神父講道 – 常年期第二週 (週二) (2011年1月18日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 2:23-28
有一次,正當安息日,耶穌從麥田裏路過,他的門徒在行路時掐食起麥穗來。法利塞人向耶穌說:「你看!他們為什麼做安息日不許做的事?」耶穌對法利塞人說:「你們從未讀過:達味在急迫中和同他一起的人,在饑餓時所作的事嗎?當厄貝雅塔爾作大司祭時,達味怎樣進了天主的殿,吃了除司祭外,誰也不許吃的供餅,並且還給了同他一起的人?」耶穌又對他們說:「安息日是為人立的,並不是人為了安息日;所以,人子也是安息日的主。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 2:23-28

23 One Sabbath he was going through the grainfields; and as they made their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain. 24 And the Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the Sabbath?” 25 And he said to them, “Have you never read what David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and those who were with him: 26 how he entered the house of God, when Abi’athar was high priest, and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those who were with him?” 27 And he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath; 28 so the Son of man is lord even of the Sabbath.”

谷2:23-28  (其他經文──希6:10-20   詠111)
有一次,正當安息日,耶穌從麥田裡路過,他的門徒在行路時掐食起麥穗來。法利塞人向耶穌說:「你看!他們為什麼做安息日不許做的事?」耶穌對法利塞人說:「你們從未讀過:達味在急迫中和同他一起的人,在饑餓時所作的事嗎?當厄貝雅塔爾作大司祭時,達味怎樣進了天主的殿,吃了除司祭外,誰也不許吃的供餅,並且還給了同他一起的人?」耶穌又對他們說:「安息日是為人立的,並不是人為了安息日;所以,人子也是安息日的主。」

默 想

  • 安息日最最原本的精神,是在此日休息、停止工作,好全心全意敬拜上主,心靈也因此得到淨化、休息。
  • 很明顯,在耶穌的時代,安息日已變相成為「規條」,法利塞人只管嚴守規條本身,它的精髓已蕩然無存。
  • 安息日甚至成為法利塞人攻擊的「武器」。耶穌則直言不諱,安息日是為人立的,人的自由是無價的。
  • 我們心中有沒有一個「安息日」?或不自覺將「安息日」加諸別人,徒添他人壓力,換來是分裂、不和及難以寬恕?

聖安當院長 (紀念)
恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 2:18-22
當時,若翰的門徒和法利塞人正在禁食。有人來向耶穌說:「為什麼若翰的門徒和法利塞人的門徒禁食,而你的門徒卻不禁食呢?」耶穌對他們說:「伴郎豈能在新郎還與他們在一起的時候禁食?他們與新郎在一起的時候,決不能禁食。但日子將要來到:當新郎從他們中被劫去時,在那一天,他們就要禁食了。沒有人將未漂過的布補在舊衣服上的;不然,補上的那塊新布要扯裂了舊的,破綻就更加壞了。也沒有人把新酒裝在舊皮囊裏的;不然,酒漲破了皮囊,酒和皮囊都喪失了;而是新酒應裝在新皮囊裏。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 2:18-22

18 Now John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting; and people came and said to him, “Why do John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” 19 And Jesus said to them, “Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 20 The days will come, when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day. 21 No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; if he does, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear is made. 22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost, and so are the skins; but new wine is for fresh skins.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
