ships.

她们的团体是一种类似我们的慈善协会的团体,她们并没有一起去(德国)科隆,因为她们中的一些人住得很远。我还在这寒冷、多雾的国家(英格兰)里看到了巨大的痛苦财富、犯罪和往来的船只。

“I continued my journey eastward over the sea into a cold country in which I saw Sts. Bridget, Canute, and Eric (Sweden and Denmark). It was poorer, in a more tranquil state than the last, but it, also, was dark and foggy. It is a land rich in iron, but not fertile. I do not remember what I did or saw here ; the inhabitants were all staunch Protestants.

「我继续东行,越过大海,进入一个寒冷的国家,在那里我见到了圣毕哲、圣克努特和埃里克( 瑞典和丹麦)。那里比上一个国家更贫穷,更宁静,但也是一片黑暗,雾气弥漫。这是一片富含铁元素的土地,但并不肥沃。我不记得在这里做了什么或看到了什么;这里的居民都是坚定的新教徒。

19.jpg

瑞典籍的圣女毕哲(St.   Bridget),一直渴望知道,主耶稣在苦难中,为我们承受了多少创伤。有一天,在罗马圣保禄大殿内,耶稣在十字架上显现给她说:「我的身体受到5480个伤害,如果你想为它们作补赎,妳就在一年里,每天诵念十五篇天主经、十五篇圣母经、及十五篇祈祷文。当一年届满,妳就弥补了我的每个伤痛。」 随后,耶稣亲口教导圣女这十五篇祈祷文。   一八六二年五月三十一日,教宗庇护九世,正式批准这些经文。同时表示,它们对人灵确有帮助。虽然这些经文应每天诵念,但如有重大原因而缺念一天时,也不会失去特恩,但必须在一年内,念足5480首经文。念满一年后,要朝拜我所有的圣伤。(即念五伤经和耶稣圣伤串经,最好能拜苦路)。

克努特四世Canute(c.1042 – 1086 年 7 月 10 日),从 1080 年到 1086 年是丹麦国王。克努特是一位雄心勃勃的国王,他寻求加强丹麦君主制,坚定地支持罗马天主教会,并设计了英国王位。 1086 年被叛军杀害,他是第一位被册封的丹麦国王。 1101年,他被罗马天主教主教会承认为丹麦的守护神。

 

18.jpg

 

 

 

瑞典国王埃里克Eric九世,同时也是瑞典的守护圣人,因其对天主教信仰的推广,所以死后被封圣。在埃里克九世刚上台时,瑞典仍是个异教与天主教信仰并存的社会;乌普萨拉,瑞典的当时首都,也是异教信仰的中心,在埃里克九世的努力下,终于终结了异教信仰,乌普萨拉也一变为瑞典天主教信仰的中心,以后瑞典教会在脱离丹麦教会的管辖后,大主教座堂也就定于此地;埃里克九世也是第一位由主教膏立为王的瑞典国王。传说,他在1157年率领瑞典十字军远征芬兰,出发前埃里克九世向天祝祷,祈求胜利,这时他看见天上的金色阳光在蓝天中,呈现出十字光芒,于是引以为吉兆,因而以此为徽号,这便是瑞典国旗的由来。1157年,这位虔诚的国王在一次礼拜结束,步出教堂后,遭到了敌对派系的暗算,不幸身亡。埃里克九世死后获得罗马教宗追赠为圣人,而他也成为了瑞典的守护圣人。




 

Then I passed into an immense dark country subject to great tempests and full of wickedness. The inhabitants are excessively proud. They build great churches (Russia) and think themselves in the right way. I saw them every-where arming and working ; all was dark and menacing. I saw St. Basil and others. I saw the fellow lurking near the shining palace. I went now on to the south, etc…… "

然后我进入了一个巨大的黑暗国家,遭受了巨大的暴风雨,那里充满了邪恶。那里的本地居民非常骄傲。他们建造了巨大的教堂(俄罗斯),并自以为自己的信仰是正确的。我看到他们到处在武装和工作;一切都是黑暗而危险的。我看到了圣巴兹尔和其他人。我看到那个家伙潜伏在闪亮的宫殿附近。我现在向南走,等……。」

