默主哥耶 : 神父講道 – 常年期第十一週 (週六) (2015年6月20日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 6:24-34

那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「沒有人能事奉兩個主人:他或是要恨這一個而愛那一個,或是重視這一個而輕視那一個。你們不能事奉天主而又事奉錢財。為此,我告訴你們:不要為你們的生命憂慮吃什麼?或喝什麼;也不要為你們的身體憂慮穿什麼。難道生命不是貴於食物,身體不是貴於衣服嗎?你們仰觀天空的飛鳥,它們不播種,也不收穫,也不在糧倉裏屯積,你們的天父還是養活牠們;你們不比牠們更貴重嗎?你們中誰能運用思慮,使自己的壽命增加一肘呢?關於衣服,你們又憂慮什麼?你們觀察一下田間的百合花怎樣生長:它們既不勞作,也不紡織;可是我告訴你們:連撒羅滿在他極盛的榮華時代所披戴的,也不如這些花中的一朵。田地裏的野草今天還在,明天就投在爐中,天主尚且這樣裝飾,信德薄弱的人哪!何況你們呢?所以,你們不要憂慮說:我們吃什麼?喝什麼?穿什麼?因為這一切都是外邦人所尋求的;你們的天父原曉得你們需要這一切。你們先該尋求天主的國和它的義德,這一切自會加給你們。所以你們不要為明天憂慮,因為明天有明天的憂慮:一天的苦足夠一天受的了。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 6:24-34

24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, `What shall we eat?’ or `What shall we drink?’ or `What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well. 34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

讀經一  約 38 :1, 8-11  詠 : 107
讀經二     格後5:14-17
主日福音 谷 4:35-41

有一天傍晚,耶穌對門徒說:「我們渡海,到對岸去吧!」門徒於是離開群眾,載耶穌走了;與耶穌一起的,還有其他小船。
忽然狂風大作,波浪打進船裡,以致船已積滿了水。耶穌卻在船尾,依枕而睡。門徒叫醒耶穌,給他說:「師父!我們要死了,你不管嗎?」耶穌醒來,叱喝了風,並向海說:「不要作聲,平靜吧!」風就停止了,於是風平浪靜。
耶穌對門徒說:「你們為什麼這樣膽怯?你們怎麼還沒有信德呢?」
門徒非常驚懼,彼此說:「這人到底是誰?連風和海也聽從他。」

默 想

  • 這人到底是誰?連風和海也聽從他。
  • 這人其實是歷史中最重要的人。因著祂的死亡復活,全人類的歷史都改寫了。
  • 我們知道,基督的死,令全人類不再在死亡的轄制下。
  • 我們人類現在好像面對著絕境,世界問題多好像不能解決。但因為基督,我們還是充滿盼望!
