神父講道 – 常年期第二十二週 (週四) (2010年9月2日)

恭讀聖路加福音 5:1-11
那時候,耶穌站在革乃撒勒湖邊,群眾擁到他前要聽天主的道理。他看見兩隻船在湖邊停著,漁夫下了船正在洗網。他上了其中一隻屬於西滿的船,請他把船稍微划開,離開陸地;耶穌就坐下,從船上教訓群眾。一講完了,就對西滿說:「划到深處去,撒你們的網捕魚吧!」西滿回答說:「老師,我們已整夜勞苦,毫無所獲;但我要遵照你的話撒網。」他們照樣辦了,網了許多魚,網險些破裂了。他們遂招呼別隻船上的同伴來協助他們。他們來到,裝滿了兩隻船,以致船也幾乎下沉。西滿伯多祿一見這事,就跪伏在耶穌膝前說:「主,請你離開我!因為我是個罪人。」西滿和同他一起的人,因了他們所捕的魚,都驚駭起來;他的夥伴,即載伯德的兒子雅各伯和若望,也一樣驚駭。耶穌對西滿說:「不要害怕!從今以後,你要做捕人的漁夫。」他們把船划到岸邊,就捨棄一切,跟隨了他。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 5:1-11

1 While the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennes’aret. 2 And he saw two boats by the lake; but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. 3 Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat. 4 And when he had ceased speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” 5 And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.” 6 And when they had done this, they enclosed a great shoal of fish; and as their nets were breaking, 7 they beckoned to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.” 9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the catch of fish which they had taken; 10 and so also were James and John, sons of Zeb’edee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be catching men.” 11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.

路6:1-5 (其他經文──格前4:6-15    詠145)
一個安息日,耶穌經過麥田時,他的門徒掐了麥穗,用手搓著吃。有幾個法利塞人說:「為什麼你們做安息日不准做的呢?」耶穌回答說:「你們沒有讀過:達味和同他在一起的人,在饑餓時所做的嗎?他怎樣進了天主的殿:拿起供餅來吃了:又給了同他在一起的人吃。這供餅原不准他人吃,而只准司祭吃。」耶穌又向他們說:「人子是安息日的主。」

默 想

  • 一針見血,耶穌道出梅瑟法律的美麗精神,「人子是安息日的主」。
  • 人子不單是安息日的主,上主更是我們生命的主。
  • 這道理我們人人上慕道班至領洗時,早已知道,但往往未在生活中生命中呈現出來。
  • 如果我們真能以「上主是我們生命的主」的信念和態度去生活,相信我們的生命不應如此這般吧。應該更是不得了的生命吧!
  • 今天,我們都容易變得「法利塞人化」,什麼可做什麼不可做?由感恩祭到生活規律,例如怎樣領聖體才有效?參與感恩祭最遲可於何時進入,所領的聖體才有效?又或是心底裡認為:每主日參與感恩聖祭,等於完成了教友的本份;又或天天望彌撒,領聖體,多神聖?!(我絕非認為參與感恩祭不神聖!)諸如此類,上主究竟喜悅我們作一個怎樣的人?
