神父講道 – 常年期第七週 (週一) (2014年2月24日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 9:14-29

那時候,耶穌同伯多祿、雅各伯和若望下山,來到門徒那裏,看見一大群人圍著他們,經師和他們正在辯論。全民眾一看見了耶穌,就都驚奇,立刻向前跑去問候他。耶穌問門徒說:「你們和他們辯論什麼?」人群中有一個回答說:「師傅,我帶了我的兒子來見你,他附著一個啞巴魔鬼;無論在那裏,魔鬼抓住他,就把他摔倒。他就口吐白沫,咬牙切齒,並且僵硬了。我曾請你的門徒把魔鬼逐出,他們卻不能。」耶穌開口向他們說:「哎!無信的世代!我與你們在一起要到幾時呢?我容忍你們要到幾時呢?帶他到我這裏來!」他們就把孩子領到耶穌跟前。魔鬼一見耶穌,立時使那孩子拘攣了一陣,那孩子便倒在地上,打滾吐沫。耶穌問他的父親說:「這事發生在他身上有多少時候了?」他回答說:「從小的時候;魔鬼屢次把他投到火裏或水裏,要害死他。但是,你若能做什麼,你就憐憫我們,幫助我們吧!」耶穌對他說:「『你若能』,為信的人,一切都是可能的!」小孩子的父親立刻喊說:「我信!請你補助我的無信吧!」耶穌看見群眾都跑過來,就叱責邪魔說:「又聾又啞的魔鬼,我命你從他身上出去!再不要進入他內!」魔鬼就喊叫起來,猛烈地使那孩子拘攣了一陣,就出去了;那孩子好像死了一樣,以致有許多人說:「他死了!」但是耶穌握住他的手,拉他起來,他就起來了。耶穌進到家裏,他的門徒私下問他說:「為什麼我們不能趕他出去?」耶穌對他們說:「這一類,非用祈禱【和禁食】,是不能趕出去的。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 9:14-29

14 And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd about them, and scribes arguing with them. 15 And immediately all the crowd, when they saw him, were greatly amazed, and ran up to him and greeted him. 16 And he asked them, “What are you discussing with them?” 17 And one of the crowd answered him, “Teacher, I brought my son to you, for he has a dumb spirit; 18 and wherever it seizes him, it dashes him down; and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid; and I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able.” 19 And he answered them, “O faithless generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to me.” 20 And they brought the boy to him; and when the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth.
21 And Jesus asked his father, “How long has he had this?” And he said, “From childhood. 22 And it has often cast him into the fire and into the water, to destroy him; but if you can do anything, have pity on us and help us.” 23 And Jesus said to him, “If you can! All things are possible to him who believes.” 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” 25 And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You dumb and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him, and never enter him again.” 26 And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse; so that most of them said, “He is dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. 28 And when he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?” 29 And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”

谷9:14-29  (讀經 ── 雅3:13-18  詠19)

耶穌同伯多祿、雅各伯和若望下山,來到門徒那裡,看見一大群人圍著他們,經師和他們正在辯論。全民眾一看見了耶穌,就都驚奇,立刻向前跑去問候他。耶穌問門徒說:「你們和他們辯論什麼?」人群中有一個回答說:「師傅,我帶了我的兒子來見你,他附著一個啞巴魔鬼;無論在那裡,魔鬼抓住他,就把他摔倒。他就口吐白沫,咬牙切齒,並且僵硬了。我曾請你的門徒把魔鬼逐出,他們卻不能。」耶穌開口向他們說:「哎!無信的世代!我與你們在一起要到幾時呢?我容忍你們要到幾時呢?帶他到我這裡來!」他們就把孩子領到耶穌跟前。魔鬼一見耶穌,立時使那孩子拘攣了一陣,那孩子便倒在地上,打滾吐沫。耶穌問他的父親說:「這事發生在他身上有多少時候了?」他回答說:「從小的時候;魔鬼屢次把他投到火裡或水裡,要害死他。但是,你若能做什麼,你就憐憫我們,幫助我們吧!」耶穌對他說:「『你若能』,為信的人,一切都是可能的!」小孩子的父親立刻喊說:「我信!請你補助我的無信吧!」耶穌看見群眾都跑過來,就叱責邪魔說:「又聾又啞的魔鬼,我命你從他身上出去!再不要進入他內!」魔鬼就喊叫起來,猛烈地使那孩子拘攣了一陣,就出去了;那孩子好像死了一樣,以致有許多人說:「他死了!」但是耶穌握住他的手,拉他起來,他就起來了。耶穌進到家裡,他的門徒私下問他說:「為什麼我們不能趕他出去?」耶穌對他們說:「這一類,非用祈禱【和禁食】,是不能趕出去的。」

 

默 想

  • 我們現今很多時祈禱,不是說「你若能」,我們不敢這樣不敬,但我們會說「你若願意」。
  • 我們這樣祈禱,因為知道自己有時的要求很過分。例如,你若願意,就給我中六合彩吧!當然這是誇張版。
  • 但耶穌又說,「為信的人,一切都是可能的」,那麼,我們如何平衡「信德」及「合理的祈求」這兩者?
  • 不如這樣吧,想像天父就真的是我的萬能父親,這父親會怎樣回應我的祈求?你若有能力,會令你兒子一夜致富嗎?這可能反而害了他!現實上有些二世祖就是這樣被害的。

主日講道 – 常年期第七主日 (2014年2月23日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 5:38-48

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們一向聽說過:『以眼還眼,以牙還牙。』我卻對你們說:不要抵抗惡人;而且,若有人掌擊你的右頰,你把另一面也轉給他。那要與你爭訟,拿你內衣的,你連外衣也讓給他。若有人強迫你走一千步,你就同他走兩千步。求你的,就給他;有人向你借貸,你不要拒絕。
「你們一向聽說過:『你應愛你的近人,恨你的仇人!』我卻對你們說:你們當愛你們的仇人,當為迫害你們的人祈禱,好使你們成為你們在天之父的子女,因為他使太陽上升,光照惡人,也光照善人;降雨給義人,也給不義的人。
「你們若只愛那愛你們的人,你們還有什麼賞報呢?稅吏不是也這樣做嗎?你們若只問候你們的弟兄,你們做了什麼特別的呢?外邦人不是也這樣做嗎?所以你們應當是成全的,如同你們的天父是成全的一樣。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 5:38-48

38 “You have heard that it was said, `An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I say to you, Do not resist one who is evil. But if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also; 40 and if any one would sue you and take your coat, let him have your cloak as well; 41 and if any one forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42 Give to him who begs from you, and do not refuse him who would borrow from you. 43 “You have heard that it was said, `You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you salute only your brethren, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

—The Gospel of the Lord.
