聖亞加大 (貞女、殉道) (紀念)

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,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。

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.

Message of Our Lady to Mirjana on February 2, 2013
“Dear children! Love is bringing me to you – the love which I desire to teach you also – real love; the love which my Son showed you when He died on the Cross out of love for you; the love which is always ready to forgive and to ask for forgiveness. How great is your love? My Motherly heart is sorrowful as it searches for love in your hearts. You are not ready to submit your will to God’s will out of love. You cannot help me to have those who have not come to know God’s love to come to know it, because you do not have real love. Consecrate your hearts to me and I will lead you. I will teach you to forgive, to love your enemies and to live according to my Son. Do not be afraid for yourselves. In afflictions my Son does not forget those who love. I will be beside you. I will implore the Heavenly Father for the light of eternal truth and love to illuminate you. Pray for your shepherds so that through your fasting and prayer they can lead you in love. Thank you. ”
親愛的孩子們:
愛促使我和你們在一起,也是我渴望教導你們的 —— 真愛;這就是我的聖子為了愛你們而死在十字架上所顯示的真愛;愛是恆常願意寬恕別人及要求被寬恕。
你們的愛有多大?當我在你們的心中尋找這愛時,我的聖心很難過,因為你們尚未真心願意承行天主的旨意。你們不能幫助我使那些尚未認識主大愛的人去認識祂,因為你們心中沒有真愛。
奉獻你們的心給我罷!讓我來帶領你們,教導你們如何寬恕,愛你們的仇人,活出天主。
你們不要害怕,我的聖子是不會忘記那些在痛苦中仍然懂得去愛的人。而我也會在你們身邊,並在天父面前求祂賜給你們真光,好能明白真理和真愛。
為你們的牧者祈禱,藉著你們的守齋及祈禱,讓他們帶領你們走上愛德的道路。多謝你們。

谷5:21-43   (讀經 ── 希12:1-4   詠22)
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

  • 耶穌兩次說了「信」。而今年是信德年……。
  • 今時今日,仍然有不少人是靠著信而過活的,因為他們很窮,什麼也沒有。例如仁愛會的修女。
  • 但是,我們這些富裕地區,卻很難有信德,因為我們靠自己也可解決大部分問題,直到真的有絕症的時候……。
  • 可惜,我們這種想法卻是錯用了信德,以為信德是一種救命靈丹。因為信德不是你信,求什麼就必得到,雖然聖經曾這樣提過。(路11:9-13)
  • 真正信德其實是關乎接受。天主給我們什麼都可以嗎?我們有這樣的信德嗎?

谷5:1-20   (讀經 ── 希11:32-40   詠31)
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,到你的親屬那裡,對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。

 

默 想

  • 其實,附魔是怎麼一回事?是受到邪魔力量的控制,不是完全自由?
  • 若這是附魔的定義,則我們或多或少都有附魔。因為撒殫今天聰明多了,牠用很多的包裝,令我們認不出牠來,但牠仍然可以控制我們。
  • 例如smartphone,有了這種手機的人,自己可以控制的時間少了很多,每個人都忙個不了。連在彌撒中,也有人在用手指「劃來劃去」的。它霸佔了天主的位置。
  • 其實,只要我們的心不在天主那裡,撒殫永遠有機會乘虛而入。
