Pope Francis: Knowledge is empty unless it leads to love

(CNA/EWTN News) On Wednesday Pope Francis said that just because someone is an expert in God’s law and a strict adherent to the rules doesn’t necessarily mean they know how to love and serve others. “It’s not automatic that whoever frequents the House of God and knows his mercy knows how to love their neighbor. It’s not automatic,” the Pope said April 27.

Jesus Healed Ten Lepers

這個主日的福音,是關於耶穌遇見並醫治十個痳瘋病人,以及他們後來如何回應祂的故事。 由於痳瘋病會傳染,所以當痳瘋病人遇見耶穌時,都遠遠地站著,對祂大聲喊說:「師父,耶穌,可憐我們吧!」當耶穌說:「你們去,叫司祭們檢驗你們吧!」他們便服從地去,證明他們對耶穌都有一定的信德。他們去見司祭的途中,便痊癒了。 這個由司祭們檢驗的舉動,對他們這些痳瘋病人來說十分重要,因為在當時的社會,痳瘋病人都受到排斥,必須由司祭檢驗並確定他們已經潔淨,才能重新歸於社會。(肋 14:1-32) 當痳瘋病人都得到潔淨後,卻只有一個回到耶穌跟前。聖經特別提到這是一個被猶太人歧視的撒瑪黎雅人。一方面,這顯示出耶穌的仁慈確是一視同仁;祂沒有因為病人是猶太人還是外邦人,而給他們不同的待遇。另一方面,憑耶穌對他說的話,我們看到祂所重視的不是人的出身和種族,而是人對祂的回應。雖然另外九個痳瘋病人同樣相信耶穌的大能,並對祂言聽計從,但當得到他們想要的之後,卻沒有再回頭。這個撒瑪黎雅人卻回來,大聲光榮天主,並跪伏在耶穌腳前感謝祂。 耶穌最後對他說:「你的信德救了你。」留意祂說的不再只是肉體上的治癒,因為他的痳瘋病早已被醫好。耶穌這次說的救贖,是更深一層,包括靈魂的救贖。 跟隨耶穌的人,可能當初也如那些痳瘋病人一樣,為了某些目的或需要而尋求祂的援助,但這並不重要,重要的是讓我們與祂的關係不只於此。耶穌願意成為我們生命中的主,就讓我們對祂全心全意的皈依,時常光榮、感謝天主,也能獲得真正的救贖。 這篇默想由生命恩泉文摘編輯小組撰寫,內容以下列文章為根據: Commentaries on the daily readings by Sacred Space, 常年期第二十八主日. The gospel reading for this Sunday is about Jesus and the ten lepers who came to ask for His mercy. Because leprosy is contagious, the lepers stood from Jesus at a distance. The way they shouted to Jesus, […]

The Compassionate Samaritan

路加福音 10:25-37 耶穌在福音中形容的撒瑪黎雅人,其實就是祂自己。祂在我們還在罪惡中跌倒、受傷、甚至半死不活時,看顧了我們,讓我們透過祂建立的聖事得到重生、治癒,還把我們帶回祂那永恆的羊棧。當祂說:「你去,也照樣做吧!」就是教我們跟隨祂一樣,懷著憐憫的心,毫無保留地照顧近人的需要。 根據當時的風俗,撒瑪黎雅人不但與猶太人不相往來,甚至互相鄙視,但耶穌口中的撒瑪黎雅人在遇見從耶路撒冷下來卻遭遇了強盜的人時,卻因著一顆憐憫的心,願意打破隔閡為他處理傷口,帶他到客店照料。 其實仔細想想,這樣做不但冒險、費時,也很昂貴。撒瑪黎雅人不知道受傷的人是否強盜假扮,或附近會否埋伏了他的同黨,所以停下來看顧他是很危險的。他也可能正匆忙路過;為這陌生的傷者停下來,再送他到客店,不但耽誤了行程,甚至還要改道而行。最後他為這陌生人對店主說:「請你小心看護他!不論額外花費多少,等我回來時,必要還給你。」店主將要他付的費用,他真的付得起嗎? 我們在幫助別人前,總會衡量自己有沒有時間、能力和金錢,還會看看那人的身份,但耶穌的教導,卻是要我們看別人的需要為先,這就是愛人如己的表現。 「你去,也照樣做吧!」 Luke 10:25-37 Jesus is the Good Samaritan described in His parable. While we’re still trapped, wounded and half-dead in sin, He came and picked us up. With His sacraments He continues to heal and strengthen us, and guide us into His everlasting kingdom. When He said: “Go and […]
