神父講道 – 四旬期第三週 (週四) (2011年3月31日)

恭讀聖路加福音 11:14-23
那時,耶穌驅逐一個魔鬼——他是使人瘖啞的魔鬼;他出去以後,啞巴便說出話來,群眾都驚訝不止。但是,其中有人說:「他是仗賴魔王貝耳則步驅魔。」另一些人試探耶穌,向他要求一個自天而來的徵兆。耶穌知道了他們的心意,便給他們說:「凡是一國自相紛爭,必成廢墟,一家一家的敗落。如果撒殫自相紛爭,他的國如何能存立呢?因為你們說我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔,如果我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔,你們的子弟們是仗賴誰驅魔呢?為此,他們將是你們的裁判者。如果我是仗賴天主的手指驅魔,那麼,天主的國已來到你們中間了。幾時壯士佩帶武器,看守自己的宅舍,他的財產,必能安全。但是,如果有個比他強壯的來戰勝他,必會把他所依仗的一切器械都奪去,再瓜分他的贓物。不隨同我的,就是反對我;不同我收集的,就是分散。」
—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 11:14-23

14 Now he was casting out a demon that was dumb; when the demon had gone out, the dumb man spoke, and the people marveled. 15 But some of them said, “He casts out demons by Be-el’zebul, the prince of demons”; 16 while others, to test him, sought from him a sign from heaven. 17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and a divided household falls. 18 And if Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that I cast out demons by Be-el’zebul. 19 And if I cast out demons by Be-el’zebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 20 But if it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. 21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace; 22 but when one stronger than he assails him and overcomes him, he takes away his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoil. 23 He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路11:14-23 (其他經文──耶7:23-28  詠95)
耶穌驅逐一個魔鬼——他是使人瘖啞的魔鬼;他出去以後,啞巴便說出話來,群眾都驚訝不止。但是,其中有人說:「他是仗賴魔王貝耳則步驅魔。」另一些人試探耶穌,向他要求一個自天而來的徵兆。耶穌知道了他們的心意,便給他們說:「凡是一國自相紛爭,必成廢墟,一家一家的敗落。如果撒殫自相紛爭,他的國如何能存立呢?因為你們說我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔,如果我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔,你們的子弟們是仗賴誰驅魔呢?為此,他們將是你們的裁判者。如果我是仗賴天主的手指驅魔,那麼,天主的國已來到你們中間了。幾時壯士佩帶武器,看守自己的宅舍,他的財產,必能安全。但是,如果有個比他強壯的來戰勝他,必會把他所依仗的一切器械都奪去,再瓜分他的贓物。不隨同我的,就是反對我;不同我收集的,就是分散。」

默 想

  • 耶穌是想向眾人明證,自己不是屬於魔鬼的,且比魔鬼更強。
  • 面對眾人的質疑,聖經沒有告訴我們,耶穌感到委屈,他只是以比喻,希望更明確地陳述清楚罷了。
  • 想要求耶穌給予徵兆的人,似乎只相信肉眼見到的東西。耶穌想帶給大家的,卻是一顆信靠天父的心,也包括愛,以及他那默西亞的身分,這些都不是單憑肉眼看到的,須靠心靈的眼睛去經驗的。
  • 走進內心,向內裡尋找,我們會尋到上主,因為祂早已在我們的心內。
