聖道明 (司鐸) (紀念)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 15:21-28

那時候,耶穌離開革乃撒勒,就退往提洛和漆冬一帶去了。看,有一個客納罕婦人,從那地方出來喊說:「主,達味之子,可憐我吧!我的女兒被魔鬼糾纏得好苦啊!」耶穌卻一句話也不回答她。他的門徒就上前求他說:「打發她走吧!因為她在我們後面不停喊叫。」耶穌回答說:「我被派遣,只是為了以色列家迷失的羊。」那婦人卻前來叩拜他說:「主,援助我吧!」耶穌回答說:「拿兒女的餅扔給小狗,是不對的。」但她說:「是啊!主,可是小狗也吃主人桌子上掉下來的碎屑。」耶穌回答她說:「啊!婦人,你的信德真大,就如你所願望的,給你成就吧!」從那時刻起,她的女兒就痊愈了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 15:21-28

21 And Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and cried, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely possessed by a demon.” 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, “Send her away, for she is crying after us.” 24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” 25 But she came and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, help me.” 26 And he answered, “It is not fair to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 27 She said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.” 28 Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly.

瑪15:21-28    (讀經 ── 耶31:1-7   詠:耶31:10-13)
耶穌離開革乃撒勒,就退往提洛和漆冬一帶去了。看,有一個客納罕婦人,從那地方出來喊說:「主,達味之子,可憐我吧!我的女兒被魔鬼糾纏得好苦啊!」耶穌卻一句話也不回答她。他的門徒就上前求他說:「打發她走吧!因為她在我們後面不停喊叫。」耶穌回答說:「我被派遣,只是為了以色列家迷失的羊。」那婦人卻前來叩拜他說:「主,援助我吧!」耶穌回答說:「拿兒女的餅扔給小狗,是不對的。」但她說:「是啊!主,可是小狗也吃主人桌子上掉下來的碎屑。」耶穌回答她說:「啊!婦人,你的信德真大,就如你所願望的,給你成就吧!」從那時刻起,她的女兒就痊癒了。

默 想

  • 這客納罕婦人真的希望耶穌是有求必應的神燈,但為何耶穌又說她信德大呢?
  • 這是因為信仰的歷程,是要經歷發展和提升的。在耶穌年代,能對耶穌有如此信德,已經很了不起;但在今天,我們已經過二千年的發展,信德的要求也要高一些。
  • 要怎樣高呢?就是要學會不用肉眼看到結果,就是生命完結時,不能看到結果,我們也願意相信。
  • 因為我們相信,現世的旅程完結後,仍然有另一個旅程等著我們,天主會在那裡報答我們。
