神父講道 – 聖亞豐索 (主教、聖師) (紀念) (週一) (2016年8月1日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 14:13-21

耶穌一聽若翰的死訊,就從那裏上船,私下退到荒野地方;群眾聽說了,就從各城裏步行跟了他去。他一下船,看見一大夥群眾,便對他動了憐憫的心,治好了他們的病人。到了傍晚,門徒到他跟前說:「這地方是荒野,時候已不早了,請你遣散群眾吧!叫他們各自到村莊去買食物。」耶穌卻對他們說:「他們不必去,你們給他們吃的吧!」門徒對他說:「我們這裏什麼也沒有,只有五個餅和兩條魚。」耶穌說:「你們給我拿到這裏來!」遂又吩咐群眾坐在草地上,然後拿起那五個餅和兩條魚,望天祝福了;把餅擘開,遞給門徒,門徒再分給群眾。眾人吃了,也都飽了;然後他們把剩餘的碎塊收了滿滿十二籃。吃的人數,除了婦女和小孩子外,約有五千。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 14:13-21

13 Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a lonely place apart. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. 14 As he went ashore he saw a great throng; and he had compassion on them, and healed their sick. 15 When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a lonely place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” 16 Jesus said, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” 17 They said to him, “We have only five loaves here and two fish.” 18 And he said, “Bring them here to me.” 19 Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass; and taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 20 And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over. 21 And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

聖亞豐索  瑪14:13-21  (耶28:1-17  詠119)

耶穌一聽若翰的死訊,就從那裡上船,私下退到荒野地方;群眾聽說了,就從各城裡步行跟了他去。他一下船,看見一大夥群眾,便對他動了憐憫的心,治好了他們的病人。到了傍晚,門徒到他跟前說:「這地方是荒野,時候已不早了,請你遣散群眾吧!叫他們各自到村莊去買食物。」耶穌卻對他們說:「他們不必去,你們給他們吃的吧!」門徒對他說:「我們這裡什麼也沒有,只有五個餅和兩條魚。」耶穌說:「你們給我拿到這裡來!」遂又吩咐群眾坐在草地上,然後拿起那五個餅和兩條魚,望天祝福了;把餅擘開,遞給門徒,門徒再分給群眾。眾人吃了,也都飽了;然後他們把剩餘的碎塊收了滿滿十二籃。吃的人數,除了婦女和小孩子外,約有五千。

 

默 想

  • 在生命中我們究竟追尋什麼?為了得到我們所渴求的而跟隨耶穌?
  • 若然所求不得,我們又應何去何從?
  • 生活中我們有否因著憐憫而幫助有需要的人?給予他們真正的需要?
  • 抑或我們只是因著獲得讚許而裝作憐憫?

讀經一  訓1:2;2:21-23  詠:90
讀經二  哥3:1-5, 9-11
主日福音 路12:13-21

人群中有一個人,向耶穌說:「師父,請吩咐我的兄弟,與我分家吧!」耶穌對他說:「人哪,誰派我做你們的判官,為你們分家呢?」於是,耶穌對群眾說:「你們要謹慎,躲避一切貪婪,因為一個人縱然富裕,他的生命並不在於他的資產。」耶穌對群眾講了一個比喻,說:「有一個富翁,他的田地出產豐富。他心裡想:我可怎麼辦呢?因為我已沒有地方,收藏我的物產。於是,他說:我要這樣做:我要拆毀我的倉庫,另建更大的,這樣就能夠收藏我的一切穀物和財產了。然後,我要對我的靈魂說:靈魂哪!你存有大量財物,足夠多年之用,你休息吧!吃喝宴樂吧!天主卻對他說:糊塗人哪!今夜就要收回你的靈魂,你所儲備的,將歸誰呢?那些只為自己累積財產,而不在天主前致富的人,也是如此。」

默 想

  • 我們一直做了糊塗人嗎?我們試過覺醒過來嗎?
  • 怎樣才是覺醒的生命?我們又為哪事哪人作出不夠理性的決定?
  • 苦心經營,積蓄物質在地上,還是累積心靈食糧?每天總容易變得營營役役,如何在這種有血有肉的境地,超越自己,尋得突破?

