神父講道 – 常年期第十四週 (週一) (2010年7月5日)

聖安道.沙嘉理司鐸
恭讀聖瑪竇福音 9:18-26
耶穌正在說話的時候,有一位首長前來跪拜他說:「我的女兒剛才死了,可是請你來,把你的手放在她的身上,她必會活。」耶穌起來跟他去了,他的門徒也跟了去。看,有一個患血漏十二年的女人,從後面走近,摸了他的衣服繸頭,因為她心裏想:「只要我一摸他的衣服,我就會好了。」耶穌轉過身來,看著她說:「女兒,放心吧!你的信德救了你。」從那時起,那女人就好了。耶穌來到首長家裏,看見吹笛的和亂哄哄的群眾,就說:「你們走開吧!女孩子沒有死,只是睡著了。」他們都譏笑他。把群眾趕出去以後,耶穌就進去,拿起女孩子的手,小女孩就起來了。這消息傳遍了那整個地區。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 9:18-26

18 While he was thus speaking to them, behold, a ruler came in and knelt before him, saying, “My daughter has just died; but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live.” 19 And Jesus rose and followed him, with his disciples. 20 And behold, a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment; 21 for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I shall be made well.” 22 Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well. 23 And when Jesus came to the ruler’s house, and saw the flute players, and the crowd making a tumult, 24 he said, “Depart; for the girl is not dead but sleeping.” And they laughed at him. 25 But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose. 26 And the report of this went through all that district.

瑪9:18-26 (其他經文──歐2:16-18, 21-22    詠145)
耶穌正在說話的時候,有一位首長前來跪拜他說:「我的女兒剛才死了,可是請你來,把你的手放在她的身上,她必會活。」耶穌起來跟他去了,他的門徒也跟了去。看,有一個患血漏十二年的女人,從後面走近,摸了他的衣服繸頭,因為她心裡想:「只要我一摸他的衣服,我就會好了。」耶穌轉過身來,看著她說:「女兒,放心吧!你的信德救了你。」從那時起,那女人就好了。耶穌來到首長家裡,看見吹笛的和亂哄哄的群眾,就說:「你們走開吧!女孩子沒有死,只是睡著了。」他們都譏笑他。把群眾趕出去以後,耶穌就進去,拿起女孩子的手,小女孩就起來了。這消息傳遍了那整個地區。

默 想

  • 當時很多人,包括首長與患血漏的女人,知道耶穌此人不簡單,遂向他求救,他們對耶穌都似乎深信不疑。
  • 耶穌行神蹟,治癒人的病,那是耶穌當時救恩的呈現方式。
  • 今天,神蹟、求病得治癒,似乎不應成為我們信仰上的追求,這些可謂次等的信仰效果。
  • 我們的生命是屬於誰的呢?耶穌曾說:「復活在我,生命也在我。」我們要追求的,是與祂的親密關係,多於神蹟的嚮往,對不?這樣看,首長的女兒和患了十二年血漏的女人,相信她們從此將降服於上主,她們的生命都是基督救來的。
