神父講道 – 主顯節後 (週一) (2011年1月3日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 4:12-17,23-25
耶穌聽到若翰被監禁以後,就退避到加里肋亞去了;後又離開納匝肋,來住在海邊的葛法翁,即住在則步隆和納斐塔里境內。這應驗了依撒意亞先知所說的話:「則布隆地與納斐塔里地,通海大路,約旦河東,外方人的加里肋亞,那坐在黑暗中的百姓,看見了浩光;那些坐在死亡陰影之地的人,為他們出現了光明。」從那時起,耶穌開始宣講說:「你們悔改吧!因為天國臨近了。」
耶穌走遍了全加里肋亞,在他們的會堂內施教,宣講天國的福音,治好民間各種疾病,各種災殃。他的名聲傳遍了整個敘利亞。人就把一切有病的、受各種疾病痛苦煎熬的、附魔的、癲間的、癱瘓的,都給他送來,他都治好了他們。於是有許多群眾從加里肋亞、「十城區」、耶路撒冷、猶太和約旦河東岸來跟隨了他。
—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 4:12-17,23-25

12 Now when he heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee; 13 and leaving Nazareth he went and dwelt in Caper’na-um by the sea, in the territory of Zeb’ulun and Naph’tali, 14 that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: 15 “The land of Zeb’ulun and the land of Naph’tali, toward the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles — 16 the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned.” 17 From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
23 And he went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every infirmity among the people. 24 So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, and paralytics, and he healed them. 25 And great crowds followed him from Galilee and the Decap’olis and Jerusalem and Judea and from beyond the Jordan.

瑪4:12-17, 23-25  (其他經文──若一3:22-4:6 詠2)
耶穌聽到若翰被監禁以後,就退避到加里肋亞去了;後又離開納匝肋,來住在海邊的葛法翁,即住在則步隆和納斐塔里境內。這應驗了依撒意亞先知所說的話:「則布隆地與納斐塔里地,通海大路,約旦河東,外方人的加里肋亞,那坐在黑暗中的百姓,看見了浩光;那些坐在死亡陰影之地的人,為他們出現了光明。」從那時起,耶穌開始宣講說:「你們悔改吧!因為天國臨近了。」
耶穌走遍了全加里肋亞,在他們的會堂內施教,宣講天國的福音,治好民間各種疾病,各種災殃。他的名聲傳遍了整個敘利亞。人就把一切有病的、受各種疾病痛苦煎熬的、附魔的、癲癇的、癱瘓的,都給他送來,他都治好了他們。於是有許多群眾從加里肋亞、「十城區」、耶路撒冷、猶太和約旦河東岸來跟隨了他。

默 想

  • 洗者若翰出於正義,被收進監裡。耶穌完全明白發生了什麼事,他選擇了沉著氣,默默地做著該做的事──向眾人宣講:你們悔改吧!因為天國臨近了。
  • 耶穌治好患病的人,因為他憐憫他們。這也是「宣告」喜訊的另一個方式。
  • 耶穌以他不會麻木的憐憫之心,感動眾人,也直接無諱地,讓大家體會他的臨在。
  • 那顆領會耶穌臨在的心,是主動感恩的心,也是回轉的心。有耶穌同在,就有真正的平安。