那時候,人群中有一個人,向耶穌說:「師父,請吩咐我的兄弟,與我分家吧!」
耶穌對他說:「人哪,誰派我做你們的判官,為你們分家呢?」
於是,耶穌對群眾說:「你們要謹慎,躲避一切貪婪,因為一個人縱然富裕,他的生命並不在於他的資產。」
耶穌對群眾講了一個比喻,說:「有一個富翁,他的田地出產豐富。他心裡想:我可怎麼辦呢?因為我已沒有地方,收藏我的物產。於是,他說:我要這樣做:我要拆毀我的倉庫,另建更大的,這樣就能夠收藏我的一切穀物和財產了。然後,我要對我的靈魂說:靈魂哪!你存有大量財物,足夠多年之用,你休息吧!吃喝宴樂吧!

「那些只為自己累積財產,而不在天主前致富的人,也是如此。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:13-21

13 One of the multitude said to him, “Teacher, bid my brother divide the inheritance with me.” 14 But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or divider over you?” 15 And he said to them, “Take heed, and beware of all covetousness; for a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” 16 And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully; 17 and he thought to himself, `What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 18 And he said, `I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.’ 20 But God said to him, `Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ 21 So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

神父講道 – 常年期第十七週 (週六) (2016年7月30日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 14:1-12

那時,分封侯黑落德聽到耶穌的名聲,就對他的臣僕說:「這是洗者若翰,他由死者中復活了;為此,這些奇能才在他身上運行。」原來,黑落德為了他兄弟斐理伯的妻子黑落狄雅的緣故,逮捕了若翰,把他囚在監裏,因為若翰曾給他說:「你不可佔有這個女人!」黑落德本有意殺他,但害怕群眾,因為他們都以若翰為先知。
到了黑落德的生日,黑落狄雅的女兒在席間跳舞,中悅了黑落德。為此,黑落德發誓許下,她無論求什麼,都要給她,她受了她母親的唆使後,就說:「請就地把若翰的頭放在盤子裏給我!」王十分憂鬱,但為了誓言和同席的人,就下令給她。遂差人在監裏斬了若翰的頭,把頭放在盤子裏拿來,給了女孩;女孩便拿去給了她的母親。若翰的門徒前來,領了屍身,埋葬了,然後去報告給耶穌。

(17th Week in Ordinary Time – Saturday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 14:1-12

1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard about the fame of Jesus; 2 and he said to his servants, “This is John the Baptist, he has been raised from the dead; that is why these powers are at work in him.” 3 For Herod had seized John and bound him and put him in prison, for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife; 4 because John said to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.” 5 And though he wanted to put him to death, he feared the people, because they held him to be a prophet. 6 But when Herod’s birthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced before the company, and pleased Herod, 7 so that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. 8 Prompted by her mother, she said, “Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a platter.” 9 And the king was sorry; but because of his oaths and his guests he commanded it to be given; 10 he sent and had John beheaded in the prison, 11 and his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother. 12 And his disciples came and took the body and buried it; and they went and told Jesus.

瑪14:1-12  (耶26:11-16, 24  詠69)

分封侯黑落德聽到耶穌的名聲,就對他的臣僕說:「這是洗者若翰,他由死者中復活了;為此,這些奇能才在他身上運行。」原來,黑落德為了他兄弟斐理伯的妻子黑落狄雅的緣故,逮捕了若翰,把他囚在監裡,因為若翰曾給他說:「你不可佔有這個女人!」黑落德本有意殺他,但害怕群眾,因為他們都以若翰為先知。
到了黑落德的生日,黑落狄雅的女兒在席間跳舞,中悅了黑落德。為此,黑落德發誓許下,她無論求什麼,都要給她,她受了她母親的唆使後,就說:「請就地把若翰的頭放在盤子裡給我!」王十分憂鬱,但為了誓言和同席的人,就下令給她。遂差人在監裡斬了若翰的頭,把頭放在盤子裡拿來,給了女孩;女孩便拿去給了她的母親。若翰的門徒前來,領了屍身,埋葬了,然後去報告給耶穌。

