神父講道 – 常年期第十一週 (週一) (2014年6月16日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 5:38-42

耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們一向聽說過:『以眼還眼,以牙還牙。』我卻對你們說:不要抵抗惡人;而且,若有人掌擊你的右頰,你把另一面也轉給他。那與你爭訟,拿你內衣的,你連外衣也給他。若有人強迫你走一千步,你就同他走兩千步。」求你的,就給他;向你借貸的,你不要拒絕。」

—上主的話。

(11th Week in Ordinary Time – Monday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 5:38-42

38 “You have heard that it was said, `An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I say to you, Do not resist one who is evil. But if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also; 40 and if any one would sue you and take your coat, let him have your cloak as well; 41 and if any one forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42 Give to him who begs from you, and do not refuse him who would borrow from you.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪5:38-42  (讀經 ── 列上21:1-16  詠5)

耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們一向聽說過:『以眼還眼,以牙還牙。』我卻對你們說:不要抵抗惡人;而且,若有人掌擊你的右頰,你把另一面也轉給他。那與你爭訟,拿你內衣的,你連外衣也給他。若有人強迫你走一千步,你就同他走兩千步。」求你的,就給他;向你借貸的,你不要拒絕。」

 

默 想

  • 以牙還牙,固然不對,但我們應該給打嗎?或甚至乎給人虐待嗎?
  • 其實,耶穌的智慧在於尋求空間。若我們以死力和別人抗爭,我們便已耗盡所有力量,看不到第三條路。
  • 在爭取正義的過程中,若我們的心態能做到不你死我亡,這世界便會出現更多的可能。
  • 選擇,在乎我們怎樣看這世界。
