作者介绍: 特蕾莎修女(Mother Teresa,1910-19
  97),印度著名的慈善家, 印度天主教仁爱传教会创始人,在世界范围内建立了一个庞大的慈善机构网,赢 得了国际社会的广泛尊敬。1979 年被授予诺贝尔和平奖。本文所选即好在领取 该奖项时的演讲辞,这篇英语演讲小短文语言简洁质朴而感人至深。诺贝尔奖领 奖台上响起的声音往往都是文采飞扬、热烈、激昂。而特雷莎修女的演说朴实无 华,其所举事例听来似平凡之至,然而其中所蕴含的伟大而神圣的爱感人至深。 平凡中孕育伟大,真情才能动人。我们作文时,要善于从自己所熟知的平凡中发 掘伟大,以真情来打动读者。
The poor are very wonderful people. One evening we went out and we picked up four people from the street. And one of them was in a most terrible condition,and I told the sisters: You take care of the other three. I take care of this one who looked worse. So I did for her all that my love can do. I put her in bed, and there was such a beautiful smile on her face. She took hold of my hand as she said just the words "thank you" and she died. I could not help but examine my conscience[良心]before
her and I asked what would I say if I was in her place. And my answer was very simple. I would have tried to draw a little attention to myself. I would have said I am hungry, that I am dying, I am cold, I am in pain, or something, but she gave me much more-she gave me her grateful love. And she died with a smile on her face. As did that man whom we picked up from the drain[阴沟、下水道], half eaten with worms, and we brought him to the home. "I have lived like an animal in the street, but I am going to die like an angel, loved and cared for." And it was so wonderful to see the greatness of that man who could speak like that, who could die like that without blaming anybody, without cursing anybody, without comparing anything. Like an angel-this is the greatness of our people.
And that is why we believe what Jesus had said: I was hungry, I was naked, I was homeless, I was unwanted, unloved, uncared for, and you did it to me.
穷人是非常了不起的人。一天晚上,我们外出,从街上带回了四个人,其中 一个生命岌岌可危。于是我告诉修女们说:“你们照料其他三个,这个濒危的人 就由我来照顾了。 就这样, ” 我为她做了我的爱所能做的一切。 我将她放在床上, 看到她的脸上绽露出如此美丽的微笑。她握着我的手,只说了句“谢谢您”就死 了。我情不自禁地在她面前审视起自己的良知来。我问自己,如果我是她的话, 会说些什么呢?答案很简单, 我会尽量引起旁人对我的关注, 我会说我饥饿难忍, 冷得发抖,奄奄一息,痛苦不堪,诸如此类的话。但是她给我的却更多更多―― 她给了我她的感激之情。她死时脸上却带着微笑。我们从排水道带回的那个男子 也是如此。当时,他几乎全身都快被虫子吃掉了,我们把他带回了家。 “在街上, 我一直像个动物一样地活着, 但我将像个天使一样地死去, 有人爱, 有人关心。 ” 真是太好了,我看到了他的伟大之处,他竟能说出那样的话。他那样地死去,不 责怪任何人,不诅咒任何人,无欲无求。像天使一样――这便是我们的人民的伟 大之所在。 因此我们相信耶稣所说的话――我饥肠辘辘――我衣不蔽体――我无 家可归――我不为人所要,不为人所爱,也不为人所关心――然而,你却为我做 了这一切。
I believe that we are not real social workers. We may be doing social work in the eyes of the people, but we are really contemplatives[修行 者、沉思冥想的人] in the heart of the world. For we are touching the body of Christ twenty-four hours…And I think that in our family we don't need bombs and guns, to destroy, to bring peace, just get together, love one another, bring that peace, that joy, that strength of presence of each other in the home. And we will be able to overcome all the evil that is in the world.
我想,我们算不上真正的社会工作者。在人们的眼中,或许我们是在做社会 工作,但实际上,我们真的只是世界中心的修行者。因为,一天 24 小时,我们 都在触摸基督的圣体。我想,在我们的大家庭时,我们不需要枪支和炮弹来破坏 和平,或带来和平――我们只需要团结起来,彼此相爱,将和平、欢乐以及每一 个家庭成员灵魂的活力都带回世界。 这样, 我们就能战胜世界上现存的一切邪恶。
And with this prize that I have received as a Prize of Peace, I am going to try to make the home for many people who have no home. Because I believe that love begins at home, and if we can create a home for the poor I think that more and more love will spread. And we will be able through this understanding love to bring peace be the good news to the poor. The poor in our own family first, in our country and in the world. To be able to do this, our Sisters, our lives have to be wove with prayer. They have to be woven with Christ to be able to understand, to be able to share. Because to be woven with Christ is to be able to understand, to be able to share. Because today there is so much suffering…When I pick up a person from the street, hungry, I give him a plate of rice, a piece of bread, I have satisfied. I have removed that hunger. But a person who is shut out, who feels unwanted, unloved, terrified, the person who has been thrown out from society-that poverty is so full of hurt and so unbearable…And so let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love, and once we begin to love each other naturally we want to do something.
我准备以我所获得的诺贝尔和平奖奖金为那些无家可归的人们建立自己的 家园。因为我相信,爱源自家庭,如果我们能为穷人建立家园,我想爱便会传播 得更广。而且,我们将通过这种宽容博大的爱而带来和平,成为穷人的福音。首 先为我们自己家里的穷人, 其次为我们国家, 为全世界的穷人。 为了做到这一点, 姐妹们, 我们的生活就必须与祷告紧紧相连, 必须同基督结结一体才能互相体谅,
共同分享,因为同基督结合一体就意味着互相体谅,共同分享。因为,今天的世 界上仍有如此多的苦难存在……当我从街上带回一个饥肠辘辘的人时, 给他一盘 饭,一片面包,我就能使他心满意足了,我就能躯除他的饥饿。但是,如果一个 人露宿街头,感到不为人所要,不为人所爱,惶恐不安,被社会抛弃――这样的 贫困让人心痛,如此令人无法忍受。因此,让我们总是微笑想见,因为微笑就是 爱的开端,一旦我们开始彼此自然地相爱,我们就会想着为对方做点什么了。
