今週聖人: 聖王王璐琪、王天慶、郎楊氏、郎福

生平

聖王王璐琪和聖王天慶及聖郎楊氏和聖郎福是兩對母子,他們殉道的過程有相似的地方。
聖王王璐琪1869年生於河北威縣鐘官營村。庚子拳亂時帶著9歲大的兒子王天慶及五歲大的女兒到馬家莊避難,1900年7月21日義和團闖村,王王璐琪及子女與聖王玉梅及聖王安納等同時被捕。聖王玉梅殉道後,帶著一雙子女的王王璐琪同其他教友一起受到背教的誘惑及被殺的威脅,王王璐琪堅持信仰。翌日一眾信友被押到刑場,一些旁觀的外教人見王天慶天真活潑,惹人憐愛,願意收養他為義子,王王璐琪抱緊兒子,態度和藹但堅決拒絕,説︰「我奉教,我兒子都奉教。要殺,便將我母子倆一起殺死罷。現在,請先殺我兒子,然後再殺我。」拳民首領接受要求,王天慶全無懼色,滿面笑容地望著母親接受斬刑,接著,王王璐琪與她5歲大的女兒也相繼被殺。聖王王璐琪殉道時31歲。聖王天慶9歲。
聖郎楊氏1871生於河北清河縣陸家堡,出嫁之前並未奉教。入教後熱心祈禱,友愛待人。1900年7月16日,義和團入村,惡徒把郎楊氏縛在樹上,迫問她是否教友,郎楊氏堅決回答:「一定是。」她的7歲獨子郎福之前在外遊戲,回來見一群凶神惡煞的人縛著母親,便大哭起來。郎楊氏安慰對他説:「孩子!不要哭!來,到媽媽這兒來!」郎福亦被捉住及縛在另一棵樹上。接著惡徒以矛穿透郎楊氏的胸腹,又用刀砍傷郎福的手臂。最後把母子二人投進火中活活燒死。聖郎楊氏殉道時29歲,郎福7歲,他是最年輕封聖的中華殉道。

反省/效法

不論中外教難之時,有些信友屈服背教,不是因為貪生怕死,而是因為子女性命受到威脅。聖王王璐琪和聖郎楊氏都面對這個痛苦的抉擇,如果堅持信仰,兒子便要立死當場,她們都只是村婦,沒有高深的學問,但卻明白真理,不眷戀世間短暫的生命,而能幫自己和兒女選擇忍受瞬間的痛苦,走直達天國的永生途徑。二人愛子無微不至,王王璐琪寧願忍受目睹兒子慘死的裂心之痛,為的是要讓他看到自己鼓勵慈愛的眼神,直到最後一刻。當郎楊氏被縛在樹上見兒子受驚,雖然自己身處險境,還能懷著信德鼓勵他説:「來,到媽媽這兒來!」以生死相伴來安慰愛子。王天慶與郎福亦不負母親的期望,雖然年幼亦有勇氣面對死亡,沒有乞饒背教,四人均得到殉道的榮冠。我們看到四位聖人的事蹟應該反思,需抉擇時會否重親情友情多於對主之愛?在面對信仰挑戰時又可有勇氣以行動為主作證,立善表鼓勵別人?

祈禱

聖王王璐琪和聖郎楊氏能夠學習聖母,忍痛陪伴支持愛子行作證的苦路,讓我們亦默想聖母之苦,好能得她的助佑。願我們在逆境時能學習聖母全心交託,承行主旨。

願我們學習聖王王璐琪、聖王天慶、聖郎楊氏和聖郎福兩對母子,尤其他們信仰的忠貞,受挑戰時仍能義無反顧地為主作証。

聖王王璐琪、聖王天慶、聖郎楊氏和聖郎福,為我等祈。

圣王王璐琪和圣王天庆及圣郎杨氏和圣郎福是两对母子,他们殉道的过程有相似的地方。
圣王王璐琪1869年生于河北威县钟官营村。庚子拳乱时带著9岁大的儿子王天庆及五岁大的女儿到马家庄避难,1900年7月21日义和团闯村,王王璐琪及子女与圣王玉梅及圣王安纳等同时被捕。圣王玉梅殉道后,带著一双子女的王王璐琪同其他教友一起受到背教的诱惑及被杀的威胁,王王璐琪坚持信仰。翌日一众信友被押到刑场,一些旁观的外教人见王天庆天真活泼,惹人怜爱,愿意收养他为义子,王王璐琪抱紧儿子,态度和蔼但坚决拒绝,说︰「我奉教,我儿子都奉教。要杀,便将我母子俩一起杀死罢。现在,请先杀我儿子,然后再杀我。」拳民首领接受要求,王天庆全无惧色,满面笑容地望著母亲接受斩刑,接著,王王璐琪与她5岁大的女儿也相继被杀。圣王王璐琪殉道时31岁。圣王天庆9岁。

