聖額我略一世 (教宗、聖師) (紀念)

恭讀聖路加福音 4:31-37

那時候,耶穌下到加里肋亞的葛法翁城,就在安息日教訓人。人都十分驚奇他的教訓,因為他的話具有一種權威。在會堂裏有一個附著邪魔惡鬼的人,他大聲喊叫說:「啊!納匝肋人耶穌,我們與你有什麼相干?你來毀滅我們嗎?我知道你是誰:你是天主的聖者。」耶穌叱責他說:「不要作聲!從這人身上出去!」魔鬼把那人摔倒在人中間,便從他身上出去了,絲毫沒有傷害他。遂有一種驚駭籠罩了眾人,他們彼此談論說:「這是什麼事,他用權柄和能力命令邪魔,而他們竟出去了?」他的名聲便傳遍了附近各地。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 4:31-37

31 And he went down to Caper’na-um, a city of Galilee. And he was teaching them on the Sabbath; 32 and they were astonished at his teaching, for his word was with authority. 33 And in the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon; and he cried out with a loud voice, 34 “Ah! What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.” 35 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” And when the demon had thrown him down in the midst, he came out of him, having done him no harm. 36 And they were all amazed and said to one another, “What is this word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out.” 37 And reports of him went out into every place in the surrounding region.

路4:31-37
(讀經──得前5:1-6, 9-11 詠27)

耶穌下到加里肋亞的葛法翁城,就在安息日教訓人。人都十分驚奇他的教訓,因為他的話具有一種權威。在會堂裡有一個附著邪魔惡鬼的人,他大聲喊叫說:「啊!納匝肋人耶穌,我們與你有什麼相干?你來毀滅我們嗎?我知道你是誰:你是天主的聖者。」耶穌叱責他說:「不要作聲!從這人身上出去!」魔鬼把那人摔倒在人中間,便從他身上出去了,絲毫沒有傷害他。遂有一種驚駭籠罩了眾人,他們彼此談論說:「這是什麼事,他用權柄和能力命令邪魔,而他們竟出去了?」他的名聲便傳遍了附近各地。

默 想

  • 耶穌之所以說話具有權威,相信不單止因為他有口才、說話動聽、靠技巧,而是由於他與天父的緊密連結。
  • 但耶穌從來不自恃自己驅魔的能力,試想你是故事中一位目睹事情發生的人,你會因耶穌的阻嚇邪魔的能力,抑或因為他的屬靈氣質而動容?
  • 這是小小的測試。兩種取向反映我們對生命的要求及路向。前者比較看重表面的伎倆,後者似乎突顯對生命的深度要求,希望更能領略與天父的親密關係,是怎麼的一回事。

恭讀聖路加福音 4:16-30

那時候,耶穌來到了納匝肋,自己曾受教養的地方;按他的習慣,就在安息日那天進了會堂,並站起來要誦讀。有人把依撒意亞先知書遞給他;他遂展開書卷,找到了一處,上邊寫說:「上主的神臨於我身上,因為他給我傅了油,派遣我向貧窮人傳報喜訊,向俘虜宣告釋放,向盲者宣告復明,使受壓迫者獲得自由,宣佈上主恩慈之年。」他把書卷捲起來,交給侍役,就坐下了。會堂內眾人的眼睛都注視著他。他便開始對他們說:「你們剛才聽過的這段聖經,今天應驗了。」眾人都稱讚他,驚奇他口中所說的動聽的話。並且說:「這不是若瑟的兒子嗎?」他回答他們說:「你們必定要對我說這句俗話:醫生,醫治你自己吧!我們聽說你在葛法翁所行的一切,也在你的家鄉這裏行吧!」他又說:「我實在告訴你們:沒有一個先知在本鄉受悅納的。我據實告訴你們:在厄里亞時代,天閉塞了三年零六個月,遍地起了大饑荒,在以色列原有許多寡婦,厄里亞並沒有被派到她們中一個那裏去,而只到了漆冬匝爾法特的一個寡婦那裏。在厄里叟先知時代,在以色列有許多癩病人。他們中沒有一個得潔淨的,只有敘利亞的納阿曼。」在會堂中聽見這話的人,都忿怒填胸,起來把他趕出城外,領他到了山崖上——他們的城是建在山上的——要把他推下去。他卻由他們中間過去走了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 4:16-30

16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up; and he went to the synagogue, as his custom was, on the Sabbath day. And he stood up to read; 17 and there was given to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. He opened the book and found the place where it was written, 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, 19 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” 20 And he closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant, and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. 21 And he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” 22 And all spoke well of him, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth; and they said, “Is not this Joseph’s son?” 23 And he said to them, “Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, `Physician, heal yourself; what we have heard you did at Caper’na-um, do here also in your own country.'” 24 And he said, “Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his own country. 25 But in truth, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Eli’jah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when there came a great famine over all the land; 26 and Eli’jah was sent to none of them but only to Zar’ephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 27 And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Eli’sha; and none of them was cleansed, but only Na’aman the Syrian.” 28 When they heard this, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. 29 And they rose up and put him out of the city, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw him down headlong. 30 But passing through the midst of them he went away.
