First reading Hebrews 2:14-18

He took to himself descent from Abraham

Since all the children share the same blood and flesh, Christ too shared equally in it, so that by his death he could take away all the power of the devil, who had power over death, and set free all those who had been held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death. For it was not the angels that he took to himself; he took to himself descent from Abraham. It was essential that he should in this way become completely like his brothers so that he could be a compassionate and trustworthy high priest of God’s religion, able to atone for human sins. That is, because he has himself been through temptation he is able to help others who are tempted.

Responsorial Psalm 104(105):1-4,6-9

The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.
Give thanks to the Lord, tell his name,
  make known his deeds among the peoples.
O sing to him, sing his praise;
  tell all his wonderful works!
Be proud of his holy name,
  let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice.
Consider the Lord and his strength;
  constantly seek his face.
O children of Abraham, his servant,
  O sons of the Jacob he chose.
He, the Lord, is our God:
  his judgements prevail in all the earth.
He remembers his covenant for ever,
  his promise for a thousand generations,
the covenant he made with Abraham,
  the oath he swore to Isaac.

Gospel Mark 1:29-39

He cast out devils and cured many who were suffering from disease

On leaving the synagogue, Jesus went with James and John straight to the house of Simon and Andrew. Now Simon’s mother-in-law had gone to bed with fever, and they told him about her straightaway. He went to her, took her by the hand and helped her up. And the fever left her and she began to wait on them.
  That evening, after sunset, they brought to him all who were sick and those who were possessed by devils. The whole town came crowding round the door, and he cured many who were suffering from diseases of one kind or another; he also cast out many devils, but he would not allow them to speak, because they knew who he was.
  In the morning, long before dawn, he got up and left the house, and went off to a lonely place and prayed there. Simon and his companions set out in search of him, and when they found him they said, ‘Everybody is looking for you.’ He answered, ‘Let us go elsewhere, to the neighbouring country towns, so that I can preach there too, because that is why I came.’ And he went all through Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out devils.

Hebrews 2:14-18; Mark 1:29-39

“Make time to pray”
Jesus was a man of action. In today’s Gospel, we see Him busy going to places and helping and serving others. We too are busy people. We have deadlines to meet, work to accomplish, appointments to keep, emails to answer, errands to run, etc. Though He was a man of action, He was also a man of prayer. In the passage, St. Mark wrote, “In the morning, long before dawn, he got up and left the house, and went off to a lonely place and prayed there” This gives us a glimpse of where the source of His inner strength and peace came from, i.e. His interior life with God. Our work, busy schedules and errands do matter. However, what matters most is to find our quiet time to pray because it is from the presence of God that we are renewed and strengthened to live each day with meaning and to do every action with love.

Questions for reflection:
Is prayer important for me? Why?

13 hb Januari 2021 Hari Rabu Minggu Biasa Pertama

Ibrani 2:14-18;
Markus 1:29-39

“Luangkan waktu untuk berdoa”
Yesus adalah seorang yang bertindak. Dalam Injil hari ini, kita melihat Yesus sibuk melawat banyak tempat dan membantu serta melayani orang lain. Kita juga adalah orang yang sibuk. Kita mempunyai tarikh akhir yang harus dipenuhi, kerja yang perlu disiapkan, temujanji yang harus dipenuhi, e-mail yang perlu dijawab, tugas-tugas yang perlu dijalankan dan sebagainya. Walaupun Yesus seorang yang sentiasa bertindak, Dia juga adalah seorang yang tidak pernah lupa untuk berdoa. Dalam petikan St. Markus menulis, “Pagi-pagi benar, waktu hari masih gelap, Ia bangun dan pergi ke luar. Ia pergi ke tempat yang sunyi dan berdoa di sana.” Ini memberikan gambaran akan sumber kekuatan batin dan damai-Nya, iaitu seluruh hidup batin-Nya adalah bersama Allah.

Kerja, jadual yang sibuk dan kerja-kerja kita adalah penting. Namun, apa yang penting adalah untuk kita mencari waktu yang tenang untuk berdoa kerana melalui hadirat Tuhan hidup kita akan diperbaharui dan dikuatkan setiap hari dengan penuh makna dan melakukan setiap perbuatan dengan cintakasih.

Soalan renungan:
Adakah doa penting bagi saya? Mengapa?

Hebrew 2:14-18; Mark 1:29-39

“Meri awak diri dikena besambiang.”
Jesus meh orang ti ngereja pengawa. Ba Injil saritu, kitai meda Iya kiruh bejalai ngagai mayuh endur lalu meri tulong sereta mela orang. Kitai mega orang ti mayuh utai dikiruh. Kitai bisi utai ti patut ditembuka, kereja pejabat ti mayuh, bejalai ari endur siti ngagai endur siti. Taja Iya orang ti ngereja pengawa, Jesus mega orang ti meruan besembiang. Ba genteran ti ditulis St. Mark, “Pagi hari siti, sebedau rerak tawas, Jesus angkat, lalu bejalai ngagai siti endur ti sunyi, lalu besampi.” Kitai ulih merati ka alai Iya bulih pengering dalam sereta pun penatai pemaik, pengidup dalam Allah Taala.

Pengawa ti mai kitai kiruh sigi beguna. Tang pengawa ka amat beguna nya meh lebuh kitai tetemu ka awak besembiang laban nya meh endur Allah Taala pegari lalu meri kitai pengering sereta ngemaru kitai awak diau ninting hari ngereja genap iti pengawa enggau pengerindu.

Bisi aku bejadika pengawa besembiang nya utai ti beguna? Lapa deh?



” 抽空时间祈祷”
耶稣是一位行动的人。 在今天的福音中,我们看到祂忙着去各个地方,帮助和服务他人。我们也很忙。 我们有截止日期完成工作,保留约会,发送电子邮件给答案和办事等等。尽管祂是一位行动的人,祂也是一个祈祷的人。 在福音的章节中,圣马尔谷写道:“清晨,天还很黑,耶稣起床离开了房子,去了一个荒野的地方,在那里祈祷”,这使我们明白祂内在的力量与平安是来自於祂与天主的内心生命。


祈祷对我重要吗? 为什么?
