神父講道 – 常年期第七週 (週五) (2013年5月24日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 10:1-12

耶穌從那裏起身,來到猶太境界,約旦河的對岸,群眾又聚集到他那裏,他又照常教訓他們。有些法利塞人前來問耶穌:許不許丈夫休妻﹖意思是要試探他。耶穌回答他們說:「梅瑟吩咐了你們什麼﹖」他們說:「梅瑟准許了寫休書休妻。」耶穌對他們說:「這是為了你們的心硬, 他才給你們寫下了這條法令。但是,從創造之初,天主造了他們一男一女。為此,人要離開他的父母,依附自己的妻子,二人成為一體,以致他們再不是兩個,而是一體了。所以,天主所結合的,人不可拆散。」回到家裏,門徒又問他這事,耶穌對他們說:「誰若休自己的妻子而另娶,就是犯姦淫,辜負妻子;若妻子離棄自己的丈夫而另嫁,也是犯姦淫。 」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 10:1-12

1 And he left there and went to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan, and crowds gathered to him again; and again, as his custom was, he taught them. 2 And Pharisees came up and in order to test him asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” 3 He answered them, “What did Moses command you?” 4 They said, “Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to put her away.” 5 But Jesus said to them, “For your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment. 6 But from the beginning of creation, `God made them male and female.’ 7 `For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. 9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.” 10 And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter. 11 And he said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; 12 and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”

谷10:1-12   (讀經 ── 德6:5-17   詠119)
耶穌從那裡起身,來到猶太境界,約旦河的對岸,群眾又聚集到他那裡,他又照常教訓他們。有些法利塞人前來問耶穌:許不許丈夫休妻?意思是要試探他。耶穌回答他們說:「梅瑟吩咐了你們什麼?」他們說:「梅瑟准許了寫休書休妻。」耶穌對他們說:「這是為了你們的心硬,他才給你們寫下了這條法令。但是,從創造之初,天主造了他們一男一女。為此,人要離開他的父母,依附自己的妻子,二人成為一體,以致他們再不是兩個,而是一體了。所以,天主所結合的,人不可拆散。」回到家裡,門徒又問他這事,耶穌對他們說:「誰若休自己的妻子而另娶,就是犯姦淫,辜負妻子;若妻子離棄自己的丈夫而另嫁,也是犯姦淫。 」

默 想

  • 一名教授婚姻倫理神學的神父曾說:「婚姻是讓那兩名度婚姻生活的男女,用一生的時間,學習專一地去愛一個人的功課。」這精句言猶在耳,至今仍在品嚐咀嚼。婚姻路,一點都不容易,磨合期因應每一對的夫婦而各異。
  • 在婚姻的磨合中,是各人成就對方的一個契機。那段婚姻是否得以成長,也跟夫婦二人各自是否有成長,息息相關。
  • 如果婚姻生活正處於膠著狀態,原來存在一個鐵律,其中一方願意先行一步,作出一些改變,假以時日,產生「蝴蝶效應」,對方一定「收到」,並作出正面的回應。當然,此法也視乎個別夫婦的特質及遇到的問題,需要的時間也有長短之別。
