曾蔭權 爵士嘅因禍得福

今日《蘋果日報》報導,大家無點留意嘅英文公教報(Sunday Examiner,一般最大棚讀者係菲傭),刊登咗 曾蔭權 喺今年一月寫嘅英文文章,叫 Mercy and Forgiveness,講述佢卸下公職之後,喺契丹、歐洲同香港四處拜訪天主教堂,反省自己嘅過去。

我睇曾蔭權嘅文章,我可以講,佢雖蒙獄,但我相信佢能由呢次裡面反省過嚟,重新出發,而唔係果位古惑而令佢失足嘅友仔,至今都仲要扮鬥士,扮好人。

另一個 曾蔭權

大家認識嘅曾蔭權,當中不乏印象包括cheap(講真,佢單案,真係好cheap),沙塵,擺款扮嘢,但呢篇 Sunday examiner 文章,或者大家可以睇到另一個 曾蔭權 ,一個唔駛擦鞋,返到教堂嘅 曾蔭權 。首先,佢 Sunday Examiner 篇文係唔提自己係前特首,連爵士銜頭都唔提,你唔係細心咁睇,你都會遺漏一位前特首寫咗篇採訪教堂嘅文章,講Mercy and Forgiveness,你可能只會當咗係一位寫英文都唔錯嘅教友寫嘅文章。呢種低調同謙遜,真係以往 曾蔭權 公職生涯你睇唔到。

但最可貴,係曾蔭權對契丹歷史嘅反省,可能共產黨知道佢骨子裡係堅持天主教信德,所以不得不整到佢落底。

Their interior is unfortunately sparse compared with their western counterparts, because of civil wars and the Cultural Revolution when churches were ransacked.

The destruction of old Chinese temples is, in my view, most regrettable in China. Their mostly wooden structures could not withstand the arson, demolition and pilfering by senseless rioters, particularly during the Boxer Revolution and the Cultural Revolution.

It warms my heart that Hong Kong people attach great importance to the conservation of old buildings. They remind us of our past and the lessons that we can learn from the historic events they have witnessed in our short, but colourful history of 100 odd years.

叫文革紅衛兵同義和團係senesless rioter,呢個係好多有常識香港人嘅共識,但唔係共產黨。由呢點,大家都知,曾蔭權已經反省過嚟,並且豁出去。

另一點都好重要,就係曾蔭權呼籲更包容去看待政治,而唔係搞撕裂

Perhaps they may also inspire us to view matters and people with a much wider and more historic perspective, be more tolerant and accommodating of each other, or even more inclusive, forgiving and merciful in dealing with ourselves and our neighbours, as Pope Francis has urged his faithful to do during the Jubilee Year.

或容我咁講,迷失過嘅曾蔭權已經返咗嚟,果個屬於香港人嘅曾蔭權。我相信佢捱過獄中嘅考驗後,佢仍然可以為香港人服務,帶引香港去另一個方向贖佢過往嘅罪。有時,呢種都不失為因禍得福。
