神父講道 – 常年期第七週 (週二) (2012年2月21日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 9:30-37

那時候,耶穌和他的門徒起身,經過加里肋亞;耶穌卻不願叫人知道。因為那時耶穌教訓他的門徒,給他們說:「人子將要被交在人手中,為人所殺;被殺以後,過了三天,他必要復活。」門徒卻不明白這些話,又害怕詢問他。
他們來到葛法翁,進到家裏,耶穌問他們說:「你們在路上爭論了什麼?」他們都默不作聲,因為他們在路上彼此爭論誰最大。耶穌坐下,叫過那十二人來,給他們說:「誰若想做第一個,他就得做眾人中最末的一個,並要做眾人的僕役。」遂領過一個小孩子來,放在門徒中間,抱起他來,給他們說:「誰若因我的名字,收留一個這樣的小孩,就是收留我;誰若收留我,並不是收留我,而是收留那派遣我來的。」

—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 9:30-37

30 They went on from there and passed through Galilee. And he would not have any one know it; 31 for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of man will be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him; and when he is killed, after three days he will rise.” 32 But they did not understand the saying, and they were afraid to ask him. 33 And they came to Caper’na-um; and when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?” 34 But they were silent; for on the way they had discussed with one another who was the greatest. 35 And he sat down and called the twelve; and he said to them, “If any one would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” 36 And he took a child, and put him in the midst of them; and taking him in his arms, he said to them, 37 “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷9:30-37    (讀經 ── 雅4:1-10   詠55)
耶穌和他的門徒起身,經過加里肋亞;耶穌卻不願叫人知道。因為那時耶穌教訓他的門徒,給他們說:「人子將要被交在人手中,為人所殺;被殺以後,過了三天,他必要復活。」門徒卻不明白這些話,又害怕詢問他。
他們來到葛法翁,進到家裡,耶穌問他們說:「你們在路上爭論了什麼?」他們都默不作聲,因為他們 在路上彼此爭論誰最大。耶穌坐下,叫過那十二人來,給他們說:「誰若想做第一個,他就得做眾人中最末 的一個,並要做眾人的僕役。」遂領過一個小孩子來,放在門徒中間,抱起他來,給他們說:「誰若因我的 名字,收留一個這樣的小孩,就是收留我;誰若收留我,並不是收留我,而是收留那派遣我來的。」

默 想

  • 甘願做眾人中最末的一個,甘願服務別人,作大家的僕役,是一種很大的修為。
  • 自滿、要做最大的,等於是我們內在的「不隨意肌」,我們害怕被傷害、被看輕、被蔑視……我們似乎都不願意做那最末的,殊不知,有能力作真正的僕役,服務眾人者,將會享受最大的自由,領會內在甘美的、廣闊的空間。
  • 耶穌早已洞悉門徒的軟弱與恐懼,他願意以最徹底的愛,向門徒和世人示範最徹底的愛,甚至不怕受傷的、卻是愛得最痛的愛。
  • 這份精神就是僕役的精神。
  • 當我們再次服務別人時,問問自己:是否願意放下自己,體會那內在的自由與空間。
