聖西滿及聖猶達 (宗徒) (慶日)
恭讀聖路加福音 6:12-19
那時,耶穌出去,上山祈禱;他撤夜向天主祈禱。天一亮,他把門徒叫來,由他們中揀選了十二人,並稱他們為宗徒:即西滿,耶穌又給他起名叫伯多祿,和他的兄弟安德肋、雅各伯、若望、斐理伯、巴爾多祿茂、瑪竇、多默、阿耳斐的兒子雅各伯、號稱「熱誠者」的西滿、雅各伯的兄弟猶達和猶達斯依斯加略,他成了負賣者。
耶穌同他們下山,站在一塊平地上,有他的一大群門徒和很多從猶太、耶路撒冷及提洛和漆冬海邊來的群眾,他們來是為聽他講道,並為治好自己的病症;那些被邪魔纏擾的人都被治好了。群眾都設法觸摸他,因為有一種能力從他身上出來,治好眾人。

Feast of Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:12-19

12 In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. 13 And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; 14 Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, 15 and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, 16 and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. 17 And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; 18 and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. 19 And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came forth from him and healed them all.

路6:12-19 (其他經文──弗2:19-22 詠19)
耶穌出去,上山祈禱;他徹夜向天主祈禱。天一亮,他把門徒叫來,由他們中揀選了十二人,並稱他們為宗徒:即西滿,耶穌又給他起名叫伯多祿,和他的兄弟安德肋、雅各伯、若望、斐理伯、巴爾多祿茂、瑪竇、多默、阿耳斐的兒子雅各伯、號稱「熱誠者」的西滿、雅各伯的兄弟猶達和猶達斯依斯加略,他成了負賣者。耶穌同他們下山,站在一塊平地上,有他的一大群門徒和很多從猶太、耶路撒冷及提洛和漆冬海邊來的群眾,他們來是為聽他講道,並為治好自己的病症;那些被邪魔纏擾的人都被治好了。群眾都設法觸摸他,因為有一種能力從他身上出來,治好眾人。

默 想

  • 福音書的聖史,常描述耶穌徹夜祈禱、清晨上山祈禱……,連天主子都需要持之以恒,日復日、年復年祈禱,耶穌渴望與天父保持親密的關係。
  • 何況我們每一個跟隨耶穌的信徒呢?我們沒有不祈禱的任何藉口。忙碌、怕悶、不知道怎祈禱等等,全部是藉口,說穿了,是我們的心未「到」。
  • 靈命需要成長,我們不應再是信仰靈命上的嬰孩,只會吃奶。如果我們祈禱,只因為「知道需要祈禱」、「祈禱很重要」,停留在「知」的階段,很難使我們更進一步。在祈禱中,我們開始甘之如飴,親近上主,親近這位我們生命的師傅、救主,那就可以完全不一樣的了。
  • 當祈禱、親近上主,成為我們生命力量的來源與「食糧」,我們會更明白主耶穌,更貼近祂的心腸。
