神父講道 – 常年期第十七週 (週五) (2012年8月3日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 13:54-58

那時,耶穌來到自己的家鄉,在會堂裏教訓人,以致人們都驚訝說:「這人從那裏得了這樣的智慧和奇能?這人不是那木匠的兒子?他的母親不是叫瑪利亞,他的弟兄不是叫雅各伯、若瑟、西滿和猶達嗎?他的姊妹不是都在我們這裏嗎?那麼他的這一切是從那來的呢?」他們就對他起了反感。耶穌卻對他們說:「先知除了在自己的本鄉本家外,沒有不受尊敬的。」他在那裏,因為他們不信,沒有多行奇能。

—上主的話。

(17th Week in Ordinary Time – Friday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:54-58

54 and coming to his own country he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, “Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? 56 And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all this?” 57 And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” 58 And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪13:54-58    (讀經 ── 耶26:1-9   詠69)
耶穌來到自己的家鄉,在會堂裡教訓人,以致人們都驚訝說:「這人從那裡得了這樣的智慧和奇能?這人不是那木匠的兒子?他的母親不是叫瑪利亞,他的弟兄不是叫雅各伯、若瑟、西滿和猶達嗎?他的姊妹不是都在我們這裡嗎?那麼他的這一切是從那來的呢?」他們就對他起了反感。耶穌卻對他們說:「先知除了在自己的本鄉本家外,沒有不受尊敬的。」他在那裡,因為他們不信,沒有多行奇能。

默 想

  • 耶穌的經驗,是我們今天很多人的經驗。我們可以怎麼做呢?
  • 耶穌的做法是低調地離開!但我們通常是覺得不公平、憤怒,誓要討回公道,結果越鬧越大。當然,結果就越來越差!
  • 耶穌在此給我們示範了什麼叫放手。連天主子也要退一步,我們憑的是什麼?
  • 請記著,外面世界大的是!
