每日聖言靜思 常年期第十二週 (週三) 6月23日

信仰生活互動坊、塔冷通心靈書舍

瑪7:15-20 (其他經文──列下22:8-13;23:1-3    詠119)
耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們要提防假先知!他們來到你們跟前,外披羊毛,內裡卻是兇殘的豺狼。你們可憑他們的果實辨別他們:荊棘上豈能收到葡萄?或者蒺藜上豈能收到無花果?這樣,凡是好樹都結好果子;而壞樹都結壞果子;好樹不能結壞果子,壞樹也不能結好果子。凡不結好果子的樹,必要砍倒,投入火中。所以,你們可憑他們的果實辨別他們。」

默 想

  • 有時,我們以為自己是羊,誰知卻原來是豺狼。例如我們口中說已原諒了某某,但卻原來連自己也欺騙了,心中沒有真正原諒。
  • 所以,耶穌說憑果實去辨別。但當我們要欺騙自己時,連壞果實也會看成是好的,我們的眼睛腦袋會選擇地判斷。只有別人才能看得清楚。
  • 兼聽則明。若當所有人都認為我有問題時,我必然是有問題的。不要想像成只有自己才對的先知。

主日講道 – 常年期第十二主日 (2010年6月20日)

(Location: Adoration Chapel in St. James Church)

恭讀聖路加福音 9:18-24
有一天,耶穌獨自祈禱,門徒同他在一起。他問他們說:「眾人說我是誰?」他們回答說:「有人說是洗者若翰;有人卻說是厄里亞;還有人說是古時的一位先知復活了。」他問他們說:「但你們說我是誰呢?」伯多祿回答說:「天主的受傅者。」但耶穌嚴厲囑咐他們,不要把這事告訴人,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性命,必要喪失性命;但誰若為我的原故喪失自己的性命,這人必能救得性命。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 9:18-24

18 Now it happened that as he was praying alone the disciples were with him; and he asked them, “Who do the people say that I am?” 19 And they answered, “John the Baptist; but others say, Eli’jah; and others, that one of the old prophets has risen.” 20 And he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered, “The Christ of God.” 21 But he charged and commanded them to tell this to no one, 22 saying, “The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.” 23 And he said to all, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake, he will save it.

—The Gospel of the Lord.
