路9:22-25  (申30:15-20  詠1)

耶穌對門徒說:「人子必須受許多苦,被長老、司祭長和經師們棄絕,並且要被殺,但第三天必要復活。」
他又對眾人說:「誰若願意跟隨我,該棄絕自己,天天背著自己的十字架跟隨我。因為誰若願意救自己的生命,必要喪失性命;但誰若為我的緣故喪失自己的性命,這人必能救得性命。人縱然賺得了全世界,卻喪失了自己,或賠上自己,為他有什麼益處呢?

 

默 想

  • 這是耶穌鐵一般的要求,是跟隨祂的必要條件。十分難做吧?!何謂喪失性命?又何謂救得自己的性命?
  • 當我們願意棄絕那自我──容易將我們矇騙的自我,或稱小我、自私的我,背起十字架跟隨祂,我們將自由地獲得真我,那真我之中正正尋得到上主。
  • 我們很多時花心思在贏得全世界,卻不惜賠上自己,但有時在我們的價值觀之中,我們竟「欺騙」自己,滿以為這樣十分值得。不是嗎?在我們的行動中,往往正是這樣,「賺得了全世界,卻賠上自己」。我們如此這般作了,卻可憐地不自知。

恭讀聖若望福音 1:1-12

在起初已有聖言,聖言與天主同在,聖言就是天主。聖言在起初,就與天主同在。萬物是藉著他而造成的;凡受造的,沒有一樣不是由他而造成的。在他內有生命,這生命是人的光。光在黑暗中照耀,黑暗決勝不過他。
曾有一人,是由天主派遣來的,名叫若翰。這人來,是為作證,為給光作證,為使眾人藉他而信。他不是那光,只是為給那光作證。
那照亮每人的真光,正在進入這世界;他已在世界上,世界原是藉他造成的;但世界卻不認識他。他來到了自己的地方,自己的人卻沒有接受他。但是,凡接受他的,他給他們,即給那些信他名字的人權能,好成為天主的子女。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 1:1-12

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God; 3 all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came for testimony, to bear witness to the light, that all might believe through him.
8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness to the light. 9 The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world knew him not. 11 He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. 12 But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God;

—The Gospel of the Lord.
