讀經一 德15:16-21  詠119   讀經二 格前2:6-10
主日福音  瑪5:17-37

耶穌對門徒說:
「你們不要以為我來是廢除法律或先知,我來不是為廢除,而是為成全。我實實在在告訴你們:即使天地過去了,一撇或一畫,也決不會從法律上過去,且必要全部完成。
「所以,誰若廢除這些誡命中最小的一條,也這樣教訓人,在天國裡,他將稱為最小的;但誰若遵守了誡命,也這樣教訓人,這人在天國裡,將稱為大的。
「我告訴你們:除非你們的義德,超過經師和法利塞人的義德,你們決不能進入天國。
「你們一向聽過對古人說:『不可殺人!』誰若殺了人,應受裁判。我卻對你們說:凡向自己弟兄發怒的,就要受裁判;誰若向自己的弟兄說『傻子』,就要受議會的裁判;誰說『瘋子』,就要受火獄的罰。
「所以,若你獻禮時,在祭壇前,想起你的弟兄有什麼埋怨你的事,你就該把你的禮物留在祭壇前,先去與你的弟兄和好,然後再來獻你的禮物。當你和你的對頭還在路上,趕快與他和解,免得對頭把你交給判官,判官交給差役,把你關在監獄裡。我實在告訴你:除非你還清最後一文錢,決不能從那裡出來。
「你們一向聽說過:『不可姦淫!』我卻對你們說:凡注視婦女,有意貪戀她的,這人已在心裡姦淫了她。
「若是你的右眼使你跌倒,把它挖出來,扔掉,因為你喪失一個肢體,比你全身投入地獄,為你更好;若你的右手使你跌倒,砍下它,扔掉,因為你喪失一個肢體,比你全身投入地獄,為你更好。
「你們又聽說過:『誰若休妻,就該給她休書。』我卻給你們說:除了姘居外,凡休妻的,便是叫她受姦污;並且誰若娶被休的婦人,就是犯姦淫。
「你們又一向聽過對古人說:『不可發虛誓!要向上主償還你的誓願!』我卻對你們說:你們總不可發誓:不可指天,因為天,是天主的寶座;不可指地,因為地,是他的腳凳;不可指耶路撒冷,因為她是大王的城市;也不可指你的頭發誓,因為你不能使一根頭髮變白,或變黑。
「你們應這樣:是就說是,非就說非;其他多餘的,便是出於邪惡。」

默 想

  • 耶穌將法律的真義一一重申過來,希望我們從最根本、最深層去明白,甚至清楚地實踐出來。
  • 莫怪乎他也叫我們划到深處,活出法律的精髓,而非用作攻擊及傷害人的武器。
  • 「是就說是,非就說非」的人生觀,將會是簡單、快樂、明朗的人生,表裡分明,把陰暗面減到最小。
  • 我們普遍的問題是:小事執著、拘泥,大事馬馬虎虎。我們慣性地只從表面看,不願意或懶於深入核心;單單從表面上往複雜的範疇裡鑽。
  • 結果,失卻單純的心,又缺乏深入探索真象的勇氣和恒心,只在情緒、負面感受裡自困著。

(6th Sunday in Ordinary Time)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 5:17-37

17 “Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets; I have come not to abolish them but to fulfil them. 18 For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away,not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. 19 Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 21 “You have heard that it was said to the men of old, `You shall not kill; and whoever kills shall be liable to judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that every one who is angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother shall be liable to the council, and whoever says, `You fool!’ shall be liable to the hell of fire. 23 So if you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Make friends quickly with your accuser, while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison; 26 truly, I say to you, you will never get out till you have paid the last penny.
27 “You have heard that it was said, `You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that every one who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell. 31 “It was also said, `Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that every one who divorces his wife, except on the ground of unchastity, makes her an adulteress; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
33 “Again you have heard that it was said to the men of old, `You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ 34 But I say to you, Do not swear at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 Let what you say be simply `Yes’ or `No’; anything more than this comes from evil.
