附梅姨2017年复活节致辞的中英全文:

Easter is a moment to reflect, and an important time for Christians and others to gather together with families and friends.

复活节是一个进行反思的时刻,同时也是基督教徒以及其他人,与自己的亲朋友好友欢聚一堂的重大节日。

This year, after a period of intense debate over the right future for our country, there is a sense that people are coming together and uniting behind the opportunities that lie ahead.

而今年,经过一段时间对我国未来正确发展路径的激烈辩论,全国开始出现了一种趋势 - 面对眼前的机遇,人们团结一致,携手共进。

For at heart, this country is one great union of people and nations with a proud history and a bright future. And as we face the opportunities ahead of us – the opportunities that stem from our decision to leave the European Union and embrace the world – our shared interests, our shared ambitions, and above all our shared values can, and must, bring us together.

从本质上来说,英国是一个由人民和构成国组成的伟大联盟,拥有着光辉灿烂的历史和光明美好的未来。机遇此刻就摆在我们的眼前,而这些机遇源于我们之前做出的决定 - 脱离欧盟并拥抱世界 - 我们共同的利益、共同的雄心壮志,还有最重要的是我们共同的价值观,这些都能够且必定能够将我们紧紧团结在一起。

This Easter I think of those values that we share – values that I learnt in my own childhood, growing up in a vicarage. Values of compassion, community, citizenship. The sense of obligation we have to one another.

今年的复活节,让我想起了我们共有的价值观 - 我成长于一个牧师家庭,从小便习得了这些观念:慈悲为怀、集体精神、公民意识。以及人与人之间的那种义务感。

These are values we all hold in common, and values that are visibly lived out everyday by Christians, as well as by people of other faiths or none.

这些都是我们共同拥有的价值观,也是许多基督教徒、信奉其他宗教以及无宗教信仰的人士每天生活所奉行的价值观念。

I think of those who go out of their way to visit the sick or bereaved, providing comfort and guidance to many in our country at some of the most difficult moments in their lives. I think of the sacrifices and service of aid workers who put themselves in harm’s way to bring much-needed relief in war-torn parts of the world.

我也想起有些人 - 他们会专程前往探望病痛之人、慰问丧亲之人,在这些人生活最艰难的日子里,给他们送去慰藉关怀和人生指导;这还让我想起了救援人员的牺牲和奉献,他们宁愿自己遇险受伤,也要为饱受战争蹂躏的地区提供急需的救济和帮助。

We should celebrate all these contributions and others like them, and the difference they make in our society and around the world.

对于所有这些贡献和与之类似的贡献,我们都应予以称颂,也应该为这些人给社会和世界带来的积极意义而拍手叫好。

In doing so, we should be confident about the role that Christianity has to play in the lives of people in our country. And we should treasure the strong tradition that we have in this country of religious tolerance and freedom of speech.

此过程中,我们应该对基督教在我国人民生活中所发挥的作用保持信心。当然也要珍惜我国向来已久的一项优良传统,那就是宗教宽容和言论自由。

We must continue to ensure that people feel able to speak about their faith, and that absolutely includes their faith in Christ. We must be mindful of Christians and religious minorities around the world who do not enjoy these same freedoms, but who practise their religion in secret and often in fear.

我们也必须继续确保人们能够自由谈论自己的信仰,这其中必然包括了信奉基督教。但我们也应注意到,在全球各地,还有不少基督教徒和少数派宗教教徒无法享有这种自由,他们通常只能在恐惧之中,秘密地从事宗教活动。

And we must do more to stand up for the freedom of people of all religions to practice their beliefs openly and in peace and safety.

因此我们必须做出更多行动,来捍卫各类信仰宗教的自由,以便人们能公开、安全地践行自己的宗教信仰。

So this Easter, whatever our faith, let us come together as a nation confident in our values, and united in our commitment to fulfil the obligations that we have to one another.

所以这个复活节,无论我们的信仰如何,让我们作为一个国家携手同行,对共有的价值观充满信心;让我们团结一致,履行彼此之间相互承担的义务。

Let us work together to build that brighter future we want for our country. And let us together build a stronger, fairer Britain that truly does work for everyone.

让我们齐心协力,为这个国家创造一片更美好的未来;让我们共同建设一个更强大、更公平的英国,一个真正为所有人服务的英国。

And let me wish you all a very happy Easter.

我也在此祝愿所有人 - 复活节快乐!
