神父講道 – 常年期第五週 (週六) (2014年2月15日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 8:1-10

在那些日子,有一大群人,沒有什麼吃的了。耶穌叫過門徒來,給他們說:「我很憐憫這批群眾,因為他們同我在一起已經三天,也沒有什麼可吃的了。我若遣散他們空著肚子各自回家,他們必要在路上暈倒;況且他們中還有些是從遠處來的。」門徒回答說:「在這荒野裏,人從那裏能得餅,使這些人吃飽呢?」耶穌問他們說:「你們有多少餅?」他們說:「七個。」耶穌就吩咐群眾坐在地上,拿起那七個餅來,祝謝了,擘開,遞給他的門徒,叫他們分開;他們就給給群眾分開。又有幾條小魚,耶穌祝福後,也吩咐把這些小魚分開。人都吃飽了,把剩下來的碎塊收集了七籃子。人數約有四千;然後耶穌遣散了他們,即刻同門徒上船,來到了達瑪奴達境內。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 8:1-10

1 In those days, when again a great crowd had gathered, and they had nothing to eat, he called his disciples to him, and said to them, 2 “I have compassion on the crowd, because they have been with me now three days, and have nothing to eat; 3 and if I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way; and some of them have come a long way.” 4 And his disciples answered him, “How can one feed these men with bread here in the desert?” 5 And he asked them, “How many loaves have you?” They said, “Seven.”6 And he commanded the crowd to sit down on the ground; and he took the seven loaves, and having given thanks he broke them and gave them to his disciples to set before the people; and they set them before the crowd. 7 And they had a few small fish; and having blessed them, he commanded that these also should be set before them. 8 And they ate, and were satisfied; and they took up the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full. 9 And there were about four thousand people.10 And he sent them away; and immediately he got into the boat with his disciples, and went to the district of Dalmanu’tha.

谷8:1-10  (讀經 ── 列上12:26-32;13:33-34  詠106)

在那些日子,有一大群人,沒有什麼吃的了。耶穌叫過門徒來,給他們說:「我很憐憫這批群眾,因為他們同我在一起已經三天,也沒有什麼可吃的了。我若遣散他們空著肚子各自回家,他們必要在路上暈倒;況且他們中還有些是從遠處來的。」門徒回答說:「在這荒野裡,人從哪裡能得餅,使這些人吃飽呢?」耶穌問他們說:「你們有多少餅?」他們說:「七個。」耶穌就吩咐群眾坐在地上,拿起那七個餅來,祝謝了,擘開,遞給他的門徒,叫他們分開;他們就給群眾分開。又有幾條小魚,耶穌祝福後,也吩咐把這些小魚分開。人都吃飽了,把剩下來的碎塊收集了七籃子。人數約有四千;然後耶穌遣散了他們,即刻同門徒上船,來到了達瑪奴達境內。

 

默 想

  • 增餅奇蹟有預告耶穌將建立聖體聖事的意思,他將自己呈獻,囑咐跟隨他的人,吃他的肉、飲他的血,他渴望與人合而為一。這在若望福音第六章強調得最多。
  • 經文中,門徒原本有點沮喪,在荒野裡怎能取來令眾人都吃飽的糧食?耶穌給他們新的希望,也讓他們經驗這奇蹟。
  • 仔細思量其中實況,難度幾千人群眾中,只有門徒的餅和魚?不如這樣理解:當眾人都願意將自己的食糧拿出來,共同分享,問題也獲得解決了。即是說,增餅奇蹟讓我們經驗到分享的真義和美麗之處。
  • 在分享的過程,也分享到信、望、愛。
