神父講道 – 常年期第十七週 (週一) (2015年7月27日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 13:31-35

那時,耶穌給群眾設一個比喻說:「天國好像一粒芥子,人把它撒在自己的田裏。它固然是各樣種子裏最小的,但當它長起來,卻比各種蔬菜都大,竟成了樹,什至天上的飛鳥也飛來,在它枝上棲息。」
他又給他們講了一個比喻:「天國好像酵母,女人取來藏在三斗麵裏,直到全部發了酵。」
耶穌用比喻給群眾講解了這一切,不用比喻就不給他們講什麼;這樣應驗了先知所說的話:「我要開口說比喻,要說出由創世以來隱密的事。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:31-35

31 Another parable he put before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field; 32 it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” 33 He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.” 34 All this Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed he said nothing to them without a parable. 35 This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.”

瑪13:31-35  (出32:15-24, 30-34  詠106)

耶穌給群眾設一個比喻說:「天國好像一粒芥子,人把它撒在自己的田裡。它固然是各樣種子裡最小的,但當它長起來,卻比各種蔬菜都大,竟成了樹,什至天上的飛鳥也飛來,在它枝上棲息。」
他又給他們講了一個比喻:「天國好像酵母,女人取來藏在三斗麵裡,直到全部發了酵。」
耶穌用比喻給群眾講解了這一切,不用比喻就不給他們講什麼;這樣應驗了先知所說的話:「我要開口說比喻,要說出由創世以來隱密的事。」

 

默 想

  • 天國只能用比喻來講,不能真實的描述,因為任何語言都描述不了那奇妙的境界。
  • 若天國真的是一個地方,有形有體,倒容易說出來,但明顯地,天國不是這種東西。
  • 沒有可能有人知道天國是怎樣,所以教會也不說。
  • 天國這樣難以說明,可能是因為我們是人,有身體的限制。而當我們復活時,取得的是不一樣的身體,到時就可能容易明白了。

主日講道 – 常年期第十七主日 (2015年7月26日)

恭讀聖若望福音 6:1-15

那時候,耶穌渡過加里肋亞海,即提庇黎雅海,到對岸去。大批群眾,因為看見耶穌在患病者身上,所行的神蹟,都跟隨著他。耶穌上了山,和他的門徒一起,坐在那裡。那時,猶太人的慶節,即逾越節,已臨近了。
耶穌舉目,看見大批群眾來到他面前,就對斐理伯說:「我們從那裡買餅給這些人吃呢?」他說這話,是為試探斐理伯;他自己原知道要做什麼。
斐理伯回答說:「就是二百塊『德納』的餅,也不夠每人分得一小塊。」
有一個門徒,即西滿伯多祿的哥哥安德肋,說:「這裡有一個兒童,他有五個大麥餅和兩條魚;但是,為這麼多的人,這算得什麼?」
耶穌說:「你們叫眾人坐下吧!」 在那地方有許多青草,於是眾人便坐下,男人約有五千。
耶穌就拿起餅,祝謝後,分給坐下的人;同樣,也把魚分了;讓眾人任意吃。他們吃飽以後,耶穌向門徒說:「把剩下的碎塊,收集起來,免得糟蹋。」他們就把眾人吃飽後,所剩下的五個大麥餅的碎塊,收集起來,裝滿了十二筐。
眾人見了耶穌所行的神蹟,就說:「這人確實就是那要來到世界上的先知。」
耶穌看出他們要來強迫他,立他為王,就獨自又退避到山裡。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 6:1-15

1 After this Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias. 2 And a multitude followed him, because they saw the signs which he did on those who were diseased. 3 Jesus went up on the mountain, and there sat down with his disciples. 4 Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand. 5 Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a multitude was coming to him, Jesus said to Philip, “How are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?” 6 This he said to test him, for he himself knew what he would do. 7 Philip answered him, “Two hundred denarii would not buy enough bread for each of them to get a little.” 8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him, 9 “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what are they among so many?” 10 Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place; so the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, “Gather up the fragments left over, that nothing may be lost.” 13 So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves, left by those who had eaten. 14 When the people saw the sign which he had done, they said, “This is indeed the prophet who is to come into the world!” 15 Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself.