巴西略教父St. Basil the   Great,圣师 (330-379)。330年时诞生于小圣巴西略亚细亚的凯撒肋雅(Caesarea 今土耳其的东南方).他的父母皆出生贵族,且信仰甚笃,后来亦被教会册封为圣人。这个圣善的家庭育有十个子女,其中就有四位是教会公开列品的圣人(除了圣巴西略外,还包括与圣巴西略,圣额我略纳齐盎齐名的圣额我略尼沙St.   Gregory of Nyssa 335-394). 为东方的隐修制度而言,圣巴西略的地位就如同圣本笃之於西方教会一样.他所订下的原则,至今对东方教会的隐修制度仍有着莫大的影响.当圣人决定按福音的贫穷劝谕开始修道生活时,他已走在一条成为知名教父的路上了。

To China, as we may judge from her description of the country, where she beheld many early martyrs and apostles of Christianity and the good effected in her own day by the efforts of the Dominicans. She visited the scene of the labors and death of St. Thomas, as also that of St. Francis Xavier and his companions; and she traversed the isles in which the light of the Gospel is now breaking.

对于中国,我们可以从她对这个国家的描述中判断,在那里她看到了许多早期的基督徒殉道者和宗徒,以及在她那个时代道明会的努力所带来的福音善果。她参观了圣多默(宗徒)的工作和殉道的现场,以及圣方济沙勿略和他同伴工作的地方;她穿越了那些岛屿,現在福音之光正在冲破那里的黑暗。

One large island she mentioned particularly, in which the faith is making rapid strides. The people, both Catholics and Protestants, are truly good and gladly receive instruction ; the latter being well-inclined toward Catholicity, the church is crowded at all public functions. The city is so densely peopled that they are beginning to extend its limits. The native population are excellently well disposed.

她特别提到了一个大岛,那里的信仰正在迅速发展。人民,无论是天主教徒还是新教徒,都是真正的好人,乐于接受教导;新教徒非常倾向于天主教,在所有公共活动中,教堂都挤满了人。这座城市人口稠密,以至于他们开始扩大城市范围。当地居民非常好。

They are of a brown complexion, some of them quite black. They were accustomed to go almost naked, but they now dress as their teachers prescribe. Sister Emmerich saw their idols which she described — the island seems to be the same for which she had prayed on Christmas night.

他们的肤色是棕色的,有些还很黑。他们习惯于几乎裸体,但现在他们按照教会导师的规定穿衣。艾曼丽修女描述了她看到的这个民族的偶像——这座小岛似乎与她在圣诞节晚上为之祈祷的那个岛屿一样。

In India she met the people whom, on a former occasion, she had seen drawing the sacred waters of the Ganges and kneeling before a cross ; they were now in a better condition, receiving instruction, and about to form into a community — it was here she had a vision of St. Thomas and St. Xavier.

在印度,她遇到了一些人,以前她曾见过他们汲取恒河的圣水,并跪在十字架前。他们现在处于更好的状态,接受指导,即将形成一个社区——在这里,她看到了圣多默和圣沙勿略。

Thence she went into the neighborhood of the Mountain of the Prophets, traversed the dark country of Semiramis where she met Sts. Simon and Jude, saw the huge columns of the ruined city, passed through the land of St. John the Baptist and that in which the Evangelist John wrote his Gospel, and enter- ed the Promised Land to find ruin on all sides.

从那以后,她进入了先知山附近,穿越了塞米拉米斯的黑暗国度,在那里她遇到了圣西满和圣犹大,看到了这座被毁城市的巨大柱子,穿过洗者圣若翰和圣史若望写福音的地方,进入恩许之地,发现四面八方的废墟。

The Holy Places are hardly recognizable, though grace still operates through them. Here her visions became general, portraying the malice of men by frustrating the abundant means of salvation offered them. On Mt. Carmel she had a vision of St. Berthold and the discovery of the Holy Lance at Antioch. She saw many fervent religious, monks and nuns, still serving God there.

