神父講道 – 常年期第四週 (週三) (2012年2月1日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 6:1-6

耶穌來到自己的家鄉,門徒也跟了他來。到了安息日,他便開始在會堂裡教訓人:眾人聽了,就驚訝說:「他這一切是從那裡來的呢?所賜給他的是什麼樣的智慧?怎麼藉他的手行出這樣的奇能?這人不就是那個木匠嗎?他不是瑪利亞的兒子,雅各伯、若瑟、猶達、西滿的兄弟嗎?他的姊妹不是也都在我們這裡嗎?」他們便對他起了反感。耶穌對他們說:「先知除了在自己的本鄉、本族和本家外,是沒有不受尊敬的。」耶穌在那裡不能行什麼奇能,只給少數的幾個病人覆手,治好了他們。他因他們的無信心而感到詫異,遂週遊四周各村施教去了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 6:1-6

1 He went away from there and came to his own country; and his disciples followed him. 2 And on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue; and many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get all this? What is the wisdom given to him? What mighty works are wrought by his hands! 3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. 4 And Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.” 5 And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands upon a few sick people and healed them. 6 And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went about among the villages teaching.

谷6:1-6    (讀經 ── 撒下24:2, 9-17   詠32)
耶穌來到自己的家鄉,門徒也跟了他來。到了安息日,他便開始在會堂裡教訓人:眾人聽了,就驚訝說:「他這一切是從那裡來的呢?所賜給他的是什麼樣的智慧?怎麼藉他的手行出這樣的奇能?這人不就是那個木匠嗎?他不是瑪利亞的兒子,雅各伯、若瑟、猶達、西滿的兄弟嗎?他的姊妹不是也都在我們這裡嗎?」他們便對他起了反感。耶穌對他們說:「先知除了在自己的本鄉、本族和本家外,是沒有不受尊敬的。」耶穌在那裡不能行什麼奇能,只給少數的幾個病人覆手,治好了他們。他因他們的無信心而感到詫異,遂週遊四周各村施教去了。

默 想

  • 與耶穌同鄉的人,要相信甚至認出耶穌是默西亞,更需要一種超越的眼光,以另一個更新的角度看耶穌。
  • 耶穌在他們中間行不到什麼奇蹟,包括治病,因為他們不願向他投以信心。原來,治癒與被治癒是一個互動的關係,上主的恩澤才得以顯現及流動。
  • 想像一下,若你是耶穌當時的人,與他同鄉,怎樣才有此超越的眼光?
  • 在上主內,我們不時需要一副另類的「眼鏡」,讓我們真的看得真、看得透、看得清明,也從執著中釋放出來。

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 5:21-43

耶穌乘船渡回對岸,有大夥群眾聚集在他周圍;他遂留在海濱。那時,來了一個會堂長,名叫雅依洛,一見耶穌,就跪伏在他腳前,懇切求他說:「我的小女兒快要死了,請你來,給她覆手,叫她得救回生。」耶穌就同他去了。有一大群人跟隨著他,擁擠著他。那時,有一個婦人,患血漏已有十二年。她在許多醫生手裏,受了許多痛苦,花盡了自己所有的一切,不但沒有見效,反而病勢更加重了。她聽了有關耶穌的傳說,便來到人群中,從後邊摸了耶穌的衣裳,因為她心裏想:「我只要一摸他的衣裳,必然會好的。」她的血源立刻涸竭了,並且覺得身上的疾病也好了。耶穌立時覺得有一種能力從自己身上出去,就在人群中回過頭來說:「誰摸了我的衣裳?」他的門徒向他說:「你看!群眾四面擁擠著你,你還問:誰摸了我?」耶穌四周觀望,要看作這事的婦人。那婦人明知在自己身上所成的事,就戰戰兢兢地前來,跪伏在耶穌前,把實情完全告訴了他。耶穌便向他說:「女兒,你的信德救了你,平安去吧!你的疾病必得痊愈。」他還說話的時候,有人從會堂長家裏來,說:「你的女兒死了,你還來煩勞師傅做什麼?」耶穌聽見所說的話,就給會堂長說:「不要怕,只管信。」除伯多祿、雅各伯和雅各伯的弟弟若望外,他沒有讓任何人跟他去。他們到了會堂長的家裏,耶穌看見群眾非常喧噪:有的哭泣,有的哀號,便進去,給他們說:「你們為什麼喧噪哭泣呢?小女孩並沒有死,只是睡著了!」他們都譏笑他。他卻把眾人趕出去,帶著小女孩的父親和母親,以及同他在一起的人,進了小女孩所在的地方。他拿起小女孩的手,對她說:「塔里塔,古木!」意思是:「女孩子,我命你起來!」那女孩子就立刻起來行走,原來她已十二歲了;他們都驚訝得目瞪口呆。耶穌卻嚴厲命令他們,不要叫任何人知道這事;又吩咐給女孩子吃的。

