助け合い Helping others

今日は雨の日曜日です。この数日は無理をして今朝から微熱が出ました。居るだけで神経も使うのでもっと自分を大事にする必要があると自覚しました。

今朝はおミサに行って来て又前に進む力を頂きました。アイランド出身の就任神父様が又感動的な説教をしました。人を助ける、救う話でした。その内容の中では主催神父様が率先しているカトリック教会が北朝鮮に対する人道支援の批判だったそうです。神父様はアイランドが昔を飢饉の時人口の20%~25%を亡くしたことの説明をし、人事ではないと答えたそうです。核、拉致問題はけして無視出来ないけど北朝鮮の人々も犠牲者です。

私も人生を振り替えながら自分自身が辛かった事を思い出し同じ経験をする人を助けて行く努力をして行きたいです・・・

人生は導かれる旅です。行先はどこか未だ分かりませんが今、大切な事は学問に精進することです。

It is Sunday here in Seoul, it is raining and I am feeling very tired. I have been pushing myself to the limit for the last few days and fear I may be getting sick

I did go to Mass this morning. The very inspiring priest gave a wonderful sermon about giving, he talked of a conversation he had with another priest who was critical of the Catholic Church’s insistence that humanitarian aid to North Korea must continue despite the nuclear issue. In the same conversation he reminded the other party that Ireland once had a famine, 20-25% of the population was wiped out. How can you ignore a major issue such as the famine across the border when you can relate to another famine yourself?

In the same sentiment I feel the need to re-evaluate why I am here, be thankful to those who have helped me along the way and show compassion and identify with those who have had similar difficulties in life as me.

Fate has brought me to Korea. I don’t know where this journey will take me but for now as I wait I feel the need to devote myself to my studies.
