神父講道 – 將臨期第二週 (週一) (2011年12月5日)

恭讀聖路加福音 5: 17-26

有一天,耶穌正在施教,幾個法利塞人和法學士也在座。他們是從加里肋亞和猶太各鄉村及耶路撒冷來的;上主的德能催迫耶治病。看,有人用床抬來一個患癱瘓症的人,設法把他抬進去,放在耶穌跟前。但因人眾多,不得其門而入。遂上了房頂,從瓦中間,把他連那小床繫到中間,正放在耶穌面前。耶穌一見他們的信心,就說:「人啊!你的罪赦了。」經師和法利塞人開始忖度說:「這人是誰?竟說褻瀆話?除了天主一個外,誰能赦罪?」耶穌看透了他們的心思,就向他們說:「你們心裏忖度什麽呢?什麼比較容易?是說:你的罪赦了,或是說:起來行走吧!但爲叫你們知道人子在地上有權赦罪。」——便對癱子說:「我給你說:起來,拿起你的小床,回家去吧!」那人立刻在他們面前站了起來,拿著他躺過的小床,回家去了。眾人十分驚奇,並光榮天主,滿懷恐懼說:「今天我們看見了出奇的事。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 5:17-26

17 On one of those days, as he was teaching, there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was with him to heal. 18 And behold, men were bringing on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and they sought to bring him in and lay him before Jesus; 19 but finding no way to bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the midst before Jesus. 20 And when he saw their faith he said, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, saying, “Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only?” 22 When Jesus perceived their questionings, he answered them, “Why do you question in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk?’ 24 But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins” –he said to the man who was paralyzed– “I say to you, rise, take up your bed and go home.” 25 And immediately he rose before them, and took up that on which he lay, and went home, glorifying God. 26 And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, “We have seen strange things today.”

路5:17-26    (讀經 ── 依35:1-10   詠85)
有一天,耶穌正在施教,幾個法利塞人和法學士也在座,他們是從加里肋亞和猶太各鄉村及耶路撒冷來的;上主的德能催迫祂治病。看,有人用床抬來一個患癱瘓症的人,設法把他抬進去,放在耶穌跟前;但因人眾多,不得其門而入,遂上了房頂,從瓦中間,把他連那小床繫到中間,正放在耶穌面前。耶穌一見他們的信心,就說:「人啊!你的罪赦了。」經師和法利塞人開始忖度說:「這人是誰?竟說褻瀆話!除了天主一個外,誰能赦罪?」耶穌看透了他們的心思,就向他們說:「你們心裡忖度什麼呢?什麼比較容易?是說:你的罪赦了,或是說:起來行走吧!但為叫你們知道人子在地上有權赦罪──便對癱子說:我給你說:起來,拿起你的小床,回家去吧!那人立刻在他們在面前站了起來,拿著他躺過的小床,讚頌天主,回家去了。眾人十分驚奇,並光榮天主,滿懷恐懼說:「今天我們看見了出奇的事。」

默 想

  • 法利塞人和法學士的焦點,一點都沒有放在關心那癱子身上,他們只關心如何整治耶穌,找出耶穌的錯處。他們根本不服氣,完全接受不了耶穌是默西亞,他們甚至妒忌耶穌,眾人都向耶穌簇擁而來。
  • 幫忙癱子的朋友,只在一心一意,盡最大所能,把癱子抬到耶穌面前,他們的目標非常純粹清晰,他們以行動關心癱子。
  • 醫好癱子的,是耶穌,也包括癱子和他朋友們的信德。
  • 及後,他們都戰戰兢兢,滿心驚奇、振奮,經驗著發生在他們身上的出奇的事,並歸光榮予天主。
  • 我們都要持著一顆單純又有信德的心,將自己的「癱」呈奉上主面前,由祂使我們站起來。

主日講道 – 將臨期第二主日 (2011年12月4日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 1:1-8

天主子耶穌基督福音的開始,正如依撒意亞先知書上記載的:「看,我派遣我的使者在祢面前,預備祢的道路。曠野中有呼號者的聲音:你們當預備上主的道路,修直祂的途徑。」
此時,若翰出現在曠野裡施洗,並宣講悔改的洗禮,以赦免罪過。猶太全地和耶路撒冷的群眾都出來,到他那裡,承認自己的罪過,在約但河受他的洗。
若翰穿的是駱駝毛的衣服,腰間束的是皮帶,吃的是蝗蟲與野蜜。他宣告說:「那比我更有力量的,要在我以後來,我連俯身解祂的鞋帶也不配。我以水洗你們,祂卻要以聖神洗你們。」

(2nd Sunday of Advant)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 1:1-8

1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, “Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way; 3 the voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight — ” 4 John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5 And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 6 Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, and had a leather girdle around his waist, and ate locusts and wild honey. 7 And he preached, saying, “After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. 8 I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
