神父講道 – 常年期第一週 (週四) (2011年1月13日)

聖怡樂(依拉略)主教、聖師
恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 1:40-45
那時候,有一個癩病人來到耶穌跟前,跪下求他說:「你若願意,就能潔淨我。」耶穌動了憐憫的心,就伸手撫摸他,向他說:「我願意,你潔淨了吧!」癩病立時脫離了他,他就潔淨了。然後,耶穌嚴厲警告他,立即催他走,並向他說:「當心!什麼也不可告訴人,但去叫司祭檢驗你,並為你的潔淨,奉獻梅瑟所規定的,給他們當作證據。」但那人一出去,便開始極力宣揚,把這事傳揚開了,以致耶穌不能再公然進城,只好留在外邊荒野的地方;但人們卻從各處到他跟前來。
—基督的福音。

(1st week in Ordinary Time – Thursday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 1:40-45

40 And a leper came to him beseeching him, and kneeling said to him, “If you will, you can make me clean.” 41 Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, “I will; be clean.” 42 And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. 43 And he sternly charged him, and sent him away at once, 44 and said to him, “See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, for a proof to the people.” 45 But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷1:40-45 (其他經文──希3:7-14  詠95)
有一個癩病人來到耶穌跟前,跪下求他說:「你若願意,就能潔淨我。」耶穌動了憐憫的心,就伸手撫摸他,向他說:「我願意,你潔淨了吧!」癩病立時脫離了他,他就潔淨了。然後,耶穌嚴厲警告他,立即催他走,並向他說:「當心!什麼也不可告訴人,但去叫司祭檢驗你,並為你的潔淨,奉獻梅瑟所規定的,給他們當作證據。」但那人一出去,便開始極力宣揚,把這事傳揚開了,以致耶穌不能再公然進城,只好留在外邊荒野的地方;但人們卻從各處到他跟前來。

默 想

  • 癩病人在當時的社會,被認為因為犯了罪,或祖先犯了罪,所以得病,也表示他們是不潔的人。這樣看,癩病人深覺被社會唾棄,有些甚至認命,認定自己罪不得赦,也不能痊癒。
  • 經文中的癩病人有勇氣亦有信德,他相信只要耶穌願意,必可把他治癒。
  • 他的信德救了自己,耶穌的憐憫之心救了他。
  • 問問自己:我的信德有多大?我願意向上主投靠嗎?我對別人的憐憫之心又有多少?