圣地已难以辨认,但恩宠仍在其中运行。在这里,她的异象变得概括,描绘出了人类的恶意,而这恶意阻挠了供给人类丰富的救赎手段。在加尔默罗山上,她看到了圣伯特霍尔德,并在安提约基亚发现了圣矛(刺穿耶稣肋旁的长矛)。她看到许多虔诚的修士和修女,仍然在那里侍奉天主。

21.jpg

 

卡拉布里亚的圣伯特霍尔德St.   Berthold一些历史学家认为是加尔默罗会的创始人。他出生于法国利摩日,在巴黎大学被证明是一名出色的学生。晋铎后与他的兄弟、土耳其安提约基亚的拉丁祖先艾默里克,一起参加十字军东征。在加尔默罗山上,他找到了一群隐士,加入了他们,并制定了会规。艾默里克任命伯特霍尔德为第一位加尔默罗会会长。   伯特霍尔德试图改革该地区的基督徒士兵,因为他对基督有了神视,并领导了加尔默罗会四十五年。----译者注

 

" I saw that my relic of the Knight of Malta is one of St. Berthold whom the hermit, Peter of Provence, took on the Crusade. They were together at the seige of Antioch. When their need was most pressing, Berthold thought : ‘If we had the lance with which Our Lord was wounded, we should surely conquer' — then he, Peter, and another, though unknown to one another, severally invoked God's assistance.

「我看到我的马耳他骑士圣髑,是圣伯特霍尔德的圣髑,当年普罗旺斯的隐士伯多禄在十字军东征时带着伯特霍尔德同行。他们一起围攻安提约基亚。当他们的需求最迫切时,伯特霍尔德想:『如果我们有刺透我们的主肋旁的长矛,我们一定会战胜的。』——然后伯特霍尔德、伯多禄和另一个人,虽然彼此不认识,但各自祈求天主的帮助。

The Blessed Virgin appeared to all three separately. She told them that the lance of Longinus was concealed in the wall behind the altar of the church, bidding them communicate this intelligence to one another. They obeyed ; they sought and found the sacred lance walled up in a chest behind the altar.

圣母分别向三人显现。她告诉他们,朗基努斯使用的长枪藏在圣堂祭台后面的墙壁里,吩咐他们互相转告。他们服从了圣母的指示;他们寻找并发现了圣矛,它被锁在祭台后面的一个箱子里

The iron point was rather short, and the shaft was broken into several pieces. Victory followed the lance everywhere. Berthold had vowed to devote himself to the Blessed Virgin on Mt. Carmel, if the city were delivered ; he became an anchorite, and later on the Founder and General of the Carmelite Order."

铁矛尖很短,枪杆被断成几截。 胜利伴随着长矛无处不在。伯特霍尔德曾发誓,如果这座城市被拯救,他将奉献自己于加尔默罗山的圣母;他成为一名隐士,后来成为加尔默罗会的创始人和会长。」

Sister Emmerich then spoke of other holy monks and hermits whom she had met on her spiritual journey through the Holy Land, and of many chosen souls who like herself had been taken there in ecstasy. She found all dark and dreary in the country in which the Israelites had sojourned, and she met there some ignorant, but well-meaning monks belonging to a certain sect.

艾曼丽修女接着谈到了她在圣地的超性之旅中遇到的其他圣修士和隐修士,以及许多像她一样被拣选的灵魂在神魂超拔中被带到那里。她发现以色列人曾经寄居过的地方一片黑暗和沉闷,她在那里遇到了一些无知但善意的修道士,他们属于某个教派。

She passed many half-ruined pyramids belonging to the earliest ages, and saw St. Sabbas and other saints of the desert. Thence she turned to the land of St. Augustine and Perpetua, pushed on southward through frightful darkness, and visited Judith whom she found pensively planning some way of escape that she might receive instruction, for she was at heart a Christian. Sister Emmerich begged God to help her.

她经过了许多属于远古时代的半毁坏的金字塔,并看到了圣萨巴斯和其他沙漠圣人。从那里她转向圣奥斯定和圣伯尔都亚的土地,在可怕的黑暗中向南推进,并拜访了友弟德,她发现友弟德正在焦虑地计划着某种逃生方式,以便她接受基督教教导,因为她内心里已是一个基督徒。艾曼丽修女恳求天主帮助友弟德。

After this she crossed over to Brazil where, also, she met saints, visited the islands, saw many new Christian settlements, passed through America, found a new impulse given to religion and met St. Rose and others. She returned over the sea to Sardinia and found Rosa Maria Serra, the stigmatisee of Ozieri, still alive to the astonishment of all who knew her, though old and bedridden. She saw another similarly favored whom she had met some time previously at Cagliari ; a maritime city of Sicily. The people of this country were in a tolerably good state.

