神父講道 – 常年期第十八週 (週三) (2013年8月7日)

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 ── 戶13:1-2, 25-14:1, 26-29, 34-35  詠106)
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

  • 這世界還有更大的挑戰權威嗎?一個人對一個神;一個外邦人對一個猶太拉比;一個卑微的婦女對一個雄辯的男子;一個不合理的要求對一個明確的宗教標準……
  • 這種情況就好像達味對哥肋雅,沒有勝算。但結果是完全相反的,因為她遇到的,是一位從至高至尊降卑到最低的,與人同甘共苦的神。
  • 我們今天之所以有希望,就是這一個神並不高高在上!
  • 只要我們願意,我們是可以去抓緊這個神,只要我們永不放棄,天主是不會放棄我們的!
