神父講道 – 常年期第五週 (週三) (2014年2月12日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 7:14-23

那時候,耶穌叫群眾來,對他們說:「你們都要聽我,且要明白!不是從人外面進入他內的,能污穢人,而是從人裏面出來的,才污穢人。凡有耳聽的,聽吧!耶穌離開群眾,回到家裏,他的門徒便問他這比喻的意義。耶穌就給他們說:「怎麼,連你們也不明白嗎?你們不曉得:凡從外面進入人內的,不能使人污穢,因為進不到他的心,但到他的肚腹內,再排洩到廁所裏去嗎?」他這是說一切食物都是潔淨的。耶穌又說:「凡從人裏面出來的,那才使人污穢,因為從裏面,從人心裏出來的是些惡念、邪淫、盜竊、兇殺、姦淫、貪吝、毒辣、詭詐、放蕩、嫉妒、毀謗、驕傲、愚妄:這一切的惡事,都是從內裏出來的,並且使人污穢。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 7:14-23

14 And he called the people to him again, and said to them, “Hear me, all of you, and understand: 15 there is nothing outside a man which by going into him can defile him; but the things which come out of a man are what defile him.” 17 And when he had entered the house, and left the people, his disciples asked him about the parable. 18 And he said to them, “Then are you also without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into a man from outside cannot defile him, 19 since it enters, not his heart but his stomach, and so passes on?” (Thus he declared all foods clean.) 20 And he said, “What comes out of a man is what defiles a man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, fornication, theft, murder, adultery, 22 coveting, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within, and they defile a man.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷7:14-23  (讀經 ── 列上10:1-10  詠37)

耶穌叫群眾來,對他們說:「你們都要聽我,且要明白!不是從人外面進入他內的,能污穢人,而是從人裡面出來的,才污穢人。凡有耳聽的,聽吧!耶穌離開群眾,回到家裡,他的門徒便問他這比喻的意義。耶穌就給他們說:「怎麼,連你們也不明白嗎?你們不曉得:凡從外面進入人內的,不能使人污穢,因為進不到他的心,但到他的肚腹內,再排泄到廁所裡去嗎?」他這是說一切食物都是潔淨的。耶穌又說:「凡從人裡面出來的,那才使人污穢,因為從裡面,從人心裡出來的是些惡念、邪淫、盜竊、兇殺、姦淫、貪吝、毒辣、詭詐、放蕩、嫉妒、毀謗、驕傲、愚妄:這一切的惡事,都是從內裡出來的,並且使人污穢。」

 

默 想

  • 我們的內在世界,像黑洞,也如深淵,連我們自己也有待了解、尋索。
  • 我們的內在世界,有好的,也有壞的。應該這樣說,原本是美好的,像一顆水晶球,只是日積月累,被厚厚的塵埃、油漬蓋著,那水晶球本來美麗的面貌,蕩然無存。
  • 憑著自己的意志,希望抹去塵埃和油漬,卻治標不治本。怎樣才可治本?靠的是什麼?
  • 掃除黑暗,唯獨靠著燃點第一支蠟燭,帶進光明,黑暗便瞬間消失。
  • 我們的內在世界,要往裡面燃點心中的亮光──基督的真光,祂帶我們走出黑暗,更認識自己裡面的不濟,以回應祂的愛,淨化自己。