(Memorial of Saint John Bosco, Priest)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 5:21-43

21 And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him; and he was beside the sea. 22 Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Ja’irus by name; and seeing him, he fell at his feet, 23 and besought him, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live.” 24 And he went with him. And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. 25 And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. 27 She had heard the reports about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 28 For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I shall be made well.”29 And immediately the hemorrhage ceased; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30 And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone forth from him, immediately turned about in the crowd, and said, “Who touched my garments?” 31 And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, `Who touched me?'” 32 And he looked around to see who had done it. 33 But the woman, knowing what had been done to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”
35 While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” 36 But ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” 37 And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 38 When they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, he saw a tumult, and people weeping and wailing loudly. 39 And when he had entered, he said to them, “Why do you make a tumult and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping.” 40 And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside, and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41 Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Tal’itha cu’mi”; which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.”42 And immediately the girl got up and walked (she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. 43 And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.

谷5:21-43    (讀經 ── 撒下18:9-10, 14, 24-25, 30-19:3   詠86)
耶穌乘船渡回對岸,有大夥群眾聚集在他周圍;他遂留在海濱。那時,來了一個會堂長,名叫雅依洛,一見耶穌,就跪伏在他腳前,懇切求他說:「我的小女兒快要死了,請你來,給她覆手,叫她得救回生。」耶穌就同他去了。有一大群人跟隨著他,擁擠著他。那時,有一個婦人,患血漏已有十二年。她在許多醫生手裡,受了許多痛苦,化盡了自己所有的一切,不但沒有見效,反而病勢更加重了。她聽了有關耶穌的傳說,便來到人群中,從後邊摸了耶穌的衣裳,因為她心裡想:「我只要一摸他的衣裳,必然會好的。」她的血源立刻涸竭了,並且覺得身上的疾病也好了。耶穌立時覺得有一種能力從自己身上出去,就在人群中回過頭來說:「誰摸了我的衣裳?」他的門徒向他說:「你看!群眾四面擁擠著你,你還問:誰摸了我?」耶穌四周觀望,要看作這事的婦人。那婦人明知在自己身上所成的事,就戰戰兢兢地前來,跪伏在耶穌前,把實情完全告訴了他。耶穌便向他說:「女兒,你的信德救了你,平安去吧!你的疾病必得痊癒。」他還說話的時候,有人從會堂長家裡來,說:「你的女兒死了,你還來煩勞師傅做什麼?」耶穌聽見所說的話,就給會堂長說:「不要怕,只管信。」除伯多祿、雅各伯和雅各伯的弟弟若望外,他沒有讓任何人跟他去。他
們到了會堂長的家裡,耶穌看見群眾非常喧噪:有的哭泣,有的哀號,便進去,給他們說:「你們為什麼喧噪哭泣呢?小女孩並沒有死,只是睡著了!」他們都譏笑他。他卻把眾人趕出去,帶著小女孩的父親和母親,以及同他在一起的人,進了小女孩所在的地方。他拿起小女孩的手,對她說:「塔里塔,古木!」意思是:「女孩子,我命你起來!」那女孩子就立刻起來行走,原來她已十二歲了;他們都驚訝得目瞪口呆。耶穌卻嚴厲命令他們,不要叫任何人知道這事;又吩咐給女孩子吃的。

