聖猶思定 (殉道) (紀念)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 12:1-12

那時候,耶穌開始用比喻對司祭長、經師和長老們說:「有一個人培植了一個葡萄園,周圍圍上了籬笆,掘了一個榨酒池,築了一座守望台,把它租給園戶,就離開了本國。到了時節,他便打發一個僕人到園戶那裏,向園戶收取園中的果實;園戶卻抓住他,打了他,放他空手回去。主人又打發別的一個僕人到他們那裏去;他們打傷了他的頭,並且凌辱了他。主人又打發另一個,他們把他殺了;後又打發好些僕人去:有的他們打了,有的他們殺了。主人還有一個,即他的愛子;最後就打發他到他們那裏去,說:他們必會敬重我的兒子。那些園戶卻彼此說:這是繼承人,來!我們殺掉他,將來產業就歸我們了。於是,抓住他殺了,把他拋在葡萄園外。那麼,葡萄園的主人要怎樣處置呢?他必來除滅這些園戶,將葡萄園另租給別人。你們沒有讀過這段經文嗎?『匠人棄而不用的石頭,反而成了屋角的基石:那是上主的所作所為,在我們眼中神妙莫測。』」
他們明白這比喻是指他們說的,就想逮捕耶穌;但害怕群眾,於是離開他走了。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 12:1-12

1 And he began to speak to them in parables. “A man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a pit for the wine press, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country. 2 When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants, to get from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. 3 And they took him and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. 4 Again he sent to them another servant, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully. 5 And he sent another, and him they killed; and so with many others, some they beat and some they killed. 6 He had still one other, a beloved son; finally he sent him to them, saying, `They will respect my son.’ 7 But those tenants said to one another, `This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ 8 And they took him and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. 9 What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants, and give the vineyard to others. 10 Have you not read this scripture: `The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner; 11 this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?” 12 And they tried to arrest him, but feared the multitude, for they perceived that he had told the parable against them; so they left him and went away.

谷12:1-12  (多1:3;2:1-8  詠112)

耶穌開始用比喻對司祭長、經師和長老們說:「有一個人培植了一個葡萄園,周圍圍上了籬笆,掘了一個榨酒池,築了一座守望台,把它租給園戶,就離開了本國。到了時節,他便打發一個僕人到園戶那裡,向園戶收取園中的果實;園戶卻抓住他,打了他,放他空手回去。主人又打發別的一個僕人到他們那裡去;他們打傷了他的頭,並且凌辱了他。主人又打發另一個,他們把他殺了;後又打發好些僕人去:有的他們打了,有的他們殺了。主人還有一個,即他的愛子;最後就打發他到他們那裡去,說:他們必會敬重我的兒子。那些園戶卻彼此說:這是繼承人,來!我們殺掉他,將來產業就歸我們了。於是,抓住他殺了,把他拋在葡萄園外。那麼,葡萄園的主人要怎樣處置呢?他必來除滅這些園戶,將葡萄園另租給別人。你們沒有讀過這段經文嗎?『匠人棄而不用的石頭,反而成了屋角的基石:那是上主的所作所為,在我們眼中神妙莫測。』」
他們明白這比喻是指他們說的,就想逮捕耶穌;但害怕群眾,於是離開他走了。

 

默 想

  • 這塊匠人棄而不用的石頭,指的正是耶穌自己。這班經師、司祭長和長老們選擇拒絕耶穌,他們聽到耶穌這番言論,更是光火,他們一心要逮捕耶穌。
  • 惡園戶的連番行動,正反映他們要奪取葡萄園,據為己有,不惜殺掉主人的兒子。他們這種超越心,恍如創世紀中亞當與厄娃吃禁果的動機──超越天主。
  • 正是這種心態,經師、司祭長和長老們更加不會相信耶穌是默西亞,他們根本不去想這種可能性。

主日講道 – 天主聖三節 (節日) (2015年5月31日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 28:16-20

那時候,十一個門徒就往加里肋亞,到耶穌給他們所指定的山上。他們一看見耶穌,就朝拜了他,雖然有人還心中疑惑。
耶穌於是上前對他們說:「天上地下的一切權柄,都交給了我,所以,你們要去使萬民成為門徒,因父及子及聖神之名,給他們授洗,教訓他們遵守我所吩咐你們的一切。
「看!我同你們天天在一起,直到今世的終結。」

—上主的話。

(9th Sunday in Ordinary Time – The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 28:16-20

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.”

神父講道 – 常年期第八週 (週六) (2015年5月30日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 11:27-33

那時候,耶穌和他的門徒來到耶路撒冷。當耶穌在殿裏徘徊時,司祭長、經師和長老來到他跟前,對他說:「你憑什麼權柄作這些事?或者,是誰給了你權柄作這些事?」耶穌對他們說:「我也要問你們一句話,你們回答我,我就告訴你們:我憑什麼權柄作這事。若翰的洗禮是從天上來的,還是從人來的?答覆我吧!」他們心中思量說:「若我們說:是從天上來的,他就要說:那麼你們為什麼不信他?但我們怎敢說:是從人來的呢?」——他們是害怕民眾,因為眾人都以若翰實在是一位先知。他們便回答耶穌說:「我們不知道。」耶穌也對他們說:「我也不告訴你們:我憑什麼權柄作這些事。」

—上主的話。

(8th Week in Ordinary Time – Saturday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 11:27-33

27 And they came again to Jerusalem. And as he was walking in the temple, the chief priests and the scribes and the elders came to him, 28 and they said to him, “By what authority are you doing these things, or who gave you this authority to do them?” 29 Jesus said to them, “I will ask you a question; answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30 Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men? Answer me.” 31 And they argued with one another, “If we say, `From heaven,’ he will say, `Why then did you not believe him?’ 32 But shall we say, `From men’?” — they were afraid of the people, for all held that John was a real prophet. 33 So they answered Jesus, “We do not know.” And Jesus said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.”

