聖亞加大 (貞女、殉道) (紀念)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 6:1-6

耶穌來到自己的家鄉,門徒也跟了他來。到了安息日,他便開始在會堂裡教訓人:眾人聽了,就驚訝說:「他這一切是從那裡來的呢?所賜給他的是什麼樣的智慧?怎麼藉他的手行出這樣的奇能?這人不就是那個木匠嗎?他不是瑪利亞的兒子,雅各伯、若瑟、猶達、西滿的兄弟嗎?他的姊妹不是也都在我們這裡嗎?」他們便對他起了反感。耶穌對他們說:「先知除了在自己的本鄉、本族和本家外,是沒有不受尊敬的。」耶穌在那裡不能行什麼奇能,只給少數的幾個病人覆手,治好了他們。他因他們的無信心而感到詫異,遂週遊四周各村施教去了。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 6:1-6

1 He went away from there and came to his own country; and his disciples followed him. 2 And on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue; and many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get all this? What is the wisdom given to him? What mighty works are wrought by his hands! 3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. 4 And Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.” 5 And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands upon a few sick people and healed them. 6 And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went about among the villages teaching.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷6:1-6  (讀經 ── 撒下24:2, 9-17  詠32)

耶穌來到自己的家鄉,門徒也跟了他來。到了安息日,他便開始在會堂裡教訓人:眾人聽了,就驚訝說:「他這一切是從哪裡來的呢?所賜給他的是什麼樣的智慧?怎麼藉他的手行出這樣的奇能?這人不就是那個木匠嗎?他不是瑪利亞的兒子,雅各伯、若瑟、猶達、西滿的兄弟嗎?他的姊妹不是也都在我們這裡嗎?」他們便對他起了反感。耶穌對他們說:「先知除了在自己的本鄉、本族和本家外,是沒有不受尊敬的。」耶穌在那裡不能行什麼奇能,只給少數的幾個病人覆手,治好了他們。他因他們的無信心而感到詫異,遂週遊四周各村施教去了。

 

默 想

  • 耶穌本鄉的人因為太「熟悉」他和他的家人,這種觀念成為他們的障礙,突破不了,促使他們變得沒有能力,以信德領受耶穌的真正身分。
  • 有趣的是,連耶穌也詫異於他們的無信,耶穌也沒有辦法,不能在他們中間發揮,可見信德是要互動的、雙向的。
  • 再一次,想像自己是耶穌本鄉的人,你會相信耶穌是默西亞嗎?
  • 不容易吧!需要一顆超越的眼光呢。這顆超越的眼光從何而得?最可能是持守一個開放的態度,不武斷的精神。
