Blessed are the followers of Christ

今天的福音只有兩句。在瑪竇福音裡記載比喻的同一章中,耶穌解釋了祂用比喻向群眾說話的原因。耶穌讓門徒知道他們是如此幸運,「你們的眼睛有福,因為看得見;你們的耳朵有福,因為聽得見。我實在告訴你們:有許多先知和義人,想看你們所看見的,而沒有看到;想聽你們所聽見的,而沒有聽到。」 耶穌的門徒能聽祂親口講論聖言,能跟祂一起同行,是極大的福分。他們也許到了後來,當這篇福音寫成的時候才意識到自己是多麼有福。即使是為二千年後的我們,能夠有天主聖言去指引我們的生活也是極大的福分。我們既然意識到這份福氣,就更要在生活中活出福音精神,使更多人能分沾這份恩寵。 Today’s gospel reading is in the chapter containing the parables of the Kingdom. After having spoken of the reasons why he taught in parables, Jesus told his disciples how privileged they were. “Blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear.” And he continued, “Many prophets and righteous people […]