讀經一  申 4:32-34, 39-40  詠 : 33
讀經二     羅8:14-17
主日福音 瑪 28:16-20

十一個門徒就往加里肋亞,到耶穌給他們所指定的山上。他們一看見耶穌,就朝拜了他,雖然有人還心中疑惑。
耶穌於是上前對他們說:「天上地下的一切權柄,都交給了我,所以,你們要去使萬民成為門徒,因父及子及聖神之名,給他們授洗,教訓他們遵守我所吩咐你們的一切。
「看!我同你們天天在一起,直到今世的終結。」

默 想

  • 要明白天主聖三,不要從聖三的結構入手,這是憑人的腦袋難以理解的。
  • 就看天主聖三之間的內在關係入手,祂們是一個共融有愛的關係。
  • 銘記耶穌這份承諾,祂與我們天天在一起,直到今世的終結。祂常在,有聖子,也突顯聖父與聖子的關係,彼此密不可分。
  • 而聖三也時刻邀請我們融匯祂們當中,使世界變得更美好。

谷11:27-33  (德51:17-27  詠19)

耶穌和他的門徒來到耶路撒冷。當耶穌在殿裡徘徊時,司祭長、經師和長老來到他跟前,對他說:「你憑什麼權柄作這些事?或者,是誰給了你權柄作這些事?」耶穌對他們說:「我也要問你們一句話,你們回答我,我就告訴你們:我憑什麼權柄作這事。若翰的洗禮是從天上來的,還是從人來的?答覆我吧!」他們心中思量說:「若我們說:是從天上來的,他就要說:那麼你們為什麼不信他?但我們怎敢說:是從人來的呢?」——他們是害怕民眾,因為眾人都以若翰實在是一位先知。他們便回答耶穌說:「我們不知道。」耶穌也對他們說:「我也不告訴你們:我憑什麼權柄作這些事。」

 

默 想

  • 耶穌和這些人的對答經常處於鬧哄哄的時候,他們一再質疑及挑戰耶穌,因為他們根本不願接受耶穌是默西亞,他們認為耶穌絕對沒有權柄作這一切事。
  • 耶穌的「答覆」,無非想表示,這些人關心的永遠是地上的爭辯,他們的內心,不曾留有一絲空間或可能性,接受耶穌是默西亞。
  • 因此,他們也走錯了路,越發要攻擊耶穌,迫耶穌走向不歸路。
  • 有時,我們的心會否如這些人一般的硬?接受不了耶穌?

神父講道 – 常年期第八週 (週五) (2015年5月29日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 11:11-26

那時候,耶穌進了耶路撒冷,到聖殿裏,周圍察看了一切,時辰已晚,遂同十二門徒出來,往伯達尼去了。
第二天,他們從伯達尼出來,耶穌餓了。他從遠處望見了一棵茂盛的無花果樹,就上前去,看是否在樹上可以找到什麼;及至走到那裏,除了葉子外,什麼也沒有找著,因為還不是無花果的時節。耶穌就開口對它說:「永遠再沒有人吃你的果子了!」他的門徒也都聽見了。
他們來到耶路撒冷。耶穌一進殿院,就開始把在殿院裏的買賣人趕出去,把錢莊的桌子和賣鴿子的凳子推翻,也不許人帶著器皿由殿院裏經過,教訓他們說:「經上不是記載:『我的殿宇將稱為萬民的祈禱之所』麼?你們竟把它作成了賊窩!」
司祭長和經師聽了,就設法要怎樣除掉他,卻又害怕他,因為全群眾對他的教訓都驚奇不已。到了晚上,他們就出了城。
早晨,他們從那裏經過時,看見那棵無花果樹連根都枯乾了。伯多祿想起來,就對耶穌說:「師傅!看,你所咒罵的無花果樹已枯乾了。」耶穌回答他們說:「你們對天主當有信德!我實在告訴你們:無論誰對這座山說:起來,投到海裏去!他心裏若不懷疑,反相信他說的必成就,就必給他成就。因此,我告訴你們:你們祈禱,不論求什麼,只要你們相信必得,必給你們成就。當你們立著祈禱時,若你們有什麼怨人的事,就寬恕吧!好叫你們在天之父,也寬恕你們的過犯。」

—上主的話。

(8th Week in Ordinary Time – Friday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 11:11-26

11 And he entered Jerusalem, and went into the temple; and when he had looked round at everything, as it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve. 12 On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. 13 And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 And he said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard it.
15 And they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons; 16 and he would not allow any one to carry anything through the temple. 17 And he taught, and said to them, “Is it not written, `My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a den of robbers.” 18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard it and sought a way to destroy him; for they feared him, because all the multitude was astonished at his teaching.
19 And when evening came they went out of the city. 20 As they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away to its roots. 21 And Peter remembered and said to him, “Master, look! The fig tree which you cursed has withered.” 22 And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, `Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any one; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your trespasses”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
