聖高爾乃略 (教宗、殉道) 聖西彼廉 (主教、殉道)

恭讀聖路加福音 7:1-10

那時,耶穌進了葛法翁。有一個百夫長,他所喜愛的僕人病重垂危。百夫長聽說過耶穌的事,就打發猶太人的幾個長老往他那裏去,求他來治好自己的僕人。他們到了耶穌那裏,懇切求他說:「這個人值得你為他做這事,因為他愛護我們的民族,又給我們建造了會堂。」耶穌就同他們去了。當他離那家已不遠時,百夫長打發朋友向他說:「主啊!不必勞駕了!因為我當不起你到舍下來。為此,我也認為我不堪當親自到你跟前來,只請你說一句話,我的僕人就必好了。因為我雖是受派在人權下的,但是,在我下也有士兵;我對這個說:你去!他就去;對那個說:你來!他就來;對我的奴僕說:你作這個!他就作。」耶穌一聽這些話,就佩服他,遂轉身向跟隨自己的群眾說:「我告訴你們:連在以色列,我也沒有見過這樣大的信德。」被派去的人回到家中,見那僕人已經痊愈了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 7:1-10

1 After he had ended all his sayings in the hearing of the people he entered Caper’na-um. 2 Now a centurion had a slave who was dear to him, who was sick and at the point of death. 3 When he heard of Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his slave. 4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him earnestly, saying, “He is worthy to have you do this for him, 5 for he loves our nation, and he built us our synagogue.”6 And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; 7 therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed. 8 For I am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, `Go,’ and he goes; and to another, `Come,’ and he comes; and to my slave, `Do this,’ and he does it.” 9 When Jesus heard this he marveled at him, and turned and said to the multitude that followed him, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.” 10 And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave well.

路7:1-10  (讀經 ── 弟前2:1-8  詠28)

耶穌進了葛法翁。有一個百夫長,他所喜愛的僕人病重垂危。百夫長聽說過耶穌的事,就打發猶太人的幾個長老往他那裡去,求他來治好自己的僕人。他們到了耶穌那裡,懇切求他說:「這個人值得你為他做這事,因為他愛護我們的民族,又給我們建造了會堂。」耶穌就同他們去了。當他離那家已不遠時,百夫長打發朋友向他說:「主啊!不必勞駕了!因為我當不起你到舍下來。為此,我也認為我不堪當親自到你跟前來,只請你說一句話,我的僕人就必好了。因為我雖是受派在人權下的,但是,在我下也有士兵;我對這個說:你去!他就去;對那個說:你來!他就來;對我的奴僕說:你作這個!他就作。」耶穌一聽這些話,就佩服他,遂轉身向跟隨自己的群眾說:「我告訴你們:連在以色列,我也沒有見過這樣大的信德。」被派去的人回到家中,見那僕人已經痊癒了。

默 想

  • 每一次感恩祭領聖體前,我們都說過這位百夫長的話:「主,我當不起你到我心裡來,只要你說一句話,你的僕人就會痊癒。」
  • 之後,耶穌盛讚百夫長的信德。百夫長對耶穌有很大信心,由此也出現對耶穌的依賴之情,不堪當勞駕耶穌到他僕人那裡去,只要耶穌一句話,事就可成了。這是信德。
  • 信德是要實踐的,一如百夫長的心而付上的行動。
  • 再次領聖體時,想起這名百夫長的信德,我們可會更深信領了基督的聖體聖血,給我們堅定了信德和依賴基督的心?然後被派遣,到我們要去的地方,為主作見證。
