神父講道 – 聖若翰 ‧ 維雅納 (紀念) (週三) (2010年8月4日)

聖若翰 ‧ 維雅納 (紀念)
恭讀聖瑪竇福音 15:21-28
那時候,耶穌離開革乃撒勒,就退往提洛和漆冬一帶去了。看,有一個客納罕婦人,從那地方出來喊說:「主,達味之子,可憐我吧!我的女兒被魔鬼糾纏得好苦啊!」耶穌卻一句話也不回答她。他的門徒就上前求他說:「打發她走吧!因為她在我們後面不停喊叫。」耶穌回答說:「我被派遣,只是為了以色列家迷失的羊。」那婦人卻前來叩拜他說:「主,援助我吧!」耶穌回答說:「拿兒女的餅扔給小狗,是不對的。」但她說:「是啊!主,可是小狗也吃主人桌子上掉下來的碎屑。」耶穌回答她說:「啊!婦人,你的信德真大,就如你所願望的,給你成就吧!」從那時刻起,她的女兒就痊愈了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 15:21-28

21 And Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and cried, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely possessed by a demon.” 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, “Send her away, for she is crying after us.” 24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” 25 But she came and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, help me.” 26 And he answered, “It is not fair to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 27 She said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.” 28 Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly.

瑪15:21-28 (其他經文──耶31:1-7    詠:耶31:10-13)
耶穌離開革乃撒勒,就退往提洛和漆冬一帶去了。看,有一個客納罕婦人,從那地方出來喊說:「主,達味之子,可憐我吧!我的女兒被魔鬼糾纏得好苦啊!」耶穌卻一句話也不回答她。他的門徒就上前求他說:「打發她走吧!因為她在我們後面不停喊叫。」耶穌回答說:「我被派遣,只是為了以色列家迷失的羊。」那婦人卻前來叩拜他說:「主,援助我吧!」耶穌回答說:「拿兒女的餅扔給小狗,是不對的。」但她說:「是啊!主,可是小狗也吃主人桌子上掉下來的碎屑。」耶穌回答她說:「啊!婦人,你的信德真大,就如你所願望的,給你成就吧!」從那時刻起,她的女兒就痊愈了。

默 想

  • 當然,除了飢渴空虛外,我們也需要痊癒。實在,只要認真去想去看,我們的人生真是千瘡百孔。認真想的真會悲從中來。
  • 所以我們不想認真!我們去玩、去hea、去旅行、去唱K、去大吃大喝、上網……都只不過是逃避而已。我們已經放棄自己。
  • 客納罕婦人有何不同?很簡單,她就是死纏爛打,永不放棄而已。
  • 我也曾被「惡魔」纏上了,也只不過是死纏爛打,永不放棄而已。
