幽燕教会的五次考验(The five trials of the Yuyencia Church)

这篇文章来自我的一封回信,简要介绍了一下幽燕民族教会对抗邪恶的历史。

我就说一下我自己所在教区的情况吧。我家这边属于天主教保定教区,在北京的南面紧邻,与中共的冲突是中国大陆地区最严重的。保定教区也是最保守的,这源自其深厚的信仰根基。我必须说一下背景,保定人,也就是幽燕夏族人(Yuyencian),是一个信仰虔诚又拥有勇武精神的民族。是的,我不认为中国人或所谓的“汉族”是一个真正的民族,我们燕族人祖先的国家,在被敌人入侵以前就是独立于中国的,在燕族人曾经存在的众多国家中,其中最著名的一个就是战国七雄之一的燕国,两千多年前被西方的秦国以武力入侵而吞并,纳入了中国第一个统一的,中央集权的帝国,燕族人以及诸夏各族都开始深受其奴役。亡国之前不屈的燕人勇敢地刺杀秦王,燕太子丹送别荆轲义士的“风萧萧兮易水寒,壮士一去兮不复还!”传唱至今。此后燕人也多次复国,最后一个独立的燕国到公元10世纪才灭亡。发生在东亚大陆历史上许多的罪恶与悲剧,都是源自于一些人对于大一统权力的追求。甚至于我们的祖先逐渐忘记了自己真正的民族身份,特别是帝国入侵者定都于燕京以后,燕族人以奴隶的身份而认同了所谓的“汉人”,丧失了对自由的追求。明白这一点,就知道为什么我们现在能被那些共产党人所奴役了,进而才有我们现在遇到的政教关系的冲突。因为现在的共产主义中国是两千多年来,最为邪恶的一个专制帝国,而天主教会与共产党是不可能共存的。
回来再讲述一下关于保定教区的历史,这里是燕族人最强大的一个天主教社区。在接受天主教信仰之前的中世纪,属于广义基督教一支的景教(聂斯托利派)就已经在这里流传了,至今在我家附近的山里还有一座当时留存下来的景教修道院遗址,那里曾有一位著名的旅行家拉班·扫马,他在公元13世纪末到罗马见过教宗,又与许多当时欧洲的天主教君主会面。同一时期,燕地的第一座天主教堂在北京(当时叫做汗八里城,蒙古人大元帝国的首都)就建立了,是我们燕族人开教的起始,到现在已经有800多年了,差不多和许多欧洲基督徒国家的信仰历史一样悠久,这也就是为什么我们这里会成为对抗共产主义最为坚定的地方了。只可惜因为后来南支那人朱元璋推翻了蒙古人的统治,天主教等西方宗教都被禁止,因为当时的海路还不兴盛,而陆路又被穆斯林阻断,因而在没有传教士的保护下,第一批天主教徒渐渐消失了,这是燕族人第一次遭受邪恶中国人的考验。公元17世纪初,在经连接东西方的新海路而来的耶稣会传教士利玛窦等人努力下,天主教信仰开始恢复,并在我的家乡广泛传播开来,天主的圣名开始深入到各个村庄,自此再也没有中断过。
到了满清统治以后的18世纪初,我们的教会遭受了第二次来自邪恶中国人的考验。满清政府虽然在一开始是来自东北方的蛮族,但在中国建立稳固统治以后,也开始以中国人自居了,虽然他们没有使用“中国人”这个名字,但当时在政治和文化上已经被中国人同化了。满清政府以“礼仪之争”为借口,开始禁止天主教信仰后,燕族人第一次建立了地下教会。当时北京城内的教堂都被满清政府霸占了,于是当时的传教士就把传教基地从城市转移到了位于保定乡下的安家庄,相当于后来的主教府。有一百多年的时间,当地教友们在秘密中坚守信仰,如同我们现在所作的。一直到一百多年后的19世纪中叶,因为英、法等国以武力逼迫满清政府打开贸易之路(也就是中国人教科书里所谓的“鸦片战争”),满清对天主教的禁令才解除了,在那一个多世纪里,燕族人的天主教社区在隐秘中继续壮大。在得以自由传教之后,大量的传教士不远万里远赴重洋而来到远东归化异教徒,其中负责在我家乡传教的就是来自法国的遣使会士。