在此之后,她穿越到巴西,在那里,她遇到了圣徒,访问了岛屿,看到了许多新的基督教定居点,途经美国,发现了赋予信仰的新动力,并遇到了圣罗撒和其他人。她越过大海回到撒丁岛意大利,发现奥齐耶里的五伤圣罗莎·玛丽亚·塞拉仍然活着,这让所有认识她的人都感到惊讶,尽管她年迈且卧床不起。她看到了另一个有同样恩惠的人,她以前在西西里岛的海上城市卡利亚里见过那人一段时间。这个国家的人民处于一个可以容忍的良好状态。

圣女罗撒 ( St. Rose of Lima-1586-1617): 罗莎于1586年的8月20日诞生于秘鲁的首都利玛(Lima),其双亲皆是西班牙人的后裔。圣女的本名是依撒贝尔(Isabel),由于诞生时极其美丽,故常被唤作「玫瑰(Rose-罗莎)」然而,罗莎并不希望自己的容貌为他人所爱慕,因为她的心早已献给耶稣。罗莎总是将自己易于引人爱慕的容貌,以胡椒涂抹之,使其产生令人生厌的红斑来;后来,她甚至在其母妆点圣女的银制头环内,加上钉针,以此表达耶稣的荆棘刺冠。结果,那头环常因刺入过深而难以取下。当圣女的双亲在经济上陷入困境时,她便整日于花园内工作,以支持其贫困的父母。由于她一心渴望修道,而父母却试图为她安排婚事,为此圣女努力抗争了十年。这期间,圣女基于服从,便只能在家中继续她补赎与独修的生活,当时她已是一位道明第三会的成员。此后,圣女为渴望完全活出基督的生命来,便在家中潜心于独修的操练。

圣女生命的最后几年,在自己的家中设置了一个专司照顾无家可归的孤儿、老人与病患的房间,这可以说是秘鲁最早的慈善事业;虽说她的生活与活动常是隐而未显的,但仍吸引了许多人的注意,并加以询问。但他们了解圣女的景况后,都仅能说:唯有天主的恩宠,才能解释罗莎所行的一切。

1617年的8月30日,圣女病逝,享年31岁;当时,全城都因她的葬礼而默哀,壮丁们则争相轮流为圣女扶棺。圣女过世之后,发生了许多神迹;1667年,教宗克莱孟九世(Pope Clement IX)册封罗莎为真福品;1671年,教宗克莱孟十世(Pope Clement X)将其列为圣品,是美洲第一位被列品的圣人。在圣像中,圣女常被描绘成一位戴有玫瑰刺冠的少女。----译者注

 

 

She went on to Rome, thence to Switzerland, visited Einsiedeln and the abodes of the ancient hermits, of Nicholas von der Flue, and others. She saw in passing St. Francis de Sales, and St. Chantal‘s convent ; crossed into Germany where she saw Sts. Walburga, Kilian, the Emperor Henry, and Bonifacius; recognized Frankfort, saw the infant-martyr (1) and the old merchant in his tomb ; crossed the Rhine and met Sts. Boniface, Goar, and Hildegarde, of whom she had special visions. She was told that to the latter had been imparted, through the grace of the Holy Ghost, the power of committing her visions to writing, although she had never learned to read or write ; of calling down chastisement upon prevaricators; and of prophesying concerning the wicked woman of Babylon.