 

默 想

  • 洗者若翰的遭遇令人悲痛,他就這樣作出殉道犠牲,生命純粹這樣向人展示,留下令人銘記的足印。
  • 想起若翰,只讓我們想到「純粹」。一個人的生命真的單純為了耶穌作準備,平實無華,但那光亮隱現。
  • 我們可以如何向洗者若翰效法?似遠還近,但堪為我們思考咀嚼。

神父講道 – 聖瑪爾大 (紀念) (週五) (2016年7月29日)

聖瑪爾大 (紀念)

恭讀聖若望福音 11:19-27

那時候,有許多猶太人來到瑪爾大和瑪利亞那裏,為她們兄弟的死而安慰她們。瑪爾大一聽說耶穌來了,便去迎接他;瑪利亞仍坐在家裏。瑪爾大對耶穌說:「若是你在這裏,我的兄弟決不會死!就是現在,我也知道:你無論向天主求什麼,天主必要賜給你。」耶穌對她說:「你的兄弟必定要復活。」瑪爾大說:「我知道在末日復活時,他必要復活。」耶穌對她說:「我就是復活,就是生命;信從我的,即使死了,仍要活著;凡活著而信從我的人,必永遠不死。你信麼?」她回答說:「是的,主,我信你是默西亞,天主子,要來到世界上的那一位。」

(Memorial of Saint Martha)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 11:19-27

19 many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother. 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, while Mary sat in the house. 21 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 And even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, he who is coming into the world.”

聖瑪爾大  路10:38-42  (若一4:7-16  詠34)

耶穌進了一個村莊。有一個名叫瑪爾大的女人,把耶穌接到家中。她有一個妹妹,名叫瑪利亞,坐在主的腳前聽他講話。瑪爾大為伺候耶穌,忙碌不已,便上前來說:「主!我的妹妹丟下我一個人伺候,你不介意嗎?請叫她來幫助我吧!」主回答她說:「瑪爾大,瑪爾大!你為了許多事操心忙碌,其實需要的唯有一件。瑪利亞選擇了更好的一份,是不能從她奪去的。」

 

默 想

  • 今天是聖瑪爾大的瞻禮。瑪爾大被耶穌叮囑甚至教訓,不因為她忙碌,為了打點一切招呼耶穌,而是因為她忙碌得來變得混亂了,還生出對妹妹瑪利亞的怨氣,令自己不快樂。
  • 耶穌在盛讚瑪利亞,不是等於叫她不工作,祂在讚她的靜心聆聽,一個人若有能力靜心聆聽,作出聆聽主、侍候主的姿態,那人就是有福的。
  • 瑪爾大和瑪利亞,代表兩種生活或心態的選擇,我們總遊走這兩種狀態之中,生命的藝術正在於接受這份張力,並學會取得平衡。當然,我們大家都知道,要學會取得平衡已是一生的功課。
  • 這門藝術的「要訣」,是練就屬於瑪爾大的腳及瑪利亞的心。

神父講道 – 常年期第十七週 (週四) (2016年7月28日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 13:47-53

那時,耶穌對群眾說:「天國好像撒在海裏的網,網羅各種的魚。網一滿了,人就拉上岸來,坐下,揀好的,放在器皿裏;壞的,扔在外面。在今世的終結時,也將如此:天使要出去,把惡人由義人中分開,把他們扔在火窰裏;在那裏要有哀號和切齒。這一切你們都明白了嗎?」他們說:「是的。」他就對他們說:「為此,凡成為天國門徒的經師,就好像一個家主,從他的寶庫裏,提出新的和舊的東西。」耶穌講完了這些比喻,就從那裏走了。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:47-53

47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind; 48 when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad. 49 So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous, 50 and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. 51 “Have you understood all this?” They said to him, “Yes.” 52 And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.” 53 And when Jesus had finished these parables, he went away from there.

—The Gospel of the Lord.