Saint of the week: Saints Lucia Wang Wang, Tian Qing Wang, Yang Lang, Fu Lang

Life

St. Lucia Wang Wang and St. Tian Qing Wang, St. Yang Lang and St Fu Lang are two pairs of mother and son. Their martyrdom were similar.
St. Lucia Wang Wang was born in Zhongguan Camp Village, Weixian, Hebei Province in 1869. During the Boxer rebellion, she took her 9-year-old son Tian Qing Wang and five-year-old daughter to seek refuge in Machiazhuang. On July 21, 1900, the Boxers came to the village. Lucia Wang Wang and her children, St. Yu Mei Wang and St. Anna Wang and others were arrested at the same time. After St Yu Mei Wang was martyred, Lucia Wang Wang, with her two children and other believers were tempted by apostasy and threatened with death. Lucia Wang Wang was steadfast in her faith. The next day, a group of believers were taken to the execution ground. On seeing Tian Qing Wang was cute, lively and lovable, some non-Catholic bystanders were willing to adopt him as their son. Lucia Wang Wang hugged her son tightly, kindly but firmly said: "I have my faith, and my son has his faith. If you want to kill me, kill both of us. Now, please kill my son first, and then me." The leader of the boxers accepted the request. Tian Qing Wang showed no fear and looked at his mother with a smile on his face as he was beheaded. Then, Lucia Wang Wang and her 5-year-old daughter were also killed. St. Lucia Wang Wang died at the age of 31. St. Tian Qing Wang died at the age of 9.
St. Yang Lang was born in 1871 in Lujiabao Village, Qinghe County in Hebei Province. She was not a Catholic before marriage. After getting married, she prayed fervently and treated others with kindness. On July 16, 1900, the Boxers entered her village. The gangsters tied Yang Lang to a tree and asked her if she was a Christian. Yang Lang firmly replied: "Definitely." Her 7-year-old only son Fu Lang was out playing; on coming back and seeing a group of vicious people tying up his mother, he burst into tears. Yang Lang comforted him and said, "Child! Don't cry! Come here to mother!" Fu Lang was also caught and tied to another tree. Then a villain pierced Yang Lang’s chest and abdomen with a spear, and slashed Fu Lang's arm with a knife. Finally, the mother and son were thrown into the fire and burned alive. St. Yang Lang died at the age of 29 and Fu Lang at the age of 7. He was the youngest Chinese martyr to be canonized.

Reflection/Imitation:

Regardless of whether religious persecutions were in China or elsewhere, some believers succumbed and apostatized, not because they are afraid of death, but because their children's lives were threatened. Both St. Lucia Wang Wang and St. Yang Lang faced this painful choice. If they insisted on their faith, their sons would die right on the spot. They were simple village women without profound knowledge, but they understood the Truth and were not attached to the brief, mortal life of the world. They helped their children choose to endure momentary pain and take the direct path to eternal life in heaven. The two loved their son, and Lucia Wang Wang was willing to endure the heartbreaking pain of witnessing her son's tragic death in order to let him see her encouraging and loving gaze until the last moment. When Yang Lang was tied to a tree and saw her frightened son, even though she was in danger, she still encouraged him with faith and said: “Come over to mother!" She comforted her son by accompanying him in life and death. Tian Qing Wang and Fu Lang also lived up to their mother's expectations. Although they were young, they had the courage to face death without begging for mercy and apostasy. All four of them received the honor of martyrdom. When we see the deeds of these four saints, we should reflect on it. When we need to make a choice, will we value family and friendship more than our love for the Lord? When facing challenges to our faith, can we have the courage to testify with our actions and set up good examples to encourage others?

Prayer

St. Lucia Wang Wang and St. Yang Lang were able to learn from Our Lady and be a witness in enduring the pain to accompany and support their beloved sons on their journey of suffering. Let us also meditate on the suffering of Our Lady so that we can receive her help. May we learn from Our Lady to surrender whole-heartedly and carry out the Lord’s will in times of adversity.

May we learn from the two mothers and sons, St. Lucia Wang Wang, St. Tian Qing Wang, St. Yang Lang and St. Fu Lang, especially their loyalty to their faith, to testify for the Lord without hesitation even when challenged.

St. Lucia Wang Wang, St. Tian Qing Wang, St. Yang Lang and St. Fu Lang, pray for us.
