神父講道 – 常年期第二十二週 (週三) (2013年9月4日)

恭讀聖路加福音 4:38-44

那時候,耶穌從會堂裏出來,進了西滿的家。西滿的岳母正發高熱,他們為他祈求耶穌。耶穌就走到他身邊,叱退熱症,熱症就離開了她;她立刻起來服侍他們。日落後,眾人把所有患各種病症的,都領到他跟前,他就把手覆在每一個人身上,治好了他們。又有些從許多人身上出來的魔鬼吶喊說:「你是天主子!」他便叱責他們,不許他們說話,因為他們知道他是默西亞。天一亮,耶穌就出去到了荒野地方;群眾就尋找他,一直來到他那裏,挽留他不要離開他們,他卻向他們說:「我也必須向別的城傳報天主國的喜訊,因為我被派遣,正是為了這事。」他就常在猶太的各會堂中宣講。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 4:38-44

38 And he arose and left the synagogue, and entered Simon’s house. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was ill with a high fever, and they besought him for her. 39 And he stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her; and immediately she rose and served them. 40 Now when the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them. 41 And demons also came out of many, crying, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them, and would not allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ. 42 And when it was day he departed and went into a lonely place. And the people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them; 43 but he said to them, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose.” 44 And he was preaching in the synagogues of Judea.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路4:38-44
(讀經──哥1:1-8 詠52)

耶穌從會堂裡出來,進了西滿的家。西滿的岳母正發高熱,他們為他祈求耶穌。耶穌就走到他身邊,叱退熱症,熱症就離開了她;她立刻起來服侍他們。日落後,眾人把所有患各種病症的,都領到他跟前,他就把手覆在每一個人身上,治好了他們。又有些從許多人身上出來的魔鬼吶喊說:「你是天主子!」他便叱責他們,不許他們說話,因為他們知道他是默西亞。天一亮,耶穌就出去到了荒野地方;群眾就尋找他,一直來到他那裡,挽留他不要離開他們,他卻向他們說:「我也必須向別的城傳報天主國的喜訊,因為我被派遣,正是為了這事。」他就常在猶太的各會堂中宣講。

默 想

  • 群眾為何熱熾地尋找耶穌,又挽留他不許他離開?對他們來說,耶穌等於一道萬靈藥,解決他們即時的需要。
  • 如果以這個角度看,他們真的需要耶穌嗎?還是只想解決一些即時的問題?
  • 我們跟隨基督,所為何事?這個目的問題,是我們不時反省的好材料。
  • 耶穌明白眾人的需要,他也沒有被大家簇擁,備受歡迎而變得飄飄然,他十分清楚自己的方向。他希望將天國的訊息,帶給聽得進耳中的人們。我們聽得到嗎?
