神父講道 – 常年期第一週 (週六) (2011年1月15日)

聖劉方濟司鐸殉道
恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 2:13-17
那時候,耶穌又出去,到了海邊。群眾都到他跟前,他便教訓他們。當他前行時,看見阿耳斐的兒子肋未坐在稅關上,便向他說:「你跟隨我吧!」肋未就起來跟隨了耶穌。當耶穌在肋未坐席的時候,有許多稅吏和罪人,也與耶穌和他的門徒一起坐席,因為已有許多人跟隨了他。法利塞黨的經師看見耶穌與罪人和稅吏一起吃飯,就對他的門徒說:「怎麼,他與罪人和稅吏一起吃喝?」耶穌聽了,就對他們說:「不是健康的人需要醫生,而是有病的人;我不是來召義人,而是召罪人。」
—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 2:13-17

13 He went out again beside the sea; and all the crowd gathered about him, and he taught them. 14 And as he passed on, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax office, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he rose and followed him. 15 And as he sat at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were sitting with Jesus and his disciples; for there were many who followed him. 16 And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 17 And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷2:13-17  (其他經文──希4:12-16   詠19)
耶穌又出去,到了海邊。群眾都到他跟前,他便教訓他們。當他前行時,看見阿耳斐的兒子肋未坐在稅關上,便向他說:「你跟隨我吧!」肋未就起來跟隨了耶穌。當耶穌在肋未坐席的時候,有許多稅吏和罪人,也與耶穌和他的門徒一起坐席,因為已有許多人跟隨了他。法利塞黨的經師看見耶穌與罪人和稅吏一起吃飯,就對他的門徒說:「怎麼,他與罪人和稅吏一起吃喝?」耶穌聽了,就對他們說:「不是健康的人需要醫生,而是有病的人;我不是來召義人,而是召罪人。」

默 想

  • 耶穌明知道當自己與罪人和稅吏一起吃喝時,必會招致別人的指指點點,尤其是法利塞人和經師,但他根本不在乎別人的眼光。他的言行,不是做給人看的。
  • 他與罪人和稅吏一起,因為他見到他們的時候,動了憐憫的心,耶穌的憐憫心永不會麻木及改變,多久也是這樣敏銳。
  • 他向罪人和稅吏動了憐憫的心,因為他視他們是人,以完全尊重的態度對待他們,在耶穌眼中,無論有罪、無罪的人,都有人的尊嚴,都需要備受尊重。
  • 當他越尊重他們,也越發憐憫他們,他們也必被耶穌的愛所感動,也更願意回應,一如肋未一樣。
