SUNDAY REFLECTIONS

​What Do You Seek

​ Second Sunday in Ordinary Time ( 17 January 2021 )

[ 1 Samuel 3:3-10.19 , Ps 39:2.4.7-10 , 1 Corinthians 6:13-15.17-20 , John 1:35-42 ]

“What do you seek?” it is a question that Jesus invites all of us to ponder upon regarding the longings and desires of our hearts. In these longings lies the energy that nourishes the search for the mystery and finger of God present in our lives.   The reply of the two disciples: “Where do you stay?” expresses their interest in the places where the Lord was present and at work in their lives.  Jesus’s reply of “Come and see” is an expression of how God wants us to be in a personal and experiential relationship with Him. To know the Lord is simply this.  Only by spending time with Jesus can we understand the deepest yearnings of our hearts, wanting what He wants of us. Through our pondering of the Gospel, we are invited to move beyond knowing about Jesus, beyond adoration, beyond thanksgiving or requesting, to just being in His presence and love knowing that He alone can take care of everything. 

追寻什么?

「你們找什麼?」,耶稣此询问不只向经文中兩個門徒提出,其实也包括所有世人。兩個門徒以「師傅!你住在那裡?」回应,暗示着两人好奇天主的存在且向往天主能成为他们生活不可或缺的一部分,而正因如此,耶稣以「你們來看看罷!」公然欢迎两人与天主建立关系。虔诚向往侍奉天主,其实就恰恰如此,以时间精力修行遵从祂旨意,加深对天父的了解,充分体验感恩祂的博爱如何克服一切。
