神父講道 – 常年期第一週 (週三) (2013年1月16日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 1:29-39

那時候,耶穌出了會堂,就同雅各伯和若望來到了西滿和安德肋的家裏。那時,西滿的岳母正躺著發燒,有人就向耶穌提起她來,耶穌上前去,握住她的手,扶她起來,熱症遂即離開了她,她就侍候他們。
到了晚上,日落之後,人把所有患病的和附邪魔的,都帶到他跟前。閤城的人都聚在門前。耶穌治好了許多患各種病症的人,驅逐了許多魔鬼,並且不許魔鬼說話,因為魔鬼認識他。
清晨,天還很黑,耶穌就起身出去,到荒野的地方,在那裏祈禱。西滿和同他在一起的人都去追尋他,找到了他,就向他說:「眾人都找你呢!」耶穌對他們說:「讓我們到別處去,到鄰近的村鎮去吧!好叫我也在那裏宣講,因為我是為這事而來的。」他遂到加里肋亞各地,在他們的會堂裏宣講,並驅逐魔鬼。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 1:29-39

29 And immediately he left the synagogue, and entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever, and immediately they told him of her. 31 And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her; and she served them. 32 That evening, at sundown, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons. 33 And the whole city was gathered together about the door. 34 And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him. 35 And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose and went out to a lonely place, and there he prayed. 36 And Simon and those who were with him pursued him, 37 and they found him and said to him, “Every one is searching for you.” 38 And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also; for that is why I came out.” 39 And he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons.

谷1:29-39   (讀經 ── 希2:14-18   詠105)
耶穌出了會堂,就同雅各伯和若望來到了西滿和安德肋的家裡。那時,西滿的岳母正躺著發燒,有人就向耶穌提起她來,耶穌上前去,握住她的手,扶她起來,熱症遂即離開了她,她就侍候他們。
到了晚上,日落之後,人把所有患病的和附邪魔的,都帶到他跟前。閤城的人都聚在門前。耶穌治好了許多患各種病症的人,驅逐了許多魔鬼,並且不許魔鬼說話,因為魔鬼認識他。
清晨,天還很黑,耶穌就起身出去,到荒野的地方,在那裡祈禱。西滿和同他在一起的人都去追尋他,找到了他,就向他說:「眾人都找你呢!」耶穌對他們說:「讓我們到別處去,到鄰近的村鎮去吧!好叫我也在那裡宣講,因為我是為這事而來的。」他遂到加里肋亞各地,在他們的會堂裡宣講,並驅逐魔鬼。

默 想

  • 從這段經文中,我們看到,耶穌真的很忙,在另一處的描述,他連吃飯的時間也沒有。
  • 從耶穌的工作成果,我們可以看到他忙是很合理的。他用了三年時間,便把整個猶太地區顛覆了,除了有權位的人外,平民百姓都歸向他。
  • 這證明了,若要有成果,即使是「神」,也要很努力工作!
  • 我們勤力不必然會有成果,但若懶惰,則必然會失敗。
