神父講道 – 常年期第五週 (週二) (2014年2月11日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 7:1-13

那時候,法利塞人和一些從耶路撒冷來的經師,聚集到耶穌跟前。他們曾看見他的幾個門徒用不潔的手,就是用沒有洗過的手吃飯——原來,法利塞人和所有的猶太人,都拘守先人的傳授:若不仔細洗手,就不吃飯;從街市上回來,若不先沐浴,也不吃飯;還有其他許多傳授應拘守的事:如洗杯、洗壺、洗銅器等——法利塞人和經師們就問耶穌說:「你的門徒為什麼不遵守先人的傳授,而用不潔的手吃飯?」耶穌對他們說:「依撒意亞論你們這些假善人預言的真好,正如所記載的:『這民族用嘴唇尊敬我,他們的心卻遠離我。他們恭敬我,也是虛假的,因為他們所講授的教義,是人的規律。』你們離棄天主的誡命,而只拘守人的傳授。」又向他們說:「真好啊!你們為拘守你們的傳授,竟廢除了天主的誡命。梅瑟原說過:『你該孝敬你的父親及母親。』又說:『咒罵了父親或母親的,應處以死刑。』你們卻說,人若對父親或母親說:我所能供養你的,已成了『科爾班』,即『獻儀』,那麼就准許那人不必再為父母做什麼了:這樣你們便為了你們所傳授的遺教,廢棄了天主的話;並且你們還行了許多其他諸如此類的事。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 7:1-13

1 Now when the Pharisees gathered together to him, with some of the scribes, who had come from Jerusalem, 2 they saw that some of his disciples ate with hands defiled, that is, unwashed. 3 (For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, do not eat unless they wash their hands, observing the tradition of the elders; 4 and when they come from the market place, they do not eat unless they purify themselves; and there are many other traditions which they observe, the washing of cups and pots and vessels of bronze.) 5 And the Pharisees and the scribes asked him, “Why do your disciples not live according to the tradition of the elders, but eat with hands defiled?” 6 And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, `This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; 7 in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.’ 8 You leave the commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition of men.” 9 And he said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God, in order to keep your tradition! 10 For Moses said, `Honor your father and your mother’; and, `He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him surely die’; 11 but you say, `If a man tells his father or his mother, What you would have gained from me is Corban’ (that is, given to God) — 12 then you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or mother, 13 thus making void the word of God through your tradition which you hand on. And many such things you do.”

谷7:1-13  (讀經 ── 列上8:22-23, 27-30  詠84)

法利塞人和一些從耶路撒冷來的經師,聚集到耶穌跟前。他們曾看見他的幾個門徒用不潔的手,就是用沒有洗過的手吃飯——原來,法利塞人和所有的猶太人,都拘守先人的傳授:若不仔細洗手,就不吃飯;從街市上回來,若不先沐浴,也不吃飯;還有其他許多傳授應拘守的事:如洗杯、洗壺、洗銅器等——法利塞人和經師們就問耶穌說:「你的門徒為什麼不遵守先人的傳授,而用不潔的手吃飯?」耶穌對他們說:「依撒意亞論你們這些假善人預言的真好,正如所記載的:『這民族用嘴唇尊敬我,他們的心卻遠離我。他們恭敬我,也是虛假的,因為他們所講授的教義,是人的規律。』你們離棄天主的誡命,而只拘守人的傳授。」又向他們說:「真好啊!你們為拘守你們的傳授,竟廢除了天主的誡命。梅瑟原說過:『你該孝敬你的父親及母親。』又說:『咒罵了父親或母親的,應處以死刑。』你們卻說,人若對父親或母親說:我所能供養你的,已成了『科爾班』,即『獻儀』,那麼就准許那人不必再為父母做什麼了:這樣你們便為了你們所傳授的遺教,廢棄了天主的話;並且你們還行了許多其他諸如此類的事。」

 

默 想

  • 信仰不應只是一套教義或學說,信仰要得到滿全,必須與生活掛鉤。
  • 生活中充滿一個又一個的決定或選擇,配合實踐的行動;人的行動也反映他內心的所思所想,反映他的動機。
  • 只說不做的信仰,容易流於偽善,天主永遠看的,是人的內心。
  • 說出來十分容易,行動出來才是挑戰。
  • 我們其實都想做到自己心中所想的,但總是由不得自己,一如聖保祿在羅馬書第七章所描述的掙扎中。
  • 上主明白我們的掙扎,甚至接納我們的掙扎,我們也將自己的無奈、掙扎、小信呈奉,求主赦免,求主補足。每一次真心求憐恤的禱文,也是馨香的祭品。一次又一次,盼求心中所想的,與真實做到的,彼此間距離越加拉近。

聖思嘉 (貞女) (紀念)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 6:53-56

那時,耶穌和他的門徒渡過了海,來到革乃撒勒,就靠了岸。他們剛一下船,人立刻認出他來,便跑遍那全地域。開始用床把有病的人,抬到聽說耶穌所在的地方去。凡耶穌所到的地方,或村莊,或城市,或鄉間,人都把患病的人放在街道上,求耶穌容許他們,至少摸摸他的衣邊;凡摸到他的,就都痊愈了。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 6:53-56

53 And when they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennes’aret, and moored to the shore. 54 And when they got out of the boat, immediately the people recognized him, 55 and ran about the whole neighborhood and began to bring sick people on their pallets to any place where they heard he was. 56 And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or country, they laid the sick in the market places, and besought him that they might touch even the fringe of his garment; and as many as touched it were made well.
