恭讀聖瑪竇福音 18:21-35

那時,伯多祿前來對耶穌說:「主啊!若我的弟兄得罪了我,我該寬恕他多少次?直到七次嗎?」耶穌對他說:「我不對你說:直到七次,而是到七十個七次。為此天國好比一個君王,要同他的僕人算賬。他開始算賬的時候,給他送來了一個欠他一萬「塔冷通」的,因他沒有可還的,主人就下令,要他把自己和妻子兒女,以及他所有的一切,都變賣來還債。那僕人就俯伏在地叩拜他說:主啊!容忍我吧!一切我都要還給你。那僕人的主人就動心把他釋放了,並且也赦免了他的債。但那僕人正出去時,遇見了一個欠他一百「德納」的同伴,他就抓住他,扼住他的喉嚨說:還你欠的債!他的同伴就俯伏在地哀求他說:容忍我吧!我必還給你。可是他不願意,且把他下在監裡,直到他還清了欠債。他的同伴見到所發生的事,非常悲憤,遂去把所發生的一切告訴了主人。於是主人把那僕人叫來,對他說:惡僕!因為你哀求了我,我赦免了你那一切的債;難道你不該憐憫你的同伴,如同我憐憫了你一樣嗎?他的主人大怒,遂把他交給刑役,直到他還清所欠的一切。如果你們不各自從心裡寬恕自己的弟兄,我的天父也必要這樣對待你們。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 18:21-35

Peter approached Jesus and asked him, “Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times. That is why the Kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who decided to settle accounts with his servants. When he began the accounting, a debtor was brought before him who owed him a huge amount. Since he had no way of paying it back, his master ordered him to be sold, along with his wife, his children, and all his property, in payment of the debt. At that, the servant fell down, did him homage, and said, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back in full.’ Moved with compassion the master of that servant let him go and forgave him the loan. When that servant had left, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a much smaller amount. He seized him and started to choke him, demanding, ‘Pay back what you owe.’ Falling to his knees, his fellow servant begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’ But he refused. Instead, he had him put in prison until he paid back the debt. Now when his fellow servants saw what had happened, they were deeply disturbed, and went to their master and reported the whole affair. His master summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to. Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant, as I had pity on you?’ Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers until he should pay back the whole debt. So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgives your brother from your heart.”

預報救主降生 (節日)

恭讀聖路加福音 1:26-38

到了第六個月,天使加俾額爾奉天主差遣,往加里肋亞一座名叫納匝肋的城去,到一位童貞女那裏,她已與達味家族中的一個名叫若瑟的男子訂了婚,童貞女的名字叫瑪利亞。天使進去向她說:「萬福!充滿恩寵者,上主與你同在!」【在女人中你是蒙祝福的。】她卻因這話驚惶不安,便思慮這樣的請安有什麼意思。天使對她說:「瑪利亞,不要害怕,因為你在天主前獲得了寵幸。看,你將懷孕生子,並要給他起名叫耶穌。他將是偉大的,並被稱為至高者的兒子,上主天主要把他祖先達味的御座賜給他。他要為王統治雅各伯家,直到永遠;他的王權沒有終結。」瑪利亞便向天使說:「這事怎能成就?因為我不認識男人。」天使答覆她說:「聖神要臨於你,至高者的能力要庇蔭你,因此,那要誕生的聖者,將稱為天主的兒子。且看,你的親戚依撒伯爾,她雖在老年,卻懷了男胎,本月已六個月了,她原是素稱不生育的,因為在天主前沒有不能的事。」瑪利亞說:「看!上主的婢女,願照你的話成就於我吧!」天使便離開她去了。

(Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:26-38

The angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary. And coming to her, he said, “Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.” But she was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be. Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father, and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his Kingdom there will be no end.” But Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I have no relations with a man?” And the angel said to her in reply, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. And behold, Elizabeth, your relative, has also conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren; for nothing will be impossible for God.” Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” Then the angel departed from her.

