聖十字若望 (司鐸、聖師) (紀念)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 21:23-27

那時候,耶穌進入聖殿,正教訓人時,司祭長和民間的長老來到他跟前說:「你憑什麽權柄作這些事?誰給了你這種權柄?」耶穌回答說:「我也問你們一句話,你們若答覆我,我就告訴你們:我憑什麽權柄作這些事。若翰的洗禮,是從那裏來的?是從天上來的?還是從人來的?」他們心中思量說:如果我們說:是從天上來的,他必對我們說:你們為什麼不信他?如果我們說:是從人來的,我們害怕民眾,因爲眾人都以若翰為一位先知。他們便回答耶穌說:「我們不知道。」耶穌也對他們說:「我也不告訴你們:我憑什麽權柄作這些事。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 21:23-27

23 And when he entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came up to him as he was teaching, and said, “By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?” 24 Jesus answered them, “I also will ask you a question; and if you tell me the answer, then I also will tell you by what authority I do these things. 25 The baptism of John, whence was it? From heaven or from men?” And they argued with one another, “If we say, `From heaven,’ he will say to us, `Why then did you not believe him?’ 26 But if we say, `From men,’ we are afraid of the multitude; for all hold that John was a prophet.” 27 So they answered Jesus, “We do not know.” And he said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.

聖十字若望  瑪21:23-27  (戶24:2-7, 15-17  詠25)

耶穌進入聖殿,正教訓人時,司祭長和民間的長老來到他跟前說:「你憑什麽權柄作這些事?誰給了你這種權柄?」耶穌回答說:「我也問你們一句話,你們若答覆我,我就告訴你們:我憑什麽權柄作這些事。若翰的洗禮,是從那裡來的?是從天上來的?還是從人來的?」他們心中思量說:如果我們說:是從天上來的,他必對我們說:你們為什麼不信他?如果我們說:是從人來的,我們害怕民眾,因爲眾人都以若翰為一位先知。他們便回答耶穌說:「我們不知道。」耶穌也對他們說:「我也不告訴你們:我憑什麽權柄作這些事。」

 

默 想

  • 這就是智慧!不必硬碰,但卻叫人心服口服!
  • 我們平時的選擇卻是硬碰或退縮。結果卻是兩敗俱傷或是任人魚肉。
  • 怎樣才能獲得智慧?就是要達到沒有自我,不是為了自己利益,毫無執著下,智慧便油然而生。
  • 若要學得耶穌的智慧,我們便要放下自我。
