神父講道 – 常年期第二週 (週二) (2015年1月20日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 2:23-28

有一次,正當安息日,耶穌從麥田裏路過,他的門徒在行路時掐食起麥穗來。法利塞人向耶穌說:「你看!他們為什麼做安息日不許做的事?」耶穌對法利塞人說:「你們從未讀過:達味在急迫中和同他一起的人,在饑餓時所作的事嗎?當厄貝雅塔爾作大司祭時,達味怎樣進了天主的殿,吃了除司祭外,誰也不許吃的供餅,並且還給了同他一起的人?」耶穌又對他們說:「安息日是為人立的,並不是人為了安息日;所以,人子也是安息日的主。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 2:23-28

23 One Sabbath he was going through the grain fields; and as they made their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain. 24 And the Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the Sabbath?” 25 And he said to them, “Have you never read what David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and those who were with him: 26 how he entered the house of God, when Abiathar was high priest, and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those who were with him?” 27 And he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath; 28 so the Son of man is lord even of the Sabbath.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷2:23-28  (希6:10-20  詠111)

有一次,正當安息日,耶穌從麥田裡路過,他的門徒在行路時掐食起麥穗來。法利塞人向耶穌說:「你看!他們為什麼做安息日不許做的事?」耶穌對法利塞人說:「你們從未讀過:達味在急迫中和同他一起的人,在饑餓時所作的事嗎?當厄貝雅塔爾作大司祭時,達味怎樣進了天主的殿,吃了除司祭外,誰也不許吃的供餅,並且還給了同他一起的人?」耶穌又對他們說:「安息日是為人立的,並不是人為了安息日;所以,人子也是安息日的主。」

 

默 想

  • 耶穌時代,法利塞人最緊張安息日,但可惜他們只重規條,失卻安息日的內在意義。
  • 但耶穌卻非常重視內在的意義!因為外表可以是假的。而內心,卻必定是真的!
  • 耶穌當然關心我們的虔誠是真或假的。如此類推,我們今天有多少規條其實是外在的?
  • 我們又有多關心我們的內心世界呢?