那時候,有幾個人,把有關加里肋亞人的事,即比拉多把他們的血,攙和於他們的祭品的事,報告給耶穌。
耶穌回答說:「你們以為這些加里肋亞人,比其他所有加里肋亞人更有罪,才遭此禍害嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。
「就如史羅亞塔倒下,壓死了十八個人,你們以為他們比耶路撒冷其他所有居民,罪債更大嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。」
耶穌講了這個比喻,說:「有一個人將一棵無花果樹,栽種在自己的葡萄園內。他來在樹上找果子,但沒有找到,便對園丁說:你看,我三年來,在這棵無花果樹上找果子,竟沒有找到。你砍掉它吧,為什麼讓它白佔土地?
「園丁回答說:主人,再留它這一年吧!等我在它周圍掘上土,加上糞;將來,如果結果子,便算了;不然的話,你就把它砍掉。」

(3rd Sunday of Lent)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 13:1-9

Some people told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices. Jesus said to them in reply, “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were greater sinners than all other Galileans? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did! Or those eighteen people who were killed when the tower at Siloam fell on them— do you think they were more guilty than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem?
By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!”
And he told them this parable: “There once was a person who had a fig tree planted in his orchard, and when he came in search of fruit on it but found none, he said to the gardener, ‘For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree but have found none. So cut it down. Why should it exhaust the soil?’ He said to him in reply, ‘Sir, leave it for this year also, and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it; it may bear fruit in the future. If not you can cut it down.'”

那時候,眾稅吏及罪人們都來接近耶穌,為聽他講道。法利塞人及經師們竊竊私議說:「這人交接罪人,又同他們吃飯。」耶穌遂對他們設了這個比喻說:「一個人有兩個兒子,那小的向父親說:父親,請把我應得的一份家產給我吧!父親遂把產業給他們分開了。過了不多幾天,小兒子把所有的一切都收拾起來,就往遠方去了。他在那裡荒淫度日,耗費他的資財。當他把所有的都揮霍盡了以後,那地方正遇著大荒年,他便開始窮困起來。他去投靠一個當地的居民;那人打發他到自己的莊田裡上去放豬。他恨不能拿豬吃的豆莢來果腹,可是沒有人給他。他反躬自問:我父親有多少傭工,都口糧豐盛,我在這裡反要餓死!我要起身到我父親那裡去,並且要給他說:父親,我得罪了天,也得罪了你。我不配再稱作你的兒子,把我當作你的一個傭工吧!他便起身到他父親那裡去了。他離的還遠的時候,他父親就看見了他,動了憐憫的心,跑上前去,撲到他的脖子上,熱情地親吻他。兒子向他說:父親!我得罪了天,也得罪了你,我不配再稱作你的兒子了!父親卻吩咐自己的僕人說:你們快拿出上等的袍子來給他穿上;把戒指戴在他手上,給他腳上穿上鞋,再把那隻肥牛犢牽來宰了,我們應吃喝歡宴,因為我這個兒子是死而復生,失而復得了;他們就歡宴起來。那時,他的長子正在田地裡。當他回來快到家的時候,聽見有奏樂及歌舞的歡聲,遂叫一個僕人過來,問他這是什麼事。僕人向他說:你弟弟回來了。你父親因為見他無恙歸來,便為他宰了那隻肥牛犢。長子就生氣不肯進去,他父親遂出來勸解他。他回答父親說:你看,這些年來我服侍你,從未違背過你的命令,而你從未給過我一隻小山羊,讓我同我的朋友們歡宴;但你這個兒子同娼妓們耗盡了你的財產,他一回來,你倒為他宰了那隻肥牛犢。父親給他說:孩子!你常同我在一起,凡我所有的,都是你的;只因為你這個弟弟死而復生,失而復得,應當歡宴喜樂!」

(2nd Week of Lent – Saturday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 15:1-3,11-32

Tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Jesus, but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” So to them Jesus addressed this parable. “A man had two sons, and the younger son said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of your estate that should come to me.’ So the father divided the property between them. After a few days, the younger son collected all his belongings and set off to a distant country where he squandered his inheritance on a life of dissipation. When he had freely spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he found himself in dire need. So he hired himself out to one of the local citizens who sent him to his farm to tend the swine. And he longed to eat his fill of the pods on which the swine fed, but nobody gave him any. Coming to his senses he thought, ‘How many of my father’s hired workers have more than enough food to eat, but here am I, dying from hunger. I shall get up and go to my father and I shall say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as you would treat one of your hired workers.”‘ So he got up and went back to his father. While he was still a long way off, his father caught sight of him, and was filled with compassion. He ran to his son, embraced him and kissed him. His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son.’ But his father ordered his servants, ‘Quickly, bring the finest robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Take the fattened calf and slaughter it. Then let us celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found.’ Then the celebration began. Now the older son had been out in the field and, on his way back, as he neared the house, he heard the sound of music and dancing. He called one of the servants and asked what this might mean. The servant said to him, ‘Your brother has returned and your father has slaughtered the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’ He became angry, and when he refused to enter the house, his father came out and pleaded with him. He said to his father in reply, ‘Look, all these years I served you and not once did I disobey your orders; yet you never gave me even a young goat to feast on with my friends. But when your son returns who swallowed up your property with prostitutes, for him you slaughter the fattened calf.’ He said to him, ‘My son, you are here with me always; everything I have is yours. But now we must celebrate and rejoice, because your brother was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.'”

