聖熱羅尼莫 (司鐸、聖師) (紀念)

恭讀聖路加福音 9:51-56

耶穌被接升天的日期,就快要來到,他遂決意向耶路撒冷走去,便打發使者在他面前走;他們去了,進了撒瑪黎雅人的一個村莊,好為他準備住宿。人們卻不收留他,因為他是面朝耶路撒冷去的。雅各伯及若望兩個門徒見了,便說:「主,你願意我們叫火自天降下,焚毀他們嗎?」耶穌轉過身來斥責了他們。他們遂又到別的村莊去了。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 9:51-56

51 When the days drew near for him to be received up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him; 53 but the people would not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. 54 And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, “Lord, do you want us to bid fire come down from heaven and consume them?” 55 But he turned and rebuked them. 56 And they went on to another village.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路9:51-56  (聖熱羅尼莫)  (約3:1-3, 11-17, 20-23  詠88)

耶穌被接升天的日期,就快要來到,他遂決意向耶路撒冷走去,便打發使者在他面前走;他們去了,進了撒瑪黎雅人的一個村莊,好為他準備住宿。人們卻不收留他,因為他是面朝耶路撒冷去的。雅各伯及若望兩個門徒見了,便說:「主,你願意我們叫火自天降下,焚毀他們嗎?」耶穌轉過身來斥責了他們。他們遂又到別的村莊去了。

默 想

  • 我們見到耶穌這份沉著的堅持,也不被人所歡迎,他深知自己走向一條什麼的路──準備犠牲的路,因為眾人心硬。
  • 兩名門徒也因此大動肝火,竟口出惡言,向眾人顯殺機。耶穌貫徹向眾人示範愛的精神,扭轉門徒的意向,也為了表達更深度的愛與和平。
  • 我們見到一位十分具有感染力的天主子,他絕對有能力在眾人前施展威能,叫他們信服;他沒有這樣做,他以自己的軟弱,再一次給人那完全的示範,讓人經驗祂的恩寵與慈愛。
  • 藉聖熱羅尼莫的瞻禮,我們記住這位教父的鍥而不捨,為聖言付出他畢生的努力。今天,我們有幸讀到上主的聖言,他的功勞非常大。