默 想

  • 對會堂長的女兒和患了十二年血漏的女人而言,耶穌不單止起死回生、使病得癒,最根本的,是耶穌在她們身上成就了大事,於她們有恩情,有憐憫,足夠她們整個人獲得改變,不只在身體上。
  • 被拯救的經驗是怎麼的一回事?你有此體會嗎?帶來的,很可能是最深刻的感謝感恩,甚至覺得自己不堪當。
  • 從心底滲出來的感恩,可以改變一個人,讓人變得更柔軟、更包容、更慷慨,更想以愛還愛。
  • 感恩之心是知恩圖報的產物。

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 5:1-20

耶穌和他的門徒來到了海的對岸革辣撒人的地方。耶穌一下船,即刻有一個附邪魔的人,從墳墓裏出來,迎著他走來。原來那人居住在墳墓裏,再沒有人能捆住他,就是用鎖鏈也不能,因為人屢次用腳鐐和鎖鏈將他捆縛,他卻將鎖鏈掙斷,將腳鐐弄碎,沒有人能制服他。他晝夜在墳墓裏或山陵中喊叫,用石頭擊傷自己。他從遠處望見了耶穌,就跑來,跪在他前,大聲喊說:「至高天主之子耶穌,我與你有什麼相干?我因著天主誓求你,不要苦害我!」因為耶穌曾向他說:「邪魔,從這人身上出去!」耶穌問他說:「你名叫什麼?」他回答說:「我名叫『軍旅』,因為我們眾多。」他再三懇求耶穌,不要驅逐他們離開此地。那時,在那邊山坡上,有一大群豬正在牧放。他們懇求耶穌說:「請打發我們到那豬群,好讓我們進入牠們內。」耶穌准許了他們;邪魔就出來,進入了豬內。那群豬約有二千,便從山崖上直衝到海裏,在海裏淹死了。放豬的人就逃走,到城裏和鄉間傳報開了;人都出來看是發生了什麼事。他們來到耶穌跟前,看見那個附魔的人,即為「軍旅」所附的人,坐在那裏,穿著衣服,神志清醒,就害怕起來。看見的人就把附魔的人所遇到的事,和那豬群的事,都給他們述說了。他們便請求耶穌離開他們的境界。當耶穌上船時,那曾附過魔的人,懇求耶穌讓他同耶穌在一起。耶穌沒有允許他,但對他說:「你回家,到你的親屬那裏,給他們傳述上主為你作了何等大事,怎樣憐憫了你。」那人就走了,在十城區開始傳揚耶穌為他所作的何等大事,眾人都驚奇不已。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 5:1-20

1 They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of Gerasenes. 2 And when he had come out of the boat, there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 who lived among the tombs; and no one could bind him any more, even with a chain; 4 for he had often been bound with fetters and chains, but the chains he wrenched apart, and the fetters he broke in pieces; and no one had the strength to subdue him. 5 Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always crying out, and bruising himself with stones. 6 And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped him; 7 and crying out with a loud voice, he said, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me.” 8 For he had said to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!” 9 And Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” He replied, “My name is Legion; for we are many.” 10 And he begged him eagerly not to send them out of the country. 11 Now a great herd of swine was feeding there on the hillside; 12 and they begged him, “Send us to the swine, let us enter them.” 13 So he gave them leave. And the unclean spirits came out, and entered the swine; and the herd, numbering about two thousand, rushed down the steep bank into the sea, and were drowned in the sea. 14 The herdsmen fled, and told it in the city and in the country. And people came to see what it was that had happened. 15 And they came to Jesus, and saw the demoniac sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, the man who had the legion; and they were afraid. 16 And those who had seen it told what had happened to the demoniac and to the swine. 17 And they began to beg Jesus to depart from their neighborhood. 18 And as he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him. 19 But he refused, and said to him, “Go home to your friends, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” 20 And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decap’olis how much Jesus had done for him; and all men marveled.

