恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 1:40-45

那時候,有一個癩病人來到耶穌跟前,跪下求他說:「你若願意,就能潔淨我。」耶穌動了憐憫的心,就伸手撫摸他,向他說:「我願意,你潔淨了吧!」癩病立時脫離了他,他就潔淨了。然後,耶穌嚴厲警告他,立即催他走,並向他說:「當心!什麼也不可告訴人,但去叫司祭檢驗你,並為你的潔淨,奉獻梅瑟所規定的,給他們當作證據。」但那人一出去,便開始極力宣揚,把這事傳揚開了,以致耶穌不能再公然進城,只好留在外邊荒野的地方;但人們卻從各處到他跟前來。

—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 1:40-45

40 And a leper came to him beseeching him, and kneeling said to him, “If you will, you can make me clean.” 41 Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, “I will; be clean.” 42 And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. 43 And he sternly charged him, and sent him away at once, 44 and said to him, “See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, for a proof to the people.” 45 But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

Daily Thoughts for the Year for Priests (January 14)

14 January
Forming responsible people

It would be too easy to associate only with people who desire comfortable lives, who wish just to be “towed along”, to be helped or assisted, or just to receive. With them you can play the part of big brother, making them dependent on you.
Your role ought to be that of forming responsible people who want to stand on their own two feet, like real men and women.
It is hard, but you must be decisive and help others to rouse themselves from inactivity, to think for themselves, to organise their own lives, to stand up for themselves, and if necessary to disagree with you.
In that way you will be truly happy to see them growing alongside you.

培养有责任感的人

如果只与那些喜欢悠游自在,甘愿做随从的好好先生相处,未免太容易了。这些人只愿跟在别人后边,只想接受,常等着别人来施惠帮助;你在他们中扮演着大哥的角色,俨然是不可或缺的重要人物。
其实,你的任务是培养有责任感的人,即那些不依赖他人,并名实相符的人。
这是相当困难的,但你必须下定决心,来帮助人摆脱麻木的状态,要培养人独立思考,自我筹措,敢于应战的能力;如果必要,也敢于挑战你的思想观点。
那时你将真正喜乐地看到:他们在同你一起成长。

每日聖言靜思 常年期第一週 (週四) 1月14日

谷1:40-45 (其他經文──撒上4:1-11 詠44)
有一個癩病人來到耶穌跟前,跪下求他說:「你若願意,就能潔淨我。」耶穌動了憐憫的心,就伸手撫摸他,向他說:「我願意,你潔淨了吧!」癩病立時脫離了他,他就潔淨了。然後,耶穌嚴厲警告他,立即催他走,並向他說:「當心!什麼也不可告訴人,但去叫司祭檢驗你,並為你的潔淨,奉獻梅瑟所規定的,給他們當作證據。」但那人一出去,便開始極力宣揚,把這事傳揚開了,以致耶穌不能再公然進城,只好留在外邊荒野的地方;但人們卻從各處到他跟前來。

默 想

  • 換著你做那被耶穌醫好的癩病人,你也會禁不住極力宣揚此事,因為切切實實地,耶穌在你身上行了大事。
  • 只要你經歷過耶穌,感激之情由心底發出,你自然禁不住要表達、要宣揚。福傳的道理,如出一轍。
  • 你曾否讓耶穌的恩在你身上彰顯?你對遇到耶穌,究竟有多大的體會、感激、動容?值得反省,今天我們的福傳力度不足,原因為何?
  • 你曾否真正遇上這位你聲稱是你生命的主?

一言為定 (2010年1月14日)

「耶穌動了憐憫的心,就伸手撫摸他,向他說:『我願意,你潔淨了罷!』」 (谷1:41)

耶穌還未說出『我願意』時,已動了憐憫的心,並伸手撫摸他。
愛德的第一步,是用『心』兼『行動』

「耶穌往一座名叫納因的城去,衪的門徒和許多群眾與衪同行。
臨近城門時,看,正抬出一個死人來,他是母親的獨生子,母親又是寡婦;且有本城的一大夥人陪著她。
主一看見她,就對她動了憐憫的心,向她說:『不要哭了!』
遂上前按住棺材,抬棺材的人就站住了。衪說:『青年人,我對你說:起來吧!』」 (路7:11-14)

「安息日,耶穌在一會堂裏施教。 有一女人,病魔纏身已十八年了,傴僂著,完全不能直立。
耶穌見了她,便叫她過來,給她說:『女人,你的病已消除了。』 遂給她按手,她即刻就挺直起來,光榮天主。」 (路13:10-13)

耶穌所實行的,也要求我們這樣做:「就如你派遣我到世界上來,照樣我也派遣他們到世界上去。 我為他們祝聖我自己,為叫他們也因真理而被祝聖。」 (若17:18-19)

耶穌所指出的真理,便是一份無私的愛,符合天主聖意的愛。
