神父講道 – 常年期第七週 (週一) (2012年2月20日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 9:14-29

那時候,耶穌同伯多祿、雅各伯和若望下山,來到門徒那裏,看見一大群人圍著他們,經師和他們正在辯論。全民眾一看見了耶穌,就都驚奇,立刻向前跑去問候他。耶穌問門徒說:「你們和他們辯論什麼?」人群中有一個回答說:「師傅,我帶了我的兒子來見你,他附著一個啞巴魔鬼;無論在那裏,魔鬼抓住他,就把他摔倒。他就口吐白沫,咬牙切齒,並且僵硬了。我曾請你的門徒把魔鬼逐出,他們卻不能。」耶穌開口向他們說:「哎!無信的世代!我與你們在一起要到幾時呢?我容忍你們要到幾時呢?帶他到我這裏來!」他們就把孩子領到耶穌跟前。魔鬼一見耶穌,立時使那孩子拘攣了一陣,那孩子便倒在地上,打滾吐沫。耶穌問他的父親說:「這事發生在他身上有多少時候了?」他回答說:「從小的時候;魔鬼屢次把他投到火裏或水裏,要害死他。但是,你若能做什麼,你就憐憫我們,幫助我們吧!」耶穌對他說:「『你若能』,為信的人,一切都是可能的!」小孩子的父親立刻喊說:「我信!請你補助我的無信吧!」耶穌看見群眾都跑過來,就叱責邪魔說:「又聾又啞的魔鬼,我命你從他身上出去!再不要進入他內!」魔鬼就喊叫起來,猛烈地使那孩子拘攣了一陣,就出去了;那孩子好像死了一樣,以致有許多人說:「他死了!」但是耶穌握住他的手,拉他起來,他就起來了。耶穌進到家裏,他的門徒私下問他說:「為什麼我們不能趕他出去?」耶穌對他們說:「這一類,非用祈禱【和禁食】,是不能趕出去的。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 9:14-29

14 And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd about them, and scribes arguing with them. 15 And immediately all the crowd, when they saw him, were greatly amazed, and ran up to him and greeted him. 16 And he asked them, “What are you discussing with them?” 17 And one of the crowd answered him, “Teacher, I brought my son to you, for he has a dumb spirit; 18 and wherever it seizes him, it dashes him down; and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid; and I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able.” 19 And he answered them, “O faithless generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to me.” 20 And they brought the boy to him; and when the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. 21 And Jesus asked his father, “How long has he had this?” And he said, “From childhood. 22 And it has often cast him into the fire and into the water, to destroy him; but if you can do anything, have pity on us and help us.” 23 And Jesus said to him, “If you can! All things are possible to him who believes.” 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” 25 And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You dumb and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him, and never enter him again.” 26 And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse; so that most of them said, “He is dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. 28 And when he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?” 29 And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”

谷9:14-29    (讀經 ── 雅3:13-18   詠19)
耶穌同伯多祿、雅各伯和若望下山,來到門徒那裡,看見一大群人圍著他們,經師和他們正在辯論。全民眾一看見了耶穌,就都驚奇,立刻向前跑去問候他。耶穌問門徒說:「你們和他們辯論什麼?」人群中有一個回答說:「師傅,我帶了我的兒子來見你,他附著一個啞巴魔鬼;無論在那裡,魔鬼抓住他,就把他摔倒。他就口吐白沫,咬牙切齒,並且僵硬了。我曾請你的門徒把魔鬼逐出,他們卻不能。」耶穌開口向他們說:「哎!無信的世代!我與你們在一起要到幾時呢?我容忍你們要到幾時呢?帶他到我這裡來!」他們就把孩子領到耶穌跟前。魔鬼一見耶穌,立時使那孩子拘攣了一陣,那孩子便倒在地上,打滾吐沫。耶穌問他的父親說:「這事發生在他身上有多少時候了?」他回答說:「從小的時候;魔鬼屢次把他投到火裡或水裡,要害死他。但是,你若能做什麼,你就憐憫我們,幫助我們吧!」耶穌對他說:「『你若能』,為信的人,一切都是可能的!」小孩子的父親立刻喊說:「我信!請你補助我的無信吧!」耶穌看見群眾都跑過來,就叱責邪魔說:「又聾又啞的魔鬼,我命你從他身上出去!再不要進入他內!」魔鬼就喊叫起來,猛烈地使那孩子拘攣了一陣,就出去了;那孩子好像死了一樣,以致有許多人說:「他死了!」但是耶穌握住他的手,拉他起來,他就起來了。耶穌進到家裡,他的門徒私下問他說:「為什麼我們不能趕他出去?」耶穌對他們說:「這一類,非用祈禱【和禁食】,是不能趕出去的。」

默 想

  • 小孩子的父親那句話:「我信!請你補助我的無信吧!」這是一句十分令人感動的說話,為什麼?說話中蘊含自己的謙卑、掙扎、交託與決心。
  • 我們其實都常常處於這境況,因為我們都不是百分百有信德,但我們都想有決心去相信。
  • 看到自己的「缺」,已經是一份莫大的福份,足夠我們願意交託自己。
  • 我們的信德,唯有由上主補助,才可圓滿。
  • 是我們與上主的合作,不是單憑自己。靠自己,是因為我們太自我。
  • 唯有放下自我,我們才開始走向天主。
