神父講道 – 聖灰禮儀後 (週六) (2015年2月21日)

聖路加福音 5:27-32

那時候,耶穌出去,看見一個稅吏,名叫肋未,在稅關那裡坐著,便對他說:「跟隨我吧!」他便捨棄一切,起來跟隨了他。肋未在自己家中為他擺設了盛筵,有許多稅吏和其他的人,與他們一同坐席。法利塞人和他們的經師就憤憤不平,對他的門徒說:「你們為什麼同稅吏和罪人一起吃喝?」耶穌回答他們說:「不是健康的人需要醫生,而是有病的人。我不是來召叫義人,而是召叫罪人悔改。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 5:27-32

7 After this he went out, and saw a tax collector, named Levi, sitting at the tax office; and he said to him, “Follow me.” 28 And he left everything, and rose and followed him. 29 And Levi made him a great feast in his house; and there was a large company of tax collectors and others sitting at table with them. 30 And the Pharisees and their scribes murmured against his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” 31 And Jesus answered them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; 32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

每日聖言靜思 四旬期第一主日 2月22日

信仰生活互動坊、塔冷通心靈書舍

讀經一   創 9:8-15  詠 : 25
讀經二     伯前3:18-22
主日福音 谷 1:12-15

聖神催促耶穌到曠野去。耶穌在曠野裡,四十天之久,受撒旦的試探,與野獸在一起,並有天使服事他。若翰被監禁後,耶穌來到加里肋亞,宣講天主的福音,說:「時期已滿,天主的國臨近了,你們悔改,信從福音吧!」

 

默 想

  • 耶穌也沒有例外,祂向眾人宣講天主的國臨近,並促人悔改之先,曾被聖神催促到曠野,經驗連番試探與煉淨。
  • 曠野,代表一個鍛煉、煉淨的地方,即使今天我們不會到達遠在城外的絕對荒野的曠野,但內心需要經歷那處於曠野的境界,在那裡,很可能我們也需迎向內心湧現的各種試探和誘惑,這一切,成為燃燒的火焰,淨化我們,亦如基督一樣,勇敢地走進那受試煉的曠野中,與內在的真我和上主會面。
  • 踏入四旬期第一主日,提醒我們,也跟耶穌一同走進曠野,經驗內心的各方面掙扎,但也一如耶穌,不害怕、勇敢地,體會聖神的同在,給我們鮮活的力量,面對自己,面對試探,走向上主。
