神父講道 – 常年期第三十週 (週一) (2014年10月27日)

恭讀聖路加福音 13:10-17

安息日,耶穌在一會堂裏施教。有一女人,病魔纏身已十八年了,傴僂著,完全不能直立。耶穌見了她,便叫她過來,對她說:「女人,你的病已消除了。」遂給她按手,她即刻就挺直起來,光榮天主。會堂長因氣惱耶穌在安息日治病,便對眾人說:「有六天應當工作,你們在這些日子裏可來治病,但不可在安息日這一天。」主回答他說:「假善人哪!你們每一個人在安息日,有不解下槽上的牛驢,牽去飲水的嗎?這個女人原是亞巴郎的女兒,她被撒殫纏住已經有十八年了,在安息日這一天,就不該解開她的束縛嗎?」當耶穌講這話時,所有敵對他的人,個個慚愧;所有民眾因他所行的種種輝煌事蹟,莫不歡喜。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 13:10-17

10 Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And there was a woman who had had a spirit of infirmity for eighteen years; she was bent over and could not fully straighten herself. 12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your infirmity.” 13 And he laid his hands upon her, and immediately she was made straight, and she praised God. 14 But the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, said to the people, “There are six days on which work ought to be done; come on those days and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day.” 15 Then the Lord answered him, “You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his ass from the manger, and lead it away to water it? 16 And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?” 17 As he said this, all his adversaries were put to shame; and all the people rejoiced at all the glorious things that were done by him.

路13:10-17  (弗4:32-5:8  詠1)

安息日,耶穌在一會堂裡施教。有一女人,病魔纏身已十八年了,傴僂著,完全不能直立。耶穌見了她,便叫她過來,對她說:「女人,你的病已消除了。」遂給她按手,她即刻就挺直起來,光榮天主。會堂長因氣惱耶穌在安息日治病,便對眾人說:「有六天應當工作,你們在這些日子裡可來治病,但不可在安息日這一天。」主回答他說:「假善人哪!你們每一個人在安息日,有不解下槽上的牛驢,牽去飲水的嗎?這個女人原是亞巴郎的女兒,她被撒殫纏住已經有十八年了,在安息日這一天,就不該解開她的束縛嗎?」
當耶穌講這話時,所有敵對他的人,個個慚愧;所有民眾因他所行的種種輝煌事蹟,莫不歡喜。

默 想

  • 即使在安息日,耶穌帶著熱情,急忙治好這名受病煎熬十八年的婦人,他甚至不惜準備遭會堂的人謾罵。
  • 很明顯,猶太人固守他們的律法到了僵化的地步,連身陷頑疾的人都不放過。
  • 我們有什麼是固守得過分了的?又或往往錯把「固守」認定為「堅守」,兩者有時只差一線。
  • 在堅守一些原則的同時,我們不要放棄自己那心的開放性,讓眼光保持遠大開闊,給自己給別人一個思考、想像、喘息的機會及空間吧。
