神父講道 – 常年期第四週 (週一) (2019年2月4日)

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,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。

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

Jesus and his disciples came to the other side of the sea, to the territory of the Gerasenes. When he got out of the boat, at once a man from the tombs who had an unclean spirit met him. The man had been dwelling among the tombs, and no one could restrain him any longer, even with a chain. In fact, he had frequently been bound with shackles and chains, but the chains had been pulled apart by him and the shackles smashed, and no one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and on the hillsides he was always crying out and bruising himself with stones. Catching sight of Jesus from a distance, he ran up and prostrated himself before him, crying out in a loud voice, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me!” (He had been saying to him, “Unclean spirit, come out of the man!”) He asked him, “What is your name?”
He replied, “Legion is my name. There are many of us.” And he pleaded earnestly with him not to drive them away from that territory.
Now a large herd of swine was feeding there on the hillside. And they pleaded with him, “Send us into the swine. Let us enter them.” And he let them, and the unclean spirits came out and entered the swine. The herd of about two thousand rushed down a steep bank into the sea, where they were drowned. The swineherds ran away and reported the incident in the town and throughout the countryside. And people came out to see what had happened. As they approached Jesus, they caught sight of the man who had been possessed by Legion, sitting there clothed and in his right mind. And they were seized with fear. Those who witnessed the incident explained to them what had happened to the possessed man and to the swine. Then they began to beg him to leave their district. As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed pleaded to remain with him. But Jesus would not permit him but told him instead, “Go home to your family and announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for you.” Then the man went off and began to proclaim in the Decapolis what Jesus had done for him; and all were amazed.
