神父講道 – 四旬期第三週 (週五) (2013年3月8日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 12:28-34

那時候,有一個經師上前來,問耶穌說:「一切誡命中,那一條是第一條呢?」耶穌回答說:「第一條是:『以色列!你要聽!上主我們的天主是唯一的天主。你們當全心、全靈、全力愛上主,你的天主。』第二條是:『你應當愛近人如你自己。』再沒有別的誡命比這兩條更大的了。」那經師對耶穌說:「不錯,師傅說的實在對:他是唯一的,除他以外,再沒有別的:應以全心、全意、全力愛他,並愛近人如自己,遠超過一切全燔祭和犧牲。」耶穌見他回答的明智,便對他說:「你離天主的國不遠了。」從此,沒有人敢再問他。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 12:28-34

28 And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the first of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The first is, `Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one; 30 and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this, `You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” 32 And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that he is one, and there is no other but he; 33 and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34 And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any question.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷12:28-34   (讀經 ── 歐14:2-10   詠81)
有一個經師上前來,問耶穌說:「一切誡命中,哪一條是第一條呢?」耶穌回答說:「第一條是:『以色列!你要聽!上主我們的天主是唯一的天主。你們當全心、全靈、全力愛上主,你的天主。』第二條是:『你應當愛近人如你自己。』再沒有別的誡命比這兩條更大的了。」那經師對耶穌說:「不錯,師傅說的實在對:他是唯一的,除他以外,再沒有別的:應以全心、全意、全力愛他,並愛近人如自己,遠超過一切全燔祭和犧牲。」耶穌見他回答的明智,便對他說:「你離天主的國不遠了。」從此,沒有人敢再問他。

 

默 想

  • 以色列人以全燔祭作為祭獻和祈禱,就像我們的彌撒和祈禱一樣。
  • 但耶穌同意愛主愛人比祭獻更重要。上主在歐瑟亞先知中也說過喜歡仁愛勝過祭獻。
  • 套用在今天,就是天主喜歡我們活出信仰的本質勝過望彌撒!
  • 當然,望彌撒根本就是信仰本質之一。
  • 可惜的是,我們不少人只是望彌撒,其餘什麼都不做了。這還能說是有信仰的本質嗎?聖經所譴責的,正是這一類型的信仰!
