小城傳教古今:澳門三巴仔和瘋人廟 Small Town, Big Mission: Chapel of St. Joseph’s Seminary and St. Lazarus’ Church of Macau

俗稱「三巴仔」的聖若瑟修院聖堂,二百多年來見證了一代代學生學習成為傳教士;而舊稱「瘋人廟」的望德聖母堂前身是痲瘋院小堂,後來發展成華人教友實踐信仰、彼此扶持的地方。她們盛載了許多傳教救靈的真實故事,反映了天主教信仰知識與愛德並重的幅度。 Similar to the Ruins of St. Paul's, the Chapel of St. Joseph's Seminary has been a cradle of missionary formation for over two centuries. St. Lazarus' Church, nicknamed Lepers Temple, used to be the chapel of a lepers' hospice, which developed into a community of Chinese Catholics that put faith and love into practice. Both churches give rise to numerous true stories of evangelization and charity work, reflecting the spectrum of Catholicism from contemplation to action, knowledge to charity.