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 14:1-6

Jesus said to his disciple, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be. Where [I] am going you know the way.”
Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?”
Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth* and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

那時候,耶穌對司祭長和民間長老說:「你們再聽一個比喻吧!從前有一個家主,培植了一個葡萄園,周圍圍上籬笆,園內挖了一個榨酒池,築了一個守望台,把它租給園戶,就離開了本國。快到收果子的時節,他打發僕人到園戶那裡去收果子。園戶拿住了僕人,將一個鞭打了,將一個殺了,將另一個用石頭砸死了。他再打發一些僕人去,人數比以前還多;園戶也一樣對待了他們,最後他打發自己的兒子到他們那裡去,說:他們會敬重我的兒子。但園戶一看見是兒子,就彼此說:這是繼承人;來!我們殺掉他,我們就能得到他的產業。於是他們拿住他,把他推到園外殺了。那麼,當葡萄園的主人來時,他要怎樣處置那些園戶呢?」他們回答說:「要凶惡地消滅那些凶惡的人,把葡萄園另租給按時給他繳納出產的園戶。」耶穌對他們說:「『匠人棄而不用的石頭,反而成了屋角的基石;那是上主的所行所為,在我們眼中,神妙莫測!』的這句經文,你們沒有讀過嗎?為此,我對你們說,天主的國,必由你們中奪去,而交給結果子的外邦人。」

(2nd Week of Lent – Friday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 21:33-43,45-46

Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders of the people: “Hear another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it, dug a wine press in it, and built a tower. Then he leased it to tenants and went on a journey. When vintage time drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants to obtain his produce. But the tenants seized the servants and one they beat, another they killed, and a third they stoned. Again he sent other servants, more numerous than the first ones, but they treated them in the same way. Finally, he sent his son to them, thinking, ‘They will respect my son.’ But when the tenants saw the son, they said to one another, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and acquire his inheritance.’ They seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What will the owner of the vineyard do to those tenants when he comes?” They answered him, AHe will put those wretched men to a wretched death and lease his vineyard to other tenants who will give him the produce at the proper times.” Jesus said to them, ADid you never read in the Scriptures:
The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; by the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes?
Therefore, I say to you, the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit.” When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they knew that he was speaking about them. And although they were attempting to arrest him, they feared the crowds, for they regarded him as a prophet.

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 16:19-31

Jesus said to the Pharisees: “There was a rich man who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day. And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores. When the poor man died, he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried, and from the netherworld, where he was in torment, he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he cried out, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me. Send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering torment in these flames.’ Abraham replied, ‘My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented. Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go from our side to yours or from your side to ours.’ He said, ‘Then I beg you, father, send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they too come to this place of torment.’ But Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen to them.’ He said, ‘Oh no, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’ Then Abraham said, ‘If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.'”

那時,載伯德兒子的母親,同自己的兒子前來,叩拜耶穌,請求他一件事。耶穌對她說:「你要什麼?」她回答說:「你叫我的這兩個兒子,在你王國內,一個坐在你的右邊,一個坐在你的左邊。」耶穌回答說:「你們不知道你們所求的是什麼,你們能飲我將要飲的爵嗎?」他們說:「我們能。」耶穌對他們說:「我的爵你們固然要飲;但坐在右邊或左邊,不是我可以給的,而是我父給誰預備了,就給誰。」那十個聽了,就惱怒他們兩兄弟。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 20:17-28

As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the Twelve disciples aside by themselves, and said to them on the way, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death, and hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.”
Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Jesus with her sons and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something. He said to her, “What do you wish?” She answered him, “Command that these two sons of mine sit, one at your right and the other at your left, in your kingdom.” Jesus said in reply, “You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink?” They said to him, “We can.” He replied, “My chalice you will indeed drink, but to sit at my right and at my left, this is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.” When the ten heard this, they became indignant at the two brothers. But Jesus summoned them and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and the great ones make their authority over them felt. But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave. Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

(Solemnity of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 1:16,18-21,24

Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ. Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly. Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.
