神父講道 – 將臨期第一週 (週三) (2010年12月1日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 15: 29-37
耶穌離開那裏,來到加黎利海邊。他上了山,就在那裏坐下。許多群衆前來,還帶來了瘸子、殘廢、瞎子、啞巴和許多其他病人,放在他跟前。耶穌便治好了他們。群衆看見啞巴說話,殘廢的康復,瘸子行走,瞎子重見,都大爲驚奇,稱頌以色列的天主。
耶穌把自己的門徒叫來,對他們說:「我可憐這些群衆,他們留在我身邊已經三天了,也沒有甚麽吃,我不願意叫他們空著肚子回去,恐怕他們會昏倒在路上。」門徒說:「在荒野裏,我們從哪里得到這麽多的餅,叫這許多群衆吃飽呢?」耶穌對他們說:「你們有多少餅?」他們說:「七個餅和幾條小魚。」耶穌就吩咐衆人就地坐下。他拿起七個餅和幾條魚,祝謝了,掰開餅,遞給門徒。門徒再分給群衆。每個人都吃到並且吃飽了,剩下來的碎塊裝滿了七個筐子。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 15:29-37

29 And Jesus went on from there and passed along the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the mountain, and sat down there. 30 And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, 31 so that the throng wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel. 32 Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion on the crowd, because they have been with me now three days, and have nothing to eat; and I am unwilling to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way.” 33 And the disciples said to him, “Where are we to get bread enough in the desert to feed so great a crowd?” 34 And Jesus said to them, “How many loaves have you?” They said, “Seven, and a few small fish.” 35 And commanding the crowd to sit down on the ground, 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37 And they all ate and were satisfied; and they took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces left over.

瑪15:29-37 (其他經文──依25:6-10   詠23)
耶穌來到加里肋亞海岸,上了山,坐在那裡。有許多群眾帶著瘸子、殘廢、瞎子、啞吧,和許多其他的病人來到耶穌跟前,把他們放在他的足前,他便治好了他們;致使群眾見到啞吧說話,殘廢康復,瘸子行走,瞎子看見,都大為驚奇,頌揚以色列的天主。耶穌將自己的門徒召來說:「我很憐憫這群眾,因為他們同我在一起已經三天,也沒有什麼可吃的;我不願遣散他們空著肚子回去,怕他們在路上暈倒。」門徒對他說:「在荒野裡我們從那裡得這麼多的餅,使這麼多的群眾吃飽呢?」耶穌對他們說:「你們有多少餅?」他們說:「七個,還有幾條魚。」耶穌就吩咐群眾坐在地上,拿起那七個餅和魚來,祝謝了,擘開,遞給門徒;門徒再分給群眾。眾人都吃了,也都飽了,把剩下的碎塊收集了滿滿七籃子。

默 想

  • 耶穌實現了依撒意亞先知所言:使瘸子行走,使瞎子看見,使啞吧說話。這一切,都是使看似不可能的,成為可能,讓群眾經驗上主的大能,這是耶穌要傳揚的喜訊。
  • 將臨期是預備耶穌的臨在。經文中,耶穌臨在群眾中,臨在於醫治他們中,荒野中群眾的肚腹中,耶穌的關顧,是全人、全靈的。
  • 耶穌在荒野中,拿起餅和魚,祝謝、擘開,並遞給門徒,由門徒分給眾人,也象徵耶穌也「臨在」餅魚中,把自己「分派」給眾人。
  • 明顯地,這是聖體聖事的預象,耶穌臨在我們的生活、生命中,我們又是否能在生命中,認出祂來?
