神父講道 – 主顯節後 (週五) (2013年1月11日)

恭讀聖路加福音 5:12-16

有一次,耶穌在一座城裏,看,有一個遍體長癩的人,見了耶穌,就俯首至地求他說:「主!你若願意,就能潔淨我。」耶穌便伸手撫摸他說:「我願意,你潔淨了吧!」癩病就立刻由他身上退去。耶穌切切囑咐他不要告訴別人,並說:「但要去叫司祭檢驗你,為你的潔淨,獻上梅瑟所規定的,給他們當作證據。」他的名聲更傳揚開了,遂有許多人齊集來聽教,並為治好自己的病症。耶穌卻退入荒野中去祈禱。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 5:12-16

12 While he was in one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy; and when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and besought him, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” 13 And he stretched out his hand, and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately the leprosy left him. 14 And he charged him to tell no one; but “go and show yourself to the priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, as Moses commanded, for a proof to the people.” 15 But so much the more the report went abroad concerning him; and great multitudes gathered to hear and to be healed of their infirmities. 16 But he withdrew to the wilderness and prayed.

路5:12-16   (讀經 ── 若一5:5-13   詠147)
有一次,耶穌在一座城裡,看,有一個遍體長癩的人,見了耶穌,就俯首至地求他說:「主!你若願意,就能潔淨我。」耶穌便伸手撫摸他說:「我願意,你潔淨了吧!」癩病就立刻由他身上退去。耶穌切切囑咐他不要告訴別人,並說:「但要去叫司祭檢驗你,為你的潔淨,獻上梅瑟所規定的,給他們當作證據。」他的名聲更傳揚開了,遂有許多人齊集來聽教,並為治好自己的病症。耶穌卻退入荒野中去祈禱。

默 想

  • 耶穌時代,癩病人的痛苦不單止在皮膚病本身,更因為此病被孤立、隔離、蔑視、唾棄,心靈的痛苦幾乎陷於絕境。
  • 癩病人問耶穌願意與否,是充分表達對耶穌的信賴,他深信,只要耶穌願意,他必被治癒。
  • 感覺自己不潔的人,陰影深刻,尤其是心靈上的陰影或包袱;他們必須投以決心與信心,迎向得到潔淨的一天。
  • 無論我們如何不濟,基督的臨在,必可令我們重新領略,自己原本就是上主鍾愛的、可拯救的一位。
  • 無論耶穌如何經常被眾人簇擁,他總會退到荒野,靜心祈禱,跟天父緊密聯繫。
