聖依搦斯 (貞女、殉道) (紀念)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 2:23-28

有一次,正當安息日,耶穌從麥田裏路過,他的門徒在行路時掐食起麥穗來。法利塞人向耶穌說:「你看!他們為什麼做安息日不許做的事?」耶穌對法利塞人說:「你們從未讀過:達味在急迫中和同他一起的人,在饑餓時所作的事嗎?當厄貝雅塔爾作大司祭時,達味怎樣進了天主的殿,吃了除司祭外,誰也不許吃的供餅,並且還給了同他一起的人?」耶穌又對他們說:「安息日是為人立的,並不是人為了安息日;所以,人子也是安息日的主。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 2:23-28

23 One Sabbath he was going through the grainfields; and as they made their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain. 24 And the Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the Sabbath?” 25 And he said to them, “Have you never read what David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and those who were with him: 26 how he entered the house of God, when Abi’athar was high priest, and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those who were with him?” 27 And he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath; 28 so the Son of man is lord even of the Sabbath.”

谷2:23-28  (讀經 ── 撒上16:1-13  詠89)

有一次,正當安息日,耶穌從麥田裡路過,他的門徒在行路時掐食起麥穗來。法利塞人向耶穌說:「你看!他們為什麼做安息日不許做的事?」耶穌對法利塞人說:「你們從未讀過:達味在急迫中和同他一起的人,在饑餓時所作的事嗎?當厄貝雅塔爾作大司祭時,達味怎樣進了天主的殿,吃了除司祭外,誰也不許吃的供餅,並且還給了同他一起的人?」耶穌又對他們說:「安息日是為人立的,並不是人為了安息日;所以,人子也是安息日的主。」

 

默 想

  • 今天我們有沒有一些規矩其實是很法利塞的?可以說,任何好的東西,當變成規條時,都會變成「法利塞化」。
  • 例如,我們每星期參與感恩祭,若只因為教會規定,而不是渴望朝拜天主時,便是法利塞的態度。
  • 我們作教友的固不宜有法利塞態度,其實神父也不宜。因為若認為教友有守聖教四規,便滿全了應盡的責任,這便忽略了教友的內心是否真的在追求成長。
  • 這就是質和量的分別。現今世界,似乎重視量多於質,是我們的一大危機!
