神父講道 – 常年期第二十七週 (週五) (2012年10月12日)

恭讀聖路加福音 11:15-26

那時候,人群中有人說:「耶穌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,便對他們說:「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,如果有個比他更強的人來戰勝他,必會把他所依賴的一切武器都奪去,而瓜分他的贓物。不隨同我的,就是反對我;不同我收集的,就是分散。
「邪魔從人身上出去後,走遍乾旱之地,尋找一個安息之所,卻沒有找著;他於是說:我要回到我出來的那屋裏去。他來到後,見裏面已打掃清潔,裝飾整齊,就去帶了另外七個比自己更惡的魔鬼來,進去,住在那裏;那人後來的處境,就比先前的更壞了。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 11:15-26

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. 24 “When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through waterless places seeking rest; and finding none he says, `I will return to my house from which I came.’ 25 And when he comes he finds it swept and put in order. 26 Then he goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路11:15-26   (讀經 ── 迦3:7-14   詠111)
人群中有人說:「耶穌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,便對他們說:「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,如果有個比他更強的人來戰勝他,必會把他所依賴的一切武器收集的,就是分散。
「邪魔從人身上出去後,走遍乾旱之地,尋找一個安息之所,卻沒有找著;他於是說:我要回到我出來的那屋裡去。他來到後,見裡面已打掃清潔,裝飾整齊,就去帶了另外七個比自己更惡的魔鬼來,進去,住在那裡;那人後來的處境,就比先前的更壞了。」

默 想

  • 曾經看過一些上完life dynamic課程的朋友,個性或待人接物,完全變了。因為我們內心沒有自己的一套理念,結果便被外來更強的系統佔據了。
  • 其實宗教的情況也是一樣。我們接受了天主教的一套,我們的生命便有了改變。
  • 但是,若我們只是在頭腦上接受,沒有在生命上扎根,最終會被外在更強的侵佔我們,只有生命真的經驗過耶穌,我們才會死心塌地跟隨祂。
  • 所以,這世界恐怖的不是邪魔,而是我們根本是根基脆弱。
