神父講道 – 常年期第四週 (週二) (2014年2月4日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 5:21-43

耶穌乘船渡回對岸,有大夥群眾聚集在他周圍;他遂留在海濱。那時,來了一個會堂長,名叫雅依洛,一見耶穌,就跪伏在他腳前,懇切求他說:「我的小女兒快要死了,請你來,給她覆手,叫她得救回生。」耶穌就同他去了。有一大群人跟隨著他,擁擠著他。那時,有一個婦人,患血漏已有十二年。她在許多醫生手裏,受了許多痛苦,化盡了自己所有的一切,不但沒有見效,反而病勢更加重了。她聽了有關耶穌的傳說,便來到人群中,從後邊摸了耶穌的衣裳,因為她心裏想:「我只要一摸他的衣裳,必然會好的。」她的血源立刻涸竭了,並且覺得身上的疾病也好了。耶穌立時覺得有一種能力從自己身上出去,就在人群中回過頭來說:「誰摸了我的衣裳?」他的門徒向他說:「你看!群眾四面擁擠著你,你還問:誰摸了我?」耶穌四周觀望,要看作這事的婦人。那婦人明知在自己身上所成的事,就戰戰兢兢地前來,跪伏在耶穌前,把實情完全告訴了他。耶穌便向他說:「女兒,你的信德救了你,平安去吧!你的疾病必得痊愈。」他還說話的時候,有人從會堂長家裏來,說:「你的女兒死了,你還來煩勞師傅做什麼?」耶穌聽見所說的話,就給會堂長說:「不要怕,只管信。」除伯多祿、雅各伯和雅各伯的弟弟若望外,他沒有讓任何人跟他去。他們到了會堂長的家裏,耶穌看見群眾非常喧噪:有的哭泣,有的哀號,便進去,給他們說:「你們為什麼喧噪哭泣呢?小女孩並沒有死,只是睡著了!」他們都譏笑他。他卻把眾人趕出去,帶著小女孩的父親和母親,以及同他在一起的人,進了小女孩所在的地方。他拿起小女孩的手,對她說:「塔里塔,古木!」意思是:「女孩子,我命你起來!」那女孩子就立刻起來行走,原來她已十二歲了;他們都驚訝得目瞪口呆。耶穌卻嚴厲命令他們,不要叫任何人知道這事;又吩咐給女孩子吃的。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 5:21-43

21 And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him; and he was beside the sea. 22 Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Ja’irus by name; and seeing him, he fell at his feet, 23 and begged him, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live.” 24 And he went with him. And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. 25 And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. 27 She had heard the reports about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 28 For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I shall be made well.”29 And immediately the hemorrhage ceased; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30 And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone forth from him, immediately turned about in the crowd, and said, “Who touched my garments?” 31 And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, `Who touched me?'” 32 And he looked around to see who had done it. 33 But the woman, knowing what had been done to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”
35 While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” 36 But ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” 37 And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 38 When they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, he saw a tumult, and people weeping and wailing loudly. 39 And when he had entered, he said to them, “Why do you make a tumult and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping.” 40 And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside, and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41 Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Tal’itha cu’mi”; which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.”42 And immediately the girl got up and walked (she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. 43 And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.

谷5:21-43  (讀經 ── 撒下18:9-10, 14, 24-25, 30-19:3  詠86)

耶穌乘船渡回對岸,有大夥群眾聚集在他周圍;他遂留在海濱。那時,來了一個會堂長,名叫雅依洛,一見耶穌,就跪伏在他腳前,懇切求他說:「我的小女兒快要死了,請你來,給她覆手,叫她得救回生。」耶穌就同他去了。有一大群人跟隨著他,擁擠著他。那時,有一個婦人,患血漏已有十二年。她在許多醫生手裡,受了許多痛苦,花盡了自己所有的一切,不但沒有見效,反而病勢更加重了。她聽了有關耶穌的傳說,便來到人群中,從後邊摸了耶穌的衣裳,因為她心裡想:「我只要一摸他的衣裳,必然會好的。」她的血源立刻涸竭了,並且覺得身上的疾病也好了。耶穌立時覺得有一種能力從自己身上出去,就在人群中回過頭來說:「誰摸了我的衣裳?」他的門徒向他說:「你看!群眾四面擁擠著你,你還問:誰摸了我?」耶穌四周觀望,要看作這事的婦人。那婦人明知在自己身上所成的事,就戰戰兢兢地前來,跪伏在耶穌前,把實情完全告訴了他。耶穌便向他說:「女兒,你的信德救了你,平安去吧!你的疾病必得痊癒。」他還說話的時候,有人從會堂長家裡來,說:「你的女兒死了,你還來煩勞師傅做什麼?」
耶穌聽見所說的話,就給會堂長說:「不要怕,只管信。」除伯多祿、雅各伯和雅各伯的弟弟若望外,他沒有讓任何人跟他去。他們到了會堂長的家裡,耶穌看見群眾非常喧噪:有的哭泣,有的哀號,便進去,給他們說:「你們為什麼喧噪哭泣呢?小女孩並沒有死,只是睡著了!」他們都譏笑他。他卻把眾人趕出去,帶著小女孩的父親和母親,以及同他在一起的人,進了小女孩所在的地方。他拿起小女孩的手,對她說:「塔里塔,古木!」意思是:「女孩子,我命你起來!」那女孩子就立刻起來行走,原來她已十二歲了;他們都驚訝得目瞪口呆。耶穌卻嚴厲命令他們,不要叫任何人知道這事;又吩咐給女孩子吃的。

 

默 想

  • 經文的氣氛很熱鬧,在熙熙攘攘的街頭,人們簇擁著耶穌,他們都需要耶穌。
  • 耶穌也明白他們的需要,他看到人們的軟弱,他都一一回應他們的渴想,縱然他們的需要十分直接、實際,近乎功利。
  • 耶穌更明白他們的痛苦,他們的沮喪到了極點,他們的身心靈也在求得治癒。
  • 很明顯,這些人以信德來到耶穌面前,單純地渴求耶穌。
  • 我們都嘗試單純地渴求耶穌,以自己的信德,即使信德不足,就求基督補足。

神父講道 – 常年期第四週 (農曆年初四) (週一) (2014年2月3日)

恭讀聖路加福音 6:31-36

那時候耶穌向門徒說:「你們願意人怎樣待你們,也要怎樣待人。若你們愛那愛你們的,為你們還算什麼功德? 因為連罪人也愛那愛他們的人。你們善待那善待你們的,為你們還算什麼功德? 因為連罪人也這樣做。你們若借給那些有希望償還的,為你們還算什麼功德?就是罪人也借給罪人,為能如數收回。但是,你們當愛你們的仇人,善待他們;借出,不要再有所希望:如此,你們的賞報必定豐厚, 且要成為至高者的子女, 因為衪對待忘恩的和惡人,是仁慈的。你們應當慈悲,就像你們的父那樣慈悲。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:31-36

31 And as you wish that men would do to you, do so to them. 32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish. 36 Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.

—The Gospel of the Lord.
