主與你同行

今天的彌撒講道,教宗提到門徒們是漁夫,衪在他們還在工作的時候召叫了他們。

– 我們還記得耶穌在什麼時候,那種情況下召叫了我們?

我們基督徒也一樣,在我們的人生旅途上不斷的向前行走,一種不斷的與主相熟的前行。莫怕,主與爾偕焉。

然而相熟當中要是沒有團體,沒有聖體,沒有教會,沒有天主的子民,沒有聖事是很危險的。它可以變成諾斯底式(註)的相熟,一種只為自己,與天主子民區隔開來的相熟。

因此要注意不要虛擬化教會,虛擬化聖事,虛擬化天主的子民。然而在這疫情爆發的時刻,我們必須以這種方式與主相熟,但是我們必須要走出隧道,而不祗是呆在那兒。

– 要怎麼走出隧道呢? 在疫情流行期間,讓我們從家庭的日常生活中開始。

– 我,是家裏最需要認真練習的。

(註):簡單說,就是以為用個人的智慧就可以獲得拯救的人。

 

Pope Francis says in today’s homily: The disciples were fishermen. Jesus called them while they were at work.

– Do we remember when and under what condition Jesus called us?

We Christians too, in our life’s journey are in this state of walking, of progressing in familiarity with the Lord.

– Be not afraid, the Lord be with you.

But a familiarity without community, a familiarity without Bread, a familiarity without the Church, without the people, without the Sacraments is dangerous. It could become a gnostic (*) familiarity, a familiarity only for myself, detached from the people of God.

Be careful not to virtualize the Church, to virtualize the Sacraments, to virtualize the People of God. It’s true that at this moment we must have this familiarity with the Lord in this way, but we must come out of the tunnel, not stay there.

– How so? Let’s start our familiarity with the Lord in our family and in our daily life during this pandemic.

– I, am the one in most need to practice it seriously.

(*): Simply put, people who think they can be saved with their own intelligence.