她接着去了罗马,然后又去了瑞士,拜访了艾因西德伦和古代隐士、尼各老···弗卢(见上卷39章)等人的住所。她路过圣方济··沙雷氏和圣尚塔尔的修道院;越过德国,在那里她看到了圣沃尔布加、圣基利安、亨利皇帝和圣波尼法修斯;认出了法兰克福,在他的坟墓里看到了婴儿殉道者(1)和老商人;越过莱茵河,遇到了圣波尼法爵、圣高尔和圣希尔德加德,艾曼丽修女对希尔加德有特殊的神视。她被告知,虽然希尔德加德从未学会阅读或写作,但通过圣神的圣宠,她已经获得了将她的神视写下来的能力;她还获得了对诽谤者进行惩罚的能力;以及预言巴比伦邪恶妇人的能力。

圣基利安 Saint   Kilian    大约在   640 年出生于贵族父母,位于现在爱尔兰卡文郡东南部的穆拉附近。曾在著名的 Hy 修道院修道。686 年夏天,基利安与 11 名同伴穿越高卢前往罗马接受教宗的传教使命,于深秋抵达并与教宗卡农会面。从那里他们前往维尔茨堡城堡传教。他让戈兹伯特公爵和他的大部分臣民皈依了基督教。因基利安指出赫尔佐格(公爵)娶了他兄弟的遗孀盖拉娜,违反了圣经,导致盖拉娜派她的士兵往维尔茨堡的主要广场,在基利安和他的同事们在那里正在传教时,并将他与他的两个同伴一起斩首。——译者注

 

 

No one ever received so many graces as Hildegarde whose revelations are fulfilled even in our own day. Sister Emmerich now met Elizabeth of Schoenau and, on visiting France, saw Sts. Genevieve, Denis, Martin, with a host of others ; but frightful misery, corruption, and abomination reigned in the capital. It appeared to her to be in a sinking condition and that no stone would be left upon another.

没有人像希尔德加德那样领受到如此多的恩宠,即使在我们这个时代,她的启示也得到了应验。艾曼丽修女现在遇到了舍瑙的伊丽莎白,并在访问法国时看到了圣热纳维耶芙、圣德尼、圣玛尔定和其他许多人;但是可怕的苦难、腐败和可憎正统治着首都,在她看来,法国正处于日渐衰败的状态,会被夷为平地,连一块石头也不留在石头上。

舍瑙的伊丽莎白 Elizabeth of Schoenau(约 1129 年 - 1164 年 6   月 18 日)是一位德国本笃会的有神视的修女。她是拿骚公国舍瑙修道院的女修道院院长,经历过无数的神视,为此她受到许多远在法国和英国的有权势的人的广泛探求。----译者注

圣女热纳维耶芙St.   Genevieve(422—502),是法国巴黎的主保圣人。圣女热纳维耶芙还是个小女孩时就已经决定终身过贞节的生活,   父母过世后,圣女热纳维耶芙来到居住在巴黎的教母处,照顾贫穷及生病的人们。在巴黎,她严格禁欲补赎,传说她从15岁开始一直到50岁每周只进食大麦面包和豆子并只喝水两次(星期四和星期日)。据说在这期间,她经历了如同死尸般的持续三天的僵硬,天使带她看到了天堂与地狱。传说她阻止了匈奴国王阿提拉对巴黎的入侵。传说她还对当时的法兰西国王克洛维一世(约466-511)皈依基督教做出了贡献。这位国王是欧洲的第一位接受基督教洗礼的国王,从而使法兰克帝国得以基督教化,这对整个欧洲历史都有着非凡的意义。很不幸的是,1793年,圣女热纳维耶芙的遗骸在法国大革命中被公开烧毁了。她的圣骨匣安放在巴黎圣女热纳维耶芙广场上的圣斯德望堂中。----译者注

圣德尼St. Denis,又译为圣丹尼斯,又称巴黎的德尼(法语:Denis de Paris),拉丁文中称为戴奥尼修斯(拉丁语:Dionysius,昵称为Dennis或Denys),基督教圣徒与殉教者。活跃于3世纪时,他是巴黎主教,约西元250年,他在罗马皇帝德西乌斯迫害基督教时殉教。传闻他被斩首后仍拾起头颅边走边讲道,长达十公里,直走到今天称为圣德尼 (Saint-Denis) 的地方。他是法国与巴黎的主保圣人。在艺术作品中,除了砍掉的头颅,我们还可以从主教冠来辨认出他。----译者注

 

 

 

 

Thence she went to Liege, Belgium, and saw Sts. Juliana and Odilia ; in Brabant, she had visions of St. Lidwina who was wholly insensible to the worms that ate her body, her miserable state of poverty, or the tears that froze on her cheeks as they flowed, for Mary stood by her bed extending her mantle over her. Mary of Oignies she saw In a country still inhabitated by pious Christians, and returning through Bock-holt, she found many of the same stamp on the frontiers of Holland.

