SSJE: Week 5 Day 6: Abiding in Love

“Abide in me as I abide in you.” – John 15:4

So, there’s a little paradox here: On the one hand, we can’t be separated from the love of God in Christ, but on the other hand we can be more intentional about abiding in this love as a conscious choice. 428 more words

靈修(24)—默觀式祈禱

上兩次介紹了聖經默想,但天主教的祈禱當然還有別的豐富傳統。

包括日課、玫瑰經、聖言誦讀、朝拜聖體、歸心祈禱、基督徒默禱、耶穌禱文等。以上這種種,和聖經默想最大的分別是,以上種種祈禱,都不鼓勵思考,而是將自己的心專注於天主身上,留意天主的同在。

但是,大家都應知道,要我們不思考,是差不多沒有可能的事,所以,傳統的教導是教我們以一句短句取代思考,這種方式,可追溯至教父若望伽先以至奧力振的時代。

例如基督徒默禱,是由若望.邁恩神父創立,主張以一句MARANATHA作為祈禱的短句。這句說話是阿拉美語,是耶穌時代的語言,意思是「吾主,來罷」(參格前16:22)

這種祈禱,開始時以一篇天主經開始,然後專注地唸MARANATHA二十分鐘,然後可以用一篇光榮經結束。

可能有人會有疑問,為何這樣都可算是祈禱?為默禱的人來說,他們認為這才算是祈禱,因為他們承認自己不懂如何祈禱,「而聖神卻親自以無可言喻的歎息,代我們轉求」。(羅8:26)

結果是,我們一定要學懂如何讓聖神幫助我們!