到了1900年,幽燕教会遭受了邪恶中国人的第三次考验,攻击教会者就是那些臭名昭著的义和团拳匪。因为当时的燕地已经建立了众多的天主教社区,因此教会已有能力自卫,训练了武装民兵,建筑了防御工事,因此大多数天主教村镇堡垒都没有被敌人攻破。其中最著名的一次战役就是在保定城郊的东闾保卫战,当时数倍于东闾教友的拳匪与满清士兵包围东闾,连攻数月都没有拿下。特别是在战斗中圣母亲自显现,带领天军保护教友们,可以说天主是特别地钟爱我们的民族,也是因为我们燕族人最为虔诚地侍奉天主。由此东闾圣母也就成为了我们民族的守护者。经历过战争的考验,天主教会在西方基督徒国家的保护下得以继续自由传教,并且越发势不可挡,越来越多的燕族人皈依入教,天主教信仰的根基在这里也是越来越牢固。
满清灭亡以后,到了北洋政府统治时期,当时虽有战乱,但是因为北洋军政府亲近西方,因而并未打压教会,传教工作继续壮大。直到1928年开始遭受第四次考验,也就是来自于取代了北洋政府的国民党政府。国民党接受了苏联的扶持,并且搞他们那种邪恶的民族主义,强迫东亚大陆的各族人民认同他们为了自己政治上的野心而发明的所谓“中华民族”,并且又恢复了集权制,进行各种排斥教会的“非基督教运动”,教会被迫配合其宣扬爱国主义,抵制日本人,正是因为他们这样做,才为共产主义苏联赤化整个大陆提供了方便,在他们挑起的中日战争中,教会的传教工作才真正的受阻了,特别是奉献给东闾圣母的圣殿在战争中毁灭。这次的考验与其他几次不同之处在于,很多人自以为是在保护教会,实际上则是害了教会,特别是那些支持国民党发动战争的爱国主义者。
从国民党到共产党,是一种不可避免的替换,由此教会又遭受了第五次考验,来自最邪恶的共产主义中国人。但是我们燕族人对此毫不畏惧,因为这次考验,也就是教难,也会像前几次那样结束,在不断地压迫下,我们燕族人的信仰反而会越加坚定。最突出的反击是来自我们保定的主教范学淹,范学淹大主教在80年代初开始建立了忠贞教会,以对抗中共所扶持的爱国会系统,祝圣主教、培养司铎、在艰难中继续传教,保卫信仰不受邪恶侵犯,最后以殉道的方式实践了他对天主完全的信赖。正是因为我们的忠诚,在1995年5月恭敬圣母的朝圣时期,圣母在东闾再次显现,以示对我们忠贞教会抵抗运动的鼓励。当然这也预示了后来更大的考验,就像一百年前那次一样,只不过在共产党的强力统治下,我们已经无法通过武力保卫教会,而西方那些原本的教会保护者,都已经倒向了敌基督的阵营,特别是连梵蒂冈教廷也都已经背叛了天主。圣母再次显现东闾的第二年,邪恶的共产党中国政府对幽燕忠贞教会进行了最残酷的镇压,在明知不敌的情况下,东闾教友们奋起反抗,不惜流血,这就是1996年的“东闾朝圣事件”,抵抗失败后圣堂被毁,主教神父们纷纷被捕,因带领教友们武力对抗,他们均遭判处无期徒刑,其中就包括我们现在的正权主教苏志民·雅格,自1997年遭囚禁至今都生死不明,但教友们知道他至死也不会妥协一分一毫的,将效仿殉道的前辈们,以生命实践信仰。
当然,无比邪恶的中共是很狡诈的,后来他们诱骗了安树新主教,这位出身于安家庄的前忠贞主教,最终妥协了,成为我们这里极少数加入爱国会系统的神职。这就是最危险之处,比单纯的镇压也更有效,就是分化瓦解的方式,他们自己称为“统战”,对于梵蒂冈他们也是这个办法,当然起初他们也并不知道梵二后的梵蒂冈早已经对共产党伸出友谊之手了,这就是他们现在为什么能够进行谈判。

———————————————-English version:
Let me talk about the situation in my own Diocese.I come from the Catholic Diocese of Baoding, close to the south of Beijing, and the clash with the Chinese Communist Party is the most serious in mainland China.The Diocese of Baoding is also the most conservative, which is derived from its deep catholic faith.