从那以后,艾曼丽修女去了比利时的列日,看到了圣朱莉安娜和圣奥迪利亚;在布拉班特,她看到了圣李维娜,圣女对蚕食她身体的虫子、她悲惨的贫困状态以及冻结在她脸颊上的泪水完全没有感觉,因为圣母玛利亚站在她的床边,张开外氅遮住她。艾曼丽修女在一个仍有虔诚的基督徒居住的国家,看到了奥因尼的玛利亚;在经过博克霍尔特返回时,她在荷兰边境发现了许多同样的人。

27.jpg

列日的朱莉安娜 St. Juliana(也称为科尼永山的朱莉安娜),(约 1192 年或 1193 年 -   1258 年 4 月 5 日)是比利时的中世纪诺伯丁修女和神秘主义者。   传统的学术资料长期以来一直认为她是基督圣体圣血节的发起人,这个瞻礼于 1246 年在列日首次庆祝,后来于 1264 年被天主教会采用。——译者注

圣奥迪利亚St. Odilia,大约在公元 300 年,圣奥迪利亚和其他十位处女从英格兰出发前往东方朝圣。出于偶然或计划,他们所乘坐的船沿莱茵河而上。他们被一些士兵俘虏并带到科隆。在那里,年轻女性被杀害以捍卫她们的基督教信仰和纯洁。圣奥迪利亚未来作为圣十字勋章守护者的角色体现在克罗西尔标准和她的座右铭“我选择了十字架”中。——译者注

 

Whilst passing through Saxony, she had seen Sts. Gertrude and Mechtiide. She had visions of their gifts and graces, and of what they had done for the Church. In the country of the infant-martyr, she struck terror into two men who were about murdering a poor courier, in order to seize his papers.

在经过萨克森时,她看到了圣格特鲁德和圣美狄黛。她看到了她们的恩赐和圣宠,以及她们为教会所做的一切。在婴儿殉道者的国家,艾曼丽修女让两个男人惊恐万分,他们要谋杀一个可怜的信使,以夺取他的文件。

圣女洁如(日多达) St. Gertrude(或圣大格特鲁德)是本笃会的修女,生于公元1256年。五岁的时候,入德意志汉夫德女修院,她的老师是圣女美狄黛。廿五岁的时候,洁如首次见基督的显现。从那一天起,她的思想完全转变。她全心全意谋取与吾主密切结合。她看见自己的灵魂如一块蜡在火上熔化,陈列在耶稣圣胸前,准备接受印记,又看见自己被吸入耶稣的圣心。圣女洁如提倡勤领圣体、大圣若瑟的敬礼和耶稣圣心的瞻礼。这些运动到后来方才普遍传扬。由此可知圣女的先知先觉,见解高人一筹。洁如所著的《天主圣爱的报导》一书,神学意义深邃,文字秀美,为灵修生活不可多得的佳作,若干人推崇洁如这本书的价值仅次于圣德肋撒的作品。圣女洁如于1301年逝世,享年仅四十五岁。-------译者注

哈克伯恩的美狄黛St.   Mechtiide(1240/1241 - 1298 年   11 月 19 日)是撒克逊基督教圣徒(来自现在的德国)和本笃会修女。 她以她的音乐才华而闻名,拥有优美的声音。   在 50 岁时,美狄黛经历了严重的属灵危难,以及身体上的痛苦。

圣女美荻黛是瑟琳家族的女儿,七岁时候就进入她姐姐的本笃会院,学习与修德均进步很快,她的谦虚、敬爱和热心出人头地,如此年幼就指导初学生和唱经者,这样她就成了圣女大日多达的第一位老师。那时候日多达年方五岁,也寄托在修女院。美荻黛虽然承受肉体的痛苦,但是她仍然坚持咏唱日课,这是《特宠之书》的基本精神,圣女大日多达和另一位修女悄悄地写下了美荻黛所受的天主的超性神恩。-------译者注
