神父講道 – 常年期第二十三週 (週一) (2013年9月9日)

恭讀聖路加福音 6:6-11

在一個安息日,耶穌進了會堂施教。在那裏有一個人,他的右手乾枯了。經師和法利塞人窺察他是否在安息日治病,好尋找藉口控告他。他看透了他們的心思,就對那枯了手的人說:「起來,站在中間!」他遂站了起來。耶穌對他們說:「我問你們:安息日是許行善呢?還是許作惡呢?是救命呢?還是喪命呢?」他環視眾人一週,就對那人說:「伸出你的手來!」那人照樣一做,他的手便復了原。他們狂怒填胸,彼此商議,要怎樣來對付耶穌。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:6-11

6 On another Sabbath, when he entered the synagogue and taught, a man was there whose right hand was withered. 7 And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him, to see whether he would heal on the Sabbath, so that they might find an accusation against him. 8 But he knew their thoughts, and he said to the man who had the withered hand, “Come and stand here.” And he rose and stood there. 9 And Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to destroy it?” 10 And he looked around on them all, and said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” And he did so, and his hand was restored. 11 But they were filled with fury and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路6:6-11  (讀經 ── 哥1:24-2:3  詠62)

在一個安息日,耶穌進了會堂施教。在那裡有一個人,他的右手乾枯了。經師和法利塞人窺察他是否在安息日治病,好尋找藉口控告他。他看透了他們的心思,就對那枯了手的人說:「起來,站在中間!」他遂站了起來。耶穌對他們說:「我問你們:安息日是許行善呢?還是許作惡呢?是救命呢?還是喪命呢?」他環視眾人一週,就對那人說:「伸出你的手來!」那人照樣一做,他的手便復了原。他們狂怒填胸,彼此商議,要怎樣來對付耶穌。

默 想

  • 或多或少,我們每天總要作出一些抉擇。這裡,耶穌給了我們簡單明確的指引,那人與事,是帶來善或惡?福樂或災禍與仇恨?救命或喪命?
  • 這與倫理神學上的基本抉擇很有關係。今天,我是向天主靠近多一點,還是變得自私、以自我為中心?
  • 要給自己鍛煉分辨的智慧,也不要用自圓其說的藉口。向左走,向右走,內裡的良心會告訴我們。