I must say something about the background. Baoding people, that is“Yuyencian”(or called “Yan people”), is a nation that devout and courage, not Chinese.Yes, I don’t think that the Chinese or the so-called “Han” is a real nation.The nation of our Yuyencian ancestors was independent of China before being invaded by the enemy.In many countries where Yuyencian have ever existed, One of the most famous Yuyencian’s country, is Yan kingdom of the Warring States period. It was destroyed by the Western Qin Dynasty by force during more than 2,000 years ago and was included in China’s first unified, a centralized control empire.The Yuyencian and the various peoples of Cathaysia began to be deeply enslaved.The unyielding Yuyencian before their country death, took a brave assassination of the King of Qin.When Prince Dan of Yan kingdom said goodbye to the Warriors Jingke, Jingke’s brother Gao jianli singing: “The wind is bleak and cold, and the warrior is not going back anymore!” has spread to the present.This is our Yuyencian’s national soul. Since then, faced with the Chinese people’s repeatedly invasions, the Yuyencian have also repeatedly fought. The last independent Yan kingdom until the 10th century AD was dead. Many of the sins and tragedies that have taken place in the history of the East Asian continent have been derived from the greed of some people over the power of the China empire. Even our ancestors gradually forgot their true national identity. Especially after the Imperial invaders took Yanjing as the capital of the empire, the Yuyencian call themselves “Han” as a slave and lost their pursuit of freedom. When we understand this, we know why we can be enslaved by those communists now. And we can understand the conflicts we now know between the government and the church. Because the present communist China is the most wicked autocratic empire for more than two thousand years, it is impossible for the Catholic Church and the Communist Party to coexist.
Now i come back and tell us about the history of the Baoding Diocese. There is the most powerful Catholic community for the Yuyencian.In the Middle Ages before accepting Catholicism,The Nestorian religion belonging to the broad Christian group has already been circulated here.In the mountains near my home so far there is also a remains of the Nestorian monastery,There have a famous traveler, Rabban Bar Sauma,He met the Pope in Rome at the end of the 13th century and met with many Catholic monarchs in Europe at the time. In the same period, the first Catholic church in Yanland was established in Beijing(At that time, it was called “Khanbaliq”, the capital of the Mongolian Empire),It is the start of our Yuyencian’s belief in Roman Catholicism. It has been over 800 years now, almost as long as the beliefs of many European Christian countries,this is why we here will be the firmest place against communism. But was a pity that later South China’s Zhu Yuanzhang overthrew the rule of the Mongols,Western religions such as Catholicism are forbidden,because the sea was not yet prosperous, and land was blocked by Muslims,therefore, the first community of Catholics gradually disappeared without the protection of missionaries.This is the first time that Yuyencia church have been tested by evil Chinese. At the beginning of the 17th century AD, the missionaries of the Jesuits, such as Matteo Ricci, who came through the New Sea Road connecting East and West, made great efforts.The Catholic faith began to recover and spread widely in my hometown,The name of God began to dig deep into the villages and never ceased.
In the early 18th century after the Manchu rule,The Yuyencia church suffered the second test from the evil Chinese. Although the Manchu government began with a barbarian from the northeast, but when they established a firm rule in China, they also began to behave as Chinese.Although they did not use the name “Chinese”, they were politically and culturally assimilated by the Chinese.After the Manchu government used the ritual of “Chinese Rites controversy” as an excuse to start bans of Catholic beliefs, Yuyencian established the underground church for the first time.At that time, the churches in Beijing were occupied by the Manchu government,Therefore, the missionaries at that time transferred the missionary base from the city to Anjiazhuang in the Baoding countryside, equivalent to the later Bishop House.For more than a hundred years, the local catholics kept their faith in secrets as we do now.In the mid-19th century after more than 100 years,because Britain, France, and other countries used force to the Manchu government to open up the trade route (that is, the so-called “Opium War” in Chinese textbooks),The Manchu government’s ban on Catholicism was lifted.For more than a century, the Yuyencian’s Catholic community has continued to grow in secret.After being free to preach, a large number of missionaries have not hesitated to come to the Far East to domesticated pagans.One of the missionaries responsible for teaching in my hometown is from the French Congregation of the Mission (CM).
