神父講道 – 聖思嘉 (貞女) (紀念) (週四) (2011年2月10日)

聖思嘉 (貞女) (紀念)
恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 7:24-30
耶穌從勒乃撒勒動身,往提洛和漆冬境內去了。耶穌進了一家,不願任何人知道,但是不能隱藏。當下就有一個婦人,她的女兒附了邪魔,一聽說耶穌,就來跪伏在他腳前。這婦人是個外邦人,生於敘利腓尼基;她懇求耶穌把魔鬼從她女兒身上趕出去。耶穌向她說:「應先讓兒女們吃飽了,因為拿兒女的餅扔給小狗是不對的。」那婦人卻回答說:「主,是啊!可是小狗在桌子底下,也可吃到孩子們的碎屑呢!」耶穌對她說:「為了這句話,你去吧!魔鬼已從你女兒身上出去了!」她一回到自己家裏,看見孩子躺在床上,魔鬼已出去了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 7:24-30

24 And from there he arose and went away to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And he entered a house, and would not have any one know it; yet he could not be hid. 25 But immediately a woman, whose little daughter was possessed by an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell down at his feet. 26 Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoeni’cian by birth. And she begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 And he said to her, “Let the children first be fed, for it is not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 28 But she answered him, “Yes, Lord; yet even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” 29 And he said to her, “For this saying you may go your way; the demon has left your daughter.” 30 And she went home, and found the child lying in bed, and the demon gone.

谷7:24-30 (其他經文──創2:18-25  詠128)
耶穌從勒乃撒勒動身,往提洛和漆冬境內去了。耶穌進了一家,不願任何人知道,但是不能隱藏。當下就有一個婦人,她的女兒附了邪魔,一聽說耶穌,就來跪伏在他腳前。這婦人是個外邦人,生於敘利腓尼基;她懇求耶穌把魔鬼從她女兒身上趕出去。耶穌向她說:「應先讓兒女們吃飽了,因為拿兒女的餅扔給小狗是不對的。」那婦人卻回答說:「主,是啊!可是小狗在桌子底下,也可吃到孩子們的碎屑呢!」耶穌對她說:「為了這句話,你去吧!魔鬼已從你女兒身上出去了!」她一回到自己家裡,看見孩子躺在床上,魔鬼已出去了。

默 想

  • 這婦人懇求耶穌的姿態,可謂死纏爛打。她深信耶穌必可拯救她的女兒,縱然她是外邦人。
  • 試過抓著天主不放嗎?記得舊約的雅各伯嗎?他牢牢地抓緊「那人」的腳,直到「那人」給他祝福為止。
  • 這婦人的堅持,以及聖祖雅各伯的堅持,我們願意學習嗎?抓緊天主不放,意味與祂建立一份更深的關係,一份那怕和諧那怕衝突的關係。
  • 我們願意抓緊天主,還是抓緊一些令我們不自由的東西?
  • 抓緊天主,即是走向天主。
