聖西滿及聖猶達 (宗徒) (慶日)

恭讀聖路加福音 6:12-19

那時,耶穌出去,上山祈禱;他撤夜向天主祈禱。天一亮,他把門徒叫來,由他們中揀選了十二人,並稱他們為宗徒:即西滿,耶穌又給他起名叫伯多祿,和他的兄弟安德肋、雅各伯、若望、斐理伯、巴爾多祿茂、瑪竇、多默、阿耳斐的兒子雅各伯、號稱「熱誠者」的西滿、雅各伯的兄弟猶達和猶達斯依斯加略,他成了負賣者。
耶穌同他們下山,站在一塊平地上,有他的一大群門徒和很多從猶太、耶路撒冷及提洛和漆冬海邊來的群眾,他們來是為聽他講道,並為治好自己的病症;那些被邪魔纏擾的人都被治好了。群眾都設法觸摸他,因為有一種能力從他身上出來,治好眾人。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:12-19

12 In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. 13 And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; 14 Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, 15 and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, 16 and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. 17 And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; 18 and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. 19 And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came forth from him and healed them all.

路6:12-19  (聖西滿及聖猶達)  (弗2:19-22  詠19)

耶穌出去,上山祈禱;他徹夜向天主祈禱。天一亮,他把門徒叫來,由他們中揀選了十二人,並稱他們為宗徒:即西滿,耶穌又給他起名叫伯多祿,和他的兄弟安德肋、雅各伯、若望、斐理伯、巴爾多祿茂、瑪竇、多默、阿耳斐的兒子雅各伯、號稱「熱誠者」的西滿、雅各伯的兄弟猶達和猶達斯依斯加略,他成了負賣者。
耶穌同他們下山,站在一塊平地上,有他的一大群門徒和很多從猶太、耶路撒冷及提洛和漆冬海邊來的群眾,他們來是為聽他講道,並為治好自己的病症;那些被邪魔纏繞的人都被治好了。群眾都設法觸摸他,因為有一種能力從他身上出來,治好眾人。

默 想

  • 場景氣氛鬧哄哄,耶穌終日忙碌著,但從來不會忘記祈禱。他選擇親近天父的地點與時間,多是在山上及清晨黎明時分。請大家不要忘記,耶穌的身分是誰?他是天主子,他也十分懇切、勤力、不鬆懈地徹夜祈禱,他享受與天父會晤;我們更沒有不祈禱的藉口。
  • 我們不夠「勤力」,因為我們對上主的渴望未夠,我們的愛不足。不要緊,天主不是要我們歉疚,祂想我們親近祂,培養對祂的渴望。上主要我們享受與祂在一起的時候。
  • 耶穌徹夜祈禱之後,來到人群中,選出心愛的十二名門徒,我們或可意會到,耶穌在作出重要決定之際,更需要祈禱。
  • 我們在作出重要抉擇前,同樣需要一顆有上主臨在的心,嘗試聆聽自己的心、上主的「聲音」,在那微風細雨的心境內,作出分辨,作出抉擇。
