每日聖言靜思 常年期第二十二主日 8月30日

信仰生活互動坊、塔冷通心靈書舍

讀經一  申 4:1-2, 6-8  詠 : 15
讀經二     雅1:17-18, 21-22, 27
主日福音 谷 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23

法利塞人,及一些從耶路撒冷來的經師,聚集到耶穌面前。他們看見耶穌的幾個門徒,用不潔的手,就是用沒有洗過的手吃飯。
原來,法利塞人和所有猶太人,都拘守先人的傳統:若不仔細洗手,就不吃飯;從街市上回來,若不先沐浴,也不吃飯;還有其他許多按傳統,應拘守的事:如洗杯、洗壺、洗銅器等。
法利塞人和經師們就問耶穌說:「你的門徒,為什麼不遵守先人的傳統,竟然用不潔的手吃飯?」
耶穌對他們說:「依撒意亞論及你們這些假善人的預言真好,正如所記載的:『這民族用嘴唇尊敬我,他們的心,卻遠離我。他們恭敬我,也是虛假的,因為他們所講授的教義,是人的規律。』你們離棄天主的誡命,而只拘守人的傳統。」
耶穌又叫群眾來,對他們說:「你們都要聽我,且要明白!不是從人外面進入他裡面的,能使人污穢,
而是從人裡面出來的,才使人污穢。因為從裡面,從人心裡出來的,是惡念、邪淫、盜竊、兇殺、姦淫、
貪吝、毒辣、詭詐、放蕩、嫉妒、毀謗、驕傲、愚妄:這一切惡事,都是從裡面出來的,並且使人污穢。」

默 想

  • 洗手,當然是為了衛生。猶太人是很衛生的,所以歐洲黑死病的時代,猶太人比其他人更能免疫。
  • 但是,觀乎福音的記載,法利塞人似乎因著傳統,已忘記了洗手其實是為了衛生。他們似乎已把洗手變成傳統或是禮儀了。
  • 耶穌當然不是反對衛生,而是反對只做表面工夫。反對只用嘴唇不用心!
  • 天主教其實是一個最重視心靈的宗教,若我們的心沒有了,還剩下什麼?

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23

1 Now when the Pharisees gathered together to him, with some of the scribes, who had come from Jerusalem, 2 they saw that some of his disciples ate with hands defiled, that is, unwashed. 3 (For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, do not eat unless they wash their hands, observing the tradition of the elders; 4 and when they come from the market place, they do not eat unless they purify themselves; and there are many other traditions which they observe, the washing of cups and pots and vessels of bronze.) 5 And the Pharisees and the scribes asked him, “Why do your disciples not live according to the tradition of the elders, but eat with hands defiled?” 6 And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, `This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; 7 in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.’ 8 You leave the commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition of men.”
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.”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.