谷5:1-20    (讀經 ── 撒下15:13-14, 30;16:5-13   詠3)
耶穌和他的門徒來到了海的對岸革辣撒人的地方。耶穌一下船,即刻有一個附邪魔的人,從墳墓裡出來,迎著他走來。原來那人居住在墳墓裡,再沒有人能捆住他,就是用鎖鏈也不能,因為人屢次用腳鐐和鎖鏈將他捆縛,他卻將鎖鏈掙斷,將腳鐐弄碎,沒有人能制服他。他晝夜在墳墓裡或山陵中喊叫,用石頭擊傷自已。他從遠處望見了耶穌,就跑來,跪在他前,大聲喊說:「至高天主之子耶穌,我與你有什麼相干?我因著天主誓求你,不要苦害我!」因為耶穌曾向他說:「邪魔,從這人身上出去!」耶穌問他說:「你名叫什麼?」他回答說:「我名叫『軍旅』,因為我們眾多。」他再三懇求耶穌,不要驅逐他們離開此地。那時,在那邊山坡上,有一大群豬正在牧放。他們懇求耶穌說:「請打發我們到那豬群,好讓我們進入牠們內。」耶穌准許了他們;邪魔就出來,進入了豬內。那群豬約有二千,便從山崖上直衝到海裡,在海裡淹死了。放豬的人就逃走,到城裡和鄉間傳報開了;人都出來看是發生了什麼事。他們來到耶穌跟前,看見那個附魔的人,即為「軍旅」所附的人,坐在那裡,穿著衣服,神志清醒,就害怕起來。看見的人就把附魔的人所遇到的事,和那豬群的事,都給他們述說了。他們便請求耶穌離開他們的境界。當耶穌上船時,那曾附

默 想

  • 從耶穌行神蹟事件上,我們領略到什麼訊息?今天,神蹟還存在嗎?我們可怎看神蹟?
  • 耶穌在他那時代行神蹟,為彰顯上主的大能,是要告訴世人,病者得癒、被附魔的得釋放,顯示天主的國真到我們中間了。
  • 耶穌不是叫我們追求神蹟,如變魔術般,由冇變有,在看表演。
  • 耶穌藉著醫治或神蹟,最最想我們領略上主的慈愛與臨在,上主關心我們每一個。
  • 今天,「神蹟」發生在我們周遭,例如見到一個性情轉好了、心變得更寬的人,更了解自己,接納自己的人,這已經是最實在的「神蹟」了。
  • 所以,當你遇到耶穌,若從未經歷「神蹟」──你自己的改變或更新,是時候問一問:自己的信仰誕生了嗎?有成長嗎?

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 5,1-12

耶穌一見群眾,就上了山,坐下;他的門徒上他跟前來,
他遂開口教訓他們說:
「神貧的人是有福的,因為天國是他們的。
哀慟的人是有福的,因為他們要受安慰。
溫良的人是有福的,因為他們要承受土地。
飢渴慕義的人是有福的,因為他們要得飽飫。
憐憫人的人是有福的,因為他們要受憐憫。
心裏潔淨的人是有福的,因為他們要看見天主。
締造和平的人是有福的,因為他們要稱為天主的子女。
為義而受迫害的人是有福的,因為天國是他們的。
幾時人為了我而辱罵迫害你們,捏造一切壞話毀謗你們,你們是有福的。
你們歡喜踴躍罷!因為你們在天上的賞報是豐富的, 因為在你們以前的先知,人也曾這樣迫害過他們。」

(1st Sunday after Chinese New Year)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mt 5,1-12

1* When he saw the crowds,* he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. 2He began to teach them, saying:
The Beatitudes*
3“Blessed are the poor in spirit,* for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.a
4* Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
5* Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
6 Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,* for they will be satisfied.
7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.d
8* Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,* for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you [falsely] because of me. 12* Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.h Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
