神父講道 – 聖熱羅尼莫 (司鐸、聖師) (紀念) (週四) (2010年9月30日)

聖熱羅尼莫 (司鐸、聖師) (紀念)
恭讀聖路加福音 10:1-12
那時候,耶穌選定了七十二人,派遣他們兩個兩個地在他前面,到他自己將要去的各城各地去。
耶穌對他們說:「莊稼多而工人少,所以你們應當求莊稼的主人,派遣工人來,收割他的莊稼。你們去吧!看,我派遣你們猶如羔羊往狼群中。你們不要帶錢囊,不要帶口袋,也不要帶鞋;路上也不要向人請安。不論進了那一家,先說:願這一家平安!那裏如有和平之子,你們的和平就要停留在他身上;否則,仍歸於你們。你們要住在那一家,吃喝他們所供給的,因為工人自當有他的工資;你們不可從這一家遷移到另一家。不論進了那座城,人若接納你們,給你們擺上什麼,你們就吃什麼。要醫治城中的病人,並向他們說:天主的國已經臨近你們了。不論進了那座城,人如不接納你們,你們就出來,到街市上說:連你們城中粘在我們腳上的塵土,我們也要給你們拂下來;但是你們當知道:天主的國已經臨近了。我告訴你們:在那一日,索多瑪所受的懲罰,要比這座城容易忍受。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 10:1-12

1 After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. 2 And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4 Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road. 5 Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house. 8 Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you; 9 heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, 11 `Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off against you; nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’ 12 I tell you, it shall be more tolerable on that day for Sodom than for that town.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪18:1-5 (其他經文──依66:10-14   詠131)
門徒來到耶穌跟前說:「在天國裡究竟誰是最大的?」耶穌就叫一個小孩來,使他站在他們中間,說:「我實在告訴你們:你們若不悔改而變成如同小孩一樣,你們決不能進入天國。所以誰若自謙自卑如同這一個小孩,這人就是天國中最大的。無論誰因我的名字,收留一個這樣的小孩,就是收留我。」

默 想

  • 還有什麼是我們欠缺的?自謙自卑的決心。退一步,真的海闊天空。
  • 我們都當過小孩子,都明白、領略到小孩子那單純的心。我們都長大了,長大得、變得複雜化、社會化,對上主的心也難再一如小時候的單純。
  • 我們都知道,我們走不到回頭路,不再是小孩了!
  • 不過,我們得透過更深度的明白、領會,洞察到天父永遠比我們大、偉大,祂的長、闊、高、深、浩瀚感,足夠自覺自己的卑微、渺小,祂真是我們的天父,祂愛我們的深和厚,使我們在天國是最大的。
  • 當人感受自己的被寵、被愛、被無條件地接受,他在上主眼中就是那位被愛錫的小孩。