By 1900,We have suffered the third test of evil Chinese people,the attackers are those notorious Boxers.As the Yanland at that time had established a large number of Catholic communities,So we has the ability to defend itself,Armed militias were trained and fortifications were built. As a result, most Catholic villages and towns were not attacked by the enemy.One of the most famous battles is the “Battle of Donglu” outside Baoding City.At that time, there were only a few hundred people of Donglu, face the siege of tens of thousands of boxers and Manchu soldiers for several months. successfully resisted the invasion of the enemy.Especially in the battle, Our Lady has appeared since,, leading the heavenly army to protect the Donglu’s faithful. It can be said that God particularly loves our nation. It is also because our Yuyencian serve God most sincerely.From this, Our Lady of Donglu is also the guardian of our nation.Having experienced the test of war,The Catholic Church continued to be free to preach under the protection of Western Christian nations.And more and more unstoppable, more and more Yuyencian converted to Catholic,by now, there have been more than 2 million Catholics in Yanland. The foundation of the Catholic faith is also becoming stronger here.
After the demise of the Manchu Dynasty, it was under the reign of the Beiyang government.Although there was war, the Beiyang Government was close to the West at the time.As a result, the church was not suppressed and missionary work continued to grow.Until the beginning of the fourth test in 1928,That is, it replaced the Beiyang Government’s Kuomintang government’s attack on the church.The Kuomintang accepted the support of the Soviet Union,and engage in their kind of evil nationalism,forcing the peoples of the East Asian continent to identify with the so-called “Chinese nation” they invented for their own political ambitions.dictatorship,and exclude the “non-Christian movement”,The church was forced to cooperate with it to promote patriotism and boycott the Japanese. It is because of this they do,only for the convenience of the communist Soviet Union to provide the convenience of the entire continent.In the Sino-Japanese war they provoked,The missionary work of the church was really blocked,In particular, the shrine dedicated to the Our Lady of Donglu was destroyed in the war.The several differences between this test and others are that,many people think that they are protecting the church, but in fact it is the church.Especially those patriots who support the Kuomintang in its war.
From the Kuomintang to the Communist Party, it is an inevitable replacement.From this, the Yuyencia church again suffered the fifth test, from the most evil communist Chinese.But our Yuyencian are not afraid of this,because this test, will end like the previous times,Under constant oppression, our Yuyencian’s beliefs will be strengthened.The most prominent counterattack came from our Bishop, Fan Xueyan, from Baoding.Bishop Fan Xueyan began to establish the Loyalty church in the early 1980s,against the CPCA system supported by the Chinese Communist Party, to consecrate bishops, to cultivate priests, and to Missionary in difficult times,to defend the faith against evil violations,in the end, he practiced his full trust in God by way of martyrdom.It is because of our loyalty,the pilgrimage to the Virgin in May 1995,Our Lady Revealed Again in Donglu,To show our loyalty church to encourage resistance movements.Of course, this also indicates a greater test later,Just like it was a hundred years ago.But under the strong rule of the Communist Party,we have been unable to defend the Church by force,and the original church protectors in the West,all have fallen to the camp of the Antichrist,In particular, even the Vatican’s Holy See has already betrayed God.The Second Year of the Our Lady Resurrection,The evil Communist Chinese government has carried out the cruelest crackdown on loyal churches,in the case of knowingly losing,Donglu faithfuls rise up against tyranny,do not hesitate to bleed.This is the “Donglu Pilgrimage Pilgrimage Event” in 1996.After the defeat of resistance, the churches was destroyed and bishop or priests were arrested.Because they led the faithfuls to fight against each other,all of them were sentenced to life imprisonment.Among them have our current bishop, Su Zhimin James.Since being imprisoned in 1997, it has remained unclear.But we know that he will not compromise one point until his death,will emulate the predecessors of the martyrdom,practice beliefs in life.
Of course, the wicked Chinese Communist Party is very cunning.Later, they deceived the Bishop An Shuxin.This Pre-Loyalty bishop from Anjiazhuang,finally compromised,become one of the very few clergy to joined the CPCA system.This is the most dangerous,more effective than pure repression,It is the way in which the disintegration occurs. They call themselves “United front”.For the Vatican they are also the way to,but at first they did not know that the Vatican after the Second Vatican Council had already extended a friendship to the Communist Party, this is why they can negotiate now.
